At the Drive-In

Waiting for the dark
Lil Dude Troll recently took a few young friends to experience something they had never even known about - the drive-in movie theatre. With so few left, the drive to one was a bit long, but once there, everyone had a great time. There was just one question everyone had upon returning home - "When can we do it again?"

Watching a pretty sunset before the picture show begins
Original speaker from 1966 - and it still works great!

Fold-up chairs, blankets & pillows in the back
of a pickup with the tailgate down - this just
might be the best way to watch a movie!

David's Burgers and Woodrow Troll

Announcing the newest member of the Troll family - Woodrow Troll. Woodrow, his family members and good friends just call him Woody, was adopted a few weeks ago, and is now ready to join the rest of the family willing to share their travels and adventures. Welcome Woody!

Woody's first trip was to a David's Burgers establishment in Arkansas, a counter-serve chain offering a simple menu of house made beef burgers & fries, plus ice cream in a cool retro-style diner atmosphere. The staff is always very friendly, welcoming you as you walk in the door, saying thank you as you walk out and plenty of smiles and friendly service in-between. For several years now, David's Burgers has won the "Best Burger in Arkansas" award. Woody wouldn't go so far as to declare David's Burgers as the best in Arkansas as he has tasted many, but not all the rest and lots of folks would consider the Texas chain Whataburger to be better, but they are pretty darn good and Whataburger has only 1 or 2 locations in the state to offer competition. 

Good size burger, fresh ingredient's & fresh, hot fries
makes for a good meal for most folks.
One thing they offer is unlimited fries and that's a very good thing! They make their own fries right there on the premises throughout the day so they are always fresh. Every few minutes a server walks among the tables offering more hot fries to anyone who purchased an order with their burger. A burger and fries is usually enough to fill up a person, but if you are especially hungry, those extra fries will take care of it for you.

To finish the whole thing off, ask your server for a free sample of their soft serve ice cream. Vanilla, chocolate or vanilla/chocolate swirl. It comes in a little, tiny cup with a little tiny spoon, but it is just enough of something sweet that it perfectly tops off your meal. And the ice cream is good enough to really tempt you to come back some other time to get a whole cone or dish of it. It's pretty darn good stuff!

Woody likes the retro diner d├ęcor!
Woodrow says you should check it out. You'll be glad you did!
