Forget the robin.

Schuett's opening every year was really the actual first sign of Spring!

Deep fried foot-long with the works - yum, yum.

 

The deep-fried foot-long hotdogs were a staple in this town for a long time

 

c.1970

  Loved the pizza burgers!

05 25       Drive-in restaurant owners have no need for a temperature gauge.  They don’t have to look up from their sizzling burgers to know when spring has finally arrived.  All they have to do is eye the orders piling up.  Judy’s and Schuett’s, Watertown’s only two seasonal drive-in restaurants, are usually busy in spring and early summer when warm weather entices people outdoors.  Mother Nature was not cooperative earlier this season, but climbing temperatures mean more traffic.  Both family restaurants have customers who have been coming back for years, as soon as the open sign appears in the window.  Good food has brought them back again and again.
