Ortonville A&W Drive-In

One of a small handful of drive-ins left in the state transporting guests back to a simpler time of cruisin' and milkshakes. Roy W. Allen opened his first rootbeer stand in 1919 in Lodi, California. A glass sold for a mere 5 cents. In 1922, one of the Lodi stand employees, Frank Wright formed a partnership with Mr. Allen and so was born the now famous A&W Root beer.
