Whitson's Famous Foods
Whitson's Famous Foods ("The South's Most Beautiful Drive-In") was a drive-in restaurant on the Bessemer Super Highway two blocks east of Auto Movies drive-in cinema. It was owned by Harry Whitson and was open every day from 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM. The interior featured booths and diner counter while curb service was available to cars parked outside. An early public address system provided piped-in music to diners.
The Whitson's building was clad in white-painted sheet metal with curved glass at the corners and a mosaic tile floor with chrome fixtures inside.
