Warr Acres, OK
The Del Rancho Drive-in chain is based in Oklahoma City and has about two dozen locations in Oklahoma and northern Texas. The first location opened in Oklahoma City in 1959.

The Del Rancho Drive-in building in Moore sure looks like a former Biff-Burger.

The third Del Rancho Drive-in shown above in Oklahoma City has been abandoned since at least 2008. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

The Del Rancho Drive-in in Warr Acres was originally built as a Sonic Drive-in. It was remodeled for Del Rancho and opened in 2011.

There is another location in Tahequah, OK.

Pauls Valley, OK
Ballard's Drive-in opened in 1951. The restaurant features car hops and indoor seating.

Wayne's Drive Inn
Lawton, OK
Wayne's Drive Inn opened in 1950 and this was the third location built. In the early 1960s, this location on Sheridan Rd. was rebuilt. It changed from indoor seating to a carhop-style drive-in. This sign was built in recent years. The other locations are gone. However, a new Wayne's Drive Inn was built on Cache Rd. around 2005. For more, see this website.

former Mac's Drive-in
Lawton, OK
Mac's Drive-in now houses a used car dealership. This sign looks remarkably similar to this former restaurant sign in Chicago.
