Scotty's Drive-in (now Daddy's Bar & Grill)
Aberdeen, SD
Scotty's Drive-in opened in 1962. It was originally part of a chain with other locations in Mitchell, SD [gone]; Glendive, MT [gone]; Bismarck, ND; Idaho Falls, ID; and Scottsbluff, NE. If there are or were others, I'd love to know about them. In 2009, this place became Daddy's Bar & Grill and the sign was adapted. [map]

Willert's Tastee Treet
Yankton, SD
Willert's Tastee Treet opened in 1950 as part of a Tastee Treet franchise. For more, see this website. [map]

Burger Time
Sioux Falls, SD
B&G Milky Way
Sioux Falls, SD
Burger Time was founded in 1987 with the first location in Fargo, ND. There are eight location now in Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota. I don't believe any of the other locations have a peaked roof like this which makes me wonder if this building wasn't adapted from another chain restaurant. For more, see this website. [map]

The B&G Milky Way opened around 1954. The building originally housed another drive-in known as Ray's Diner. There are now four other B&G Milkyway locations in the Sioux Falls area. For more, see this website. [map]
