Idaho Falls, ID
This Scotty's Drive-In opened in 1964 and was originally part of a chain. By 1966, there were seven locations in at least six states. The chain disbanded in 1968 and the surviving locations began operating independently. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]
The other three surviving locations are in Aberdeen, SD, Bismarck, ND, and Scottsbluff, NE. There were other locations in Mitchell, SD; Sioux City, IA; Glendive, MT; Helena, MT, and possibly others. If you know of any others, I'd love to hear about them.
