´╗┐in restaurant era in Boulder hit fast lane in '50s

Bush's was built on the site of Boulder's first drive in restaurant, True's Thirst Shop, opened by Roy True in 1930. A few years later, he remodeled it to resemble a barrel and renamed it True's Barrel. Then, in 1940, the building was razed and replaced with a restaurant named Happy Jack's Oasis.

When the Twinburger Drive Ateria opened in 1956 on the south side of Arapahoe Avenue, east of 33rd Street, patrons enjoyed the brand new concept of ordering their meals through a speaker at a drive up window. The management claimed the restaurant served each customer in 45 seconds. Supposedly, all drivers had to do was count the cars in line to know how long they'd have to wait for their orders.

The Drive In's specialty was the "Bush Burger," a kind of hamburger club sandwich that included bread, meat, bread, meat, and more bread, with lettuce, tomato and cheese wedged inside. Hungry patrons topped off their meals with frosted root beers.

Eventually, Bush's was sold and the Park Central building was constructed adjacent to the former drive in. After several remodels, the building now houses Mustard's Last Stand. Although the restaurant still reflects an earlier era, only pedestrians can access the drive in window today.

Another early drive in was the Nifty Nix, at 20th Street and Arapahoe Avenue. The "nix" came from the name of the owner, Henry Mullenix. Adjacent to the eatery was an auto camp called the Nifty Nix Cottages. For 32 years before the restaurant closed in 2012, the former Nifty Nix building housed Daddy Bruce's Bar B Que.

Today, most of Boulder's fast food restaurants of the '50s have been replaced by new development. Some of the drive ins that today's old timers might remember include the Bar None, the A Root Beer Stand (later replaced by the Snarf Shop), the H Drive Inn Cafe, Dog'n' Suds (with Goofy on its sign) and Gaylord's Applepit Drive In (now Burger King).

Mention of carhops likely referred to Bush's Drive In. Catering to the high school and college crowds, patrons were served in their cars in the parking lot on the northwest corner of Broadway Boulevard and Arapahoe Avenue.

Twinburger was particularly popular after movies at the Motorena, also on Arapahoe Avenue (east of 63rd Street). Fendi Bag Monster Advertisements for the drive in theater stated, "Good shows in the comfort of your car."

After World War II, gas was cheap and cars were big and roomy. People didn't want to get out of them, even to eat. And that's a big reason the drive in restaurant era took off in the 1950s.

The October 1957 issue of Drive In Magazine praised Twinburger's efficiency. Ordering a meal there was the subject of a Camera story, as well. According to the Camera's write up, the new drive in "eliminated the disagreeable practice of sounding the horn or blinking the car lights to catch the carhop's attention."
