Drive-In Restaurants Are Making a Comeback and Here Are a Few You Can Try
Enjoy a restaurant meal while social-distancing.
(SPOT.ph) With the new normal comes the need for alternative ways to dine—and one approach taken by restaurants is to offer drive-in dining. These places allow you to park your car at designated spots, then order and dine in from right inside your vehicle. The concept is nothing new—it was especially popular in the U.S. back in the '50s—but more restaurants around the world are turning back to it given the need for social distancing today. Locally, we have the limitations on regular dine-in capacity by the Inter-Agency Task Force in place.
Here are a couple of restaurants around the country where you can experience it for yourself:
This establishment opened their first drive-in branch in Cainta on July 24. You get to enjoy their uber-tender roast beef (which was eighth on our Top 10 Roast Beef in Manila list) with the lush, green view of Sitio Elena Events Venue. They are open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Chef Resty's is at Sitio Elena Events Venue, Don Celso Tuason Avenue, Valley Golf Road, Cainta, Rizal.
Max's Retaurant offers what they call the Park n' Dine option at selected branches, among which are their Mindanao Avenue, Tiendeitas, and Antipolo stores. Just place your orders and pay via credit card, and your food will be delivered straight to you in your car.

You can feast on Army Navy's famous fried chicken right from the comfort of your car. The fast-food restaurant has designated spots where you can park your vehicle. From there, you can order and dine from your car at the following branches: Jupiter, Visayas Avenue, Hampton, Cainta, BF Homes, NLEX Drive & Dine, Petron NLEX Marilao, Petron NLEX Bocaue, Imus Bayan, Tagaytay, Daang Hari, Calamba, Lipa, Caltex SLEX, and Shell SLEX Southbound.
