Porkys Drive-In, located at 1890, University Ave. W., St. Paul, MN has been a St. Paul institution since 1953. Possibly the last true drive-in resturant in St. Paul. I know the first Sonic in the twin cities opened in St. Paul, a couple of weeks ago but I don’t think it is quite the same. It amazes me how some businesses live on, and become a kind of tradition. If you have never been to Porkys at least stop by and get some onion rings, even the smell of them cooking is worth the visit.
Porkys is very crowded in the evening during the summer months. The night I took this picture the lot was full and every table in the outside seating area was taken.
