Back in the late 1950's there was a circular drive in restaurant in Ventura,CA that I think I recall it being about 5 points. I just want to know the name of it.

Merle's was the favorite
by: Russell

Life was fun and good in Ventura during 1960, 1961, 1962 and 1963. You could cruise the loop through Ventura on Main St. and Thompson and hang out at Merle's for awhile and then cruise the loop again. Friday and Saturday nights were cruise nights and everybody was in town. Merle's was our favorite Ventura High School hang out. It was so popular that there is a picture of Merle's Drive In in our 1963 Ventura High Year Book.
