John's Drive-In is famous for its milkshakes. Locals and tourists alike are addicted, making this a busy stop, but the speedy service moves things right along. The only thing that might take a while is choosing what kind of shake to have since they have a long list of flavors including fruit and other sweet choices. Try a combination like banana-peanut butter-chocolate, and you might not have room for lunch. But you'll wish you did, with other overwhelming favorites such as their homemade yellowfin tuna salad, dolphin boats, seafood po'boys and the juicy hamburgers. For those looking for a lighter option, try the new grilled mahi and vegetable melt. Food is served to-go style, and there are several umbrella-shaded picnic tables. John's is open every day but Wednesday from spring through fall with extended hours for Thursday through Saturday nights during the summer.
