Recalled through the sepia-toned filter of nostalgia, you can imagine a place like Peter’s Drive-in smack in the middle of a Bob Seger song, where local kids gather “trying to lose the awkward teenage blues…Workin’ on our night moves.”

So it seems for a loyal follower of Flatland, who asked our curiousKC team to look into the history of the long-lost Kansas City, Kansas, eatery, which once was a hub for the hungry looking to check out some hot rods and hot bods on long summer nights.

Enjoy the attached video. If you remember the joint, it just might make you hungry – and perhaps a little misty.

Unless you need to cash a check.
