Midway Oh Boy Part 3

1967 Elyria phone book ad

By the mid-1960's, the restaurant had been sold to Pat and Jim Wracker and was now known as the Midway Oh Boy Drive In. The mayonnaise-based secret sauce that Millie Krugman created was now described in ads as "the tantalizing sauce". (The sauce really is unique – mildly onion-flavored – and great for dipping french fries in as well.)

Here's another phone book ad from 1970.

In the early 1970's, the Wrackers moved the restaurant to its present location at 6620 Lake Avenue. Here's a 1971 ad with a nice drawing of the new building.
