here). The ad ran in the Lorain Journal on September 7, 1957 – 56 years ago this month.
According to the ad, there were two other Lenny's outlets besides the one in Lorain – one out on Route 113, and the other at the intersection of E. Broad and Abbe Road. Does anybody out there remember any of these?
I'm still intrigued that this drive-in was located next door to the present-day Mutt & Jeff's.
Anyway, the ad makes a pretty convincing case for Lenny's jumbo hamburger, on special all month for a mere 25 cents. The ads quaintly suggests serving them at showers, parties, and clubs. (I think if more jumbo hamburgers were served at showers, many women wouldn't hate attending them so much – at least my spouse wouldn't.)
By June 1965, the Sandy's Thrift and Swift Drive-in had opened just down the road at the Lorain Plaza Shopping Center. Their hamburgers were a mere 15 cents. But by then, Lenny's and its successor drive-ins at that location were gone anyway.
