As in you order/eat from your car with the wood through the windows? Not too many.

White Spot still does it. Don't know any one-offs around the city that still do that.

Never tried them out. But there's a place called Lost in the 50's Drive-in.

They're located in the Edmonds, Burnaby area.

Most White Spot does the drive in thing where you order then eat in your car. Well, at least all the ones I have been to.. 152nd and 101 ave, King George and 102 and yes the 72nd and Scott Rd.

Is Wally's Burgers still open? I heard they moved to a different location from along Kingsway?

White Spots are still the place to find drive-in food. Wally's Burgers, when they were on Kingsway, didn't have drive-in service.

There was the Rodeo Drive-in in Langley, but that's been gone for awhile

Lost in the 50's sounds cool, but most of the reviews seem to be on the critical side. For an authentic 50's drive-in, it's a short drive down to Boomer's Drive-in in Bellingham (exit 252). The burgers and fries (waffle cut!) are awesome, and affordable. Otherwise, a little closer, but still in the states, is Sonic at exit 262.

I miss the Rodeo Drive-In. Though it wasn't in Langley. It was on hwy 10 and 152nd. It is now a commercial plaze with a TD Bank, Cyclone Taylor Sports, Timmies...

as long as I'm doing the slamming I guess

It used to be a great spot, just the shell, Chevron and Rodeo Drive in... I can still taste those juicy burgers and the deep fried mushrooms were beyond perfect and greasy!!

It's not a drive-in.

White Spot on Lougheed hwy & Gilmour has a drive-in as well as the one on Marine drive by knight street.
