Scotty's Drive-in Restaurant Sign - Bismarck, North Dakota

The original Scotty's sign was replaced shortly after its ownership change in 2007. It's overall style is the same, however the colors are much different.


Once a regional chain, Scotty's Drive-in has been in Bismarck since 1965. The Scotty's building expanded in 1985 to, for the first time, include indoor seating. Scotty's serves a standard "fast food" menu, cooked fresh. One of Scotty's most famous menu offerings is the Rebel Burger, named after local KFYR radio personality "Ol' Reb" Jack Fisher. The Bismarck location is one of only a couple survivors of the chain.


Bismarck is sort of a hording ground for former national and regional chains still in existence, including the only remaining King's Food Host still in operation (as The Woodhouse). Read my blog entitled "Old Habits Die Hard With Bismarckans" about this topic here:
