Amid the hills of Southern Indiana sits Wall’s Drive-In in Cannelton, Indiana.

As you can probably tell, this Perry County restaurant and ice cream parlor has been around a long time–and is still the local’s choice for soft serve or hard pack ice cream!

Pull up and park. Finding a parking spot is not a problem–the lot is huge, especially in comparison to the drive-in itself! Which is good, it does fill up with local folks looking for a sweet treat or a convenient and quick lunch or dinner that still supports a small business.

Scan the front of Wall’s Drive-In. Everything is laid out for you. The menu is located above the counter, just like at every other drive-in, as they have always done.

You’ll find your typical drive-in fare: Pork tenderloin sandwiches, Polish sausage, hot dogs, and burger. Oh, the burgers! Wall’s Drive-In is the home of the “Big Square Burger” so says the sign. As tempting as that was, for us,it was all about the ice cream!

The selection of shakes here was so much fun! When we are on the road, and especially when we had our old car that no longer had working air conditioning and only half the windows rolled down, we relied on milkshakes from local mom and pop’s to help beat the heat while enabling the kids to sip and go.

At Wall’s Drive-In, they have some fun flavors! Are  you ready for this list? They have milkshakes like banana, pineapple, orange, cherry, grape, marshmallow, peanut butter, chocolate chip, cinnamon, blue raspberry, butterscotch, and bubble gum.

Oh, and your basic flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. My cherry shake was so good! Everyone was happy with their order.
