Review - Skyline Drive-In Diner

Collect a carload for a retro-style dinner and movie ($10/head) at the recently remodelled Blacktown Skyline Drive-In.

You’ll feel like you’ve stepped onto the set of Happy Days with smiling staff in red-and-white candy striped uniforms, Creaming Soda Spiders ($6) and buttered popcorn wafting through the air.

It’s enough to create nostalgia even in those who’ve never set foot in an American drive-in’s diner!

Comfortably ensconced in a padded-vinyl booth, I take in quirky wall memorabilia before losing my head in a Peanut Butter Milkshake ($7) – it’s so good you won’t want to share.

The Classic Beef and Cheese Burger’s ($8) plump, char-grilled Angus beef patty leaves surrounding fast-food joints for dead.

You can also indulge in your own Jessica “I don't eat buffalo” Simpson moment with Original Buffalo Wings ($9) served with ranch dressing.

As for me, I was all about gently squeezing the fat, smoked Frankfurt between my Chilli Dog’s ($8) soft white buns...

...while I bent the ear of Skyline Drive-In’s General Manager, Trudi Manning.

With eighteen years of experience Trudi has seen “everything from PG-rated to XXX” as she patrols her turf, adding with a cheeky grin: “I still say we’re the cheapest motel in town.

Trudi’s also into cars, so dust off your classic car and roll on in!

PS: You can check out what's currently screening HERE or you can team your night at the drive-in with a Time Warp Package (currently $179/couple including accommodation at the Atura Hotel, movie entry and breakfast for two): HERE.
