MILWAUKEE -- There's something special about a cook treat on a warm summer day. But vanilla ice cream cones, hot fudge sundaes and chocolate malts aren't the only reason people flock to drive-ins. There's also the nostalgia -- which Brian Kramp found plenty of at Wayne's Drive-In in Cedarburg.

About Wayne’s Drive-In (website)

The Wayne’s Drive-In building started life in the early 70's as a nondescript 12 sided (dodecagon) building used for many things over the years... a snowmobile shop, a party room, a furniture refinishing & antique store & a storage facility etc. etc. Until... In 1998 Steve Jeske from Haag Design in Grafton was tasked with designing it into a 50’s style Drive-In Restaurant. Many early Drive-In’s were similar in shape. Wayne’s Drive-In was born from that design which won The Daily Reporter's Top Small Project of 1999 award.
