Dandy's Drive In - A Bend Institution

In 1967 Paul Keller was intrigued by the popularity of roller skating in Southern California and wanted to bring the nostalgic carhops to Bend, Oregon. Dandy's has been going strong ever since, and people return time and again for the delicious and simple no-frill burgers and hand made shakes.
