The Dusty Star Drive-In Diner is coming back to the GTA this month with new food vendors and the same '50s magic.

From September 24 to 26, they will be hosting a pop-up immersive '50s experience in Etobicoke with a live '50s rock band, new food from Fidel Gastro's food truck, an outdoor night market, and beer from Mascot Brewery.

Similar to their previous pop-up this summer, the food will be served by carhop rollerskating servers in true 1950s drive-in style and you can dine in your car or at picnic tables.

The servers and performers will be dressed in '50s inspired garb, and The Dusty Star Drive-In Diner even encourages guests to dress up in the spirit if they want to!

Unlike the previous pop-up, this theme will be strictly '50s so you'll be able to hone in on the costume theme if you feel like participating.

The new menu will feature a honey mustard fried chicken sandwich for $14, a double smash burger for $12, Pad Thai fries for $10, and regular fries for $7. However, more food vendors may be thrown into the mix.

Price: $28 per car or to reserve a picnic table, $8 per walk-in ticket

Address: 37 Advance Rd. #105, Etobicoke, ON

When: September 24 to 26, 2021

Why You Need To Go: To enjoy a '50s themed night out with live music, good food and shopping.
