Allen's Drive-In in Kansas City

Anyone recall Allen's Drive-in at 89th & State Line, where that ugly bank buiding is now?

Great carhop food and sit down, I was a little kid and remember classic drive in fare.

    I remember Allen's.  Seems to me they had another location or 2 too.  Pretty decent as I recollect.

    I remember the Allen's on Johnson Drive east of Belinder  fondly. It and Regan's Dari-o were right to next other.
    Both with carhops. My mother used to make my sister and her HS friends take me along to cruise the burger joints, usually in Marion McKenzie's
     mom's 61 Imapala. Midwest American Graffiti. Everyone driving through the 2 adjoining lots. It was all torn down for the first Sprint HQ.

    Allens on State Line was a fav of my family. We would sit inside, listen to the jukebox play Nat King Cole singing Rambiling Rose, and Telstar by the Tornadoes while we ate our burgers and drank cherry cokes. I was really sad when it closed.
