Round of Honks for Chet and  #TheDaytripper​ team for including us in the Lubbock episode.  Here's what Texas Highways Magazine: The Official Travel Magazine of Texas​ included about us in their May issue.

7:00 P.M. As the sun began to drop in the sky, I decided to polish off the day at the Stars & Stripes Drive-In Theatre. I parked my car in front of the giant outdoor screen as those around me set out lawn chairs and blankets. At the on-site 50’s Cafe, I ordered popcorn, soda, and a Chihuahua Sandwich made famous by the Sky-Vue Drive-In in Lamesa and now served by the same family here in Lubbock. This “sandwich,” comprised of chili, pimento cheese, and cabbage between two crispy corn tortillas, became an instant classic in my mouth. Ay Chihuahua!  
 
The sky exploded with color as the sun set over the Texas prairie. Soon, the glow of the screen became our predominant light. And while movies are usually a means to escape reality, at that moment there was no place I would rather be than sitting under the stars on the High Plains of 
Lubbock. So, whether you follow my footsteps or forge your own path, I hope to see you on the road.
