Storm’s in Lampasas opened for business in 1950. This place was originally called the Dairy Cue. They sold soft-serve ice cream, but hamburgers were also on the menu. The business grew all through the 1950’s, and the awnings and speaker system were added during this time.
Storm’s in Lampasas is a drive-in. No indoor dining room. They do have a very nice outdoor patio. You can order from the patio and they will bring your food out to you.
They still grind their own hamburger meat and make the french fries from fresh-cut potatoes. The hamburger patties are thin. That seems to be popular with these 1950’s burger joints. Consider ordering a double meat burger or better yet the Storm’s Special.
Storm’s in Lampasas is a great example of a 1950’s drive-in. The old awnings, the menu boxes, and the speaker system are all, well, old. The provenance of this place is unquestionable. The same family has run the joint since the day they opened in 1950. The place has an authentic 1950’s feel to it. Good burgers, by the way. Give it a try, next time you’re in Lampasas Texas.
