Guerne Heights Drive-In was opened in 1956 by Richard and Jane Cutter. The Cutter family operated the business until 1993, when they decided to retire.
The business sat unopened in 1994.
In 1995, Randy Wengerd and Beverly Wengerd purchased the business from the Cutters. Bev was a nurser, and Randy was a dairy farmer.
In 1998 Randy and Beverly switched to Dairymens/Borden 10% milkfat ice cream mix, and we haven't looked back. In 2019, Randy and Beverly sold their shares in the business to their oldest, Adam Wengerd. Adam graduated from Waynedale in 1994 and attended Heidelberg College where he studied music. After many years in retail and restaurant management, Adam returned home to run the business in 2009.
We truly are a local company.
Our team is made up of a bunch of friends who happen to work together. We see a lot of our customers every day. They treat us just like family. That's a good thing, right?
We're passionate about delivering a mouth-watering experience. When you choose to eat here, you're eating the best ingredients we can find served to you fresh and hot (or cold, as it were).
You shouldn't have to settle for hot dogs that you can make at home. You shouldn't have to eat a frozen little burger, either. Here at Guerne, your food is always made while you wait, which means it tastes like, you know, real food.
We believe that everyone has the right to good food. So bring the family, bring your friends, or just bring yourself, and enjoy the best little drive-in around!
We get to serve ice cream for a living. Why wouldn't we love what we do?
Our community voted us Best Hot Dog in the area in 2019.
We promise to always provide value and outstanding service, but mother nature will provide some amazing sunsets!
