The Clock Drive-In Restaurant opened with much fanfare at the intersection of South Blvd and Poindexter Rd on Thursday May 29, 1958. They specialized in barbecue and fried chicken (served with a side of honey!). Eventually, the drive-in part of the restaurant diminished, and the restaurant became known as the Clock Bar-B-Cue House and featured a more traditional Greek diner menu (in addition to the barbecue). The restaurant closed in the early '80's and the land was sold in 1984. The land is currently owned by the Pepsi Bottling Co. and the building and land served as a vending warehouse station until just recently when the building was torn down.
