A restaurant in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, has turned into a drive-in and added a carhop service amid the COVID-19 outbreak on Tuesday.
Customers could be seen ordering and consuming food and ice creams from the comfort of their cars outside the Brownstone Pancake factory, as masked servers brought their orders to them.
«[It's] my daughter's 15th birthday, it's the best we could do under the... Еще quarantine,» said customer Lisa.
«You got to make do with what you can. It's crazy but the food's good,» pondered customer Mike.
«It's great. It's a nice thing to do, it's more comfortable if you're sitting at a table, but it's fun,» enthused customer Karen.
Carhop service, where servers bring food to people as they dine in their cars appeared in the US in the 1920s but fell out of fashion and declined as the drive-through restaurant came to supplant the drive-in dining model in the 1960s.
New Jersey has more than 146,000 cases of coronavirus and 10,356 related deaths, according to data complied by Johns Hopkins University.
