Can you guess what's on the menu at Arnold's on Happy Days?

How much did fries cost in 1955? Could you get a side salad?


Whether you pulled into the parking lot in a yellow hot rod, station wagon or motorcycle, Arnold's Drive-In had something for you.

The fast-food joint was the heart of Happy Days — and practically a character itself on the sitcom. From the Nip It pinball game and pennants on the wall to Fonzie's "office" in the bathroom, this nostalgic eatery perfectly capturing 1950s teenage hangouts.

But did you ever notice the menu board hanging on the exterior of the restaurant? Probably not. It's a pretty tiny detail. We'll show it to you at the end of the quiz. But first, see if you can guess the answers to these questions about the food at Arnold's! Order up, Marsha!

  1. Fill in the blank: "Thick _________ Malt."
  2. How much did a "Bopper Burger" cost?
  3. Is there a salad on the menu?
  4. What was the "Jefferson High Special" that cost 55¢?
  5. Which of the following was NOT an available flavor of sundae?
  6. How much did it cost for a side of french fries?
  7. One line read "Grilled Cheese & ________." What was the side that came with a grilled cheese?

I got 9 out of 11 I must’ve really liked Arnold’s Food🍔 Hey if anybody can answer this question for me I would be grateful it would solve an argument. In the first season of happy days was Richie\ Fonzie set up to be the coolest/leader or were the roles reversed? I thought it was Fonzie right from the beginning even though he was a secondary character because Richie seem to go To him For advice. Thanks everybody

Fonzie was always the coolest, Richie went to him for advice.

I remember in the 60s splitting a 12 oz bottle of pop once a week as a treat.

And remember when 'penny candy' actually *did* cost a penny apiece?

Some items were “2 for a penny”.

I remember certain candy at the store being 2 for 1 cent or 3 for 1 cent. The candies were small but still tasty. One was this chocolate thing, round, with some sprinkles or something on top of it.

5/11 LOL I love this show! Didn't pay much attention to the menu, but you can't beat those prices! :)

Not well known is the fact Arnold was thisclose to offering Cheese Fries, but decided even 1950s Milwaukee - in WISCONSIN - wasn't yet ready for such gooey goodness.

But many are aware, and grateful, he gave the celery/broccoli milkshake concept the, "No, thank you."

6 out of 11, we only got a "jerry's burger' once a year that was in June when school ended. It was our treat for moving up another grade. We never had much in our family so desserts and seconds didn't happen much; oh yeah we had jello for dessert, usually orange, yuck!

Yes the days of sharing a 12oz bottle of pop once a week for a treat
