Iconic area Drive In restaurant under new ownership

A beloved drive-in restaurant (Dari Isle Drive-In in Minnedosa, MB) has new owners for the 2023 season.

Upon acquiring the establishment located at 11 6th Ave NE, Zac Easton and Cass Cardy immediately went to work putting their stamp on the future of the business. While the restaurant had been take-out only for the previous two years the couple decided to reopen and renovate the dining room, giving it a whole new, retro look. The booths were fixed, new checkered floor tiles were installed, new prints were placed on the walls, and a music system was also added.

While the interior underwent a makeover, the biggest change may have come from the kitchen. The couple introduced a number of new wrinkles to the menu including smash burgers with all-beef, no-filler patties made fresh (never frozen) daily and curds in their poutine. An ISLE STYLE burger, iconic FAT BOY burger, and a number of new ice cream specials (ice cream nachos & s’more parfait) were added to the menu.
