One of the most popular places the Class of 1955 visited regularly was Deci's Drive-In. They had the most delicious foot-long chili dogs and burgers to say nothing of their fried clams. A Friday or Saturday at the drive-in theater at the "Notch" wasn't complete without a chili dog, fries and a Coke at Deci's. Besides having wonderful food the Deci's brothers, Tony and Crescent were entertaining with their dry sense of humor and the jargon used to place your order. If you wanted everything on your hamburger Tony would shout, "Drag it through the garden."

Deci's closed sometime in the 70's and they are sorely missed today as fast-food drive-ins dispense food without taste or personality.
