Go ahead, laugh...they have them in New Orleans, and Dallas! The way they'd get away with it was, in N.O. anyway, most of the drive thru's were daquiri stores (I'm talking 25 plus different flavors, each with it's own mixer/freezer) and when you drove up, they'd take your order (32oz Marguarita for me!) and when you'd get to the window, there's your drink, in a styrofoam cup with a lid, and (here's the legal part) a SEALED straw! Viola'!...a closed container! It was your own fault if you happened to accidently open your straw on the way home and it made it's way into the lid!
Dallas was a different monster, and the drive thru was only used after (legal) hours, and on Sundays due to the "Blue Law". You still had to wait until noon to have the drive thru experience, but the rest of the store or bar would be closed, hence staying legal (because the 'Store' wasn't open for business) and still being able to sell!
Of course it ALL kind of promotes drinking and driving, but us responsible kind of folk could still use the designated drun...uh, driver to get home with!
I'm sorry, but we do not have the staff at the current time for a drive thru, unless someone hits a wall with their car, then we'd have to think about it.
