Even before you walk in the door, it’s clear that Bearden’s is all about Happy Days-era fun. The outside of the 66-year-old restaurant is adorned with red-and-white awnings and a silhouette of a red convertible. The airy interior is classic diner décor —aqua leatherette booths and chairs, neon signs, vintage photos, teddy bear mustard and ketchup bottles, and a model train that circles a track just below the tin ceiling. Menu? What do you think? Burgers, hot dogs, BLTs, and a heap of other time-tested sandwiches, served with fries, onion rings, fried clams, chips and other sides in red plastic baskets. Don’t forget that thick malt. The prices, compensating for inflation, are actually pretty close to what you would have paid in the ’50s. And if you call ahead, they’ll bring your meal to your car, drive-in style. Cruise-ins take place on Monday evenings in warm weather. 440-331-7850
