Fritz's car cruise in Shawnee is the only place you can look at old cars and have your food dropped off by a train
What you may not realize is that there are two more Fritz’s locations in addition to the Crown Center restaurant. The original Fritz’s is on 18th Street in Kansas City, Kan. And then there’s the newest location, the subject of our story today, at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Pflumm in Shawnee, Kan.
I was strangely attracted to a mildly customized ’55 Ford Victoria two-door hardtop with ’60 Dodge taillights. Finished in an aqua blue and white color combination inside and out, it sort of drew me in like a refreshing oasis in the desert on this hot 100-degree day.
The Shawnee Fritz’s Cruise is relatively new in town, and working to build a following. It’s nice to have another Sunday option out there, and the location doesn’t get much more family-friendly than this.
And guess what? I took some pictures. They are in the slideshow below.
