The Tom-Tom Drive-In was a popular place to stop for a bite to eat in the 1940s. It was across the street from Johnnie McCraw's White Pig Stand located a 505 S. Armstrong Ave. People could order from their cars and have their food brought to them, sometimes by a waitress on skates. "With its drumming Native American motif, the Tom-Tom's flashing neon sign - itself a type of drum on top of the building- encouraged customers to stop." (Hunt, Donna Hord and Bryant, Mavis Anne. Denison. Images of America,. Arcadia Publishing, c2011)
