This was an Ann Arbor hangout in the 1950's and 1960's owned by Everett Williams. Closed in 1980, a Taco Bell sits on the site as of 2023.
From Local Wiki: "In the 50s and 60s, the top 2 places for Ann Arbor teenagers to hang out were Everett's Drive-In and the A&W on West Stadium Boulevard. Everett's was Ann Arbor's version of Arnold's from Happy Days. My favorite menu item was their double-decker California Burger. When Elias Brothers Big Boy restaurants began popping up in metro Detroit but hadn't yet opened a location in Ann Arbor, I began hearing rumors from friends who had been to Big Boy that a Big Boy Hamburger was a lot like a California Burger from Everett's.
From Wystan on Flickr: "Home of the patented "California Burger," and a popular teenagers' hangout in the 1950s and 1960s, Everett's Drive In closed in 1980, and was replaced by a Taco Bell restaurant. (Everett Williams' previous enterprise was a dairy bar (with coffee and donuts, too) called the Milk Maid; it stood at 3730 Washtenaw Avenue, in the region of the present location of Arborland, but across Washtenaw Avenue; it was torn down before 1957, when the US-23 freeway interchange was built.)"
