Rudy’s set to open for the season Saturday in La Crosse

After a long hard winter, many of us are looking for any signs of spring..

And an annual one is popping up in La Crosse again.

Rudy’s Drive-in is set to open Saturday.

Employees have spent the past few days getting ready for customers.

Staff are also busy brewing root beer, which involves blending water, sugar and syrup.

The mixture is then carbonated so it’s ready to be served.

Owner Gary Rudy says it won’t just be your old favorites on the menu.

“This summer we are going to do June, July, August and maybe September, a special burger of the month, so stay tuned for that, I think that’s something new and exciting,” said Rudy’s Drive-In owner Gary Rudy.

Rudy’s Sparta location will likely open the first week of April, depending on the weather.
