Translation of carhop in Spanish:


Pronunciation /ˈkɑrhɑp/ /ˈkɑːhɒp/


  • 1

    persona que atiende a los clientes en sus coches (in US: in drive-in restaurants)
    • By switching, in 1948, to what the McDonald brothers called ‘Speedee Service’ - which involved eliminating carhops, dishes, and the like - they were able to lower their costs, and thus the prices they charged.
    • At this joint, customers pulled up under the long awning stretched across the parking lot and waited for one of the carhops to come out and take the order.
    • Long before there were fast-food drive-thrus, there were carhops slinging chili dogs and orange shakes at The Varsity, which opened in 1928 and now has four locations around town.
    • It's still there today, like a 1950s postcard from California, with carhops still taking curb-side orders for burgers, fries and those heavenly chilled mugs of root beer.
