Carl's Drive-In expansion, entertainment center will be presented to O'Fallon, Missouri, zoning committee

A new Carl's Drive-In restaurant and an entertainment center with go-karts, a carousel and more will be presented at the Oct. 6 zoning meeting.

O'FALLON, Mo. — An exciting new proposal for a restaurant and family-friendly entertainment center is heading to the O'Fallon Planning and Zoning Committee next month.

According to a Facebook post from 3rd Ward Councilman Nathan Bibb, the development would go in the empty lot between Missouri Rush Soccer and Barron Swim School, near Interstate 64 and Highway DD.
