Amazing place that deserves and welcomes respect. You better eat the chicken gizzards. The food is amazing and coming from a Panama City native that resides in Atlanta, you should visit this place every time on your way to the beach. My parents loved this place as much as I do now. Ignore the corporate garbage and support local business,... More

I have been coming here since 1977. I think it dates back to the early 60's. The food here is great and this place is very nostalgic for me. If you visit PC or PCB, you have to give the place a try for lunch!

Stopped by this little place today. Never heard of it before, just drove by and decided to stop in. Had a corn dog and chocolate milk shake. Must say we were not disappointed. It may be across the bridge from the beach, but if you happen to be on that side, stop by. Love going to places that locals patronize.... More

Waitress & her little girl that came out to the car was so very nice! A big variety of food that was reasonably priced. They do have a Drive-Thru or bring it out to your car. The portions were great. They don't forget a thing when putting in the condiments, etc. I'll go back for sure!

This is not the typical fast food drive-in. You have to wait because they make all the food fresh. Best burgers made from scratch.

Growing up in the area, I remember 3 drive in restaurants - Chicken Box, Jimmys and the Tally-Ho. The Tally Ho has certainly stood the test of time. Still serving hamburgers, hot dogs and boxed dinners with full service to your car. Still serving fries and rings in large enough portions to be shared.

We went to Tally Ho for the first time even though we have lived in PC for a few years. It a so much fun, 50/60's music, car hops and really good food. It was like being on a date as a teenager (which was many moons go😀). They offer a wide range of food, service was excellent, thank you... More

I have been coming to Tally Ho since I was a kid. Like curb service and the food is excellent. My boyfriend buys the cubans and I get the liver and gizzards. Great food.

This drive inn has been in business for years...it's actually a landmark in Panama City. I would strongly recommend you trying there fried chicken it's as close to home cooking that you can get and I promise you will not be disappointed I go there and eat every time I go to Panama City.
