There is a lot of neat things to look at at Arnold's Drive In and the 50's stuff is really cool. However, I think it could be cleaner. The food was just ok.

It was a nice experience. The food was typical American cuisine and reasonably priced. It had the unique option to sit in either the 60's section or the 70's. You also have the option of utilizing the drive in if you choose. The cons; The...More

We love all their food. Mickey Mouse Club or Charlie's Tuna are my favorites. Sad to see they're selling the business at the end of this year; hope to see new owners. There's a bit of a wait for your food but it's worth it!

I love this place! The food is wonderful and the malts and shakes are the real deal. The atmosphere is like stepping back in time plus I love all the local items on the walls. They also do car shows during the summer or head...More
