Husband had the lamb burger, I had the eagle patty melt, very good! Also liked the dipping sauces with the hand cut fries! They do offer a kids items, it's not on the menu just ask your server.

The burgers are great with so many choices. We also love all of the unique sauce options for the fries. They also offer different choices of meat for the more adventurous, such as bison and elk. I usually stick with good ole beef. Just ask...More

Not at all what you would expect from the outside. Rather than a typical greasy spoon, this is a clean, well-put-together restaurant with a menu full of burgers made from exotic meats (elk, bison, etc.) and out-of-the-box ingredients (salted caramel, for example). Our server was...More

This is one of those "looks can be deceiving" places. From the outside Eagle Drive-In looks like a local "cheap eats" drive-in. The first impression of the exterior does little to dispel the exterior initial impression (maybe 10 tables and a 5-seat bar). However, one...More

Unable to get chicken sandwich or a turkey burger here which is so disappointing. Many many mammals on the menu. Lots of various red meat burgers and options. Disappointed in the Falafel.

If you want a tasty burger with 50's style condiments and taste, visit this drive in for a trip back in time. Fast, clean and delightful. Easy on the pocket, too.

My husband and I eat here quite often. We love the interesting menu and never grow tired of choosing something new. Although we do have a few favorites as well. The service is great, we've never had a problem

This little restaurant really does have some good food - everything from the standard burger to more exotic offerings (bison burgers and more). It is always packed (a good sign) so it takes awhile to get food and drinks, or anything from the kitchen. There...More
