This place reminds me of the places I would eat at when I was little. They have great food at a reasonable price. Besides hamburgers and other sandwiches, they have mushroom, onion rings, fries, and fried okra. they are all very good. The atmosphere is friendly and the people are very helpful. I like going there whenever I'm in Lee's... More

This place is great. The food is made to order so it's not for people in a hurry, but still quick. Good burgers and fries (spicy fries are a favorite). The best milkshake I've ever had.

an historical fixture in the Lee's Summit area, it should be put on the registry. Bye Bye American pie... If you want to know what it was like in the 50's Johnny is the spot, great Chile and burgers..

Love the small diner feel! Takes you back in time. Service is simple and quick. Menu hearty for any appetite. And don't forget to order a shake! Yummy! Can't lose when you chose to eat here!

Johnny Ray's Drive-In, on the north side of Highway 50 between the 291 South exit and the 3rd Street exit in Lee's Summit, MO, is your basic 1950s drive-in. Basic fare consists of burgers, fries, onion rings, and milk shakes. All very good, and hasn't changed much in the last 50 years. They still have a 'cruise night' about every... More

This is a Lee's Summit staple. Awesome burgers and bowling ally type of food. Awesome shakes, and malts. The wait staff are super friendly to kids, which is a bonus.

Health food it ain't. The menu is simple: burgers, fries and the like. Both the burgers and the fries were served quickly and were delicious, a guilty pleasure. Service was quick and friendly and the prices reasonable. Just the kind of local place we like to visit when traveling. You'll like it, too!

We take our two young grandchildren here when they request it. The burgers are good. The fries and tater tots are below par. Our 7 and 9 year olds split a Shrimp dinner and an order of fries. This costs right around $38 after we tip our server. For the quality this is WAY OVERPRICED. The decor and mood are... More
