While I rate the food as average Drive-In style food, the place is just fun! It truly is a throwback with original drive-in speakers, etc. Be sure to have the onion rings!

Typical, greasy drive-in food but if that is what you were looking for then you found the right spot! They are very friendly and extremely affordable. The service is typically very fast and the milkshakes are very good, pecan pie is not good at all do not get it unless you like mystery gel substance with a thin veneer of... More

Great drive-in/diner food at good prices. We stopped in for burgers and shakes which were great. They have a pickle shake option, but we did not try it. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There's a river right behind the parking so you have a good view for your meal.

Great inexpensive stop on the river. Get your burger all the way (w/slaw) - you won't regret it. Wish my chocolate shake was a little more chocolaty, but it was still good. I will definitely be back. Drive-in and eat in the car/take-out; enter on the right to order at the counter and dine in or take-out; enter on the... More

One of the WORST diner experiences ever! 3 of 4 orders were wrong...icing on the cake...the baked beans must have been opened out of the can and poured directly on the plate!!! Awful awful awful!

Amazing drive in place to eat. Best hamburgers around and beautiful scenery of the river next to the building. A must stop every time I come through Bryson City.

We come up to Bryson often and usually make at least one trip to Nabers for hamburgers, hotdogs, onion rings, chocolate shake... Your typical drive in food. It has always been consistent and satisfying the guilty pleasure drive in food. We often go after hiking and like sitting in our car down by the river. Remember cash only...

We came to Bryson City for the first time and had read some reviews on Nabors drive in . We decided to try it thinking the fried chicken would be good. The chicken in fact is not chicken but Cornish game hens which is way smaller and has a different taste. The "chicken" was served to us burnt and very... More
