Just like back in the day. Walk up and order your food or ice cream, grab a seat at a picnic table and enjoy!

Great shakes and burgers. Nice for lunch, easy dinner or dessert. No indoor seating but plenty of shade.

Classic burger and ice cream spot! Still going strong as these type of burger stands disappear. Treat yourself to a trip back in time to sit a spell and enjoy a good malt, fries, and burger.

A great drive in just outside of the Smokies. Burgers, fries, and ice cream was a perfect meal after a day at Cades Cove or tubing. Show them your River Rat wristbands and get 10% off.

I finally got my corndog on our last day here. It was amazing! My husband loved his Vanilla Malt and I loved (but probably shouldn't have eaten) the Hot Fudge Cake Sunday. Will go back if we are ever in the area.

We ALWAYS make sure to stop in here and grab a burger, fries, shake or ice-cream. The ice cream and shakes absolutely can't be beat and after a day of exploring the hamburgers really hit the spot. Yummy!
