We visited on a Sunday and this place was packed! Service was wonderful. And the food? Well, bravo! Wonderfully perfect pork BBQ with cole slaw and THE BEST onion rings (crunchy, sweet). Hubby really enjoyed his foot-long and we both loved the iced tea.

What a fun spot! The atmosphere is terrific. Ordering both inside via the table phones and outside via curb service was great. Our waiter was really friendly and funny, and the food was just as expected. A grand old fashioned drive-in.

Raspberry milkshakes! Butterscotch too! How to choose?? Maybe one of each? Grilled cheese kid's meal in a cardboard car! A necessary stop whenever we are visiting the grand! The music will make you open your car door and jump out to boogie!

A trip back in time...this drive-in restaurant is a great stop for anyone. The burgers are simply the best with old-fashioned milkshakes and root beer. Quick service and a great place for families.
