Hands down, the best burgers in Kingston. The standard fries are a bit greasy so it is recommended to go for an upgrade to curly fries.

Fun visit to Drifters. The waitress that helped us was so friendly. Went out of her way to make us feel welcomed. We got a pitcher of beer, ice cream and some poppers. I think their poppers are some the best around.
