Don't judge by the looks

It doesn't look like much, and it's not a sit down restaurant, but don't pass by without a stop! Excellent ice cream in a large selection of flavors. A hidden gem the locals have known about for generations.

We've enjoyed stopping here on our trips to and from Oregon. They give generous portions of very good Umpqua icecream - and many varieties to choose from. This trip, we had 6 family members we were traveling with and we opted for the "pig-out". It consisted if 15 scoops of any combination of flavors served in a large paperware cereal... More

We stopped at K & R Drive In for a break from a long drive on I-5. We enjoyed a cone of Umpqua espresso madness ice cream and a huckleberry shake. Both were tasty and hit the spot. Nice to find a cold and sweet treat in this rural landscape.

I've been coming here since the 1980s, but I'm rarely driving by when they are open. Decided to stop in today for ice cream. They have every flavor that Umpqua makes - many of those flavors are hard to find in a grocery store, so it's great to get coconut cream or salted caramel peanut or some other hard to... More

Great burgers and fries, and delicious ice cream to top that off. All around a nice stop on I-5. I've seen some reviews complaining about the high price, but as far as I'm concerned it's a small price to support a locally owned and operated business. In a world run by faceless, heartless corporations pumping out mystery meat processed food... More

Our family always stops here on trips down I-5. Good burgers and fries, but the ice-cream is the best. So many flavors to choose from.

This diner is a must stop location when traveling up or down I-5 through southern Oregon. While their prices aren't that inexpensive, their serving sizes are huge -- and they have a wide variety of scrumptious Umpqua ice creams to pick from. I don't remember EVER going past this exit without stopping during their hours of operation. :-)

I read some of the reviews before I decided to stop in, and I think the negative ones are WAY off base! Everything about this place screams nostalgia! The people working were so friendly! They even let us sample some ice cream flavors before choosing! SO many choices!! The portion sizes are huge! We all got 2 scoops and shared... More

This little restaurant is such a delightful alternative to all the fast food chains! The burgers are delicious and made fresh to order! Enjoy your icecream while you wait as always yummy creamy chocolate chip mint is my favorite. We were a bit hesitant after reading some of the bad reviews but took the chance and were glad we did!!... More

My whole family LOVES the ice cream at K & R. Lots of choices, wonderful ice cream, and great value. One day I really want to see someone buy the 6 scoop cone, but we usually settle for a shake. And the deep fried whole baby mushrooms.
