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.

We had a horrible experience here! The person taking our order misheard what we ordered and gave us a large order of friend instead of the onion rings we had ordered. When we brought this to her attention we were told that she could make us the onion rings but it would cost us an additional $6.75 as they could... More

K&R serves Umpqua Ice Cream, which is the BEST! And since I live in Utah I don't get to visit Rice Hill very often, so it's become a tradition whenever our family travels to Oregon to visit relatives (I grew up in Drain). As far as all you "haters" complaining about ugly signs, dirty tables, and a lack of people... More

Hey, people! Why don't some of pay attention to the GLARING , INEXCUSABLE NEGATIVES ABOUT THIS drive in and simply refuse to give them your business?? Sure, they have many flavors of ice cream that's really creamy and "yummy" (a stupid, grossly overused descriptive word), but they don't make it there. They buy it, the same way anyone can buy...

Great local place just of I5 at exit 148 ( I think.) Sure, it's roadside, sure you get to eat at nice tables outside, but come on folks, this place is popular for a reason! We loved it. A bit expensive, but quality is great. Friendly service, no wait for us mid-day! Loved it and will come back again and... More

A colleague at work mentioned that I should plan a stop on my way to or from Portland at this roadside drive in for the ice cream. Boy am I glad I listened to him! You take the Rice Hill exit 148 and if going south you'll be on the same side of the road. Thirty five flavors were offered... More
