Great Ice Cream: Price an Excuse for Two or More Scoops

I can only review the ice cream, not ordering anything else, but it was excellent! A bit steep to pay 3.50 for one scoop but additional scoops make it come out much more reasonable. I appreciated the justification for "having to" order more scoops. ;>) Service was fairly quick and definitely... read more

Very underwhelming. Ordered a chicken sandwhich, ham and cheese sandwhich, and a large tots and came out to $21.50. FAR from worth that price. Expected more, got less. Seeing the size of scoop you get for $3.50 on their ice cream cones made me glad I didn't grab one of those as well. Oh, and don't expect to go there... More

Love the ice cream. Horrified to read the sign in the window clearly stating that the refuse to serve anyone with a major food allergy. Clear violation of the law. Despicable behavior.

While driving along the boring I-5 corridor in Oregon, and keeping your eyes open for the area's "speed traps", stop and get a quick meal or better yet an ice cream at K&R Drive Inn (Rice Hill). You are not getting anything fancy, just delicious! When you pull into the parking lot, sometimes the spaces are all full closest to... More

Living in Corvallis, we don't get down to the Rice Hill drive-in very often anymore, but when we are down that way it has always been a tradition to stop for milk shakes or ice cream cone. Why? Because there is a reason places like this develop a positive reputation and following. Sadly, the very things that made this place... More

K&R Drive Inn, Rice Hill 6/10/15 It may not look good but it's what’s inside that counts. A friend in Eugene told us about this place. Word of mouth is the best advertisement you can get. I would have never seen it from the Hwy. If for some reason I had taken this off-ramp I probably would not give this... More

We enjoyed stopping at this local hotspot. They specialize in Umpqua Ice Cream, but their burgers and tater tots were just fine for our taste. Regretably, they serve Pepsi products, but their Root Beer was drinkable. Caution, though...drink refills are $2 bucks and No Bathrooms.

Great tasting ice cream but so much cheaper in Roseburg. The sign is confusing. Asked for a small and a two scoop which it should mean the same by the picture. It is also run down in appearance than the past many years that we have come through and stopped.

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.
