Stopped by about 1:45pm on a Sat afternoon. Had a little trouble finding it but I'm new to town. :). Went through the drive through & ordered the chicken basket. Lots of food (my son & I shared- he's six). Fries & nuggets were hot & fresh. Had a little wait but the server at the window was friendly. Much... More

Just like the places I remember as a kid. Everything is fresh made, hot and the service is great . The first time I went into Ron's it was taken back to how it used to be. The prices are fair, the fries are plenty. I recommend the shrimp basket.

For many, many years I've gone to Ron's for their "Big R" burger. I order mine with lots of onions and extra sauce. These burgers are really delicious with many layers of flavor. As I type this I am craving more "Big R's" so guess where I'm headed.

It is your typical burger place but the shakes are off the hook! I love a good bacon cheeseburger and they do not disappoint!!! I was in Spokane on business and heard that this place was good.

Stopped in just before closing. In addition to it costing $25 for 3 people, my chicken sandwich was completely inedible. It was so overcooked, I literally could not chew it. My daughters hamburger from the kids meal was about the size of a White Castle burger and my wifes chicken strips were soaked in grease. When we confronted the staff,... More

I wasn't really too impressed with the burgers but I really liked their fries and thought their fries had a lot of flavor to it and the service was good, too bad the burgers couldn't hold up to the quality of their fries

An exterior cartoonish and carnival-like, Ron's has stood the test of time and economic ups and downs, because the product is excellent. Sadly, since the founder and owner passed away a while back, the burgers aren't quite like they used to be. Still great, but no longer fresh gound and hand-pattied. Where they excel now is with their broasted chicken.... More
