One of the last independent drive-ins

This used to be an A&W, but is not locally and independently run. The menu is typical drive-in fare (burgers, fish and chips, shakes) with decent renditions of it all. The fun is in either eating in your car, or on their sunny deck with a great view of the main drag.

Yesterday my husband and I stopped in for dinner at the Fidalgo Drive-In Restaurant, and we are so happy we did! On the menu was Oven-Roasted turkey on deli honey wholewheat bread. They had prices for both a whole sandwich, and a half sandwich. After the half sandwich they had the word "recommended" underlined in green three times for emphasis.... More

BAD Food at expensive price. Very overpriced for what you get. Clams strips over-cooked. Tiny burgers with thin meat. For a great meal at a great price GO to the Bowling Alley on Commercial Ave. Seems odd but we'd lived here 15 years, and we only eat at the Bowling Alley, Anthony's, and the Greek place. Geri Deli good for... More

This used to be the local A&W. The chain is long-gone, but the restaurant remains. In town for a family reunion one of my aunts insisted we visit here for root-beer floats. Since it was lunch time many in the group ordered a full lunch. This is local diner eating--prepared to order, greasy and good. Several floats in sizes varying... More

I get that on a Saturday night the restaurant is busy. But HOLY MOSES!!!! I pressed the order button and 20 minutes later after no response I sent my husband inside. It's been 20 more minutes and still nothing. If I'd wanted slow service I would have gone to an ACTUAL restaurant, not a glorified BK.

Nothing is actually cooked here. Everything is processed and pre-made, then microwaved. Root beer floats and ice cream is okay.

This fast food place has the old-fashioned way of ordering. You drive up a parking spot, read the menu outside the driver's window, order through a speaker and its delivered to your car. Nice selection of burgers including seafood choices. Also great milkshakes with seasonal choices.

The onion rings are the real deal. Battered and fried and lots of them. Hamburgers are great and the fish and chips are good if you are really hungry. Food is prepared to order so be prepared to wait a bit.

Years ago this was an A&W, it had good food. Now it's not A&W, but it still has good food. Good burgers and fries, and good root beer floats. Service was fast and polite, we will continue to eat here. Good do some interior redecorating.

Simply good food, Take out quickly accomplished. Generous order of French fries. Tip of the day: Take those leftover fries home, chop them up for breakfast hash brown, add chopped Walla Walla onions, and braise. Ummm, good
