Hit the spot!

Driving home to Phoenix from a hike at Lake Watson. Wanted a burger and found this spot on Trip Advisor. Enjoyed our burgers and the cook was super friendly. Amazing value for the money. Tater tots were yummy and more than we could eat!

I noticed this place had great reviews so I went. What a signature burger - tied with the best I have ever had and welllllllllll worth the money. You get a Lot of fries that are long and thick. The milkshake was runny but I will come back for sure

This is your classic burger drive-in. It's very nostalgic of the 50s, sitting on stool at the counter and watching your food made in front of you. The servings are huge, especially the fries, which are amazing and nicely seasoned. I was very impressed watching the cook cleaning in between orders...he was very thorough, which I think is important.

A big plus to this little diner is that you can see the grill and watch your food being prepared fresh right in front of you! Tasty burgers and fries as well as the flavored sodas. I cannot eat food like this all the time but we usually indulge at least once whenever we visit Wickenburg!

Screamers Drive In is a friendly meeting spot where you can get breakfast, lunch, great hot dogs and burgers, frosties, coffee, etc. Locals go there in numbers! They regularly have antique car showings there too. Most of the customers sit outside at picnic tables and chat for hours while enjoying the sun and the friendly service of Screamers Drive In,...

Dropped in to Screamers during the rodeo days in wickenburg. First, not a drive in second, great burger and fries. Cooked slow right in front of you so have patients its not sonic. The cashier is the father of the owner and really lacks friendlyness but check it out, its fair priced.

I stopped in here on a weekday afternoon.It is a small somewhat tired looking 50-ish era style cafe with shaded areas for parking and a few outside tables. This is the only similarity that I could see to a classic 'Drive-In', which would have communication between the car stalls and the interior, a server bringing your order out on a... More

Title says it all. Portions are generous, price is right, and taste is YUMMMMY PLUS… It's a MUST if you are in the area, and worth the drive even if you are not… ;)

Recently while on a long RV trip we passed through Wickenburg and decided to try Screamers (after reading many reviews). The diner is nostalgic, lots of pictures of old cars and such, but that's not why we were there. We both ordered the Western Burger and watched (in horror) as the gal at the grill repeatedly pressed the burger, flipped,... More
