This has been in my life since i was 5 years old! If you're in the mood to take a nice ride to get some burgers and milkshakes then this is the spot! They have a cruise night on Wednesdays for bikes and cars, and offer a GREAT view of Lake Zoar! The onion rings are out of this world,... More

I live fairly close by and we never stopped by as it looks like a hole in the wall. Well looks are deceiving! We stopped for a quick bite while on an afternoon ride. Ordered a couple burgers and fries. The burgers were on some tasty buns and the fries were crisp and not oily. Though a little over salted... More

I am only giving this three stars because its, well, not dining at its finest, but it is a must stop if you are driving by. Its adorable. I was not hungry this trip or would have dived into a clam roll. But an iced tea hit the spot while I took in a view of the lake (through the... More

We have driven by Lake Zoar drive in for decades. Always wanted to stop in and try, but never did. Please don't make the same mistake! My husband and I went in for dinner this evening, finally. We both ordered the Best Dam Burger. Mine a single, his a double. The name is appropriate. What a fantastic burger. Burger, lettuce,... More

Great place to stop and have really good tasting burgers. Beautiful view to the lake. I wish the service is faster, but it's ok when you want fresh orders.

I have been eating Zoar Burgers for over 30 years and they get better and better! It is so great to have a place to come back to with such great memories and good food! The service is with a smile and they support the people locally.

Over the years, I have driven by the Lake Zoar Drive-In on my commutes to work. I finally decided to stop by for a quick bite on the way home. It is in a small building by the beach for Lake Zoar, so I am sure they get plenty of summer and weekend business. As you walk in, there is... More

We were used to getting a lot more fries with our hotdogs at this place. Where's Mike? Maybe he took Labor Day off. There are two picnic tables outside... More

It's beyond me how this place could get any kind of decent rating, much less "best burger". I rodered the cheeseburger platter and paid extra for onion rings. The burger was a wafer-thin slice of overcooked and tastless meat with a bit of melted cheese. That's it - no lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, nothing at all. I got 4 onion... More
