Best fries in town!

Love their fries and fry sauce and huckleberry shakes! Burgers have gone downhill over the years and patty is barely edible in my opinion. Stick with the chicken strip basket or cod basket. Would eat there way more often if they had better patties.

We walked across the street from the Flamingo Hotel for a late night snack and found a wonderful frozen treat "Huckleberry Shakes".

YUM! Wow this was the very first Huckleberry shake I ever had and I must say...it was AWESOME! At the bottom, there were whole berries, oh soooo good! I am usually a chocoholic, but after that first Huckleberry shake, chocolate beware!!!

Loved the huckleberry milkshakes. If you only go for this, then do it. They are made with fresh huckleberries, not just syrup!! A great surprise and we later found one in Bonners Ferry as well. Service is super fast. YUM YUM. Great local treat

I have eaten at Zip's on Sherman Avenue in Coeur d' Alene dozens of times, and although the food is just average it's inexpensive and the service fast and courteous. Today I was there for lunch , went through the drive-through as usual and noticed only one car in the parking lot.....that seemed strange, because it's usually pretty busy. I... More

I would say this drive in is just average, but the huckleberry shake saved the day, hence the better rating.

As we walked back from a boat trip around the lake we called in and heard so much about how nice Huckleberrys were so we shared a Huckleberry milk shake there which we can only say was very nice indeed,had we have stayed in the area any longer we would have been back for more.

This burger establishment is across the street from the Flamingo Motel. Our group of six just wanted to hang out and have a few beverages, not wanting to walk around to find a place to eat. Burger, fries and a shake hit the spot.
