I eat here once a month or so. The Big Hungry Burger is always good and plenty big. Onion rings are excellent, tater tots always good too.

We've been back a few times now and every time we go, we try something different. This place doesn't disappoint, but only if you're not worried about your cholesterol or fatty food intake! Their burgers are awesome! No, they're not fat-free, these things are made to have flavor! The Andy burger is fantastic! That slice of ham in there just... More

I feel I said enough here in my title. You don't find drive up, face-to-face service anywhere. Plus it is, or at least seems, very local which I like giving into the local community. We were shocked. I give 5 stars not just for food which was good enough for a hungry family, but friendly smiley, quick service.

Onion rings were our favorite so far of what we've tried!! Can't wait to try something new. Would get 5 stars but the girl who helped us seemed to hate her job and wasn't too friendly.

We come here whenever we visit family. The burgers are juicy and delicious, the onion rings are amazing, and the prices are reasonable. We love this little gem of a place!

I went solo and got a Bronco Billy burger, yes for those of you that don't know, Clint Eastwood filmed Bronco Billy here in Meridian and the surrounding area and used this place for a scene. The burger was very good, bacon crisp, fresh ingredients, better than any fast food burger around here. The onion rings were awesome, greasy and... More

One had a taco burger, one had a hamburger, one had a cheese burger and one had a grilled cheese. We split an order of tater tots. We... More

I'm impressed that this little drive in has made it into the 21st century...well, maybe surprised is a better term. I stopped there for a late lunch last week and had a carhop show up at my window after sitting for a couple minutes. She wasn't exactly friendly, but took my order. I got a grilled cheese, fries and a... More
