Best Burgers in state

Clydes is a local favorite with I think 3 drive-ins around the UP. They are known for the “Big C” burger which is an incredibly huge and wonderfully tasty burger. Done inthe way old bar burgers were made back in the day, you can’t go wrong. For a small town drive-in a very diverse menu which has... read more

Best burgers, they're very large so I am pleased you can get a jr burger anyway you want it. Its still a nice size burger. I heard the one in the Sault is better yet, can't wait for spring to come to try it out.

Making a round trip road trip to Marquette from the lower pennisula. Loved it so much the first time we had to stop here a second time. The carhop experience was great but the best part was walking in and smelling all the food hanging in the air.

If you are looking for a good old fashioned drive in burger Clyde's in St Ignace has to be on your list. Frozen pre-made patties NO WAY!!! When you order the cook dips into the ground beef with a gloved hand at slaps it on the grill, nothing is measured, you want everything, on goes a handful of pickles, onions,... More

I was expecting something pure amazing and I got a greasy burger. It had flavor, but my bun was soggy. I have had better at many places, didn't live up to the hype.

I live 45 minutes from Clyde's and we come here 3 times a month!!! The Big C burger (3/4 lb) is to die for...figuratively speaking...so juicy and huge!!! Great deserts and milkshakes as well. Love the car hops as we always eat outside. This is a must stop destination if you are driving anywhere near St Ignace. Wish it were... More

I arrived late in the evening. The young lady took my order and while I was waiting I noticed the floor around their fryer was filthy with food product. Then the cook proceeded to throw out pickles, onions, and other toppings in a big black garbage can. Perhaps it was because they were about to be closed for the night,... More

We stopped in for the first time ever yesterday. We have passed by many, many times in the past 25 years. We took our food to go. When we went in the waitress completely ignored us for several minutes. We started to think that they didn't offer carry outs, and since the counter was full we couldn't sit down to... More
