Best burgers ever !!!!!

Just so people that don't know about this place ( is always full in the summer when open ) we have gone there and waited up to 45 mins total as it was so packed inside and out as well as an order line out the door just so we could have our great cheese burger and fries yummy !!!!!!!!!

Who cannot love a drive in with the best burgers in the UP, terrific car hops, and the only onion rings I love. I will caution though, the Big C is ginormous. Even my strapping son couldn't finish it . It is more like a PIE. I stop here every time I'm in the UP, now only once per year.... More

Couldn't believe it. Ordered big C with cheese, sloppy joe with cheese and extra cooked mot stick. Car hop was upset because I said we wanted our motz sticks cooked extra so the cheese was hot. That set her off. When she went in she kept pointing to our vehicle. We got our order to go so we could take... More

Great little drive in place right off the freeway after the bridge into the UP. Very small inside with just counter space or you can eat in your car with the drive in service. Good price to quantity ratio with the best burgers. Great pit stop when traveling through the UP.

We'd heard a lot about this little place (and it is little, only seating for a dozen or so inside, some picnic tables outside, but it is a drive-in, after all), and we were so glad we stopped in. They have a huge menu, and everything we tried was delicious (burgers, sloppy joe, fries, onion rings). If you sit inside,... More

This old fashioned drive in restaurant is just like it was many years ago. A car hop takes your order. The food was delicious and the kids meals come in boxes in the shape of old 50-60's cars. The kids loved the boxes so much they brought them home from vacation. The shakes are DELICIOUS (I had strawberry). Head ups-cash... More

Seen this place on youtube and had to check it out. The burgers were awesome i am so glad we ordered just the regular size burger because it was more than enough. The bacon cheeseburger deluxe was the best burger I've had . Nice friendly service , very busy but well worth the wait and the prices aren't bad either.

Holy crap, a huge burger. Very very good flavor but huge! I didn't understand when I ordered it how big it was. I love hamburgers and can be fussy about them. The service was ok, busy and only one waitress at the drive in. She was literally running from vehicle to vehicle. Would recommend and go back.

Can't go wrong with the 1/4 lb burger, mushroom poppers and a chocolate malt. Absolutely loved it. Worth a visit!
