Just like the drive-ins in the "old" days. The burgers are pretty good. You can tell they are fresh, hand made. The ice cream is pretty good, too. The kid's meal burger is not so great - its not a normal bun - I don't know what that was. The service is super-great. They really take care of... read more

Great burgers. Friendly service. Very retro. They actually hook the food tray on your window! You will be glad you stopped. I think you get tokens for the mini golf if you go during the summer. The mini golf course is RIGHT behind the restaurant.

We were here the last weekend they were open for the fall. Maybe that is why it was so fun and so delicious! The crisp air, beautiful foliage, lots of litte kids laughing. But really we had the homemade root beer - oh, so good! and the hamburgers were really good. Not crazy about the sweet potato fries, but everything... More

Today, my husband dined at the popular restaurant in Taylors Falls, MN - The Drive In. Excellent food, excellent service - a great experience!! My husband had a hamburger with the works; I had the Fish and Chips basket. We also enjoyed mugs of their homemade Root Beer. Everything tasted very fresh and was delivered piping hot to our car...

This was our second visit to the Drive In, and we enjoyed both meals. Really fun 50's theme with option to eat in car or at tables on patio. The batterfried fish and onion rings had great batter and were nicely crunchy. Make sure to plan enough time for a round of mini golf as well.

This was a fun stop to grab lunch. Staff was very good and friendly! Great atmosphere and the burgers and malt were good. They have mini-golf also behind the restaurant so a great place if you have kids with you.

Cheescurds, rootbeer floats, and the best friscoburger brought to you by a cheerful waitress. The only thing missing is roller skates. After lunch we played a round of mini golf behind the restaurant. Fun break in the day.

This little place will take you back in time to the '50's. The food is delicious authentic Drive-In food. Poodle skirts and window trays make the experience complete.

Everything was so yummy, including the deep fried green beans! Great menu with lots of fun choices. You can order their delicious home made root beer in a frosty mug, too!

Owners take pride in this place. Historical signage in minigolf building and fresh paint being applied to drive in building points to that. Food is okay. Root beer is Great! And served in frosty mugs, too (skip the paper cup!!)
