Blast from the Past!

We came here because we needed to escape the traffic jam that was happening on Main Street in Taylor Falls and our bellies were grumbling for some good food. We found that satisfaction in the Drive In's delicious burgers, fries, and cold drinks! I re-discovered the famous Frisco Burger here. If... read more

This old fashion drive in is a great summer date spot with mini golfing next door, drive in or sit down outside and enjoy some good food and awesome root beer. This place try's to take you back in time with their waitresses and style. I recommend stopping in for a bite to eat.

We've loved this place for years and we were happy when they opened another one in Grantsburg,WI. We frequent this both places more than a dozen times a year. Where else can you go for home style root beer or any other flavors. Best Malts, great burgers and fries etc... This is the real deal and we love it. I... More

Although we live fairly close to the Drive In, we often make an evening of it and go as a family. Our kids love seeing the giant, turning mug of root beer that means the Drive In is open for business. The hamburgers are all made fresh and are excellent. The kids get a free mini golf coupon with their... More

Great root beet and a fun atmosphere. It also has a nice mini golf course. How often can you actually visit a real drive-in?

We went this last weekend to Taylor's Falls and went looking for a good place to get some grub. We ran into this place by chance and pulled into the parking lot. We got immediate service from a sweet waitress and put in our order right away. This place is just like an old time drive in complete with the... More

An old school drive in with ice cream, burgers and lots of other menu items. Fun for an afternoon diversion.

The Drive In appears to be an old A&W Root Beer drive in restaurant that has been converted to an old school restaurant with picnic tables serving burgers, hot dogs, malts and root beer. This restaurant is located on Bench Street about a half mile from Interstate State Park and the bridge over the St Croix River. You can’t miss... More
