The 50's Drive-In Restaurant is alive and well at Johnny Ray's

Johnny Ray's Drive-In, on the north side of Highway 50 between the 291 South exit and the 3rd Street exit in Lee's Summit, MO, is your basic 1950s drive-in. Basic fare consists of burgers, fries, onion rings, and milk shakes. All very good, and hasn't changed much in the last 50 years. They still... read more

This is a Lee's Summit staple. Awesome burgers and bowling ally type of food. Awesome shakes, and malts. The wait staff are super friendly to kids, which is a bonus.

Health food it ain't. The menu is simple: burgers, fries and the like. Both the burgers and the fries were served quickly and were delicious, a guilty pleasure. Service was quick and friendly and the prices reasonable. Just the kind of local place we like to visit when traveling. You'll like it, too!

We take our two young grandchildren here when they request it. The burgers are good. The fries and tater tots are below par. Our 7 and 9 year olds split a Shrimp dinner and an order of fries. This costs right around $38 after we tip our server. For the quality this is WAY OVERPRICED. The decor and mood are... More

This is an awesome local place. They have the best burgers (really thin but big patties) They also have onion rings, tenderloins, hotdogs, mozzarella sticks and more...so much to choose from. Their shakes are also really yummy. Totally recommend as it is a change from your typical fast food burger place.

Great cheap burgers. I always get the daily special. Good fries. They have cheescake factory cheesecake for dessert. Thru the summer they have a car show the 3rd Saturday of the month

A good local dive. The old fashioned drive in only has a drive thru. Close to my house and better than the other fast food options, I go here occasionally. I like the burgers and onion rings.
