Best ice cream cones in Butte

This little Ma and Pa drive-in is definitely old school. It is a fun place to enjoy an ice cream-especially on cone day-Wednesday. Try the sprinkles on your cone.

The Bonanza Freeze has been around since the 1950's and for a quick lunch or a yummy treat it can't be beat. The onion rings are delicious! It is a repeat "go to" for our family.

You can get delivery to your home or business. You can also drive up and place your order through the window. Or you can sit outside when the weather is nice and eat. I usually drive up and go to the window and order and then sit in my car until the food is ready. This is not a sit... More

Great burgers and shakes. This place is worth the stop. I love their corn dogs! It feels like a delicious blast from the past.

We were in town with my Dad and he showed us this drive In that he used to go to as a kid. We decided to give it a try. First thing we noticed was how many items they had and the variety of choices from chicken to fish. The next thing we saw were the prices. It looked like... More

On road trips I like to avoid chains and visit local restaurants. We tried to go to Matt's for lunch but they were closed on Sunday. Then we tried Gamers Cafe but the street was closed due to Evel Kenevil Days and hubby wasn't interested in parking and walking to see if they were open. So we tried Bonanza. It... More

Looking for a quick little local joint on vacation. Found this one and was very surprised on how good it was. Great food great price great shakes. Outside seating only or drive thru. Also bathroom is a porta John. I suggest not using the bathroom. But other then that minor issue it's a great place.
