If you're from Great Falls you haft to eat at Fords basic burgers fries and lots more, don't forget to have a shake. Not fine dinning, better than McDonalds by far.

I heard such positives from local's about this 50's style Drive-In with great burgers, shakes and carhops! We had driven past earlier, and the way back decided to try a little "old time drive in". Well, it was quite busy at 2:00pm and took this as a good sign! Pulled in, and waited for awhile, and noticed only 1 young... More

Told it was the best burger we would ever eat, we couldn't wait to try it. Going in we had realistic expectations it would be slow because of the help wanted sign and the lot was full at 2:30 in the afternoon on a Saturday, also the Car Hop waitress told us it would be a while...so that was ok,...

A basic Thursday night in July will cause me to never come back. Around 8-9 cars when I pulled in at 5:50 PM. Then another 3 or 4 pulled in. They were waited on before me. With a 'help wanted' sign in the window, it was obvious that the 1 waitress and the 1 cook, try though they did, were... More

A blast from the past Fords has true car hops. They are quick, friendly, and their shakes and burgers are amazing. Their dogs are very good, my son who is very picky loved them. Gets very busy at lunch between 11-130 so time your visit right and you won't be disappointed. You can also call ahead and have it ready... More

Go here for a delectable hamburger using local beef and creamy milkshakes! This is the home of the "Green River." You can get it in soda or a milkshake! Don't pass up the perfectly made tater tots!

We always try to search out the places that make old style milkshakes and hamburgers. We love these drive-ins from the past. At Fords you drive in, wait in your car, they come and take your order. Just like when I was a kid. We visited last while attending a car show in Great Falls so I could pull up... More

As kid I can remeber going to A&W and placing our order and having a server bring our meal out and hang it our tray on the window. Sonic takes the order over the intercom and brings your order in a bag. Well here at Fords they have real car hps who run to your car and take your order.... More

I ordered a burger, chicken and a hot dog to get a variety of items off the menu. The hot dog looked hand breaded but it was hard to tell with the burnt breaking. My 4 year old had to take off the outside just to eat it. My chicken was over battered. It maybe got 6 bites of chicken... More
