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.

The shakes and malts are ok, sometimes, a bit weak on the favoring. A 1950s vibe for sure, you park and carhops come out and take your order carside.

Stopped here last week for a quick milkshake break. The service was excellent, and we would definitely return to try a hamburger and fries.

Fords has been a Great Falls icon since the 1960's, maybe before. Curb service to your car, great food and a little nostalgia to boot!
