Old School, Drive-In Burger Joint

I love this place for it's juicy burgers, shakes and charm. During the summer you can find classic car clubs meeting up here for dinner and a show. When they're there you feel transported back to the 1950s, This place is what Sonic tries to emulate. You can order while parked, from the comfort of... read more

I stopped by on my way to pyramid lake on a rainy day. I grabbed a burger, shake and frys. Their shake menu is huge. I got the rasberry white chocolate. Very good. And the burger was nice to eat as well. The drive in part - the speakers were broken, and it was a general hole in the wall... More

Locals love scoopers and I can see why! Great shakes with a multitude of flavors to choose! No better way to spend a 90 degree day:)

Been going here for years. Great place to get an old fashion burger and fries. Always good. Need a bigger inside area for customers. Other then that the food is great.

I love going here because it reminds me of going to the drive-ins with my family when I was a kid. The food is about what you would expect from a drive-in. The only problem I have with the place is the broken speakers. There may have been only one, but of course we found it and either had to... More

I haven't been here in a while, but it used to be one of my favorites. Now that I live in the area again, I will be coming back!

Wife and I love Scoopers old fashion drive-in burgers, frys, tacos, and the hundred choices of different flavored milk shakes, malts and freezes. It always takes us back to the fifty's when we were young. There is no hint of big chain taste here. Truely made to order. It's the last of an era.

Both drive-in and sit-down dining for generous, tasty burger, real fries, and honest ice cream milk shakes.

Great food, super milkshakes and good ice cream too. Once was a drive in diner but now just walk up service but excellent place to eat. Nice folks, lots of 50s pictures for us older folks.
