They use fresh meat, not frozen. Fast food at its best, and don't forget about the ice cream. Get a pint to go. At night, the line is out the door.

Great ice cream and a huge selection of flavors and toppings, most of them home made. Its very affordable, which is rare in montauk nowadays. Big John burguer yummmm. The owner and employees are very nice. We visit this place on a weekly basis.

Fast food service - with-out the fast food taste. Very good burgers, fries & sandwiches. Frozen yogurt was excellent too. Try the Orchard cherry flavor, so true to taste - does not taste overly sweet or fake.

At John's drive in. Had a terrible experience there this past week. We ordered ice cream and payed the bill.

Small ice cream shop that also offers burgers and fries. Be sure to bring cash because its all they accept. We enjoyed the banana fudge and black cherry ice cream but my favorite was the soft serve cone dipped in chocolate. Classic and delicious!

Loved the dinginess of the place, though the staff would not look at us when we ordered. The ice cream was delicious- great flavors, super creamy. Yes!

Always stop there for a vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles when I'm in Montauk and it never disappoints. I hope they never change the atmosphere. Very 50's/60's and no matter how long the line is they keep it moving and always have a friendly smile.
