Drive in restaurant on the river

Old fashioned drive in restaurant on the outskirts of Bryson City. We had the chicken finger platter, cheeseburger and fries, and the cherry lemon mountain dew. Service was fast and friendly, prices were very reasonable. Food was as expected. View of the river behind the restaurant was pleasant and... read more

This is an old fashioned drive in. You order from your car and a car hop brings it to you. That was great and the server was very friendly. We got our order to go. When we got home, we were very disappointed! The burger and fries were ok but the fried chicken plate was cooked (or should I say... More

I had some guy tell me he drove over a 100 miles to eat one of their hamburgers. My wife and I had one each. They are just like my mom used to make. Unfortunately my mom made the worst hamburgers. Dry, over-cooked, stale bun, and flavorless. The drive in, eat in your car thing is fun, but, I don't... More

Right on the river, so it's a nice view while you eat or wait for your food. Friendly, fast service. Cheap food. It's greasy and delicious. The chicken fingers were the best I've ever had. Good sweet tea. Perfect on a rainy day when you don't wanna walk around. Just a short drive from downtown. Really fun place. Cash only!

This food is pretty good, pretty fast, and no frills. It is right on the river, so it would be cool to take advantage of that, but they do not. If you want just plain non-franchised good food, this is it!

I love going to Na-Bers. I used to work there as a teenager, and can tell you from experience the food is wonderful. They've been doing it the way they've always done it -- the best. It is a picturesque drive-in that was started in the 1930's-40's, the original location burned down in the 60's and was moved to where... More

Amazing hamburgers and shakes! Also carry bbq, chicken, fries, other desserts, etc. Only drawback is cash only. There is an ATM inside.

This is a old timey Drive-in restaurant right be side the river. Food was not to bad for a fast food place, it came quick and not at a bad price. The best part was the view of the river full of ducks from our car. Will be going back

The service was friendly. Probably the cheapest food I have seen anywhere. Everything was OK, nothing spectacular, but nothing awful. Definitely a local place to eat.

The best place in town to get a burger and killer onion rings! Fast service, vintage atmosphere with the drive in. Good deal for the money, you will not be hungry afterwards.
