Sometimes when you're passing through a town, you take a chance on a place to eat, and sometimes it's a happy encounter and sometimes not so much. We stopped here for a late lunch, and while I can't comment on any other menu items, the burgers we had were just about perfect. The buns held up, the beef wasn't too... More

The town of Spruce Pine is home to a nostalgic drive-in offering delicious, fresh, made-daily burgers and other tasty menu items including their original recipes for homemade chili and slaw. Service is fast, and the owners, as well as their staff, are friendly and work to prepare your order to your liking in this small-town setting. My favorite is the... More

I adore this place! I go out of my way to stop in anytime I'm in the area, and it has become a family favorite. The atmosphere is small town quaint, and we've never ordered anything that wasn't delicious. This is comfort food at its best!

I LOVE City Drive In! The service is great. You can't find service like that now days. They always greet me with a smile. I have tried almost everything on the menu and it has always been wonderful. Burgers, hotdogs, bbq, fish, milkshakes, breakfast.... just to name a few. The prices are also great. If you are looking for a... More

Not only are the peanut butter milkshakes to die for, but the food is just as delicious. I could live off their cheeseburgers, fries, and peanut butter milkshakes. Having grown up in rural Eastern North Carolina, I've been to my share of drive-ins and I know what to expect, and this one is one of the best. The customer service... More
