Their burgers are wonderful - a sweet, unique taste - great with their fried onions. Veggie burger is tasty. Fries are ok. You don't get an itemized receipt. It pays to ask for one and check to be sure it is correct.

I grew up coming here as a kid and continue to go back every time I visit my parents/hometown. It's an old school restaurant where they take your order at the car and then bring it to you. Depending on the weather, the tray either attaches to your car outside, on the window, or inside. Best burgers you will ever... More

Great burgers, the best service. Old fashioned drive-in experience! Their secret recipe cooking process produces unforgettable burgers - particularly like the Galleyboy.

I like to go to Swenson's Drive In when I have a chance. I like the double cheeseburgers, onion rings, and a shake and my friend always gets a Galley sandwich. I like eating in my car....especially when it is not moving. The servers are polite and helpful and the bring the food fairly quickly too. It reminds me of... More

Its the usual sweet hamburger taste, and the usual cherry cokes and fries and mushrooms . Nothing new here, all of them alike. We don't go here much anymore, since we can find newer foods in Kent, and El Campensino next door. Swenson's is getting kinda old. Same ol, same ol.

I have been a loyal Swenson's customer for nearly 30 years. The Galley Boy is by far the best burger I've tried anywhere. Although I no longer live in the state, I make it a point to stop at least once during trips back home.

Very few fast dining establishments offer good vegetarian options. Swenson's has an amazing garden burger. The onion rings are pretty yummy too.

I could get addicted to their Galley Boy hamburger.....luckily I live a 5 hour drive away from the closest Swenson's or my waist-line would be about 7 inches greater than it currently stands.

Swenson's provide a great burger. Not my favorite recipe, however is a local favorite. The rest of the menu is to die for. Service cannot be better, if you want to eat in your car. Don't stop often, but never disappointed when I do.
