Drove by this little place, and both times it had long lines. So, decided to stop. I was craving n iced coffee, and ice cream. Both were good, I ordered a small flurry, but got a medium, they forgot my order. My husband ordered a medium cone, oh my gosh, it was huge. Very good flavor to it though, butter... More

We had read about the ice cream in this small town of Cascade Locks and true to all the other reviews, the wait was long and the staff were not very good at their job But the novelty of the size of their ice cream cones and the flavor choices available outweigh their incompetence in customer service. I waited in... More

LOVED the Ice Cream... if you don't want a foot of ice cream... order the kid's cone (5" or so of ice cream)! Good stuff... Great Breakfast Burritos... Love the burgers and the onion rings... You can't visit Cascade Locks without treating yourself to East Wind!

They got a gold mine here. Right items, right prices, right location. Add good service and hungry guests and there you go!

Seen lots of people in line and walking away with what I thought was a large ice cream. Nope, they were small. Unless you like a LOT of ice cream and you think you can eat it before it melts, don't order anything but a small.

My husband and I have been stopping at East Wind Drive-Inn for over 30 years. Sorry to say that I will never be back. Neither will the three friends that came along with us. We were going to eat inside but the waitress was terrible. We had to order at the counter while she doodle on the order form. Having... More

We were a party of seven, including two young grandsons, and I was paying for this Mother's Day gathering half-way in the middle from all our homes. I had checked out the other eateries with their $8 burgers and found them to be better than some of the reviewers reported but we settled on the ol' reliable East Wind Drive-In.... More

They make great burgers at this little joint. Unfortunately they make so many and so quickly they will likely make a mistake. I have never had so many mistakes made with my burgers than at this little tiny drive thru place. Try the ice cream too. Be careful as a large is enormous!!

I love this place! Unfortunately, or fortunately, I only stop in about four times a year when I am traveling by. There is nothing pretentious about East. Wind. They are not trying to be a vintage hamburger place, THERE ARE A HAMBURGER PLACE. Keep your white gloves in the car and delve into a little piece of hamburger history. This... More
