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

There is a drive-up window at this greasy spoon and the ice cream is fresh and delicious. There is always a line outside the walk up window and a line at the drive-thru and most of the seats inside are full, but it is worth the short wait. The order is served fast and it is a tasty. I would... More

Went there on the 14th and again on the 15th of October 2013. First time I ate there I had a hamburger. It was very dry and definitely frozen. Unfortunately, if you've ever been to the Cascade Locks there isn't much of a selection of eateries there. So, after a long day's hiking and site seeing I decided to try... More

I had the bacon cheeseburger and from the time it took to deliver the order I knew it was definitely cooked just for be. It was very juicy and well cooked. The bacon was crisp and appeared to also be freshly cooked. Fries were plentiful. ( shouldn't have ordered the "large". Chocolate shake was very thick. Several others got the... More

Can't beat their shakes, malts and burgers - great little drive in, limited inside seating. Good place to grab some food and head to one of the nearby parks.

I never go to the falls without going here for lunch. Awesome and huge ice cream cones. Today I took my new husband and his double bacon burger was too much for him to finish and this is a man who usually eats all his and half of mine. Good service even with a line. Also feels really good to... More

We were driving by & saw a huge lineup, so thought this must be the place to go. It was wonderful. Very big burgers & the hugest ice cream cones we have ever seen. They have a few different flavored soft serve that are very yummy. The people working are very, very casual & very pleasant. If you are passing... More
