The restaurant is very clean, good service and friendly staff. Prices are very good! I will return when I' m in the area, I'm from Chattanooga about 30 minutes... read more

Best Bacon in town we usually go for the gravy and biscuits but the service and foods seems to be slacking from the past. so they might want to get a handle on these issues. maybe the server just had a wild friday night. Talked to someone who eat hamburger steaks last night and they said they were really good.... More

I have ordered the Lottaburger basket twice and really enjoyed it. The burger is big and fresh (cheese is extra), fries are crinkle cut and crispy and the cole slaw is very good too. The service is prompt, decor truly is diner-style and the prices are reasonable. I definitely recommend the Rebel and will return.

When we first moved to Cleveland in 1978 we met Emory and Ruby Bryant, owners of the Rebel drive-in. We went to church with them and became good friends. Emory told me on more than one occasion that he was not going to have the restaurant open on Sundays even though other restaurant owners told him he couldn't 'make it'... More
