The best!

I love Karins Kustard! Excellent burger and such a fun, old-timey feel with the window to order and the outdoor picnic tables. Wonderful for a fall or spring day! Everything is great!

Forget the burger chains - go here. Walk up to the small service window and make your choice. Then take an outdoor seat. Your food is brought to the table. The burger is old school. I loved it. The seating is alongside a raised railway line, and one of those crazy long freight trains passed as we ate - the... More

Bring the kids, grandkids and anyone who loves a frozen treat! Karin's is awesome! If it's really hot out, just be prepared to eat in your car (messy). They do have covered picnic tables! :)

As others stated, outside seating or take out only so watch the weather. Even on a rainy, dreary day, we will still go and sit under the canopy in our jackets. They have rope lights run all over and for plastic picnic tables, it is kinda romantic in a drive-in theater sort of way. We always see a train go... More

It's hard to wrong with ice cream or custard. Burger and fries are fairly good, but their chili and grilled cheese combo is to live for. Outside eating only so watch the weather.

I have visited a few times and I will go back. Some reviews state Sonic burgers are as good or better. Matter of taste. They come with a sear and you can get what you want on them. Love the Mushrooms and Jalapeño spuds. Highly recommend!

We love Karin's - nice people, great food, reasonable prices and their Kustard is a favorite. Standouts for me are the chili, the fried mushrooms and the lemon kustard. So good!

I've only had the burgers and fries and I was told they have the best hamburgers...compared to what?! The burger tasted like a hockey puck, very small, the fries were unremarkable. Hardee's is a thousand times better. Go for the custard, don't stay for the burgers!
