This is a wonderful old school drive-in burger and hot dog joint; We just love the car service… no drive through here! They actually take your order and deliver your food with a personal touch. They even checked back several times to make sure everything is fine. The chili dogs were wonderful and the fries were just as you remember... More

Drove past this joint on my way out if town and flipped a U-ey and headed back. It's an old school drive-in burger joint, with the only way to get service being to park in a spot outside the tiny building and wait for someone to come and take your order. There is no drive through, and no inside sit-down... More

When I am in the area, I always go by for a chili dog and fries. This is the best kept secret of the area, a bona fide drive-in, the great kind we had before McDonald's swept the land. Too bad Dude's was not franchised, but maybe that would have eroded its charm. Drive up and almost immediately a curb... More

I have been eating at dudes since I was a child, I have moved to Florida and every time I am in town I have to go by, and eat at Dudes. The folks there are friendly and the food is excellent!

This drive in has been around for a long time, and the staff knows a lot of the regulars who come her for great burgers, dogs, and fries. Great Americana.

This place is the real thing! The food is great and just what you would expect: hotdogs, hamburgers, fries, onion rings. Service is friendly and food arrives fast. I have been going here since I was a child, and it is still a treat to stop by Dude's!

Dude's takes you back to the days when the girl comes to your car, takes your order and brings a sack of food to you. You park in the parking lot, the menu is on a big sign on the building. Beware, the prices are not posted. You can ask the girl the price if you want to know the... More
