Great place to stop for some of the best food in Christiansburg. You sit in your vehicle and the employees come and take your order and deliver your food to you. Dude burger with cheese is an excellent choice if you are really hungry. Have never received anything there that wasn't prepared correctly.

If you want an old fashioned drive in like the 50's then you will want to visit Dude's. This place has been an institution for decades in Christiansburg. I like the Dude burger and their milk shakes, but just about everything is worth trying at least once - and maybe twice. This is not a heatlh food store so stay... More

Stopped at Dude's since it was closer on my route off 81, but wish I went the extra mile to Sonic. Burger patties were as thin as church wafers, almost as small and almost taste like nothing. Added bacon, but it was so cruchy, not crispy, and tasted burnt. No seasoning on the fries either, just a shame. $9 plus... More

We pulled off I-81 in search of something to fuel us for the rest of our trip home. Enter Dude's Drive-In. Just a bit off the interstate is a little slice of Americanized Heaven where they greet you warmly with, "Sweetie and Sugar." Located in Christiansburg, Virginia is Dude's, a return to the King of Service car hop burger joint.... More

Stopped in here due to positive reviews on Trip Advisor seeking solid food and a good price. And that is exactly what we got. One Chili Slaw Dog, One Grilled Cheese (comes with lettuce tomato, unique and strangely good), one order of great onion rings, a chocolate shake and a diet pepsi. Total tab came to under $10. Gourmet food?... More

This was a neat place to stop by. I thought the name and experience were interesting. The food was decent and the service was good. The experience of ordering and having the food brought to your car was fun.

I have been eating at Dude's Drive In since I was a child. It is a landmark in Christiansburg. All of the natives know where Dude's is. The staff is friendly and the food is consistent. My favorites include: french fries, Dude Burger, egg and cheese sandwich, and Cherry Coke. No matter what you pick I think you will be... More

The cheeseburgers are delicious, they have a very classic menu with great service. What i don't like it, its that i didn't have enough room for two of those great cheeseburgers in my belly haha.

I'm kind of a hot dogs snob but Dude's cut's the mustard if you know what I mean. Didn't enjoy the burger but the hot dogs are #1 in my book.
