Being from Pennington, I've been going to the Patio Drive In my entire life and my family goes multiple times whenever we go home for a visit. Seriously the best shakes ever. The cheeseburgers are to die for. Old fashioned drive in style, not fancy, just good food!

Traveling to visit family in the area and decided to stop in. Got chocolate shakes! Yummy on a hot day! The menu is on the walls of the building, but there are no prices.

I have eaten at the Patio since the 50's. I have always found the food to be fresh and tast good. I always get good service. The Patio is a family owned Drive in restaurant.

We got two cheeseburgers, two orders of potato wedges and two drinks and with a $2 tip, it was almost $25. Too high for food that you have to eat in your car. The burgers were not good at all. They fell apart because the buns were so soggy and the meat tasted old. I will never eat there again.

I remember my Dad, Earl Seiber telling me about crusing the Patio in the 50's and 60's. My older brother Terry cruised the Patio, I, also cruised the Patio in my heydays. Not only is it part of Pennington Gap history it has become a family rite. My Aunt used to take us on Sundays to get fried chicken and... More

The Patio is a great place to eat. For Pennington Gap, it is one of the best. You pull up to the Patio, and a waitress will come and take your order. They have the menus conveniently located on the side of the building. My favorite is the Patio burger, if you go you have to try it. The place... More

I always have to make a special trip to the Patio whenever I'm home visiting family. My favorites include the cheeseburger & fries, and the fried chicken. That grill must be so old and seasoned, it makes hamburgers like no other. You can also get an authentic cherry-syrup-and-your-favorite soda. I'm not a Sprite drinker, but a Cherry Sprite from the...
