I live in Bellingham and this is one of our favorite places to eat. There is old fashioned car hop service, or you can go in to eat. It gets super busy on weekends and evenings so I recommend calling ahead to order. My kids and I are vegetarian so we always get the gardenburgers. We also LOVE the chocolate... More

We were looking for something fast and cheap on our recent visit to Bellingham. I'd seen reviews for the place, and desk clerk at the hotel said Boomers was good, so off we went. It's an old-fashioned drive-in, with car hops and everything. We wanted to eat inside, and although the room was cold from the door opening with all... More

The burgers are great here. I always have a chicken burger and make myself choose between a hand-made shake (root beer is my fave) or waffle fries. Such a dilemma! It works best if I get a shake and my dinner partner has some fries I can sample ;)

Just like an old-fashioned drive-in, you can order from your car or go into the restaurant. Delicious big burgers with all the works, real ice cream shakes, and delicous waffle fries. It is really a treat to to here. Don't expect to find a seat inside if there is something going on at WWU.

Callie suggested Boomers and boy was she right. It was very good. Also we went to the Thai restaurant right next door and it was good also. Good dining experiences.

Boomer's is our favorite burger spot in Bellingham. We usually call ahead and get our orders to go but the drive-in and cozy indoor seating are both great as well. I usually get the Baby Boom, which is a little smaller than tasty Boomer Burger - love the special sauce. Their waffle fries are great - nice and crispy; I... More

Thank you for sharing your experiences with others. We are always working hard to make sure people walk out at least a little happier than when they arrived. Calling ahead is a great strategy and can be done even when using the drive-in car hop service. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon. More

Don't miss Boomers if you want the real thing, an old fashioned burger & milkshake. You can choose between the Drive-in service, or the cafe. They have the most tasty rootbeer shakes. YEAH! So good! Chocolate malt....yum-mmy! Waffle fries that you can't stop eating! Too darn delicious, and really good for the diet. Okay, so make it a treat worth... More

It is dangerous to live so close to Boomers because their burgers are so good and temptingly easy to order out. A sustainable burger joint!
