Another great lunch at Boomer's. The mushroom swiss burger and blackberry shake are always top notch and ultra fresh!! Mouth watering before getting there.

Overpriced food, and just average at the best in taste I'd say.So it is a drive in, so what ? You are kinda paying for the "experince" of a 50s-60s style drive in and not good food.Go somewhere else...

Well we didn't actually leave. We rooted around, decided there was no banana, and asked. They asked if we wanted another one, and we said yes. Milkshakes felt very authentic as determined not only by good taste but also when the cheap straws collapsed early on. Didn't order any other food. Probably a fluke on the split but sure seemed...

The drive in is a dying breed in this area. Boomers keeps it alive and thriving. With very decent burgers for a reasonable price and hard ice cream shakes that make the "car hop" experience that much more entertaining and enjoyable.

Hands down the best burgers around. A combo includes an awesome burger, waffle fries, and a shake. All for less than $7. It is such good food. And you can drive in too, if you want.
