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!

I've been going to Boomers for as long as I can remember. My fave as a child were the kid's meals set in the old school chevy. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu but I always go for the bacon cheeseburger with a shake. Delicious!!

This is a really fun burger place, all sorts of burgers (also veggie/chicken/fish-burgers) and salads and waffle fries and such, but really great milkshakes. Everything is tasty. Vintage rock'n'roll soundtrack plays. Also a small inside area to sit that is pleasant.

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...
