My husband ordered a burger which was missing half the beef patty and the bacon was completely raw. As for my blt the bread was not toasted bacon was raw and they decided to leave a hair in it. After spitting it out I returned it to them and they thought it was funny. This place should be shut down.

50% off Plate Lunches, regular and mini? We just got two meals for $8. Talk about cheap eats that hit the spot after a day of beach time and errands. I got the yummy shrimp plate. They very busy due t the promo, so were out of Mahi and a few other items.

We only went to Blane's for breakfasts -- great food -- mega inexpensive! It's just a fun place to go to and it beats the heck out of your typical "fast food" restaurant. I don't even consider it FF -- it's just a great little place!

The fried korean chicken drummettes were so delicious. Served with macaroni salad and 2 scoops of white rice. They also have it boneless which is delicious also. This was the best chicken drummettes I ever had. It was perfectly done and not overcooked like most places tend to over fry it dry. I wish we had a Blane's in California.... More

The locals know where to go and they dine at Blane's Drive Inn. It is a fast food restaurant with loads of choices. Meals are inexpensive. You can see it from the main road but It is a little difficult to drive to it. Don't give up, it is worth it!

We eat here while our cars get inspected at nearby Lex Brodies. Good local fare, filling, and as the locals say, "Cheap Eats."

Good prices for food, slushy floats are yummy! Gravy burgers could have more gravy. Service was pretty fast, especially if you call in first.

One of the best chocolate shakes I have ever had. Thick, rich and creamy, so thick its hard to suck through the straw. The flavor is the best I have taste.

Blane's is a restaurant with the local taste in mind. The hamburger meat feel like it is in layers when you eat it, and is pretty tasteless. Their roast pork and fried shrimp are several of their better dishes. There are many choices to choose from, however if you're not acquainted with Hawaiian fare, you probably would be asking about...
