Stop In For a Strawberry Icee Float

Nothing like Blane's Strawberry Icee Float on a hot afternoon! They heap in the vanilla ice cream and fill to nearly over flowing with Icee (Strawberry or Coke) and top with whipped cream if you want. It is heavenly! I also like their fried rice breakfast bento, and just about anything else they... read more

I always get the fish plate. Ahi or Mahi, I can never keep it straight. Any it is always good. I would like a lot more tartar sauce, maybe I could ask for extra next time. Service is always quick and efficient, and always locals eating there.

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.

Great local food, lots of varieties, easy to access. Their Korean Chickens are the BEST on the island!
