“Historic and fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you want curb service from your car, this is it! This is a 50's style burger place that has been in business for 60 years. The burgers, Onion Rings and Shakes are great. I always smile when I go there.

“Best Drive-In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Home made fast food. Nostagic atmosphere of a drive in and order from your car. Best burgers and hot dogs around.Have always had good food and good service for a reasonable price

“This is the real deal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

You don't wanna miss this. I've been going here since I was 3 years old. I still try to go when I get to Staunton and have time. This is an original... not a mockup like Sonic. This place is the same as the 50's... except prices are higher! Not many originals still around.

They have regular cruise-ins during the summer. Often, there are classic cars just stopping in. The food is home cooked, real deal. It's fun to see the pics and the old menus. I highly recommend the chocolate malt and french fries. mmmmmm.... If you like nostalgia, this is the place you wanna go.

“Old fashioned delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

A 50's style restaurant. They have drive up speakers so you can park and eat in the car. Or dine inside by lifting the phone at your table and ordering. Kids meals come in a cardboard car.

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Shakes, Burgers, Chicken sandwiches or baskets, and fries are all AMAZING! The o-rings are o.k. and don't bother with the healthy stuff they put on the menu. Veggie wrap was bland. Orders take a LONG time to come out but it has always been worth the wait for me!
