“Yummy burgers and waffle fries close to I-5. Don't forget a Shake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Combo comes with burger (thin patty) excellent "special sauce" has a garlicky flavor. Waffle fries are seasoned very well and hard ice cream shake is excellent. It's ok to ask for a flavor not on the menu, they may have it. (Raspberry!!)! As for the atmosphere the reason for the three is at no fault of the establishment but the drug dealer/user combing the parking lot and the prostitute hanging around left a little to be desired. Overall as a place to stop while passing through I would recommend for an inexpensive and tasty treat. Expect to wait a little longer than for a typical fast food joint, it's worth it though.

“Boomers drive in, can't go wrong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

This place is so good! Everything on their menu is delicious and you can't beat driving up in your car and being served 1950's style drive in. Their waffle fries are so good as well as their burgers. If in bham and craving a good burger & fries with some 1950's atmosphere head here

“Waffle fries and shake are good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I have high burger expectations. Burger was just average but the waffle fries and shake were pretty good. Given the lack of true burger joints in Bellingham, this is a definite must-go. It satisfied the craving!

“Good bang for buck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Great shake and fries. Barbecue burger was solid as well. It was hard to find a place to sit during busy Saturday.
