All my kids and grandkids come to visit and then can hardly wait for the now required trip to the drive-in for ice cream. The burgers and chili dogs are just plain good drive-in food, and the fries are almost, just almost, too much for an athletic teen age male bottomless pit. I like vanilla malted shakes, which are sometimes... More

Anytime we find ourselves on I5 going through Rice Hill, we stop for wonderful Umpqua Ice Cream at the K and R Drive in. This place has been here forever. It is nothing fancy, just good ice cream and local color. They also have fast food, but we have never tried it. We just get the ice cream.

While there was an adequate variety of items on the menu, i.e. burgers, hot dogs, etc., the draw here is ice cream. It may have been an unusual day but the cones were large, a little expensive but the ice cream choices are really good and the resultant ice cream cones, shakes, dishes are very good. The service was a... More

Stopped in on our way home from Salem and WOW! What a cute little spot! The girls behind the glass were sweet and efficient. The seating is all outside on picnic benches. The Umpqua Ice Cream was delicious as expected. Hubs had a pulled pork sandwich that came with some pretty good Cole slaw. We will be stopping again should... More

Located on I-5 this is an old fashioned drive in. It has a good selection on the menu, burgers, fries, dogs, milkshakes and ice cream. Place your order, then you can wait at the picnic tables that are under a roof. The staff was friendly and had a short turn around on getting the food. This place has some interesting... More

This place is legendary on the I-5 corridor. Go thru rice hill? We always stop and order. The Umpqua Ice Cream is EPIC and made locally here in Oregon. Unique flavors like marionberry fill the list. I ordered a hamburger, fries and a small (hahah) dish of ice cream. There is no such thing as a small dish of ice... More

This place is good for ice cream, milkshakes, and fast food...not great on the french fries though, they were sorta dry and tasteless, although they were volcanic hot to the touch! Milkshakes were okay, a bit on the expensive side...my shake was made wrong and the mistake caught by the server who made me a correct one. For the location,... More

This is a stop I make almost every time I drive home from school. This time was by far the worst experience I have had here. The girl working the cash register was beyond rude. She threw the ticket at me and was slamming things inside. When she called my number she handed me an ice cream cone when I... More

We have been coming for forty years. Moved out of state and have now returned. Visited the "Ice Cream Place in Rice Hill" three times in the past two months. Glad to report no changes. They are still excellent. Keep in mind this is a drive-in burger and ice cream place. No fancy indoor seating. No fancy restrooms. Limited menu.... More

Stopped on the way to Ashland. Between the three of us, we had chiliburger, butter rum shake, fish & chips, ice cream cone and a burger, The fish and chips was smallish fingers of fish, probably cod. Chips (fries) were greasy. Chiliburger was overpriced for what there was. Burger was okay. Shake and cone were both good. The drive-in is... More
