Good treats. Slow service. They use good quality local ice-cream. Harder to get to northbound off of I5. Have to loop around under the freeway to get here and then loop back again to get back on northbound. I've lived here for decades and they have always been locally famous. I've never understood why

It could be argued that the reason we go to the Ashland Shakespeare festival, or visit Crater Lake, or see relatives in Medford if we had any, would just be an excuse to stop at K and R drive-in. Today was no exception. We love Umpqua ice cream. One scoop, two scoops, three scoops, four scoops-- I've actually seen people... More

I had high hopes for this road stop. I found it to be just an average place that sold burgers, ice cream, etc. At this stop off of I5, you order at the window and sit outside to eat. There are not any restrooms - even for customers. The employees seemed most interested in just taking orders. We did not... More

Ice cream at Rice Hill has been a special family event since 1970. Thirty five flavors of local Umpqua ice cream from which to choose. Also a limited burger menu.

A incredible variety of Umpqua ice cream! You can even buy ice cream for your dog. Not to miss as you travel on Interstate 5

This Drive-In is well worth the stop if you enjoy ice cream. This ice cream is not typical, far from it! For instance I had lemon poppyseed ice cream and it was wonderful. They have got many many flavors and they are very creative. They also have burgers and stuff like that, but I've not ever stopped for that. We... More

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
