Lived here for 15 years and never stopped, but got curious. Old fashion building with "car hop" service or sit inside service. The building is an old A&W root beer business. Got the Alaskan Halibut with fries, garlic bread and a bowl of Ivar's clam chowder. The service was fast, food hot and delicious! Glad I stopped.

The service was a little slow the day we stopped for lunch. The burger and fries were OK for fast food.

When I'm in the area of Annacortes, WA I always make time for the Fidalgo Drive Inn. I really enjoy several of their offerings including the Dungeness Crab sandwich, Angus Swiss burger or the Tillamook Bacon Cheddar burger. The side I usually choose is the deep fried mushrooms but once in awhile I'll get the tater tots. The staff always... More

We've eaten at this place several times. One time we were passing by and they were advertising their peach milkshakes. They are good! The food is also good. Although it's mainly a burger place, the fish and chips are good as well. And we always include the peach shake!

Not much healthy food here but it's s local establishment and if you are looking for fried food this is the place on the main drag. It's an old place not much updating and it's probably been here for decades and it looks it. You can pull up and order outside or go in. It's very small inside. The staff... More

We had the special, which is two cheeseburgers for about $5. The burgers are large and delicious. They taste fresh and are a good value for the money. Friendly service, too.

This is a quaint drive-in dinner (there is also limited indoor and outdoor seating as well). There is nothing fancy or sophisticated here. But the food is delicious and the setting takes you back in time; so nostalgic! They were actually playing OLD country music (think Wylie Nelson, Dwight Yokum and Shania Twain)! We ordered the fish & chips and... More

Had a great burger and fries for lunch this week. Friendly staff. Their French dip sandwich is the best one in the Puget Sound area. The turkey sandwich is huge. I substitute a salad for fries when I want to fell like I'm being healthy. Enjoy!!
