I grew up in Brooksville and this is the place we always went to eat. Love this place and even though it has changed a little over the years one thing is for sure. The food and atmosphere is still nostalgic and is a piece of Brooksville history. So if you are just passing through the area or been there... More

A pleasant blast from the past. Great hot dogs, enjoyable atmosphere and friendly people serving the foot longs. If you're in the area this Drive Inn is not to be missed.

Had two grandkids with us and we all enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The onion rings were crispy and hot. FF were good. Three of us ordered hotdogs different ways and one ordered a cheese burger which was ground meat not a patty served on a hotdog bun. My six year old grandson ate every bite.

Tried place on a whim. Got hot dog with chili cheese and onions, food was hot but the size of the hot dog is too small could barely find it. They need to make it thicker. My son got the loose meat cheeseburger tasted like taco meat. I may go back but only if I'm in the area and hungry... More

Stopped for a quick bite, heard about this place for years. Good food fast, with a historical drive in atmosphere, we will be back with the kids for more dogs and loose meat sandwiches, which i haven't had since i was a kid. Thanks for keeping it real!

Very enjoyable place to eat. Lots of 50's memorabilia on the walls. Elvis ate there while filming scenes from Follow That Dream in Inverness. The hotdogs are as good as they can get and reasonably priced. Order at the counter and sit at the picnic style benches, inside or outside. Menu has other fast food items as well. We recommend...

We drove over to Brooskville from Oakland to look at some furniture and saw some signs for this place and decided to give it a try. Pretty neat place they have there thats been opened since 1960. Lots of nostalgia on the walls inside and out. The dogs were really good, my son who is a picky 4 year old... More

What a cool joint. You step up, put in your order, than go find a table from the ample seating in the 2 connected rooms. While waiting, your eyes are drawn to all the old time signs and other memorabilia that covers the walls. In no time at all, they shout out your name, and you go get your food... More
