I absolutely love this place! There are not enough drive-in joints in this world. I have great childhood memories of this place. They many have the best French fries I've ever had. If you haven't been here check it out!

Burkie's really is a gem. They haven't changed much outside. Little surprised their equipment still works. But, it does. It brings back memories of when my dad used to bring us here. My last review mentioned their fries. Well, I ordered some recently and they...More

My first job was at Burkies in the 60's. They are known for their breaded tenderloins and cherry cokes with a pretzle on the straw (years ago). They have excellent service and refills on the soft drinks.

Before I came to Ball State, one of my friends who had been to school up here told me, "You HAVE to go to Burkie's!" Of course, I went, and was not disappointed! The food is typical drive-in food, but it's delicious! The cherry Cokes...More

Opened by a new owner, they are doing a good job of bringing back Muncie's "Fabulous 50's & beyond," popular Drive-In restaurant. We can pull under the canopy & order over the Menu-Microphone post, from your vehicle window, or drive through, pick up at the...More

Drive-ins are cool, and Burkie's is very cool. The location is convenient, the parking spaces are covered, and the food is always made to order and done right. Do not -- I repeat do NOT -- go for a fast-food burger when you can get...More

A beautiful fall afternoon at a drive in with car side ordering speakers under the covered parking area sets the scene for what was the promise of a great break. And, just a very short time after ordering, a very pleasant worker brought the food...More
