The Drive-In is a place you absolutely must try! Their burgers are perhaps the best I've ever had, and after reading the story of the beef from which they're made, I understand why. You can opt to have curb service and eat in your car, but I HIGHLY recommend parking and sitting under the large shaded area or an umbrella... More

Outdoor area was spectacular. Service was decent. Food was OK. We enjoyed our time here and is definitely a must go for Taylor Falls. We may play mini golf next time.

We pulled in our truck after a day of hiking and boat ride in beautiful Taylor's Falls. We had cheeseburgers, California burger (they fried onions upon request), and a bacon cheeseburger basket. Delicious and our server was quick and attentive to our window tray! Highly recommended!

I love this stop when visiting Taylor's Falls. It's a fun throw back diner and the food is good. Make sure you order a root beer. It comes in a frosty mug.

This was our second visit here. We stopped in for lunch before heading down the St. Croix in kayaks. The burgers are flavorful, cooked perfectly, seasoned perfectly, and just the right size, topped with a fresh, pillowy bun (where do they get these? do they make them in house?). They have tasty, cooked-just-right golden crinkle fries - I love crinkle... More

No, not really. You can't go back. But, it's very nice to be in a place where, for the summer, the local kids can get a job at the drive in and mini golf course. They play up the fifties atmosphere, successfully. The food, malts and soda's very much a step up from fast food chains. It is a small... More

There used to be a drive-in in almost every small town. This one is still open, has good food, good root beer "made fresh daily" and a very cool setting. The boys really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the drive in, but chose to sit in at the picnic table. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. I was surprised at the elevated prices so I expected something special. Nope nothing special here! In fact I felt a little ripped off. Just over priced food. I ordered a small order of sweet potato fries for $3.99 and was... More
