Popular with locals and us! Basic fast food but the burgers are lovely and the milkshakes really tasty. Constant business so they must be doing something right. We discovered this last time and so make sure lunchtime we can stop for a snack if local.

If you want old fashioned this is it! Hasn't changed in over 50 years, still serving the same great food and ice cream. It's drive up or walk up, no indoor seating. But they do have picnic tables. A Butte institution.

Large menu of traditional "fast_food" items, but all are prepared when you order so all are fresh and hot off the grill or cold right out of the fountain.

Stopped here on our way thru Butte and it was exactly what we expected. Cheap burgers and fries and best kid fare you can get anywhere. Did I mention this place is cheap? Good food to go! Buy local! Beats the fast food chains by miles.

It's soft serve ice cream but they add REAL fruit for flavor of the week. I had a regular hamburger that was delicious. Service at walk up window was great.

This little Ma and Pa drive-in is definitely old school. It is a fun place to enjoy an ice cream-especially on cone day-Wednesday. Try the sprinkles on your cone.

The Bonanza Freeze has been around since the 1950's and for a quick lunch or a yummy treat it can't be beat. The onion rings are delicious! It is a repeat "go to" for our family.
