We come up to Bryson often and usually make at least one trip to Nabers for hamburgers, hotdogs, onion rings, chocolate shake... Your typical drive in food. It has always been consistent and satisfying the guilty pleasure drive in food. We often go after hiking and like sitting in our car down by the river. Remember cash only...

We came to Bryson City for the first time and had read some reviews on Nabors drive in . We decided to try it thinking the fried chicken would be good. The chicken in fact is not chicken but Cornish game hens which is way smaller and has a different taste. The "chicken" was served to us burnt and very... More

Have driven by many times. Always seems full. Stopped in and ordered a few burgers and fries. Service was friendly. Food was pretty tasty. A decently good burger. Will return.

Nothing fancy, just an old style drive in by the river, the food was good and service was quick. I got a cheeseburger and it was good.

Will not return! Terrible service and food. Ordered fried chicken which was way over cooked and one of the four pieces was nothing but skin and bone (no meat!), when we brought it to the server's attention "that's the way it is". Well not for us! Waste of money.

Had a burger and cole slaw here. Nothing really to write home about -- the premises are clean and the food was average. It was cool to be served at your car -- so it was a blast from that particular past. Otherwise, I didn't find anything special about the food.

I was introduced to this place by a friend that lives local, i wasnt expecting much for a $1-3 dollar range but the food was excellent, hot and just what i wanted. I recommend the BBQ sandwich.

Visited Na-Bers for lunch today for the first time. Wife and I decided to eat inside, it was starting to get busy but we found a table, checked out the menu and made a game plan. My wife wanted a hamburger and I wanted a cheeseburger, we shared a order of onion rings because we knew we wanted ice cream... More

Stopped for dinner - wanted to watch the river from the car as we ate. Order via mike from your car at the old fashioned menu stations in the lot - covered for some shade and rain protection. FUN My Bacon cheeseburger was HUGE with 5 slices of bacon for less than $3. Fried were good, ambiance one of a... More

Family used to stop here on our way to Murphy before the interstate was built and you had to go through Bryson City. Hadn't been in probably 30 years but it brought back great memories!
