This place really went downhill. There was a time when I couldn't wait to come to South Carolina visiting from Pennsylvania to go to this restaurant and eat the food there. I ordered fish and they gave me frozen breaded flounder. Not what I invasion in fried fish in the South.

Legendary to the locals! When eating here, you must have the gravy on your fries. Other than that, it's a typical "clock" type restaurant.

This is a typical 60s drive in that has lasted the test of time. No longer any car side service but the same great menu. Burgers and fries, Chicken plates, chili dogs, onion rings. Nostalgia!

Everything is really good-service, food and value. My go-to place for cheeseburgers or hotdogs. I do not want gravy on my fries, but my friends say it is fantastic.

We tried Time Drive Inn again last week and they were even worse that the last time!They got 1/2 of our orders wrong and the fried chicken was so dried out I could not even eat it!

Clean restrooms and dining area. Good solid food and great service. A local landmark that I have visited for almost twenty years. Really great burgers. Quaint customs such as serving slaw in a cup. Place just keeps getting better.
