Love driving up to Boomer's & ordering their Boomer Burger, waffle fries & a shake from the comfort of my car. The servers are quick & always friendly. You'll enjoy the comforts of eating in your car.

This is an old fashioned drive in diner where you can eat in your car (food delivered to you) or sit inside where there is 50s decor and music. I was there at a busy lunch hour. My order was taken efficiently, but due to the large number of people ahead of me, it took a while to get my... More

We went there for lunch and it was an old school drive in. The burgers were good but the shakes were amazing, they had so many flavors. We will be back next time we are in Bellingham.

We were heading back to Vancouver after a couple of days in Seattle and wanted to eat something on US soil that was unique to the area before hitting the border. I did a quick Google search and found this place was open. It was dinner time, we were starving and this seemed to be the right type of fit... More

The shakes were really good, but other than that the burgers were okay but flavourless, We've had better. Will not be back.

We use to go here for a burger but mostly only go for shakes now, they have good shakes. Burgers were good at first but started noticing a certain slimyness (sp?) to them that we don't find at other burger places. We don't eat the burgers anymore. On a better note, I've heard the waffle fries are very good, but... More

I was walking back to my hotel and stopped in on a Saturday in November right at 12pm. As I walked into the sit down area, I noticed that at least the 3/4 of the drive in spots were full. Upon entering the sit down area about half the seats were full, which soon changed. I ordered a burger combo... More

Boomers is a typical drive in style 50's restaurant, with great food and great prices. My favorites are the onion rings and shakes.

Found this place by mistake driving to Vancouver. I'm glad I made this mistake. The food was great and the service just as good. The kids got a real kick out of being served at the car and eating in the car. The meals were reasonably priced also. They serve the kids meals in a cardboard model of either a... More

Boomer’s Drive-In – Voted the Best Burger in Bellingham again & again!Great Food | Great Price | Great FunBoomer’s great food has been a local family favorite for decades. Our customers have enjoyed the same great menu of gourmet Boomers Burgers, world-famous waffle fries, real hard ice cream milkshakes, yummy hot dogs, fresh salads and old-fashion car hop service for years.Serving families in Bellingham since 1989, Boomer’s Drive-In has become a local icon. People who enjoyed Boomers as a child are now bringing their kids and grand kids to enjoy the same great food. Little about Boomers has changed over the years and we strive to keep it that way.
