The Seattle rental car fellow told us about this place since he knew we were on our way to Vancouver BC. A fun little place to stop for a good burger. It is always a bit funky going to a local place because they just assume you know how it works. We figured it out that you order at the... More

This is one in my main rotation when I visit. The burgers are great, and the shakes (my favorite is oreo) alone are forth the trip. I always need to order double waffle fries because my brother steals mine.

This place does what it says on the tin - it's a drive in diner. (There is also seating inside if you prefer). Having not been to many diners I was seeking out an authentic experience and I believe I got it here. Food was fast and tasty, in good portion sizes and with a decent range of menu choices... More

Turn on the lights for service. A great little burst of the past in this 50's style drive in. The burgers are great and so are the milk shakes. Corn Dogs and fried mushrooms also reminded of earlier days. A great little treat on a Tuesday Night. We will be back.

I'm a huge In and Out burger fan and I really liked this burger. Big patty with a good bun, messy but enjoyable. I liked the fries OK, but I prefer straight fries so I'm no judge. Didn't have the milkshake, the burger filled me up. Looking forward to going again.

Great burger that fills you up. Milkshakes are amazing needless to say. Has drive in area which is fantastic. Food takes a little bit of time but soooooo worth it.

My husband and I were really craving a burger joint, and I'ma sucker for 50's Style Diners. When we found this place, we were skeptical from the outside scene, but once inside and seeing the menu, we were quite interested! The menu had a nice variety of foods, and they were accommodating to special requirements for our meals. Of course,... More

Ordered a Garden Burger. After I bit into it, I realized I got a greasy meat burger instead. Called and asked them to correct the mistake. They told me I could get added to a "redemption list" and come to get a new one within six months. I asked them to remake it today since it was my lunch. Of... More

Really cool drive-in in Bellingham. We don't have anything like it in Vancouver anymore. The boomers special is great: burger, waffle fries and a hard ice cream shake. You can choose up to three flavors for your shake. My go to is chocolate and banana where they use real bananas. We usually sit down as opposed to staying in the... More

My kids used to like the kid meals in the paper cars, now they eat the full size meals with milkshakes. Thankfully, the prices here are still reasonable. We had bacon burgers, a fish sandwich, waffle fries, onion rings and milk shakes. They were all good. Service was friendly.

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.
