Boomer's is a 50's style drive in. It has .any burger choices, fries, shakes and soda. They even have an actual drive-in! The food is fresh and made to order, and the service superb! A great stop for those on the go or in need of a quick meal. To be sure this one will remain on our list of... More

Boomers's has the best burgers they are freshly made and it is a drive in. The shakes are definitely a hit too. This is a great place to go if you want quick food that is fresh and not a hassle.

They offer a excellent gluten free hamburger bun with their burger! Their milkshakes are worth the calories and you have several flavor choices. My sister had the fish and chips and said they were great. A drive in where they take your order from your car and you can eat in your car or you can eat in their dining... More

Visiting B.C. from Ontario and took a trip down to Washington to say I've been there. Found this on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Got the #1 combo (burger, shake & waffle fries). The burger was good but not outstanding. The waffle fries were better and the shake was fantastic! Glad we went.

We loved the milkshakes here, made with real ice cream, scooped by hand! The waffle fries are also great, the hamburgers are good, but pretty normal. Not a bad meal!!!

Yesteryear lives on at Boomers. Pull up, turn your lights on, a gal comes to the window to take your order and returns in about 10-15 minutes to hang a tray on your window with all your food. I ordered a combo #1 (burger, shake, waffle fries) & my wife tried the veggie burger, shake, & onion rings. What can... More

Drive up, turn on your headlights and a waitress comes right to your car to take your order! In no time, your food is delivered right to you! A nice, extensive burger joint- type menu makes you think of days where kids gathered at the hamburger stand on Friday nights!

I'm hear to tell you that Boomers is the BOMB! When I've been out and about in Bellingham, I often stop into Boomers and grab a burger before heading home. I have a 40 min. drive home from Bellingham, and so it's very nice to have a place that will serve you quickly. The best part is I don't have... More

I am old enough to remember an A&W with a drive up service wherein you used a phone to call in your order. This place is a great slice of Americana from that bygone era; obviously the model is still working today. We chose to eat inside and the place was packed. Great burger, great waffle fries (never had those... More

Let me start by saying you won't find a better deal on a burger, fries and milkshake combo than at Boomers, you get all three for under eight dollars and the food is really tasty. You have the option of either curbside service, complete with carhop and tray on your car window, to go, or eating inside the restaurant. The... 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.
