We don't do the fast food scene often but when we do most often it is a trip to Campus. When my daughter comes home, this is her most requested dinner. Always nummy

My boyfriend and I come in regularly and have never had anything other than superb service! Their burgers are amazing, and I LOVE their chicken strips! Wonderful environment and wonderful food!

After them being closed for the weekend was happy to seem them open for the holiday, so, of course I had to get a burger. Quick service tons of choices and fresh made each time, what else could you ask for. Campus always delivers, every time, no wonder it's always the popular place to go.

I used the FullestParkingLotEqualsBestFood method of choosing my burger on this night. It was just lovely - juicy and hot with fresh, crunchy veggies. My only disappointment was returning for another later in the week and discovering that they closed so early. Odd for a college town. Edit - had to go back and downgrade the service rating.

My families favorite for burgers, fries and shakes! So much variety for burgers and flavors of shakes! The fry sauce is good too! Friendly service and small area for sitting inside or outside to eat. Also has a drive thru.

Get a fry basket to share and a burger each or else you'll over spend. It's good food but you could easily spend way too much

This place is an Ellensburg institution and has been here since I was a little kid. Classic drive-in food. I especially like to get a bacon cheeseburger and a banana shake. They also have gluten free options for those who need them.

A lot of hype for a traditional burger and fries. Nothing special about it at all. It is a nice, old spot near CWU campus, but was very underwhelming. Also, I thought their signature tarter sauce was disgusting. It is a whipped tarter sauce, which I didn't care for at all.

I love eating here! Reminds me of college and I love the fries. Got the special (cheese burger, fries, drink). One of these days I will step outside of the box and get something different...maybe! :)
