They used to have a shrimp burger that was a good deal, but really, the food is not very good, and there are lots and lots of good restaurants all around there....Panda express if you need drive through, and Famous Dave's or Union Gap Diner for to go or eat in....

Home of the famous Big Miner Burger, which is not to be missed,they have plenty of other items they do just as well. My mom swears that their halibut fish & chips are the best! They Ave the bet tartar sauce too! No matter what you order, go with an appetite or be prepared to share. A small order of... More

A chicken Caesar salad with a huge grilled chicken breast. A breaded chicken sandwich big enough for two to share. A burger big enough for the hyper 20 year old. Great onion rings. Huge fries orders. And out the door under $35 including drinks. Great if your trip goes through Yakima. And the locals eat here, too!

The food is good and the price is a little high but you get a lot of food for the price. We had a large group and had a lot of leftovers.

Absolutely awesome. My bacon burger this trip was maybe the best one ever. Every bit as good (maybe better) than when I first visited in the 70s. Expensive in a way but you get what you pay for in terms of quality and portion. OUTSTANDING. Such great service and friendly workers. A deserved institution that still has it in excellence....

In town for just a Saturday night, we were looking for a place to eat after the MMA fights, and went to Miner's Drive-in Restaurant with others from the MMA teams. Open until 2:30am, we got there around 9pm and the place was jumpin'! Maybe it wasn't a typical Saturday night-- there were volleyball teams there after State-- but the... More

We've always been Miners fans/patrons, but tonight we did a taste test between Miners and Peppr'mint Stick Burgers. We got delux burgers, fries, and fry sauce from both places. By far Peppr'mint Stick won on everything! Miners food, freshness, quality and staff we're greatly lacking on all fronts. We ended up throwing most of it away. My reccomendation is to... More

I suppose I should venture into other areas of the menu but I've been satisfied with the Big Minor and fries for over50 years! Best burgers in the valley!

My husband and I love a good diner burger and had wanted to try this spot for a while now. Well, the burgers are about six inches in diameter and are impossible to eat. I was forced to cut the burger into eighths just to get it to my mouth. The bread was so soggy by the third cut I... More
