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

It's always extremely crowded inside and hard to find a table. Their smoothies are amazing, burgers are good and their staff is always polite.

These are the kind of burgers that have the juices running down your arms! Great choices on the menu. Definitely not your average fast food restaurant

If you braught your appetite you are going to love eating here. The atmosphere and location to shopping is as good as it gets. You must try their burgers and specialty fries for a flavor you will not soon forget. There is room enough here for multiple bus loads of patrons as well as some cozy corners to fit you... More

This place has been in Yakima almost forever, and seems to be a popular eatery, but I find the food quality to be sub-par and the cleanliness questionable. I really don't enjoy fighting off flies while trying to eat.
