Have past the diner a zillion times but timing for eating never worked until today. So quaint and clean. Great, friendly service. Everything fresh. The French fries were perfect as was the root beer and chocolate banana malt. Typical diner food but well done.

This place has a very nice outdoor seating area not visible from the highway. Very nice on a hot summer's day. The Drive In's claim to fame is their house made root beer served in frozen mugs.
