Love the nostalgia, but check your receipt. Visited in August and when asked for the receipt, our waitress said she only had a handwritten receipt, and did not give us a copy. Normally I would not think twice, but just as we were leaving, I noticed we were given small sundaes and paid for large. The waitress was pleasant and... More

Black cows (root beer and vanilla custard blended together) are AMAZING. They are a family favorite, along with onion rings and a good sundae! Burger, onion rings, and black cow= perfect lunch.

Drive-in with all the classics....burgers, dogs, shakes and great frozen custard. Can get really busy in summer evenings, but service is usually pretty good. Free doggie dishes of custard for the four legged friends,

A great old time feel of a drive up root beer stand!! The day we stopped, the weather was cold & rainy, but our car-hop was friendly and brought our food out hot. The onion rings were some of the best and large enough portion to share. Fries were also tasty & a large portion. Burgers are typical drive-in quality,... More

The Kilte has great drive in food that is always flavorful and hot. You must always save room as the desserts are always special from the sundaes to the malts.

I assume that the manager is some sort of pervert, after seeing how the girls were dressed but aside from that it was so good! Their ice cream, shakes and malts were so good.

Go Back as I have, again and again! I love their Fish Basket and the price is right! Ice, ice cream, ice cream and as good as it gets! An old fashioned drive-inn and I love it. The atmosphere the food and as I said, the ice cream. If you don't care for their Sundaes you don't know a thing... More

An old school type drive in restaurant. From it's kitschy light fixtures to it's car hops, you will be delighted that you stopped. You can have a burger or custard sundays. It's a fun place to go to.
