A great burger for many years. Try a Galley Boy O rings and a California. Nothing better.

“very popular”

go back in time - they only in the last decade or so allowed women to work there! Locals love it, but I don't understand the attraction.

“A Classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

We go to Swenson's several times during the warmer weather months. Love the burgers, onion rings & both the Florida and California drinks. The service is always fast and food fresh & hot.

“The best and fun too!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

Fun drive-in experience. All year around. Of course, it's more fun in the summer time...but the food is worth going at any time...you can always get it to go as well! Don't forget the Hot Fudge Milkshake....wow!
