We decided to try this restaurant out while on vacation. It looked like a cute little place. We weren't acknowledged by the staff at all. The food was pretty good, nothing to rave about. This isn't a place we will return to when we go back to Anacortes.

I'm pretty particular about hamburgers. That said, my double cheeseburger at Fidalgo's, was simply divine: two well-cooked beef patties (that actually tasted like beef), generous slice of American cheese, mayo, fresh and crispy lettuce, ripe tomato, all served on a fresh, grilled bun. The curly fries...well...I just couldn't stop eating them. They were piping hot, not at all greasy, fried to perfection. Service was fast and friendly. I will return!!!

This place is always reliable with really good food, and excellent value.

Today my husband and I ate here after a wonderful late afternoon/early evening hiking and geo-caching in the Anacortes Forest Lands trails.

We were very happy with the small shrimp basket. It comes with fries, 2 kinds of sauces, garlic bread, large mug of root beer, and Ivar's clam chowder. We also ordered a side salad which was very fresh looking with lettuce, olives, hardboiled egg, tomatoes, etc. I had a deluxe cheeseburger. Later, we ordered a blackberry milkshake which was delicious.

There is both inside dining and outside dining. You can even see Mount Baker a little bit. This would be a family-friendly place.

Since originally this was an A and W drive-in, there are still order stations outside where you do not have to leave your car - the food is brought to you. (No, the young ladies are not wearing roller skates anymore.)

My mom and i stopped in last week and ordered hamburgers and fried stuff.. the burgers tasted like cardboard, dry, burnt meat, and no flavor at 7 dollars a piece.. we would of been better eating at jack in the box next door. The fried food was good. The girl got our order wrong and was very rude...slammed the burger into the trash with an attitude.. never order a burger from here.. also..too funny..the sign out at the road says.. best burgers in anacortes..wow..so not true..maybe the person should of said..worst burger ever..best onion rings and fried mushrooms..

I had a chicken breast sandwich, it came with hamburger grease all over it, changing the flavor to almost inedible. The girl at the counter was so new she had to ask someone else how to do anything and everything.
