You know you are at a great burger joint when your clothes smell like a burger when you get home! It's worth it! My husband and I feel nostalgic when we eat here. You have to have the chocolate shake with your meal to throughly enjoy the experience.

Great place for lunch on the run. Awesome burgers and shakes. The fries are the best. Fun, fast, and delicious. What more can you ask?

This is not your typical burger Fast Food joint - yes, fast and friendly, but the food has few rivals in the "fast food hamburger" category. Drifter's knows beef, and only uses the best - a local Callicrate grown beef, which I'm told means hormone and antibiotic free - local, and sandwiched between wheat buns made without preservatives, etc. Attention to detail is obvious, and proof is always in the eating - delicious and always a choice of sliced or grilled onions. We also tried their chicken sandwich - and the chicken places around Colorado Springs should be ashamed - Drifter's Grilled Chicken Sandwich is juicy and flavorful - the real deal! Shakes are made by the Drifter's Shake Pros, and we could not use a straw - advertise "thick" and that is what you get here. We really liked the entire experience. And they are open for dinner as well.

We used to go every Saturday for a cheeseburger with grilled onions and a boysenberry milkshake. Now that I can't eat wheat, I just get the shake and fries. The burgers can't be beat. And when we want a breakfast burrito, this is the only place to go. Once you've had a B-52 Breakfast Burrito, there's no going back anywhere else. Period.

These burgers are delicious! They are basically just like In-N-Out burgers in California but I think better. The fries are delicious also and very cheap!
