“OMG! This taco place has a lot of history and great food!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

This is a real establishment in Rochester and has been around since at least the early 1970's. It's a great Mom & Pop type family-owned and run "hamburger stand" that has a pretty extensive menu including its unusual but addicting rolled tacos and homemade chips and hot sauce. I've been dining here since the early 1970's and now that I no longer live in IN, whenever I'm in town and they're open for the summer months, I make at least one visit (more if I can sneak them in). They also have great huge pork tenderloin sandwiches that IN is famous for. I don't know why people who live in this town would bother with the other fast food places as long as Dick's Drive In is open. A lot of people come here and just dine in their cars like at an A & W Root Beer or Sonic place. There are a couple of picnic tables outside and limited inside seating to dine (three or four tables that could seat four or so each?). There can be a long wait for food sometimes as this place can get busy in the summer, so is okay to call your order in ahead and have it ready to just come to pick up. Note: this is a very casual restaurant/drive-in so come as you are!
