Restaurant details
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I have been to this establishment on several occasions. Sometimes the food quality is good, sometimes it's not. Feeling lucky & a little courageous, I went there this morning, sat down and ordered corned beef hash with eggs, toast and a cup of coffee. $10.54! Without Tip! OUTRAGEOUS. No wonder there were only two other people in the entire place during what should be a busy time. Customers attempting to support the local economy shouldn't be over charged and feel ripped off! Done and Done.

Husband had the hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes. Turkey was lunchmeat. Gravy was packaged. I had the hot hamburger with Fries instead of mashed. Bread was stale. Hamburger was fine. Gravy was packaged. Fries were crisp. Did not bother taking leftovers. They do serve breakfast all day and although it was lunch time many were ordering breakfast. The breakfast portions were very large.

Everything was great except the price is a little high for this area compared to other breakfast spots.

Drifter's is easy to find, as it is on a main highway. Portions are large, and they have a tremendously varied menu. Staff was very helpful. I had a hamburger special, which was excellent. Great choice for a family. Only drawback: no beer!

We have seen drifters for Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Always huge portions, fresh ingredients, and fast service. And a great price! Salads are enormous. Burgers are hand made. Country fried steak had gobs of sausage gravy on it. Breakfast sandwich was enough for two meals.
