“Really good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

From Maryland, visiting northern MN for a few days. Stopped by on a whim - boy, was this good. Had fried fish and shrimp - both were excellent, fresh and light breading - excellent! Everyone was super nice - cooks (owners) and wait staff included. Will let all MN friends know of this gem, and visit again next year. Will try the ribs next time!

“good pastie flavor, soggy pastry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Pastie supposed to contain 1/2 pork & 1/2 beef (no beef in mine), diced carrots, rhutabaga and potato seasoned with salt, pepper and onion. The pastry looks good but was soggy. I'm guessing it was re-heated in a microwave. A hot oven re-heat would help. Service was quick. No offer for a refill on soda.
Cute car theme.

“PASTIES!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

That's meat pies for those of you not familiar with the term...I am so happy whenever I visit the K&B Drive in near Eveleth. I currently live in Florida so don't get to have pasties very often, therefore, this is a MUST STOP when in the northern Minnesota area. The pasties are wonderful and just like the ones I remember when I was young. Have them with or without gravy (I like ketchup on mine) and eat in or take out. You can even get them frozen to take home and cook at a later time. But I am usually staying in a hotel, so I get mine HOT to go or stay there and eat in. Either way, if you haven't tried the pasties, you are missing out on real treat.

By the way - the other food is good here, too. Burgers and fries, onion rings. Everything is delicious! And the fact that you can drive up and park and eat in your car is still a unique feature. (Even tho I always just park in the back and go in to eat inside).

“Neat place, ok food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Driving by on the highway, this looks like a real neat place to stop. Unfortunately, it's often crowded and takes a long time to get your food. I might bring friends here just to give them a taste of the area.

“More than a drive-in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Our entire family dined here and had many of the dishes offered. No one was disappointed. The staff was fun and very accomodating and the prices were very fair. The service was excellant.
