Description: While our building has roots as an old icon, the town's drive-in, we have updated the space and the menu. Yes, we have old favorites like burgers and fries but have many items prepared from scratch using fundamental culinary skills. We call that "real food!" We are happy to accommodate food sensitivity needs and dietary concerns. Check our facebook page or website for a current menu.

“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

The fry sauce is addicting to eat. It's homemade and delish! My hubby is from this area of the state and we always drive through Springfield. It's right on US 14 and easy to find on the West side of Springfield. They also have great Greek Gyro Wraps. You've gotta try them.

“Nice variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

This used to be a drive-in only during the summer months with the standard (although very good) burgers, chicken, etc. They have expanded to having an inclosed dining area complete with fireplace and couch for those who want to hang out for awhile. There is also a larger patio area with a pretty flower garden for those who like to eat outside, weather permitting. The Drive-in is family owned and operated. They are open year round now except for a couple of weeks in January for their vacation. Excellent broasted chicken.

“Lovely food, very reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2010

Family owned and run diner, home made food. Order food at counter then you take a seat in the dining room and the food is brought to you. Free refills on drinks from soda fountain. Highly recommend the hot wraps! Lots of things made from scratch and bread baked fresh daily, really tasty. Incredibly friendly staff!
