“Great local spot”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Unique food. Location is small but worth checking out. Food is good and they have a quaint little bar.

“Great Little Place!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

It's tiny but quite an experience. The menu has a crazy mix of everything from ahi tuna and calamari to burgers. Clearly the kitchen knows how to prepare a tasty variety of dishes. Portions are big and prices are very reasonable. They only have about 30-35 seats and a little bar, but the staff hustles to make the experience pleasant. We went on the recommendation of one of the locals and were surprised to find many of the other locals had never tried it. They seemed to do a lot of take out and the line for seating was forming as we left. I would suggest going during off times, but worth the wait for sure!

“Misleading name”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Very odd menu for a place called a drive in. Had never been there before but heard about it from friends. Not a place for large parties or kids. Very small interior and limited menu. Check the menu before going so you won't be surprised when you get there. Food was ok as well as service but will not be returning.

“Worthy”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We were near Joplin on our trip and had to check out the Eagle Diner. WELL worth the stop. Timed it so we were after the lunch crowd. Still pretty busy as it is a small place. Absolutely a great burger and friendly service.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great food, great service. A little small, but they really do their best to seat you and serve you. Wonderful food, not your everyday, ordinary hamburger, steak. Fries are to die for. Their sauces are very unique!! What a pleasant experience!! Will go back!
