“Great shakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Basically the same place as it was a few decades before, and the milkshakes are terrific. A nice way to avoid the yuppie crowds downtown, and getter better food at the same time. Worth a stop when in L'ston.

“Please don't change anything about this place...it's perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Mark's is open for its 59th year. We had moved out of the region about 20 years ago. When we came back we found that Marks was not only still in business, but it was thriving. Although the facade had been updated, it was done in a way to maintain the character and charm of this drive in. Equally important, the food hasn't changed a bit. The food is inexpensive, the burgers are wonderful (perfect ratio of bun to filling) and the onion rings and French fries are crisp and are made in fresh oil (unlike the oil used by the Golden Arches chain). For a great, cheap meal that brings back the nostalgia of childhood, Mark's is the best place in Livingston.

“Don't let the lack of seating scare you away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

It did for us and we went to a cafe in town which was terrible. Ended up coming back here and buying a second meal. Excellent burgers and milk shakes. They are super fast. Took our food to the park to eat. Overall very yummy burger! Line was long when we went but it moves quickly.

“No better burger for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Brave the constant line and get the double cheeseburger and a Wilcoxson's ice cream shake! Three of us ate there yesterday -- all had burgers, fries, onion rings and shakes for $18!!!
