“Go to a sonic!”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The food is beyond terrible and overpriced. I acted here twice...both times I got sick within minutes...there's a McDonalds down the street, go there instead.

“Not up to the hype”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

I had heard about the Circus Drive In for years and driven by it for years so one night my husband and I went there for burgers and onion rings. I was very disappointed. Not very good ,we didn't even finish our food. I won't be returning

“Maybe a kids spot but the food is mediocre...”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

Uniques drive in with car hop service or a dining room... boring menu with prepared foods and a lok of grease, Not healthy. Wait staff all young girls are attentive and friendly but the food is there when you want are passing and hungry... no problem if you miss it. They are closed off season.

“Cute Place from a simplier Time”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

I went to this place as a child had happened to pass it by a few years back on the way to the shore and had to give it a try. It is a casual place with a great family atmosphere. We try to go at least once a year when we go to the shore. Was there a few weeks ago on a friday and it was packed. The food is good and the sevice is great!

“Fun dining experiene”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

We had no idea where we'd stop in Wall, NJ to eat dinner. We spotted the round building and fun sign and decided to stop in. We're glad we did. The food was kinda average but there was so much of it. The servers were great and seemed happy to be working there. It's pretty much open air but very clean. If we lived anywhere near Wall, NJ, we'd go back.
