Reviewed December 10, 2012

Old fashioned order at the window place with some outdoor seating. Just plain old good food with reasonable prices.

“Best Burger Joint in Shelby!”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

My husband is from the Shelby area, but we had never eaten there until a friend told him about it. So one day, for lunch, we decide to give this place a try and we loved it! You get a tasty and large hamburger that tastes fresh! They do not skimp on the portions here either, so you don't leave here hungry! The only thing is that you can't really dine inside and you have to pretty much either eat it outside or take it home with you. If you come to Shelby, this is a place that you and your family needs to try!

“A Shelby Institution”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

for wonderful hamburgers - made fresh while you wait. Also, offers other plates and combos. Hard to beat a good Taste-T cheeseburger.

“Terrific Local Experience - Bring Cash.”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

I heard that they grind their own meat daily for their burgers, and was looking for a good chocolate shake too, so the Taste-T Drive-In sounded like a good bet. This busy local spot is a walk-up hamburger stand where you order at the window, pay cash, and if you want, you can eat on the covered deck that is across the small parking lot or take it with you. We ordered cheeseburger baskets with chocolate shakes, an easy first-timer's order, and enjoyed them very much. The burgers and crinkle fries were hot and fresh, and the shake was chocolaty and thick. Judging from what others were ordering, the chuckwagon is good, as is their fish sandwich.

If you know their menu well enough, around the side is a pick-up window for called-in orders, which seemed like a good thing, because it is a busy place around lunchtime. I'd love to see their menu online, it's diverse, and should have something for everyone.

We will definitely eat there whenever we return to Shelby.
