“Memories of the Past, food was average!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The buildings look like giant Kegs, and it is an old style drive in with the menus posted on a stand with a call button. Reminded me of the olden days of A&W. We had the Clubhouse combo, and the Chili-cheese burger combo. We opted for the onion rings instead of fries, and were pleasantly surprised. The combo's come with a drink included, and for both meals it was just over $11.00!. Great value for your dollar, but the burger was a little greasy. The clubhouse was fine, and as mentioned the onion rings were very good. I would recommend checking it out for nostalgia sake, and a very reasonably price lunch. While there are lots of good restaurants in Grand Forks, none can match the uniqueness of this place. It certainly took us for a ride down memory lane.

“Old school drive-in, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is a seasonal restaurant in Grand Forks that is tucked away in a residential area. It is an older drive-in (which is a rarity these days) that offers shakes, burgers, and other typical drive-in type of food. It is a little different than other drive-in diners I have been to in that you press a button and a server comes out to your vehicle to take your order (there are no actual speakers). The shakes and malts are really delicious. I had the bacon cheeseburger and my husband ordered the monster burger. They were both average in taste but heavy in grease. The fries are just ok but the onion rings are pretty good. Before you go to the Kegs, you should also know that they only take cash and local checks. The first time we came here we did not know this and we were instructed to return our food and go down the road several blocks to an ATM (that was broken) before we could dine. If you want a unique, fast lunch I would suggest stopping by to check it out but there are definitely better places to get a burger in Grand Forks.
