“Wow, was I surprised!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

From the road this place looks like a joint but to my pleasant surprise it was really great! Prices were reasonable and the kids meal comes with soft serve ice cream. It's right beside the River Rat and the mountaineer campground. The food was tasty and they had drive in music playing. We were soaking wet as we had just completed a run on the river but the picnic tables were outside under covered shed so it didn't really matter. They even had a "dog bar" for pets. Very charming, will definitely return. The only downside is the restroom is an outhouse.

“Yummy ice cream”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for a quick bite after a trip through Cade's Cove, luckily it wasn't crowded, service was a tad slow but I'm not complaining, food was obviously cooked to order and all FRESH! Prices are very reasonable, and menu choices are a plenty! The ice cream is delicious, cheap and you can get it with sprinkles or dipped..Try it you won't be disappointed!! Did I mention the ice cream rocks?? Lol

“Life How it Should Be”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

My husband and I spent Memorial Day weekend in and around Townsend. On Sunday night around 8 p.m. we decided ice cream sounded like a good snack so we rode our bikes to Burger Master Drive In. Everyone in Townsend must have had the same idea because we arrived and saw very long lines. We got in line and spent the next 30 minutes in amazement that so many people were having fun and being patient, no one was grumbling and everyone seemed to realize they were experiencing one of life's simple pleasures -- getting soft serve ice cream on a perfect summer night. The employees were really hustling but had a great attitude and were clearly enjoying the crowd and business. Our two twist cones were worth the wait and we will definitely go back again.

“Very rude people!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

The food is good, but after spending $55.00 on a meal for 5 people, one of the servers gave my 10 year old daughter a hard time about asking for ONE coke refill! The server then argued with my husband about it when he asked her what the problem was! Will NOT be going back!
