“Good food and service.”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

While passing through Beckley on the way to Pittsburgh my wife and I ate here. Very good food with homemade burger bun. They could capitalize on the name more with food names, statue, etc. but choose to keep it low key. Would eat there again for sure. Busy place so well regarded with the locals.

“a true drive - in experience”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

King Tut is a Beckley tradition. There is something comforting about eating in your car. Their food is cooked to order & it's great. Having a king burger on a homemade bun with all the trimmings is a wonderful tasting experience. Having any of their sandwiches with a twice baked potato covered in cheese is a really full meal. From steak hoagies, bbq, & hot dogs to one of their daily specials such as cornbread & beans or fried chicken livers, you can't go wrong. They have fresh pies made daily but don't count on having room left so get it to go.

“Favorite of generations!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

My mom remembers coming to King Tut Drive-In as a girl on the 1940's. My husband and I recently moved back to the area and come to King Tuts at least once a month. The drive-in stalls are always full, the runners are fast and friendly, and the food is delicious! They have a huge menu and daily specials. Don't miss this local institution!

“Great Drive In”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This place is a dying breed of drive-ins across America. The food is very good plus the time they have been in business and the people served speaks for itself. The hot dogs are in a one of a kind bun, and the fries are always good. We ordered a take out, and the food was hot and fresh. This is a trip worth taking if you are in Beckley. Very simple, but great.
