The fish and chips here are excellent: very little breading and not in the least bit greasy. Great service. Give this home town treasure a try.

Stopping by for a couple of great burgers. A great selection to choose. Drive up locations are cleared off well.

The owner of this drive-in has been trying to sell it for a very long time...Ithink the food and service is suffering do to the time she spends trying to sell the R-B. Menu needs updating, and there should e more "combo" offerings.

I go there specifically for the halibut fish and chips. Old style order from your car and a waitstaff person brings it out.

A burger and fries at this classic joint is a 70-year Helena tradition. Orders are placed through a vintage speaker system and your food is delivered car-side. The food is made to order, and the quality is a huge step up on typical burger joints. Their RB special sauce is slightly spicy and is just awesome on burgers and fries.... More
