This place is the best fried food in the capital region, the burgers are awesome and so is the fish fry. I'd suggest to put salt on the fries. Th ice cream here is very convinient and it's also very delicious! Great Place!

It’s only a short distance from our house to the Country Drive-In, but we try to limit our visits to only once a year… well, at least for the food. Ice cream trips might exceed that. Our standard food order is for Sausage Sandwiches with peppers & onions ($6.29) and Onion Rings ($3.79/$4,89). The menu says the sausage sandwich comes... More

I ate here around 15 years ago and liked it. This last weekend, my family went there for fish and fries. French fries were stale tasting, The fish was so dry and lacked taste. We requested tarter sauce and when we got home discovered that they did not put it in the bag. I even asked if all the sauces... More

This is our favorite place for ice cream in the summer! LOTS of ice cream choices' they also have Dole Whip and soft serve frozen yogurt. The food menu is pretty extensive and usually very good. They even have gluten free rolls, and gluten free cones. Seating is outside- there are plenty of tables with large umbrellas, and a small... More

Our family makes trips from Albany to the Adirondacks on the Northway at least twice a year, so we pass by Country Drive-in at least 4 times, and it has become our regular mid-trip destination, and about the only place we eat fast-food roadside fare all year. Hamburgers = country drive-in quality [good to very good], same with the french... More

Have been having their fish fries for years on our annual trip to Saratoga from Georgia. Have always looked forward to it. This year the fish was not as good as in the past. Will give it one more chance but was disapointed.

I stopped by for a quick bite on Labor Day. They were busy but the order was taken smoothly and pleasantly. I ordered hot dogs, onion rings and a shake. All were very good, especially the onion rings. I definitely will stop again when I am in the area.

A well-maintained, vintage roadside food and soft ice cream stand with window service. Not to be missed for the nostalgia alone. Clean plastic-top picnic tables with colorful umbrellas. They have kid-sized tables too. Parking in the front and back. Their homemade onion rings are the best.

The ice cream is ultimate perfection and as a result we're great fans of the addicting treats!! 🍧 The window personnel are so professional in presentation and eagerness to serve. We will be back again!!

A Clifton Park staple. It's ok. The only thing exceptional is the onion rings. The lobster roll is pretty good as well but the rest of the food is middle of the road. Also every time I go I'm amazed on how expensive it is for a burger, fries and a drink.
