Service was efficient and friendly! Michigan and hot dogs were bland. I really wanted to rave about this visit because it's quaint! This is a good place to visit for the nostalgia of a "drive in"

We had lunch today at Clare & Carls. My wife had the cheeseburger & loved it. I had the fish & chips and it was OK. The fries were hot and tasty. The service was excellent.

Oh my gosh, I used to go here as a kid....you order "with or without", meaning a Michigan with onions or without! My husband and I stop there every year when we are in Plattsburgh...and can't wait to order some Michigans!!! They are the best!!!!!

Tired of chain restaurants, we gave this a try. Surprised, and pleased with the car hop service :) Michigans were delicious and service was quick.

This place has been here since the 50's. The building is sinking into the ground. Yet drive by, and you will see that the parking lot is packed. Mainly car hop service. One if the best michigans in town.
