This drive-in is very handy in summer. Good burgers (I choose buffalo meat) great shakes and various other not-so-healthy things of sugar and grease. If a local kid asks you for a Clown cone, expect a fancy, expensive thing, and it is cheaper to order a small cone for your dogs to share than to order individual dog dishes. One... More

Made a quick U-turn when driving through and stopped for some ice cream. The berry shake was outstanding and the cones were huge. Well worth the stop.

Family run very friendly and good food. The ice cream and milk shakes are always worth the stop! It is open spring through fall and closed in the winter.

We stopped by for ice cream, but I ended up getting the bottle caps (deep friend jalapeno peppers). They were good and a nice treat. I followed that with a milkshake. Need to return soon for a cone.

This is a fun mom and pop drive in diner. They have a good menu and excellent milk shakes and malts. No indoor seating but plenty of outdoor seating. You must stop here on your way to Wallowa Lake!

You really get your money's worth here. The burgers are available with locally grown beef at an additional charge. I tried it and it is worth it.

The burgers are great! The fries are okay, nothing special. (Be sure to ask for fry sauce and pick up some salt packets.) Shakes are incredible! Finish off your meal with a large ice cream cone. The night we went it was super busy. As this is a small, owner run establishment the service is rather slow, but they did... More
