When we want to just sit in the car and let the car-hop bring the food, this is a good place for it. The burgers and fries have always been good and the drinks perfect. You can also park and go inside and enjoy a nice casual setting. If you are just looking for something to fill the hunger void... More

Place to go for great meal. Always the place I go too when back home in Chillicothe. Nothing fancy but always high quality.

Be warned, the menu that is attached to this restaurant on Trip Advisor is not the Sumberger menu. Don't know where is is from, but it is not Sumburger!!! Stopped in for lunch while traveling through Ohio. Neat little place, you place your order by the phone on the wall next to each booth. Service was quick and server was... More

Started in Chillicothe Ohio, this historic restaurant features the famous "Sumburger" sandwich which is a classic! You must try one when in town. The special sauce makes the burger and the crinkle cut fries are to die for. Milk shakes are hand dipped and delicious!

This was my first time visiting Sumburger drive in, and I ordered the junior platter hoping the burger would be a good size for the $7 price point. It was perfect- not too big not too small and I was stuffed after eating the fries - which were also delicious! I don't like coleslaw so that was sort of a... More

A true drive in but we chose to eat in. Floor was dirty and you order by a phone at your table (phone seems unsanitary to me). the Double Sumburger & turkey club were excellent.

A Chillicothe institution, Sumburger has been one of my personal favorites for twenty years!!! Where else can you get "live carhops" if you're outside ...oh, and order via "telephone" inside or out. And well, the burger-sauce makes it some burger...oh, Sumburger!!!

Really? Fries are yucky crinkle fries. Burger bun was way bigger than the burger. Burger nothing special. Seemed premade frozen from sisco. Smudge of shredded head lettuce. And sauce. Ok it was good. Target spice like with maybe a smudge of catsup. Onion rings were ok. I will give them a heads up for crushed ice. Next trip I will... More
