“Real food!”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

You get a real tomato, a slice of onion, and lettuce on your hamburger. A pickle slice is alongside. My hubby loves the fish and chips. Chips can be curly fries, regular fries, onion rings or a combination. Their malts and milkshakes are exceptional--and they don't mind if you ask for extra chocolate!

“Soft serve delight!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012 via mobile

If you are traveling through Collbran Co this is a must stop. Serving sizes are gigantic. The cost is low and the ice cream is creamy and delicious

Wish we lived in the area so we could eat there more often. Love the ice cream combinations and lots of great food to choose from.

“Not a true drive-in, but a great diner”
Reviewed 6 November 2010

This may have been a drive-in at one time but now is just a small diner that does a huge business. Lots of outdoor seating so if the weather is fine grab a picnic table out back and enjoy the scenery. The food is so good, service with a smile and the price is right. I get a corn dog every time but their foot long hot dogs really are a foot long and look very tempting. Ice cream treats are a big seller since this is a mountain area and lots of people stop by on their way home from hiking, fishing, camping, etc.
