“Homemade Fast Food-Unique”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I enjoy eating at King's Hat. Their food is consistent and homemade. Their fries are among the best. Feel fortunate to have this family-run drive-in in our town.

“Always awesome”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

This place is always awesome. Fresh food put down when you order and the prices are pretty good too. If you want a great greasy burger, this is the place to go.

“Nostalgia”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

My gramps used to take me through the Kings Hat in the 60's in his old pick up so I have to give it a 10. Such a busy place and the first old style drive through in Billings. Food is good and greasy and yummy and a great value. I miss it!

“Nearly perfect for what it is!”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

I've love'd going to the King's Hat for as long as I can remember. I moved from Billings nearly 20 years ago but I still have family and friends in Billings. Each time I return to Billings I make it a point to stop at the King's Hat and grab a few flying saucer burgers. The King's Hat is a simple little drive in that's been there since the 40's. I really appreciate the little place for what it is. It's not a chain fast food joint, it's a mom and pop type of establisment. It's rough around the edges (at least it was when I was there) and that, to me, is part of what makes it special. I think the food is pretty good, but as another review said the line for the drive thru can be really long = that means there's something good here!

What is it about the flying saucer burgers? They're not that great, but they're awesome at the same time. It's a 25 cent hamburger patty with the fixings of your choice, in between what seems to be two pieces of sandwich bread. The bread is sealed all the way around in a round flying saucer shape by some kind of panini/waffle contraption that hasn't been made in 50 years. I feel like a kid when I eat one these.

Some people might not be able to appreciate the taste of history that the King's Hat serves up. It's a rustic feel with real food - It's not an automated every-burger-is-identicle like McD's or Burger King. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

I really hope that this place never changes.
