“Burger is Quite the Bargain”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

Stopped for a burger and hot dog with a malt chaser. Burger was very tasty and quite generous for the price. Malt was just OK.

“Average old drive in.”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

I don't think the menu has changed in 20 years. Fried average food.

“Cardinal Drive In”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Love to go to Cardinal. When I was pregnant I would buy the #2 cheeseburger and tater tots. Still makes me smile. Also have great homemade milkshakes.

“It Is What It Is”
Reviewed 19 May 2012 via mobile

Yuuup! It is an old fashioned drive in. A Sonic it ain't but a nostalgic place where you can get a halfway decent burger and fries for $6. We had the bacon burger and while ertainly not gourmet neither was it that bad. The fries were not greasy at all. There was even a car show/rally with vintage cars. All in all not bad!

“A throw-back Drive-In”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

This is a old-timey drive-in restaurant that serves reasonably good food at good prices (not too expensive). I have mostly had their burgers, specials, and milk shakes. All were quite good, though not real fancy. The decor inside reflects the outside decor: stuck in the 50/60s (a good thing). I have never had a bad or tasteless meal there - instead I have had well-prepared and flavorful burgers that I would come back for, repeatedly. Certainly better than the fast food chain burgers...
