El's drive-in has THE best shrimp burgers, onion rings, hamburgers, etc. You drive up, a car hop comes up and takes your order! A blast from the past!!

I've been going to El's my whole life. Sometimes my whole family craves their shrimpburgers and off we go to fill up. However, something has changed. The menu is still steller and the service is great. The batter on the fried food is unchanged, and absolutely perfect. But everyone in my family who has been in the last few weeks reports the buns are falling apart in their hands when they eat their sandwiches. My poor mom had grease all over her pants and I had to open the driver's door to make sure I didn't spill all over me. Please fix this problem so you can go back to deserving your Excellent rating!

A friend recommended El's Drive In and when we arrived the parking lot was full with cars, trucks and trucks with boats we knew it was going to be good. The shrimp burger spared no shrimp, with coleslaw and ketchup, it was the best. And the onion rings were AWESOME. It will become a tradition for us anytime we're in Morehead City.
