“The Hut Drive In”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

"THE HUT" Drive-in has been around for at least 35 years...A little "A" frame on the edge of Town....
The food is right out of the "Old Days" of car Drive-In's... Old fashioned flavored Hamburgers, and perfectly done French Fries...You might have to wait 10 minutes for your lunch, because it's ALL made from "Scratch"... Which is reflected in how good everything tastes when you get it! And you don't have to "sell the Farm" for a meal! It's all fairly priced...

Their Soft Ice Cream Cones are totally addictive! We stop there when we are in Town!
Plus there's a Picnic Table in the area to sit and hang out with "the locals"...

“A "Tradition" Stop”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Great burgers and pretty standard prices. You get to sit outside and enjoy the weather (watch the wasps, they seem to like it here too!). Don't mind the odd looking tree, or what is left of it - it used to be a grand looking thing, now it is just odd looking.

“Burgers and Shakes for All”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is a typical 60's drive in. It has a wide range of cholesterol enhanced and greasy food which happens to taste very good while crippling one's health. Service is somewhat slow and often brusque. The prices are about average. Shakes are thick and creamy. There are some tables outside where one can eat and the poutine is very good. There is no inside dining.

“Not as good as it use to be”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Been Going to Nakusp for years. The hut has always been one of the place. I miss the big tree that use to be alive in front of it. It use to have different owners before the current ones. The last owners seemd to care about the food a little better and less about making money. But the food is still not bad nice freshly made still which is better then most chain restaurants.

“Classic small town drive in”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Good fast service, friendly atmosphere and good burgers and onion rings. Close to the lake so you could take your food with you and sit at picnic tables at the beach. Didn't like the wasps was my only complaint!
