When we first moved to Cleveland in 1978 we met Emory and Ruby Bryant, owners of the Rebel drive-in. We went to church with them and became good friends. Emory told me on more than one occasion that he was not going to have the restaurant open on Sundays even though other restaurant owners told him he couldn't 'make it' if he missed out on Sunday business. Emory proved them wrong. Not only is the Rebel still up and running (managed by Emory and Ruby's children now), it's continuing to provide the 3 key elements of a successful restaurant...Quality, Service and Value.

The food is typical drive-in fare, along with some 'meat-and-three' specials during lunch service. This is a real 'comfort food' destination. It's a popular spot for Breakfast and the biscuits and gravy is the #1 pick of early-morning patrons. Their famous "Lotta Burger" has been a Cleveland favorite for many decades and easily is the #1 lunch choice.

The serving staff are friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable and won't dent your budget if you bring the whole family. Overall, this is a nice, family-type place to enjoy a good meal.

They're only open for Breakfast and Lunch (closes at 2 pm), so don't miss out on a visit to the Rebel. (Yes, it's still closed on Sunday's and, no, it's no longer a real 'drive-in'...you'll have to get out of your car and go in!!)

My son and myself make it there for lunch on Saturdays..Remember they close at 2pm though. I always have their Lottaburger and Homemade Onion Rings. They have doubles, pattymelts and great chili. This is a hidden, local treasure of Cleveland that any visitor should stop by and try.This place beats all of the burger chains by far.
