Very over priced and not worth it. Burgers are small and fries are soggy. Was hoping for something a lot better but was sadly disappointed. The staff also seemed a bit annoyed they had to work there. Since this is the only main burger and fry place in town, it should be amazing! Not.

Pulled in to order food and after waiting 5 minutes for someone to call back to take our order we realized the call button didn't work at the ordering station. We then proceeded to go inside to order our food which took another 10 minutes just to order. Already irritated, we finally received our food and let me tell ya,... More

I hit this spot every time I pass through town. They serve great burgers, fish sandwiches, fish and chips, and I love the fries. Nice retro feel.

Place looks like a dive, what with nonfunctional drive in stations, and an interior that seriously needs an update. But the food is so good! The staff are very friendly. There is a large selection on their menu, and service is quick. Will be back!

Lived here for 15 years and never stopped, but got curious. Old fashion building with "car hop" service or sit inside service. The building is an old A&W root beer business. Got the Alaskan Halibut with fries, garlic bread and a bowl of Ivar's clam chowder. The service was fast, food hot and delicious! Glad I stopped.

The service was a little slow the day we stopped for lunch. The burger and fries were OK for fast food.

When I'm in the area of Annacortes, WA I always make time for the Fidalgo Drive Inn. I really enjoy several of their offerings including the Dungeness Crab sandwich, Angus Swiss burger or the Tillamook Bacon Cheddar burger. The side I usually choose is the deep fried mushrooms but once in awhile I'll get the tater tots. The staff always... More

We've eaten at this place several times. One time we were passing by and they were advertising their peach milkshakes. They are good! The food is also good. Although it's mainly a burger place, the fish and chips are good as well. And we always include the peach shake!

Not much healthy food here but it's s local establishment and if you are looking for fried food this is the place on the main drag. It's an old place not much updating and it's probably been here for decades and it looks it. You can pull up and order outside or go in. It's very small inside. The staff... More
