This place is so old, they needed to close it. I don't know if they are remolding it, or what. Drove by it the other day. I haven't eaten there in a long time. But they did have fab Cherry Cokes, and Vanilla Cokes. Me and my dad used to go there for lunch when I was a kid. Hopefully... More

I love non-chain, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, so I tried this drive-in that has managed to survive here. The service was immediate and friendly throughout the meal. I did have to leave my car, because it wasn't compatible with the genuine (and apparently old) drive-in trays they use. The food isn't extraordinary but it's entirely serviceable, mostly tasty although the fries were... More

I have been eating here since I was a child and had never been disappointed until a few weeks ago. The waitress couldn't even answer simple questions and when she failed to answer the questions, she proceeded to offer a different meal from what i wanted because she was familiar with that meal. I left without even ordering a meal... More

Food is home style with much of it cooked to order, so if you are in a hurry you might want to try elsewhere. Though if it's Sunday good luck with that. Plant City is old school... More

I'm a Plant City native, Parents, grandparents, generations... My mother had been eating here since SHE was young! The jumbo burger baskets are awesome. Nothing beats $5 for a huge burger & 2 sides. Vanilla or cherry Cokes make it great as well. Real drive in & eat in...not many left.

Good ole Drive-in feel. Dinning room is great. Friendly staff and good food. This business has been around for many years. Was a great place to go when I was a kid, teen and adult.

The prices are ok but the quality of the food is not the greatest. The servers could use a little more training in customer service as welll.
