This is a must stop when we are in the area. Open air on 301 so you can watch traffic go by. They offer cold beer, soda and milkshakes. Their burgers are classic drive in style on soft buns with whatever toppings you might like. All served in paper boats and wrapped in paper. They have great onion rings and... More

We were here for a late lunch. I had the cheeseburger with fries and my wife ordered a chili cheese dog. My wife liked her chili cheese dog. I felt the burger was okay but not great. It was served on a fresh bun with fresh lettuce and tomato. The fries were nice and crispy so plus for that. All... More

Conveniently located down the street from the stadium, this was an excellent choice after the game. The food was hot fresh and delicious and the shakes were amazing.

The diner is open from seven in the a.m. until nine in the p.m. The menu is what one would expect of a diner...basically limited to two sides of a four by eleven inch card. It's simple...but exceptionally tasty. I've eaten here a couple of times while transiting 301, and enjoyed each meal. I've had their burgers, hot dogs, fries,... More

We panned this restaurant last year with a well-deserved 2-star review. It was chaotic, stressful, the orders were all wrong, and what food we received was awful, across the line. We gave it one more try this year and actually had a very nice meal. The bossy waitress wasn't here, it wasn't jam-packed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the burgers and... More

A great throwback to the iconic 50's diner. Open air seating (covered) with great burgers, dogs, shakes, fries, onion rings and more. A must to try it out😎👍

Iconic Drive-in located in North Sarasota. Famous for their awesome burgers, does onion rings and shakes. Beautiful cool sunny day to enjoy lunch.

This is a great 50's style diner with an outdoor element, yet covered and protected from inclement weather. We've often visited this restaurant when vacationing in Sarasota. It can't be beat. The prices are noteworthy (affordable) and the food is plentiful. We generally leave with leftovers. Two people could probably split a dinner. Very filling, good service, great food.

Thank Carla K
