This is a seasonal place, and it is one of the last car service diners. No roller skates, though!! They have kept true to their original foods. Hamburgers are home made and fries are fresh cut in their kitchens. Old timers and generations beyond enjoy...More

We never miss stopping at Mac's Drive-In for a hamburger and fries and a cold Pabst beer or root beer. It's like stepping back in time. Staff are friendly and swift. Price is right, too.

Very cute. But the food has much to be desired. Interesting that they are busy. It certainly isn't because the food is good.

I loved everything about this place. We got to stay in our car, protected from the rain, with food brought to us! And the food was tasty - great burger, crispy fries, and amazing root beer. Wish I lived closer so I could go here...More

Finally made it here. Place is a very cute little old school drive-in. Servers were friendly & patient. Ordered the fried chicken basket dinner (with fries & honey buns). Chicken was deep fried nicely but had ZERO seasoning which ruined it for me. Fries are...More
