Great inexpensive stop on the river. Get your burger all the way (w/slaw) - you won't regret it. Wish my chocolate shake was a little more chocolaty, but it was still good. I will definitely be back. Drive-in and eat in the car/take-out; enter on the right to order at the counter and dine in or take-out; enter on the... More

One of the WORST diner experiences ever! 3 of 4 orders were wrong...icing on the cake...the baked beans must have been opened out of the can and poured directly on the plate!!! Awful awful awful!

Amazing drive in place to eat. Best hamburgers around and beautiful scenery of the river next to the building. A must stop every time I come through Bryson City.

We come up to Bryson often and usually make at least one trip to Nabers for hamburgers, hotdogs, onion rings, chocolate shake... Your typical drive in food. It has always been consistent and satisfying the guilty pleasure drive in food. We often go after hiking and like sitting in our car down by the river. Remember cash only...

Have driven by many times. Always seems full. Stopped in and ordered a few burgers and fries. Service was friendly. Food was pretty tasty. A decently good burger. Will return.

Nothing fancy, just an old style drive in by the river, the food was good and service was quick. I got a cheeseburger and it was good.

Will not return! Terrible service and food. Ordered fried chicken which was way over cooked and one of the four pieces was nothing but skin and bone (no meat!), when we brought it to the server's attention "that's the way it is". Well not for us! Waste of money.

Had a burger and cole slaw here. Nothing really to write home about -- the premises are clean and the food was average. It was cool to be served at your car -- so it was a blast from that particular past. Otherwise, I didn't find anything special about the food.
