This was a nice nostalgic restaurant with good food. Nothing to write home about but reminiscent of the old style "drive-in" restaurants from the 1940's or 1950's. Worth the stop.

All of the food was good here - salads, fries, grilled cheese, ice cream, fried mac and cheese, everything - but the burgers were the freshest, best burgers I've ever had. I have told everyone about how good they were. The. Best.

Stopped to visit the Pioneer Auto Museum and parked across from this local drive in. The food is excellent and the burgers are gigantic. Service is impeccable. So friendly and just plain nice. A must stop on the road to My Rushmore.

Good grass fed beef burgers, but very expensive. The patty is large and juicy. Fries like McDonalds. Very clean. Takes time since they cook each burger fresh.

Good food, nice staff and you can sit outside. If you come with the expectation of a fancy dinner you'll be disappointed bit if you want some stuff food on the road it's probably the best you can do on Murdo.

We had the $4.75 hamburger - it is excellent meat but is served plain. Need to tell them if want grilled onions etc. The toasted buns were a nice touch. The hamburger was huge - a third of a pound - you could definitely share...More

Positive. The Cafe is called GTO. The Drive in is "after" the Shell station & museum up the road on your right. Small place colored orange.
