Awesome milk shakes. Decent small town burger from old school burger drive up. Friendly high school age staff. A normal for residents.

Pretty much what you'd expect if you pulled up to a roadside drive through, nothing exceptional but totally edible.

No inside seating. Just a parking lot and the food you remember from high school. Great French fries and they offer tarter on the side. The delux cheeseburger will make you feel 20 years younger.

This is only a drive through, though you can walk up to order as I did (my trailer was too long for the drive through lane). There are picnic tables in the parking lot, but the rain this day kept us eating in the car. The burgers and fries are pretty typical drive-in fare, but the milk shakes are delicious.... More

You want a good tasting burger and fries? This place delivers. I like to eat the Everything Burger with Cheese, it has just the right amount of sauce and goodies..(they offer a Gluten Free option too) Great milkshakes with several flavors.. the only con is you have to eat in your car there is no place to go in and...

I have stopped a few times now at this drive thru and have been pleased with the food and service. The windows are a little high for a small car and the menu is too high to read, but no other than these 2 issues... I like it!

Locally famous for their hamburgers, we were a bit surprised by the almost $9.00 price tag. While the hamburgers were good, my hubby and I both said we could have had a nice dine in meal for what we paid for a couple of drive thru burgers and fries. We satisfied our curiosity, but won't be back.

After trying the new Gene's in Montesano and coming away unimpressed, I still find the best burgers in East County at Smitty's. Unpretentious and unchanged for many years, it remains the proverbial drive-thru burger joint on the west side of town. The staff is always pleasant and if the cars are lined-up (most of the time in the summer) they... More

Small drive-in, large selection, high prices. Very busy, can really only handle 2 cars at one time. Nothing special.

Driving through Elma I see this little place basically a drive up window. Inside this small building is a full size restaurant serving Burgers Hot Dogs and Ice Cream and a really pleasant, cheerful, attractive staff
