Great malts and a decent selection of ice cream. But primarily a place for good burgers and sandwiches in the summer. Not too many tables inside but plenty of picnic tables outside in the nice weather. Love the fried mozzarella sticks; made with wonton wrap, not breaded, yum. Classic 50s décor, and classic car night on Thursdays in the summer.... More

My Dad and I both enjoyed Bacon Cheeseburgers with fried onions Super juicy on a fresh toasted bakery roll. The chocolate shake was a treat but regretted not order a Black Cow/ Root Beer Float when I saw one made in front of me with four scoops of vanilla ice cream. Great service sitting at the counter.

We do like their burgers. I have not found a better burger in the area. Nice shakes and malts also. We have been coming going here for at least the past 10 years.

This place is a classic diner, with the typical feel and ambiance of a 50's diner. The burgers, fries, onion rings, and all of the other fixings are pretty good. Definitely a Cedarburg staple.

We always love our food from Wayne's, but leave quite full. The buns for the burgers are what make it the best. Everyone enjoys the car show and the hula hoop contests.

This is the epitome of a great burger joint. Super great drive in. They even have Thursday night car night, where the lot is filled with hotrods. (Wednesday night is Corvette night.)

Do you desire to enjoy drive-in food from those ancient 50's and 60's. Look no further. Wayne's Drive Inn.

This is a great place to take the kids. An old-style drive-in atmosphere, without the drive-in experience. They have car-hops occasionally, but I'm not sure there is any set schedule. Tables are available inside and outside with counter service inside as well. Your typical drive-in menu with thin butter burgers, hot dogs, fries, and ice cream treats.

The Milwaukee area has, in my estimation, many over-hyped burger places. Some people love a Kopp's burger, while I think it is a big soft bun with no meat. Some love Sobelman's. I think it is a dried out burger on a mediocre bun made improved only because of the toppings. I wish their was a great fresh 1/2" think,... More
