Review of Big Jim's Drive-In

Big Jim's Drive-In
Ranked #5 of 74 Restaurants in The Dalles
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 5 - USD 20
Cuisines: Fast food
Description: Celebrating 50 Years It’s not just a slogan at Big Jim’s Drive-In located in The Dalles, Oregon. Dedication and consistency is what we value and want to serve our customers the best food possible in a relaxed, clean atmosphere. We’re GOOD food, NOT fast food. We never cook our burgers ahead of time. We make our own dressing for the burgers, tartar sauce, fry sauce and our own recipe for chili. We still make those old-fashioned milk shakes, Banana Splits and Sundaes. Our Waffle Cones are a big hit with one of our 16 flavors of UMPQUA brand hard ice cream in them. Try one of our 5 FRESH FRUIT milk shakes or Smoothies. Big Jim's burgers made with love.

This place makes a huge hamburger that is out of this world. They also make the best onion rings I have ever had. This is a must place to eat if your ever in the area.

My daughter Ashley andI were craving ice-cream on this lovely Spring day. Big Jim's is our favorite spot! Even the junior cones are huge and the flavors are the best! We might come back for burgers or their fish n chips for dinner.

I always enjoy the burgers, the hard ice cream is wonderful. Service is very good. It's somewhat of a challenge to get a non-seeded bun but they do it

If you want a true burger joint experience, this is the place. With real ice cream, they make the best shakes. They also have the best French fries around. Crispy outside, soft inside. Great place

Big Jim's hit the spot. Hamburgers are large and plenty of lettuce, tomato and onions. The fries were perfect, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. We had a Maplenut malt, my husband sucked it down like a bee to honey.
