While the food at Mays is average, the locale is perfect for those visiting Centralia on day trips. I went with 6 of the kids and we all had lunch and sundaes for $50 - that's the great part. The sundaes were good and larger than expected, but the rest was just standard. Everything we ordered was something you could... More

The food at Mays is pretty good and so is their ice cream. I personally think drive-in restaurants are pretty cool because it's almost like going back in time to when there were many drive-in restaurants around. But today there aren't nearly as many as far as I know but nonetheless this place not only has pretty good food but... More

I like this place for a lot of reasons. First, I visited there with two lovely ladies, one 99 and one, almost 90, And they gave me the complete history of the place. Second, my total for three sandwiches, fries and cokes around, was less than $20. Finally, the food was great. Give mays a try, you won't be dissapointed.

The food is good and consistent. They have great prices, awesome food, and a friendly environment. If you're in the area, stop on by and grab a quick meal and some ice cream

Great stop for a bite after the pioneer Cole tunnel visit! Nothing fancy just good food and great ice cream. Family friendly and something for everyone just like the old-fashioned drive-ins!

Out in Centralia, PA doing some hiking along the trails on 5/15/16. At the end of a 7.5 hour day, all in our group were tired, and hungry. Saw Mays on the way in, in the morning, so decided to stop by for a bite to eat! The fried chicken was well worth the wait. Delicious, crunchy skin. Not heavily... More

OK, we didn't get a meal but we were on our way home from vacation and hungry for ice cream. We remembered stopping at a place in Ashland many years ago that had good ice cream but couldn't remember the name or if it was still open. But thanks to a Smartphone in the car we found May's again and... More

may's is awesome. we always stop. The cole slaw is great. Baskets with burgers and FF is great tasting and nostalgic too. We love this place and so does everyone else. Always lots of folks here. In business over 50 years. Try it... you won't be disappointed. Pleasant people, old town feel, good food. Enjoy!
