My family lives in Mattoon so every time I visit we always go by here at least twice. The soft serve ice cream is delicious. The food is a good deal and it's local

The food is as good as any fast food place. I went thur the drive in. It is narrow and the shrubby hits the car.

As always, great burgers but please, please, please go back to your shaved onions on your burgers! Chopped onions don't fit in the original Burger King double cheeseburgers! 😝

This place has been here for YEARS, but I had just rarely been in the mood for a hamburger while in Mattoon. This particular day, it was lunch and we were not overly hungry. We stopped in and placed our orders at the window. When our number was called we got our food. It was decent, nothing to rave about,... More

Been going to this Burger King for years. Food is always good, ice cream even better. New owners have done a nice job of sprucing up the place, without changing the food. Free refills on drinks is also a nice change from the previous owners who charged for refills. Nothing like the chain restaurant Burger King, won't find a whopper,... More

Good for a quick family meal and ice cream. The new owner has fixed up this original Burger King to make it a fun place to eat and spend time with the family and friends.

Traditional family run burger restaurant. Renovated late 2015---will please some, but many liked the old worn ambiance. Still the same great food--terrific daily deals. Only about 10 minutes from the i-57 exit, avoid the chains and come to this spot. Fortunately, I have a work colleague sharing my like of non-chain, great deal restaurants, and this is where we meet... More

My family and I come here often, but recently it has had several changes made. I was nervous at first that the restaurant would lose its charm and originality. I could not have been more wrong! The new interior is clean and updated with a vintage diner look. The food is better than ever. Since all food is cooked to... More
