Hi-Lite Drive In, is great. Thick tasty shakes and delicious food, I had a chocolate peanut butter shake yum yum, and a sloppy joe that took me back. Great! It's like a old fashion diner that reminds me of when I was young. You drive up, a person comes out and waits on you. They take your order, place your... More

Not as good as it was years ago but the staff is eager to PLEASE. The food and shakes are good. Only open during the summer giving you a flashback to the 50's and 60's.

Service on deck was no where to be found the day we were there. They serviced the drive ups, & chatted inside but never checked the deck. I will not go in search of a server. so we left after being ignored for about 15 minutes.

The food is Ok. The homemade root beer is very good. Malts are excellent. Servers walk to your car to take orders and deliver food on a tray that fits on the window of your car. Friendly and quick service. Some outside seating. None inside. Well behaved pets are allowed in the outside eating area.

When the weather changes it brings out the open sign at the H-Lite. You can hear the locals say "have you been to Hi-Lite yet this year?" Love their peanut butter/hot fudge malt!!!

I love the Hi-Lite. Their burger are so good, make sure you get them with the potato dippers. They also serve homemade shakes and root beer, both are a good complement to your meal. They run on the pricier side but once you taste the freshly made patty you will understand why. There is often a long wait and service... More

I've always had great service and delicious food. The servers are very friendly. The food is made fresh when you order. Eat there many times during the summer.

We went there for lunch and the service was slow. Our server seemed as if this was a court ordered service she had to fulfill vs liking her job and wanting to be there. We had to pay before touching our food, we were not given a receipt, and to top it off, my significant other left her phone on... More
