This place is amazing! Simply THE BEST burgers you'll ever eat, hands down. And the fried mushrooms are excellent, too. Great food, great value, fast service and just a great experience all around. Do yourself a favor and visit the West Pier Drive-In.

My husband and I were looking for a lunch spot. This was off the beaten path and we were not disappointed. Great Burgers and the fried pickles were delicious. I will be going back next time I'm in the area.

I would have never stopped here without the Trip Advisor reviews because it doesn't look like much at first glance and is off the main drag but am so glad we did. We ordered 2 cheeseburgers, onion rings, and fried mushrooms. There was enough food,...More

This little place is humble in appearance and princely in the burgers it puts out. There are only about 8 seats inside at the counter, the rest of service being in your car. The place is always packed and with good reason. The burgers are...More

It's like a blast from the past. Turn on your car lights and a car hop comes out and serves you. Their burgers are to die for!
