We stopped here after a day at Panama Rocks and then Chatauqua--fun little place, great burgers. A bit pricey ($78 for five of us!), but the food was excellent, and the service very quick and friendly.

Very fun, simple, seasonal place! I think it's a must visit in the summer time. Waitresses on roller skates, 50s music playing, and old car seats to sit on. Large menu with a variety of burgers, sandwiches, and milkshakes. Something for everyone. Many different types of fries to choose from-regular, waffle, curly, sweet potato. You really can't go wrong here!... More

An open air inexpensive restaurant where the waitress serve the tables wearing roller skates. The menu is mostly hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, and onion rings, but they do have salads. We had been warned about their large serving sizes so I asked if there was a smaller version of one of their burgers and they told me they had a... More

This place is a great throwback drive in. Kitschy decor and 50's style menu. Good dogs, fries and onion rings. Attentive wait staff. Fun place to stop in on the way to Chautauqua!

Came across this old fashioned drive in while looking up things to do near Chautauqua Lake. My youngest daughter wanted to sit in our car to be waited on but we were a little disappointed that the waitress on the roller skates didn't wait on us. We just went for ice cream but we will have to go back to... More

The Redline has a fun throwback location, and the food is not bad. My friend and I ordered hot dogs, fries, and onion rings. The fries are nothing special - "battered" style, generic, crispy, and fresh. The onion rings were okay - a little on the thick side so, while the outside was brown and crispy, the onions weren't completely... More

We had dinner there tonight after a long day site seeing. Great food and good service. The burgers are huge and the buns are so good! We wanted to try a milk shake but too full from dinner. Waitresses on roller skates and feels like a step back in time. We will eat here again the next time we are... More

Ordered onion rings that were mostly over cooked/burned. The onion rings had the skin on. Eating paper is not good at the price. Waitress was told about the over cooking, but did not make any remark. Other than that, the service was good. Shakes were above most in quality and price. Fun place to go. Might even try it again.
