Stopped by McKean's when driving through to Seattle. Pretty easy off the highway and slow drive through town and right back onto the freeway at the other end. Great burger, fries, onion rings and shakes!

This classic style Drive Inn was an unexpected hole in the wall. I had a large Blackberry Shake. Mm mm, Mmm Good. The Double cheese I had was loaded with home town flavor.. I highly recommend it. Skip the national chains and eat here

Was recommended I go to Mckean's for burgers. Sadly disappointed in the fried mushrooms (mushy, not cooked long enough) & fries. Burgers were just okay. I did however love the wild cherry shake. Not a bad burger joint, but keep expectations low.
