Heard lots about this place and warned about long lines. Showed up for lunch and was first in line! Winner winner chicken dinner! Huge inside seating area. Can't believe it could ever be that full. Ordered the "Big Miner Burger" with onion rings. Burger was pretty big and on a ginormous bun. I like a bit more meat to bun... More

Order one miner burger and have them cut it in half. one order of french fries will serve both of you and order shakes or pop to wash the food down. This is not a meal you will want to eat after 5 pm unless you are ready to go to bed for the night. Lots of food and a... More

We weren't planning on stopping & certainly not sitting down to eat late on a Sunday. Just drive'n thru & the crew got hungry! Honestly the plan was to grab something at one of the chains & jump back on the freeway but we saw the miners sign & decided to walk in to get it to go since the... More

Stopped in on a Sunday night late - 10:30 maybe. We were traveling and just wanted something quick. Really didn't expect to find any place open, so we were very happy that they were, and the burger and fries we had were amazing. Made one mistake, should have ordered 1 and split it. Neither my wife or I ate more... More

Had the miner burger. It is large but still just a frozen patty. Ours was warm and not hot. Onion rings were good. This place is more hype than quality and I am sure Yakima has better.

Dropped in on a Sunday afternoon while driving through. We each had a burger and split an order of fries (regular size) and a regular sized shake. The quality of the food was good, and it tasted as you would expect, but the portions were out-of-control huge. This place is a dream for someone who likes to pack their guts... More

We have been going there for years. It is always busy, but quick service. Love the burgers. We always split one, because they are large. French fries are great. They have a nice grassy area outside to enjoy the tasty burger.

We randomly stopped by Miners Drive In while looking for a place to get gas on our way through the area. The old diner caught our attention and we just had to stop and give it a try. Their menu is huge and they are popular. There were no less than four cashiers waiting to take our order as we... More
