We often phone while driving ( passenger dials !) ahead to the hope drive in on our trips to our cabin in the interior, and order a pick up order and it is the high point of the road trip . The burgers, sandwiches, and excellent fries are served with a friendly attitude . Mike shakes are also excellent .... More

We pulled into the Hope Drive-In on Saturday Nov 5 and was surprised to see the Open sign on, but overwhelmed knowing we would be one of the last customers to eat in this, my favorite restaurant when I travel between Vancouver and Kamloops. I have always as has my family and friends, have left Vancouver with the intention to... More

Very busy restaurant and the service is outstanding, polite, friendly, fast and make you feel like family. Very clean. Home cooked food at it's best. Taste and fresh. If you like great food and impeccable service this is the place for you. Prices are very reasonable. You might have to wait for a table, but you won't regret it.

If you love this place and want to get in one last time . this is it.. This famous place is closing its doors as the owners are retiring. It may switch hands but noone knows at this point. The food was always delicious, my last meal was excellent. the staff super friendly.

I usually come in for breakfast but it ended up being an early lunch. Ordered a clubhouse and fries. The clubhouse was good but the fries looked anemic. White in color and not much crispness or flavor. Not good for a diner drive in. Service also seems to have gone down. Checked on only once and no drink refills ever... More

Stopped here on the way to the Okanagan for a wine tasting weekend. What can I say except the breakfast was hearty, fresh, and delicious, the coffee decent, and the service very friendly. We stopped on the way home, and we had salad and fresh fruit for a snack, and it was bright, fresh and so tasty. I didn't have... More

We live in Mission and we drive out to Hope around once a month to come to this restaurant. Our last trip out this way did not disappoint! There was 4 of us and our 2 year son. Not one complaint was heard at our table. The food is always really good and the service is great as well. Can't... More
