It is about the same as McDonald's, they are smaller cheeseburgers like dollar menu burgers. The service is good and that they are a local burger joint is nice too. The flying burger is just a burger with no crust like a crustibles pb&j just...More

It could be easy to miss on the menu but you can order your burger "flying" which means it's encased in bread instead of on a bun - sort of like an Uncrustable but with a burger in the middle. Tots are good. Nothing but...More

To say or think that this is a cute retro fast food place would be incorrect and a disservice. The King's Hat and their "flying saucer burger" and old time drinks are not retro, they are originsl. The place hasb't changed in the numerous decades...More

I would never waste any time rating a fast food restaurant. Don't be fooled by the lack of formality with this place. It's what burger drive ins used to be before the industrialization of food began. They have one location and one location only. Great...More

This is a drive in with a small parking spot. Hard to get to on some days as they get very busy and the line backs up way down the street. The meals are very good and they give a lot of fries when you...More

I lived in Montana for years and just found out about this gem of a drive in a few years ago. Now we go here several times while visiting from Phoenix. The fries are made fresh from potatoes and cooked to perfection. Compliment these with...More
