Circle Drive In is a good fast food stop. They have the best rib eye steak sandwich you can get. Their hotdogs, fries and ice cream sundaes are good too. Give them a try

I absolutely adored this old-fashioned way of eating. Long time since I had eaten at a drive-in. I got the hamburger and fries. I usually don't like hamburgers, but this one was simply delicious. The prices were reasonable and the service was very good. I didn't sit in my vehicle long before a waitress came out and took my order.... More

A must if you are in Eden. The circle has a lot of history and is a great spot to get a hot dog and fries. They have a lot of different things on the menu and definitely stays busy! You can call in orders ahead to save some time.

Not my favorite place. Had heard lots about it, gave it a try but did not like it. Did enjoy the old time drive in feel and the chance to eat outside.

If you like hot dogs and French fries this is your place. It is a little drive inn and you feel like you are in the fifties. They refri the French fries when you order them and they come out hot and crispy. Hotdogs with chile is good with the fries.
