While visiting family in Bellingham this last weekend I said I wanted burgers on Friday night after we rolled into town. My niece suggested Boomer's Drive In, stating "These are the best burgers you will ever have." She was absolutely correct. This place was PACKED!! Even though you don't expect great service with walk up ordering, not so here. We... More

Whenever we are in Bellingham I LOVE to go to Boomer's. Great burger and the Waffle Fries are amazing. I always order the "dipping sauce" for the fries. Yesterday was our most recent visit and it's still one of my favourite places. Very good prices too. A Boomer Burger, which has cheese is only $3.69.

My family of 8 enjoyed the burgers and particularly the milk shakes. Prices were very good as well. Liked the 50's atmosphere. You can eat in your car or inside. The waiters come right to your car. Very cool.

Boomer's Drive-In was yet another success stories of using Trip Advisor ratings to choose between restaurants. I had two from which to choose. Boomer's in Bellingham versus Fidalgo's in Anacortes. By average rating, Boomer's won, and I'm glad it did. Burgers, chicken sandwiches, waffle fries, and hard ice cram shakes. All well above average and at reasonable price points. I... More

I love old school drive-ins and this one is one of the better ones I've been to. I could guzzle their milk shakes until diabetes kills me and the burgers, fries, etc are all awesome as well Totally worth the time to check this place out if you want the classic drive in experience!

It looks like an old-fashioned drive-in. They were busy on a Thursday night. We had burger combo #1, which comes with waffle fries and a "hard ice cream shake". The burger was a good size and flavor, the fries were good, and the shake was really a nice treat, not like the "shake" that all the fast-food chains have which... More

I've heard so much about this place I finally had to try it so I took my son there yesterday. I don't get it. The food was completely uninteresting. The burger patty on my Boomer Burger was so small and flat, it could have come from a McDonald's dollar menu cheeseburger. The "special sauce" was basically just mayo. No seasoning... More

A fun place to go with great food and atmosphere. It appears to be popular with the locals, college students and travelers. The prices are reasonable.

Stopped for gas and saw this 50's resturaunt. It was a great pick for dinner. Great food selection. Prices were very reasonable. Would defiantly recommend to anyone on a budget. Restrooms left a little to be desired. An quick clean and a fresh paint job would go a long way.

Boomer’s Drive-In – Voted the Best Burger in Bellingham again & again!Great Food | Great Price | Great FunBoomer’s great food has been a local family favorite for decades. Our customers have enjoyed the same great menu of gourmet Boomers Burgers, world-famous waffle fries, real hard ice cream milkshakes, yummy hot dogs, fresh salads and old-fashion car hop service for years.Serving families in Bellingham since 1989, Boomer’s Drive-In has become a local icon. People who enjoyed Boomers as a child are now bringing their kids and grand kids to enjoy the same great food. Little about Boomers has changed over the years and we strive to keep it that way.
