We've been waiting for 20 min for a single order and drink. Waitress keeps going to other chef Hicks's that came after us. She walks so slow as if in no hurry to get orders out to waiting customers.

Always go to Sumburger when I am in Chillicothe. Best hamburger ever. Fries are average. Not fond of the slaw but the hamburger is worth the trip. Love it.

Stopped by here for the first time in years. We love the method in which you order. We love how fresh the food is... $20 for three burgers and two sodas. Best reason to go here is it is unique.

Grabbed this for the second time coming home from hocking hills. Food is great and it's just a cool 50s vibe.

The food was delicious, but it took time to get our order. I would recommend coming here but don't be in a rush. We hate the hamburgers with their special sauce and onion rings.

This is a classic piece of Americana which brings memories of an age gone by. A functioning "Drive-In" where customers park their car under an awning, order from a 2-way intercom, and then dine in their car once their food is brought to them. There...More

This restaurant has been in Chillicothe for years-since the 50s. The outside is a drive-in, yes a real drive-in where they bring your food to you! The food is really good. They are known for their sumburgers and shakes, they are both delicious! Inside you...More
