I was driving on my way home from the office when I found Square-Boy Drive-In. It's actually my third time to visit this restaurant and I never left disappointed. I can honestly say that the food they serve here was very delish and the price...More

Doesn't look great when you walk in but the home made burgers were fantastic. $6 for a burger was great value. Recommend!

Great place for charcoal burgers, French fries w/gravy, onion rings. Grew up in the area, and always a great place to have burger and fries. Onion rings, gravy are great additions. Like Harvey's, you can select toppings for burgers. Food is exactly how I remembered...More
