Roe-Ann's has been serving generations of Emmett residents. It's the only survivor of the three drive-ins Emmett's Washington Avenue once boasted. I started bicycling there when I was in fifth grade in the early 1970s, switched to a car when I bought my first one at age 15 and learned you could drive over the sidewalk that separates the two...

I had never been to a drive in before. You order by phone. There is a great selection of hamburgers including a veggie burger. The shakes are thick and creamy and it hits the spot on a warm day. The onion rings are large and crunchy. Overall great food!

Roe Ann's is a classic drive-in that's been around since the '50s. Flipping flat top burgers, dogs and shakes, it's a reminder of where fast food started. This was my first visit and only had previous reviews to worth with. The group I was with all had burgers of different sizes and toppings. I enjoyed the BBQ burger with double... More

Roe Ann has been a part of my life since I could remember. From summer ice cream cones to the tasty wimpy burger - I love it all! I still get nostalgic when eating a slushie.

I love small town dives and this place is a favorite. The kids from Emmett are super nice, the food is awesome, and the shakes are to die for. Go Huckleberry all the way

The Double Cheeseburger is very good but a tad skimpy on the meat. The onion rings are some of the best I've ever eaten. Fresh onion, crispy coating and not overcooked. The service is great but the place is crowded, especially at lunch time, so be patient.

I love eating here, I've never been disappointed. Great burgers, love the Big Bob (it's a very big burger) and the jalapeño teazers. So yummy! Good prices. I like getting a caramel Dr. Pepper with extra EXTRA caramel, it's not on the menu but they'll make it for you no problem.

While staying with a friend in Emmett she treated me to dinner at Roe Ann's! The food was delicious, the wait wasn't long.

The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. I would classify this as similar to a deli, and in between a restaurant and a fast food drive in. It's much better than a normal drive-in.
