I didn't get the coney but others in my party did and they loved it. I got the long dog with ketchup, mustard and onions. The cheese fries were great as well!!

It was very busy when we arrived. We ate in the car because the tables were all taken. A waitress came right away. The wait did not seem long and the food was nice and hot. My husband really loved the coneys. I had the tenderloin and onion rings and enjoyed them both.

I go here a couple times a month. Great drive in food. Tenderloins are fantastic. The kids love going too and sitting at the tables outside.

This is an old-school PaleoFifties drive-in restaurant. The service is slow, but that's authentic, too, probably a survival from bygone days when people wanted to take their time and chat during their meals. My sandwich was average, but the lemon shake-up was very good. It's friendly here. Worth a trip to show your kids how you used to socialize before... More

This is one of my cousin's favorite places to eat in Washington. I tried the Coney's for the first time and they were good.

It's nostalgic. In a country where we tear down the old and always build new, places like this can be a refreshing spot. A simple drive in with food like coney dogs, burgers, tenderloins, fries, onion rings, ice cream, etc... Sure it's worth a visit when you come to Washington.

This is the fun and classic drive-in that you would expect in a mid west town. The place is only open when the weather allows, so spring, summer and early fall. The food is exactly what you would expect from a drive in: burgers, corn dogs, hot dogs and cheese covered fries. My favorite touch is the frosted mugs, it... More

We stumbled across this little place, just before they close for the season, and we had lunch. We have had pretty good with these old drive in's and this was excellent! It was started in 1951 so it is the same age as us. Food was good and quick, and our server went out of her way to make us... More

We absolutely love the arrival of summer around here, because Mason's is open! They have the best coneys and the rootbeer is delicious!

Very few old school drive-ins still exist... and this is one of them. They been car hopping rootbeer, foot long coney's & Tots since 1991. Dont forget to ask for your Rootbeer in a frosted mug. Oh yea and they're rootbeer floats are killer!
