A foot long dog, small onion rings, small coleslaw, small shake, cup of water, and a mushroom burger was almost nineteen bucks. Good shake. Horrid coleslaw. Rather greasy food. Nostalgia is nice, but this is a poor value proposition.

I was here after being out and about one afternoon. Stopped in with a few friends for a burger and sweet potato fries which were delicious. The service was quick and the waitress was friendly

Stopped there on Memorial Day not knowing they were closing early this could be the reason that my order was mediocre, we were the last ones there, ordered 2 chicken sandwiches and fries, got home and the chicken sandwiches were just grilled chicken breast on a bun, no mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato...nothing. One of the sandwiches looked like it wasn't... More

The food is not very good. The burgers can be rancid. Mold has been reported in different food items. Nothing is made from scratch. It is all frozen & could have been in the freezer for up to a year! Music options can be flat out offensive language not meant to attract families.

Classic drive in. Curb side service to your car door. Recommend cheese steak w/ hand cut fries. Can't miss..lunch or dinner. Each day of the week has its own special. Call ahead if you ate picking up. One of the few places that still have car hop service.

Yes, the food here is really great. There is nothing on the menu that is remotely close to being good for you. A visit to Chick Inn is really about the experience, though. I don't know of another nostalgic drive-in still in operation.

Part of going to the Chick-In is it's history. It's an Ypsi land mark. The food is good too. The Paul Bunyan burger is yummy.

This is where I met my wife 35 years ago today. She was the cook back then and probably had better food because she was cooking it. I will be going back today, which I do every year.
