The Eagle Drive-In has unique appetizers, great gourmet burgers and other amazing entrees. My favorite order is Joplin's Spiciest. A Jalapeno Cheddar Skirt, Black Bean Corn Salsa, and Sriracha sauce burger with hand cut fries. Speaking of Jalapeno's, my wife really enjoys the Jalapeno Margarita.

I am super, super picky when it comes to fries and they are fantastic at the Eagle Drive-In. Thin, crispy, salty, skin-on, and a little greasy. I ate mine with a delicious side of garlic aioli. The burger was quite good too. Charred on the...More

We had chili cheeseburgers with chili cheese fries. The burger was ok. The chili has huge chunks of steak and tomatoes, definitely not what I think of as chili. The garlic aoli had a very unique taste. Definitely a place for the eclectic. Lamb burgers...More
