Had dinner here with family and none of us liked our food - my white dog was "mushy", my mom said the grilled cheese sandwich made her sick, my aunt's chicken fingers were somehow both dry and greasy and my other aunt liked her fried bologna but said it was also greasy. The curly fries were probably the best part... More

Good drive in type restaurant with great burgers and fries, etc., but their Wow Cow keeps me going there. It is a frozen dessert with very low calories, hard to find.

I've been coming to Paulter's for 35 years. It is great place for ice cream in the summer. They also have hot dogs, burgers and sandwiches and a small play area for kids outside. I like the frozen custard and lemon ice. For food, the beef on weck and chicken fingers are really good.

We have been here many times. Polite and helpful young staff, and a wide selection of grilled foods and ice cream treats. Plenty of places to sit indoors or out, and a playground for the kids. Reasonable prices. Great cruise night on Tuesday.

Pautler's is a great place for lunch/dinner and especially ice cream. The playset is also a great feature to let the kids play while you eat. Pautlers is a must in the spring summer months in the East Amherst/Clarence area!

Pautler's is a great little place for the family or anyone to grab a bite to eat or an ice cream. They have classic car night on Tuesdays in the summer.

For dinner we went to Pautler’s Drive-In on Transit in East Amherst, New York as we have dined at Pautler’s Drive-In many times in the past and have never been disappointed. On this particular evening it was very sunny out, and with it being mid-September knowing that a limited number of sunny-warm evenings were left we didn’t think twice about... More
