Called in an order. It was ready when I drove by the pick up window what could be easier! If you like a good ol cheeseburger and fries, you have to go here. Reasonable prices, great friendly service and fabulous food. Love this place!

All of the food especially the Lotta Burger. The food is a bit on the high end price wise but for what you get it is worth it. I moved to Mount Holly, in 1962 and have enjoyed many meals from here.

My fiancee took me here recently for lunch. It's nothing fancy, but you will find the drive-in style food that is oh so good. I got a bacon cheeseburger with tots and they were very yummy. I've not tried anything other than their burgers. This...More

Lotta Burger is the best burger in town, always order it with a side of crispy tater tots. Play retro 50's music so definitely has the old time drive in feel.

Don't go to the Brightstar expecting to find gourmet burgers or cosmopolitan fare. It is what it is, a reboot of an old style drive-in. I don't know when it first opened,but I cruised the drive-in while in high school in the early 70's. It...More
