Probably the best old fashioned drive-in in the state. Try their classic potato boats for something different.

When you're in Norman you have to stop by and get a sprittle (Sprite with skittles) or create your own slush with candy mix-ins. Make sure you get a fat straw too. Don't expect the fastest service, but it's worth the wait

Sort of a throw back fast food drive in. Great selection of slushes and shakes. I love the corn dogs. Burgers are good too. I always stop on the way home after Sooner games and get some corn dogs for the trip home. Never been...More

Used to love this place when I was younger but to be honest I'm leery of eating here. The place looks a little run down. A face-lift would help them a lot. If the outside appearance of a restaurant isn't kept up it always makes...More
