Fun menu and vibe. Food wasn’t cooked properly and we waited way too long. The wait staff was not organized well. We won’t be back.

I will admit the length of the wait is a bit too long. We were there when it wasn’t super busy, but waited almost 45 min. The food was fantastic! Great hamburger with all the condiments, perfect onion rings and love all the sauces.

Many burger options in Bend...none better than here. Cooked to order; fresh ingredients and over the top taste. Best in town.

At the base of Pilot Butte in Bend Or. this drive-in/café serves an 18 oz. burger, nearly 5 inches tall, that easily fed four. We ordered a small basket of fries and milkshakes (only two) which filled us up and maybe more. THIS IS JUST...More
