Compared to other places in the area, I wish we would not have gone here. We should have left after pulling up and seeing hardly anything on the menu, but I was hungry, just needing a quick bite to hold me over before dinner. The hot dog was nothing special, along with the chili - there weren't any onions or mustard which is usually standard around here (in Michigan). The fries were ok, really thick cut and super hot, the milk shake was awful. Not mixed well, tasted like poor quality ice cream with chocolate sauce mixed in and just not good. Total came to almost $14.00. Before we even left we decided we wouldn't eat there again.

When my family is in Traverse City and we don't feel like subjecting ourselves to another fast food meal, we'll often times visit Don's Drive-In. I've only ever had three things there - a hamburger, chocolate shake and french fries. All three are wonderful!! The hamburgers are huge and juicy. The shake is so thick that you need a spoon. The fries are delightfully crispy! If you haven't been....get in there!!!

When visiting Traverse city last summer we ended up eating here 3 times! We couldn't keep away from the best shakes and malts and hamburgers we've ever had. So much for the diet, but what better way to go!?!

This is a small drive in that feels like you stepped back in time. Needless to say most drive in's are a thing of the past, but this one is right across from the Traverse Bay - great location. They have the BEST milkshakes, very thick and rich. They have all the other regular food items, but they are known for their shakes. Affordable prices as well.

There is NOTHING like the taste of a burger and fries from Don's Drive-In. It's just good "old-fashioned" burgers like they used to make them (none of this fast-food substitutes). There milk shakes are also incredible. It's a great place to take the family or to take a group of kids for a birthday party.

PROS: Great atmosphere, great food
CONS:

Every year my family and I take our annual trip to Traverse City. It's a vacation so there isn't much that we plan on doing outside of lounging on the beach. However, it is an absolute must that we visit Don's Drive-In! The resturant has a warm, welcoming fun enviroment. All off the staff are unique characters that help add to the charm. Their shakes and burgers are to die for! You definitely get your money's worth in the portion sizes. There is plenty of parking, but don't wait until you are starving. Don's is a popular place with both tourists and locals. There is limited seating so waiting can occur. The food is worth the wait!!
