Reviews for Carlson's Drive In

quick stop, excellent service! Chicago Dog was spot on. The fried mushrooms were tasty (no dipping sauce needed), perfectly fried and not greasy. Root beer was cold and refreshing (get the Float). only knock is that the float was not soft serve. when I'm back in the area I will be going again!

Good old fashioned drive in! I thought the building looked kept up with compared to how run down some drive ins are. There’s some picnic benches to sit outside otherwise a large parking lot if you want to eat in your car. The service was very fast and waitress was great. We had root beer served in a chilled mug, chili cheese dog, hot ham and cheese, and mozzarella sticks. All the food was good, nothing amazing and the prices were very fair.

This is always a nice solid place to stop at. Chicago style dogs are great, I love so much on the menu and their root beer is a must try. Nice the offer the option to pay with cash or card. Enjoy staying in your car and being served or sitting at the picnic tables.
