Reviews for Carlson's Drive In

Got there before they closed for the season. Love this place. Love the nostalgic of it too. Awesome food and service. Continue whatever it is that keeps people coming back year after year. Kudos to the owners and staff. Already looking forward to the opening of 2022..

Went to Carlsons with the fam, my kids have never been to a drive in hot dog stand before. They weren't interested in staying in the car (that's the whole experience!). Our server was great, fast and friendly. The kids both ordered corn dogs, my mother and I ordered burgers, and my father ordered chili cheese dogs. We also ordered fried cauliflower, and fries. The corn dogs looked perfectly cooked, but the batter inside was raw. The burgers were very thin- and not in a good full review
I'm 68 years old. I've been a customer since I was around 14. Carlson's is always appealing and no one will ever have a chili cheese dog with onions & mustard as delicious! And a very tasty hamburger! I'm sure the rest of their menu is just as good but this is what I've always been addicted to. Oh! And ti wash it down with their refreshing lemonade ?....Just can't beat it! Never had a better carhop either! They get so busy, I don't know how they keep up so I'm always happy full review
