After 10 years of driving to T.C. to mall shop we finally stopped at Don's - BIG MISTAKE. Every waitress I saw had on a filthy uniform, the fries were very ho-hum and cold to boot, and the burger was so-so. My husband was humoring me by stopping because I love drive-ins that look like they did when were were kids. OK, I'm a nostalgia buff. He immediately wanted to leave when we almost slipped on the grease when we walked in. Since my husband is diabetic we didn't try the shakes so I can't speak to whether they were any better than the food we did order.
dons drive in is a step into the past it rocks my sox lol it is a fun loving drive in with great food the food is a little pricey but well worth it and it is not a dump i will agree with hamburgerlover that shakes are 7 bucks but that is because they r huge and use a half gallon of ice cream and real fruit i love dons and they have fries by the carload that r the best ever i love all there food they rock!!!!
Have lived in TC for 27 years - been to Don's many, many times. The last few the service was less than good (really OLD, slow and unfriendly woman waiting tables) - it was dirty. Food was good but not as in the past. 50's atmosphere is unique and fun, though.
Don's does have great shakes - if you like fresh fruit shakes check out Bardon's at Front Street and Garfield.
For an awesome burger head down the road (back towards Acme) to Bayview. if you are leaving don's and turning right - Bayview is on the right not far down the road. Great chili, soups, burgers are great. They have great pizza also.
FYI: check out record-eagle.com and search Don's Drive In. In the last few months a new place in town opened (Sparky's Diner) and it is run by a guy who worked at Don's for 35 years. The food is very similar but it's a nice, clean atmosphere.
