Sometimes nothing sounds better than an old-fashion burger and fries. Originally an A&W Drive-In, which closed in the late 1970's alongside other A&W's across Oregon, this building in Bend has been home to the Pilot Butte Drive-In since opening their doors in 1983.

You definitely won't leave hungry, as the nostalgic drive-in is known for their oversized 18 oz Pilot Butte Burger. That's over 1lbs of burger right there folks.

This enormous burger requires a custom-made bun and four slices of cheese just to cover it! In addition, their menu offers 17 different styles of mouthwatering burgers, plus sandwiches, and a complete breakfast menu.

From Central Oregon's tasty craft beers, fish and chips, to milkshakes, and a children's menu, their menu offers something for everyone.

The inside of Pilot Butte Drive-In completes the nostalgic feel with their old-school decor, and an awesome warm fire ring in the middle of the dining room.
