I actually work there. Although it's not how it use to be, it is still a wonderful atmosphere. I work in the diary bar and love meeting new customers around the country and even around the world! The food is great, unless you're on diet! (but we also have foods that is good for a diet) So what it's a little greasy, but what do you expect, it's a Drive-In? COME TO THE BEACON DRIVE-IN!

When I went 2 years ago the experience was much better the staff had a flare to them. This past time the atmosphere has changed for the worst. The food is still good and if you get a a-plenty plate you will have more food that you know what to do with. The onion rings a awesome and the Burgers and BBQ are not half bad. It's just I go for the experience. I was very disappoint when I took my wife for the first time and never the phrase "CALL IT!" said once. Due to this change it just isn't worth the long drive to visit anymore. I hate to say that one of my favorite places to take a day trip too is just not the same anymore.

My co-workers and I travel all over the country and we always try to hit the DDD and MvF places wherever we go so we've had our share of greasy food experiences and none of us minds a little food with our grease now and then. Before we went to Beacon, the locals we were visiting warned us that this place was going to give us an oil change so we were expecting it to be greasy. They also warned us about knowing what we want before we order to avoid getting chastised so we were ready. I ordered the chili-cheese burger a'plenty and a side of Hush Poppers to share. The Beacon lives up to it's greasy reputation, that's for sure. The poppers were good and the onion rings were good. Nothing special about the fries but the chili-cheese burger was not good. A thin little patty of meat and the chili, I just did not like it. One of my co-workers ordered the pimento-cheese burger a'plenty and his response was "it's okay." He also commented on how tiny his burger patty was. Now the fun part... when we returned to work, all of us were feeling a little nauseous and for me it stayed through the next day. I think next time I'm in the area, I'll pass on Beacon.
