    Galley Boy with bacon and onion, fries (crispy), potato teasers with ranch, and a chocolate shake will blow your mind!

    Classic American drive-in with great burgers and shakes and the quickest service I've ever seen. Pull up to a parking spot, turn on your lights, and watch as waiters dash to your car full speed ahead.

    Barf, no bueno. Tastes like a frozen unseasoned beef patty from GFS. Go to Cleveland and get a Brown Bag or a B-Spot. The Drive-in theme makes no sense. Why are they running?

    If you've never had a Galley Boy, you must not have been born here.... Do yourself a favor & partake in the best America has to offer.
