These 5 Montana Drive-In Restaurants Are Fun For An Old Fashioned Night Out
There’s something about a classic drive-in restaurant that conjures up a nice dose of nostalgia. We’ve still got plenty to choose from here in the Last Best Place, and these five have an especially excellent reputation.
1. R-B Drive In, 932 Helena Ave., Helena
R-B Drive In has been serving hearty burgers and crispy fries to the Helena population for the better part of a century. And the food is still just as tasty (and comforting) as ever.
2. Mark's In & Out, 801 W Park St., Livingston
Since 1954, Mark's has been a beloved staple for both locals and visitors to Livingston. It still has such an old-fashioned charm, it's impossible not to love it -- and the fact that the food is genuinely delicious doesn't hurt.
3. Rod's Drive Inn, 1827 5th Ave., Havre
Rod's was made famous by the Ugly Burger, which is actually quite aesthetically appealing. Their flavored sodas and chicken strips are also fantastic.
4. King's Hat Drive-in, 105 S 37th St., Billings
Billings just might be the burger capital of Montana -- they've got plenty of options. But there's really something special about King's Hat, which has been in operation since 1949. The line around the block at lunchtime every day proves it.
5. Matt's Place, 2339 Placer St., Butte
Matt's Place Drive-In was one of the first drive-in restaurants in Montana, even earning a spot on the Register of Historic Places. This isn't a typical setup, and that's because the Matt's Place building is an old house. They're open Tuesday - Saturday from 11:30 - 7, and the burgers, fries and ice cream are simply scrumptious.
