Billy Burger Drive-in, Wilbur, WA
Open since 1957, Billy Burger Drive-In is worth a stop. You can’t miss this amazing neon sign, it’s in perfect condition. It makes you happy just to see it.
I stopped for an early lunch on a Monday morning in mid-August and it wasn’t long before the place full and it was standing room only. While waiting for the food, I reviewed a huge salt and pepper shaker collection. The burgers and fries were terrific, the price decent. I plan to visit again. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
