Carl's Drive In

314-961-9652  •  $
ADDRESS: 9033 Manchester Road, Brentwood, MO 63144

CUISINE: Burgers, Hot Dogs

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free

DETAILS

Although known for its crispy edged burgers, venerable Carl's Drive In also features the curly dog, a frank sliced open and deep-fried until flattening to fit a hamburger bun just so.

Cash only. No alcohol available. Serving lunch and dinner 11 am-8 pm Tue-Sat. Closed Sun-Mon. From Riverfront Times:

"Time has stood still for several decades in this 16-seat classic burger joint, usually filled beyond capacity during peak hours. The counter staff balances taking orders by way of the pay phone with serving up spatula-smashed fresh ground beef, cooked to order within inches of those lucky enough to have snagged a stool. Custom-brewed root beer, claimed to come from the original IBC recipe, is available in frozen mugs or as part of a float."


"The secret to a great burger is getting it from the grill to the customer as fast as possible, says owner-cook Frank Cunetto, who's spent 20-plus years slinging burgers for the cherished few seats at his counter."
- Gayot
