Homer's Drive Inn in Leavenworth, Kansas was started as a wooden stand in 1931 where Homer McKelvey sold root beer. He moved and expanded the menu and moved three years latter, arriving at the present location in 1938.  It is more of a drive through than a drive in. For service in your car, you pull up next to the restaurant and someone comes out to take your order and brings it back out to-go. If there is more than one car at a time, they form a line.

Homer's burgers, fries and onion rings are all good, but not great. The standout is the country fried steak sandwich, which didn't look that impressive when it was served, but was one of the best I have had. The malt's are better than most. The prices have gone quite a bit in the past few years, but they started out low enough that they are still reasonable, if not the bargain they once were.

For me, the food is fine, but Homer's is more about the tradition and the 1960s look to the interior.

Breakfast is served until 10:30AM when the kitchen switches over to preparing lunch.
