#4. Corky’s Drive-In

Peggy Veld-Brown told us that Corky's Drive-In is one of her favorite Allegan spots.

Lesley G had this to say in her 5-star review on TripAdvisor,

Corky's is a great little place! They have great burgers (especially the olive burger), tater tots, broasted chicken, and root beer. It's not fancy, but that's part of its charm! You can eat in your car, or sit at their picnic benches (very nice and clean), or get your food to go. The service is quick and friendly, and the food is always tasty. A true gem in Allegan.

Great food and service. The staff is always very helpful with us, especially since we usually have two people with walkers. They are always patient with us, and helpful. Food has always been excellent, and served quickly. The pie is amazing!
