GoI'd food, great price. Family friendly. Plenty of options for the picky eater. To bad it's only seasonal.

Swing by and take a picture of the vintage police car parked at Belew's! Its neat! Very kids friendly! You can sit at the picnic table and watch the kids play in the grass area. Corn hole toss, ball pass around.... Hamburger was good as well as the fries. Price was inexpensive. Cash only. Living like you're in the 80s... More

Not many places have Curb Service but they do here. These girls work their butts off and always have a smile. The Burgers are called King Size but they are flattened out and a little bit crispy, good and different. The onion rings and fries are delish but their Chocolate Shakes are the best. No inside seating but plenty of... More

The cheeseburger was thin but tasty. The milkshake was excellent. I believe the French fries were of the frozen variety and were just okay. I would not get French fries from this restaurant again. They have carhops which is cool. They have seating outside under the trees which was very nice. It's an old-fashioned drive-in with a twist. I will... More

Belew's Dairy Bar is a fabulous drive-in, and is where all of the locals eat. All knowing Visitors also stop by, because the menu is extensive, provides great food and the service is very professional. Some of the nicest restaurant staff in the USA. You MUST stop and enjoy a meal!

There aren't a lot of places to eat in Aurora during the week but we found Belew's and loved it! The "car hops" were friendly and very efficient and the food was yummy! What a treat! There is no inside dining room but we were happy with the picnic tables under the shelter.

This is my favorite place to get an authentic thick shake, old fashioned large, thin, dressed burger (that's perfectly cooked and crunchy on the sides), and fries or onion rings. There's sometimes a wait, but it's worth it. The soft serve, Malts, and ice cream sundaes are all retro 1950's. Eat on the castle or in the covered picnic pavilion.... More

Every time we visit Kentucky lake we have a belies burger, fries and shake! It's always packed but WORTH THE WAIT!!! Be patient and enjoy your company! If you are the impatient type have dinner backwards and start your meal with a shake first!!! DELICIOUS!!!
