You know you are at a great burger joint when your clothes smell like a burger when you get home! It's worth it! My husband and I feel nostalgic when we eat here. You have to have the chocolate shake with your meal to throughly...More

Great place for lunch on the run. Awesome burgers and shakes. The fries are the best. Fun, fast, and delicious. What more can you ask?

This is not your typical burger Fast Food joint - yes, fast and friendly, but the food has few rivals in the "fast food hamburger" category. Drifter's knows beef, and only uses the best - a local Callicrate grown beef, which I'm told means hormone...More

We used to go every Saturday for a cheeseburger with grilled onions and a boysenberry milkshake. Now that I can't eat wheat, I just get the shake and fries. The burgers can't be beat. And when we want a breakfast burrito, this is the only...More

These burgers are delicious! They are basically just like In-N-Out burgers in California but I think better. The fries are delicious also and very cheap!

The original owner of this establishment made the food as close to IN-N-Out Burger as possible. (I knew him) definitely a close 2nd to the double double. Gotta have one if youre hankering for California Classic.

We are fans of In-n-Out Burger and have found Drifters to be the closest you will find in taste here in Colorado Springs. The burgers are really good and their shakes are delicious. I definitely recommend them.

Above average hamburgers/cheeseburgers cooked to order and done really well. The Cheeseburgers look like they might have come right off your backyard grill. Very limited menu which is a good thing and the menu includes some breakfast offerings. The dust bunnies on the light fixtures...More

We've been going here since it opened, and there are no better burgers in this town, especially including all of the chain restaurants. Their boysenberry milk shake is our favorite. Fries and onion rings are great as well. I can't recommend it highly enough.
