Good food at reasonable prices. Too bad they only operate seasonally. I always order the double cheeseburger basket which comes with fries and coleslaw. I have never been disappointed.

We were here too early for the car hops. We placed our order at the window and then it was delivered to the car. The shake was super thick, yum! The food was as expected. The price was reasonable. It was fun to try to imagine the 1950's car hop business while we waited for our food. Would have enjoyed... More

Wonderful seasonal ice cream stand. The best banana splits! Great chocolate malts as well. They also offer delicious grilled sandwiches such as cheese burgers. Car hoop service after 4 p.m. for food orders.

On a chilly Friday afternoon, we stopped for a soft drink on our way to Goshen. We were the only customers. I unbuckled my seatbelt to go order when the carhop came out. She took our order (BTW, they do not serve Mt. Dew) and when she returned, she said, "For future reference, we come take your order for food... More

Do not like that if you have just an ice cream order the car hops will not wait on you. I have had them come clear up to the car window and when told wanted ice cream, they would not serve you, you had to go up to the window for ice cream orders. And with my family, even if... More

Pleasantly surprised as we were meandering home and stumbled upon this drive in with an interesting name. Had a burger and ice cream both of which were tasty!

I've been there several times, trying each of the menu items to see if it tastes better than the last, but to no avail. The ice cream was halfway decent, but the cones tasted very stale. The last time I ate there, I had a cheeseburger and it gave me food poisoning. I should also note the employee who served... More

As a kid, my friends and I went here all the time. I was very disappointed the last time I went. It was very expensive and they barely gave you any ice cream or food at all. Not worth the money! We felt really bad that we directed friends there that were visiting from out of town. We didn't realize... More

This is a seasonal drive-in restaurant with lengthy menu choices. Their ice cream is made in store. The hamburgers are obviously hand-made, and juicy. This restaurant has been around for many years.

We have always enjoyed CHAR BETTS, It has changed owners but for the last 30 years it still has the best ice cream in Logansport. Their burgers and food are the best intown especially any compared to the fast food in the town. To bad it is only open seasonally. My favorite is the breaded tenderloin "well done" with K&M,...
