Service was great, the servers literally were running from car to car. The burgers here are really good. Also had onion rings and fries, fries are thick, they cook them perfectly and apply light salt. The onion rings were very hot, actual onion inside, very good. Topped it off with a chocolate shake which also was very good. Price to... More

Ordered Galley Boy, single cheeseburger, double burger, fries and chocolate milkshake with an extra cup to split it. Server repeated what we ordered. When meal finally arrived, took much longer than expected as not that many parking spaces were full, the person delivering it said here's your diet Pepsi, which was not ordered. When spouse opened her sandwich it was... More

The galley boy is burger perfection. Excellent fresh toppings and the burger is quality. I wish you would expand outside of the Akron/Cleveland area and move to Pittsburgh area!

Food is delicious and not really expensive. Burgers fries onion rings all fast food but they have been in business for years and the food is so good. Try it if you like a good burger. Onion rings are great, fried mushrooms also. Service is fast, you stay in your car and they have carhops that come to your car... More

You can't beat Swensons for good, cheap burgers. The kids running the food out to your car is pretty neat too. Don't forget to order a California or a Florida to drink. They are unique and delicious.

Good food, great value, and an awesome experience!! The kids simply love the car hops and the service is helpful and fast. They run to serve you. It's a blast from the past! Thumbs up to the burgers, fries, chicken sandwich, and onion rings.

Swenson's is a must stop if you are in the Cleveland area. Old style drive in with car hops that fly around the parking lot. It brings a whole new meaning to speedy service. The burgers are unique with a hint of brown sugar and delicious. The coney sauce on the hot dogs also has the slightly sweet taste. The... More

Food was excellent. Genuine full flavored milk shakes. Friendly car hops. Ours was at the car in seconds. No posted menu - ask your car hop. Worth a short detour on a road trip.
