Many of their speakers don't work, and I don't think they can be fixed. I like their vanilla malts and french fries. Burgers are a little dry. They have good coney dogs.One pet peeve I have when going there is that most people leave their lights on when parked after dark. It's hard to enjoy your food, when car lights... More

The Beacon is one of the best kept secrets of Muskogee. It looks like a super run down version of sonic, but the food is much better! Yes, some of the order stations do not work and sometimes the orders seem to take forever, but I've never been disappointed by the food. Make sure you bring cash. The owner refuses... More

Food was average, people were nice but their drive-in was totally run down. The roof and coverings are about to fall down and anything that is metal is rusted. Ick. We won't be returning.;

One of Muskogee's longest lasting drive ins. Has been there forever and that MUST mean something. Genuinely good food, quickly served and NO surprises. Live like it used to be and chow down on the comfort of your car on real car food. Ten, twenty, thirty years or more, the Beacon has always served real good food and that does... More

Typical greasy-spoon eats & prices, but hands-down, positively the best lime-ade ever to exist in history! Bring cash because they don't take credit cards.

A good basic burger place. Good price for a burger. The size and quality were good meat looks and taste like the patty was done there. The fries were hot and we'll seasoned. The only drawback maybe that they are Cash only. Overall I will be back.

I return to Beacon's for their crushed Ice and soda drinks. The food I have eaten has been good. Service is great. The only thing I would say is the car hop speakers are broken on several parking slots.

I really wanted to find this as a gem of a place with great old-fashioned food and good service. I was disappointed, unfortunately. Thankfully I had cash (which I never have on me) because this restaurant is cash-only. After ordering on their ancient ordering system, our order took almost 20 minutes to come to the car. We ordered a foot-long... More

Saw this place on Trip Advisor and had to try it. Glad I did! Great burger and onion rings at a great price. Meat had really good flavor and the food was delivered quickly.

We just recently moved to town and the Beacon was something of a wonderful surprise. The food is cheap and plentiful. The pickles were cut too thick for us, which messes with the proportion of breading to pickle taste, but the onion rings tasted excellent. They do not accept credit cards so please remember to bring cash. Also some of... More
