I've never been so my niece took me over to get hamburgers - this was like the old time burgers i remember - love the paper wrapper - the fries were great - the service was quick. Even with the construction at Lindsey and I-35...More

Great food!! I love their fried pickles and chili dogs. Their loaded bake potato is really good too.

Classic 50's is Norman. Yep, it's a drive-in, but it is THE drive-in. Even Sonic tried to compete with classic 50's by building a store right next door around 1990 or so. (Sonic tore down its store and moved far away from the awesomeness that...More

When you're in Norman you have to stop by and get a sprittle (Sprite with skittles) or create your own slush with candy mix-ins. Make sure you get a fat straw too. Don't expect the fastest service, but it's worth the wait

This restaurant was originally a Sonic, and the food is "very sonic," but not as good. Since Sonic and this restaurant a across the street from each other, I am not sure why anyone would frequent Classic 50's.

Great drive-in with the 50s feel and vibe. So easy to drop in and order a fabulous slush. So many slush flavors are offered - too numerous to list. My favorite is the non-alcoholic Khula & Creme slush or any berry slush. These slushes are...More

The food was good which helped for the rating. In the last month sep-Oct 2015 I've been here twice and they got the order wrong both times. I have to agree with someone else's comments. Not sure if it's switched owners but over the years...More

Sort of a throw back fast food drive in. Great selection of slushes and shakes. I love the corn dogs. Burgers are good too. I always stop on the way home after Sooner games and get some corn dogs for the trip home. Never been...More

Used to love this place when I was younger but to be honest I'm leery of eating here. The place looks a little run down. A face-lift would help them a lot. If the outside appearance of a restaurant isn't kept up it always makes...More

I love going to Sonic, but now I would much rather come here! I had a blackberry slush (which they also have now at Sonic) and the 50s Drive-Inn slush was so much better! To my surprise there were a lot of actual blackberries included...More
