Had to try the famous Dough Burger at Johnnie’s Drive in. Loved It!! Got the dough burger with pickles, onions, and mustard. Pretty small inside, but it’s definitely worth it!

The dough and full meat burgers are great. Bbq is good also. The crinkle fries are really good. They gave some things that you just find in the south. The chocolate pie is worth a try and they have very good shakes. You can park...More

One of Elvis Presley’s favorite places to eat when he’d return to his hometown Tupelo. Sit at the actual table & seat where The King would sit when he wanted to enjoy a fabulous hamburger & fries.

This was our first time here, but I imagine it hasn't changed much since it first opened. It's a really cool place...lots of memorabilia on the walls. Very good hamburgers and good chicken tenders. A must see if you are passing through Tupelo.
