Spent the night in Cortez and we were looking for a quick place for dinner. Pulled in here, and we were glad we did... It was a bit chilly out, but we wanted the drive-in feeling. Ordered burgers, fries and shakes!!! The burgers were HUGE and sloppy. They were delicious...the fries were yummy, too. The prices are really reasonable...$14 for... More

Best burger in town, friendly staff, and good prices. The biggie special and baby biggie specials are the secret mostly known by long-time locals!

We stumbled on this place a few years back when visiting Mesa Verde national park. We pass thru here usually once a year road tripping and stop here anytime its close to eating time. Cool old school car hop with great burgers. Big old fashioned sloppy burgers. You'll want to ask for extra napkins. Fries are great too and the... More

I'm a car guy and like going to drive-ins. We had just arrived and needed a quick dinner. We were going to Sonic's that we passed on the way in (checking out all the dinner choices) and on the return trip saw Burger Boy - went there instead to patronize a local establish (when possible). The food is typical drive-in... More

We loved going to Burger Boy during our three month stay in Cortez. The drive in dining brought back such fun childhood memories. The food was great and such a great value for the money. Excellent service!

I usually get the basic. It doesn't have too many ingredients and they use cheddar and real eggs - no processed junk.

A bit of nostalgia, takes you back in time. The drive-in is so cute and easy to get to - right on main street. The burritos are EXCELLENT and HUGE! Service was fine, she was very friendly and the food came out in a very acceptable amount of time given that they make each to order. We couldn't eat all... More

Right on main street, easy to see and get to. Definitely an old style burger place, that is obvious...place has seen some miles...nothing fancy here....just a trip back to simpler times. Be forewarned parking is tight....and risky to bumpers and mirrors, so choose a spot wisely. There is no walk up window to place an order, there are no Sonic... More
