Dandy's Drive-In - Bend Oregon
Dandy's Drive-InNow the photos of a Grand Dandy (sans tomato) that you will see below are not the sexiest photos. But Dandy's Drive-In has one of the best burgers in Bend and I had to have one.
If you go to Dandy's Drive-In and you're driving your F25000 Diesel Mac Truck Hemi 2x4 V89, do me a favor and shut your stupid engine off. People like to have their windows down but no, you need to keep your nasty engine running right next to me for 15 minutes while you chit chat on your old cellular telephone while waiting for your chocolate malt to take back to your double wide. I don't like you.
But I do like the Grand Dandy.
Like I said, not the sexiest photos but damn these burgers are good. Their everything you want from a burger. Juicy, thick, I'm pretty sure there's butter in the patty, and yet the bun stays nice and dry. The Grand Dandy has bacon (of course) which is thick and meaty.
Get the large fry for twenty cents more and when you do, make sure you get some extra special sauce. It's especially delicious.
I would recommend that you call your order in ahead unless you have a good 15-20 minute wait or more if you arrive during a peak lunch or dinner rush. I'm not a fan of eating in my car. Not only do I not enjoy watching the other patrons munching on their food but I like to wash my hands before I eat and especially after money has changed hands. Money is nasty, your hands are dirty, wash your nasty dirty hands.
I didn't mention anything about tipping rollerskating waitresses in my Restaurant Tipping Guide. I do tip a dollar or two when I visit at Dandy's. They ARE on roller skates after all.
