K-R Drive-In (Rice Hill, OR)
Exit 148 of the I-5, Rice Hill, Oregon, T: 541-849-2570, E: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the I-5, between Eugene and Roseburg, is one of the shabbiest drive-ins I have visited so far. K-R Drive-In seems to be mostly popular for its ice cream (and lack of competition). They have a big selection of ice creams and shakes as well as sandwiches; the fast food selection is rather modest.
I ordered a fairly standard deal: double bacon cheese burger (no cheese, but with BBQ sauce), fries, and a small banana shake. The shocking total was $14.50! Wow, I hear you think, that must have been some burger. Well, it wasn't! The burger was absolutely average, the fries standard, and the shake way too sweet.
While the food is average, K-R's prices are far from. In fact, at any restaurant you can get the same for less (including tip and better quality). And believe me, the scenery doesn't add to the experience. In other words, if you are driving the i-5 and get up to exit 148, just keep on driving, I'm sure you can find something better and/or cheaper virtually anywhere.
