The Famous Milkshakes

Granny’s Drive-In SIgnature Shakes by Katerina Gasset of the Gasset Group in Utah brokered by eXp Realty…

The shakes here are legendary. They’re served overflowing — a real treat for the eyes and the taste buds. I opted for a medium raspberry milkshake, made with fresh, tangy raspberries. My daughter chose the Grasshopper, a minty delight with Oreo bits, while my son’s friend went for the Death By Chocolate shake — a chocoholic’s dream.

Granny’s isn’t just about milkshakes. The menu boasts a variety of burgers, each with its unique flavor. We all went for different cheeseburgers, and each was as delicious as the last. The buns, fresh from Salt City Baking Company, add an extra layer of yum to the burgers.

We ordered fries for my granddaughter, and while they weren’t the best ever , they were more than satisfactory. The onion rings were a typical frozen variety but still enjoyable.

Granny’s Drive-In Restaurant Review

The Atmosphere

Granny’s offers both indoor and outdoor seating. On our visit, the weather was lovely, so we grabbed a table in the shade. The place has a fantastic vibe, perfect for families or hanging out with friends. There’s even a cornhole game to enjoy while you wait for your food.

Service with a Smile

The staff, mostly friendly young teens, always serve with a smile. You get a number when you order, and they call you up when your delicious eats are ready.
