There is a small parking lot next to the drive-in, but be warned if you are making a pit stop from a long drive as we did - there are no public restrooms nearby. All the seating is outdoors at a few roadside picnic tables. Place your order inside and wait for your name to be called.
A specialty only offered during late Spring - early Summer are king sized Lobster Rolls stuffed with chunks of real lobster meat served with warmed butter and lemon on the side. I had to order one, naturally. The sandwich itself is not exactly king size, and for the $14 price tag, I was a bit underwhelmed. However, the lobster meat - the glorious lobster meat - was absolutely divine. Two distinct full claws were placed on top of other claw and knuckle meat, in between a simple buttered roll. No mayo or relish or butter or lemon was added to the meat, allowing one to savor the natural sweetness of the fresh lobster. With it, I enjoyed a side of clam strips and waffle fries. The fries were tasty and we ate them before I could snap a pic. We were given such a large portion of the clam strips that we barely made a dent in the large pile. The clams were nicely fried and not at all chewy. They were perfect with just a squeeze of lemon.
Keith opted for the more traditional route and chose two hot dogs - the Coney Dog, a foot long served with sauteed peppers and onions with red sauce and a regular Dog Works, which came loaded with mustard, relish, and sauerkraut. While each hot dog was good, he wasn't knocked off his socks. The Coney Dog was a bit odd to have the "Italian"-factor and Keith didn't think the reference made sense. In hindsight, Keith should have ordered one of their hamburgers instead.
Overall, Danny's Drive-In was a fun and casual pit stop and would be perfect for those traveling with kids.
