Serving burgers since 1932

New acquaintances here at Salt Springs raved to us about Angels Drive In in nearby Palatka that serves great hamburgers, fries and onion rings.  Angels Drive In has been in business for 79 years. We went there today for lunch.  The burgers were terrific.  Freshly ground beef and hand-formed patties.  The fries have the skins on them, which we love and the onion rings were light and tasty.

The burger plate is $5.45 and soft drinks come with a free refill.  No wonder they were busy.

The diner is in an actual railroad car.

Back at the campground here is a photo of a regional bird called the Limpkin.

Stay tuned.



  1. The only thing better would be if they actually cooked the fries in lard. Love them with the skins on too.

  2. You're very close to us. I didn't realize it till now. If you're in the area this next week, let us know. We're in Wauchula. (Little Charlie Creek RV Park)

  3. Thanks George for showing us “Angels Drive”. Next time through there, we will check it out too.


  4. Looks like they gave the place a face lift since we were there about 5 years ago, it was a real dive that looked it's age but the food was great.

  5. Hello From Brazil.
    Wonderful Blog, congratulations.


  6. That place looks great and yummy~~~~

  7. Just my kind of place...FRESHLY ground beef and fries with skins. Definitely on my list for winter in Florida. Thanks for the tip!
