We drove by the Circus Drive In, a Wall Township institution, this winter and just knew that we needed to come back once it opened back up in the spring. We finally got a chance to get there and we’re so glad we did! Some places try to seem like an old-fashioned drive in restaurant and some places are the real deal. Circus Drive In does everything right.
Wanting to change our burger routine up a little, this time we went with a patty melt. Buttery grilled rye bread with hot patty and lots of melty cheese and grilled onions. Yes, we’re ready to back again for more!
We also tried some hot dogs which turned out to be monster footlong dogs.
One with chili (lots of beans, yum!) and one with sauerkraut. Neither disappointed.
We tried several sides with our sandwiches. The fries were crinkled and perfectly crispy. The onion rings were also well-fried and crunchy. I like the kind of batter that comes off in sheets because it feels more homemade, I think. That’s exactly what we got here. I also had baked beans which were good but nothing special.
Feeling like we needed to have a sundae because we were at a drive in and it just felt right, we ordered a hot fudge sundae with the works and got a masterpiece. Don’t forget dessert when you go over to the Circus Drive In!
Check out all the pics from our visit to Circus Drive In and make sure you pay special attention to the shots of the restaurant itself. It’s fantastic looking!
