Larry's Drive In (Fillmore, Utah)

Growing up, when we would travel as a family, with my dad, we would stop every 60-90 minutes. Dad had to stretch his legs. So, I was pretty used to that...then I met Steve. When he travels, he is used to just going and getting there, with as few stops as absolutely possible. I quickly adapted to this way of traveling until my mom started traveling with us....we are at a sort of happy medium. We stop more than Steve was used to, but less than when we traveled with my dad.

Now when we go someplace, we try to just have pit stops when we need to put gas in the car. We also like to get hot dogs....there isn't much like a gas station hot dog...yum yum yum! Maveriks have become a favorite, not only for the hot dogs, but for the rewards program in buying gas and everything now! If you need a card, my mom will be more than happy to help...she works at the Maverik at Thanksgiving Point, affectionately known as "turkey maverik", lol...

On our trips to Mesquite, we often stop at the Maverik in Fillmore. We have been there 3 of our 4 trips to Mesquite this year. We have not gotten hot dogs on any of these visits because they looked very gross....so, I took pictures and I am working on showing them to the powers that be....
these are from 3 Mar 2009, 31 Mar 2009 and 18 May 2009, respectively...


So, last night, after finding the icky hot dogs once again...we ventured off to find something else to eat in Fillmore...we ended up at Larry's Drive In, just across and down the road from Maverik, at 1030 South Highway 99, phone number 435-743-5411. We got there right at closing time, 9pm, but they were nice enough to let us in, anyway. It was a little high priced, so we just got an order of chicken nuggets and a corn dog with an order of french fries. The chicken nuggets were ok, but we probably wouldn't order them again. The corn dog was very good, much like Arctic Circle, as they both use Foster Farms. The french fries were very good, but very high priced, too. We would like to go there again and try the hamburgers and shakes. I tried finding anything about this place on the internet, but didn't have much luck. It does not have a website and it seems that it is listed on a bunch of other websites, but with no reviews or other information. So, I hope you find this helpful and yes, I would recommend Larry's as a great place to grab something fast and delicious!
