I use to enjoy the drive-in. It was an easy way to get a car hop special hamburger with out having to wear a shirt. But the reason that I am writing this review is because of the quality of the food for the value.
Like most people I would like to eat healthy. Not only did I not get the half plate of mixed veggies, I got stickey rice, not fluffy. The veggies were just two, well cooked, flavorful, but limited. And the turkey was less than filling. I think they cook their own turkeys. I might be wrong about that. Still, for the price, it was just a bit too little.
I should have stuck with the burger and half and half fries. Half edible, half fry ends that are only good for the gulls. I know of other places near by that have better value. Next time.
I think they lost the vision at this location.

I'd been walking/hiking all day. I was very tired, hungry, thirsty. So I stopped at the first place that I could sit down. Ordered a hamburger with salad.
Not asked what I was drinking, so water will do.
The burger was 4 ounces of dry meat in a very old dry bun. The bun fell apart it was that old. I took a slice of the meat to see if it was as dry as it looked. It was; no flavour except for salt. I think it was a pre made patty that they froze. Or a cooked patty that they reheated in a pan. What ever it was, it was not worth the $12.00. That is twelve dollars after tax, so it makes this a twenty four dollar hockey puck.
I told my waitress; her reply, "I'm sorry" Really(?)
No, "I'm sorry, can I replace that with something else?" No, I'll speak with the chef and manager to see why, ( besides being cheep asses who don't care) and is there anything else that you would like instead?" Nope, just suck it up ass, eat what we give you, and don't forget to pay the full amount with a 20% tip. It's no longer going to let it slide. I'm no longer going to tip a waitress when the experience, attitude, meal are poor. (And please don't think that the waitress cannot be responsible for the food). I'm sure if everyone stopped tipping for bad attitude and food, they'll soon hold a knife to the bxxxx of the cooks for not getting tipped because of the quality of the food.
And to top it off, as I was leaving she wished me a good night.........Dxxx! I'm still not sure how she knew my name is Dxxx...Hay!; it's not Dxxx

They don't care! The location is the only thing that keeps this place in operation. If it weren't for the fact that it's near a Sky train station, theere would be another coffee shop there. I wanted veggies.lots of veggies.if I wanted noodles and meat with too much oil, I would have made a point of ordering oily meat and noodles. I made a point of LOTS OF VEGGIES! And for the price of a meal for two, that feed only me, I got ripped off.
They had to bring me some veggies as a side dish to make up for the lack of them in my meal. And what they brought was just oily baby boo choy.
With the ten other places near by that had far more customers inside, I messed up.
Screw the Old Ginger.
