Well, my boyfriend and I went there and thought it was a neat atmosphere if you're going for burgers and beers and watching the game. Children may get a kick out of it as well. Once we had ordered my boyfriend decided he would like to add ribs to the order, so we put it with my order of chicken strips, as it was an option to get with them. The waitress was very kind and said she'd get the kitchen staff to do that if they could - which they did. Soon the food came out, only to have my boyfriend's burger was not the right burger. It was sent back, and he soon got his actual burger. I went to have some of my fries after having my over crispy and somewhat cold chicken strips, only to find them ice cold and tasted as if they were 2 days old. I didn't bother to eat them, and not send them back, as I wasn't even that interested in them in the first place. The ribs on the other hand were rather good, so I give them that. The manager did come out and talk with us, and apologized for the burger. He talked to us saying they're still working out some kinks in the kitchen staff and what not, and he was very polite and understanding. He didn't charge us for my boyfriend's meal either. Possibly going there in another month or two when they may have a better kitchen staff might be a good choice, but I more then likely will not return.

Horrible

I was there a while back for a large family birthday dinner. Usually there is a separate room for large parties, but someone had booked it before us, which is fine. So here are 15 people sitting in almost the middle of the restaurant, and we have ONE waiter. There were about 15 waiters and waitresses there, if not more, and half of them were just standing around and talking! It took 30 minutes for everyone to finally get their drinks, 45 minutes for everyone just to order, and an hour and a half.. to almost an hour and 45 minutes for everyone to begin eating since we arrived! I understand that there's a large group of people, but it's just horrible to have such poor service. My boyfriend asked for ketchup, but got none after waiting for 20 minutes, so my brother's girlfriend gave my boyfriend some off of her plate which came with her dinner. I was so surprised with this service as I usually hear decent things. I ordered a simple salad, and had to leave early because the dinner was running so late. So when asking to get my dinner wrapped up, instead the waiter brought the check! I then had to ask him again to wrap up my dinner, and everyone just decided to leave as the check had already come. It was a horrible experience, the service sucked, the food was okay, and being so crammed in the middle of a busy restaurant with 15 people was poorly designed. I recommend going there if you're into just having a drink and appetizer, with no where else to go after, as you may not get served for a long time.

Beacon Drive-In126 Douglas Street, Victoria
It Isn't So Bad..

Beacon Drive-In is a part of many Victorian's life and tourist's time spent here. I could only remember good things about this place until recently. I soon discovered that they charge extra for condiments such as an extra sauce for your chicken strips or packets of jam for your toast. I also feel strongly against people ragging on the young people who work there, blaming them for the poor service when some of them may be either improperly trained, or it is their first job. Send a letter to the management about what you do and don't like, the servers have no say in the rules! All in all though, I think if you're looking for a laid back atmosphere where you can sit down and laugh with friends, this is the place to come. Don't expect anything over the top.. this is just a ice cream and hamburger joint. I believe if you're going to try something local in Victoria, try Beacon Drive-In.
