About the Restaurant

There may be no White Castles outside of the United States, but Toronto's King's Drive-In bears an uncanny resemblance. Once inside, though, the blue, orange and white colour scheme is traded in for kitschy, nostalgic decor, like custom-made tabletops with the King's Drive-In logo and vintage Coca-Cola ads. The menu is typical of a fast-food joint with burgers, hot dogs, fries, poutine and fish and chips being served in all their greasy glory. And for only a toonie (plus tax), grab a domestic beer or milkshake to wash it all down. Much of the menu is homemade, including onion rings and the chili that can top fries, poutine, burgers or hot dogs. Though officially a drive-in, the environmentally conscious staff welcomes walk ups or bike ups and drive ups so as to prevent a line of idling cars.
