There is no Boomer’s Drive-In GoFundMe

We have been made aware of a GoFundMe page that has been set up in our name. We were not involved in setting it up nor would we benefit from any money given to it.

We have requested Yelp!, the apparent page creator, and the folks at GoFundMe take down the page and cease using our name, images and goodwill without our permission. It is very saddening to see businesses and their customers taken advantage of in this way during this current global health crisis.

Please know that we are doing fine here at Boomer’s Drive-In and look forward to helping take care of you and yours during these stressful times and after.

Dining under the drive-in canopy may bring back memories of a simpler time but these days it also serves to provide a new way to enjoy the comfort of a delicious meal within the safety of your car.

Whether dining in your car or simply picking up a to-go order, using Boomer’s Drive-In online ordering and smartphone apps, ordering and paying can be contactless (apps are available for downloading from Android Apps on Google Play and the iOS App Store).

“Contactless” is the new buzzword that has arisen from the need to accomplish essential services, such as providing meals, while maximizing safety for both the provider and the customer during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are happy to provide contactless service for our customers — without any reduction in the quality of the food we serve.

We are all in this together and we are happy to help in any way we can to make your experience as safe and enjoyable as possible.

We are currently open Sundays through Thursdays from 11am to 9pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 11am to 10pm.

We are happy to be able to provide options for enjoying Boomer’s Drive-In meals but we have to say the best way to accomplish the goal of social distancing happens by ordering online ahead of time.

Online ordering not only enables easy customizations (e.g. gluten-free or no bun, extra mayo, hold the tomato, etc.) but it also enables you to pay ahead of time. This not only maximizes social distancing but also minimizes contact opportunities by not having to pass cash or cards between you and the staff. It also speeds up the process enabling us to get your food to you sooner.

You can take advantage of online ordering whether taking your meal to-go or to eat in your car under the canopy.

Just another way Boomer’s Drive-In is working to help everyone get through this uncharted path we are all on.

We realize it seems like anyone with whom you have shared your email address is now bombarding you with emails about what they are doing to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) that has grabbed the world’s attention. And now, we are going to add to that pile.

Since we are responsible for preparing meals and our staff come in contact with so many customers, we realized our customers and employees have concerns about what they can expect at Boomer’s Drive-In during this time of societal disruption and health-minded diligence. 

Please know we have already provided our employees with additional instruction and the means to maintain a sanitized environment. Being in the food service business, this is and has always been foremost in everyone’s minds. In addition to the norm, for several years now we have adhered to an added regime of sanitizing and disinfecting during the flu season (October to May). We are continuing to do that.

Our employees have been educated on recognizing when they are ill and instructed not to come to work if that occurs. We are anticipating lighter shifts as a result and are planning for that now.

We are expecting many customers will share our concerns and strive for the oft-advised p service under the canopy and you are invited to take advantage of this dining opportunity.

For those choosing to dine in, you will notice fewer tables in the dining room. This is being done to create the appropriate distance between dining customers. that option is not available as of March 16th. The dining room will be open for picking up to-go orders but not for sit-down dining.

To minimize the opportunity for surface transmission, all orders will be served in our to-go bags until further notice. This will minimize the contact employees have with customer-contacted surfaces, thus minimizing the opportunity to spread any possible viruses. To the same end, condiments will be available by request, instead of being available at your table as in the past. This will allow us to sanitize them between uses.

Customers are also encouraged to utilize our online ordering service. This will enable us to prepare your food before you arrive, minimizing your time spent. 

Boomer’s Drive-In food is also available via a third-party delivery service. We are currently partnered with Viking Food. This is another excellent social distancing option while enjoying Boomer’s Drive-In meals. 

We hope this finds you and yours doing well and healthy and we will be doing what we can to keep it that way. We look forward to continuing to serve you, your friends and family and will be available to answer any questions you may have as we travel this new path together.

The Pacific islands’ best milk shake flavor pairs wonderfully with this month’s burger special – the Hawaiian Spam burger.

Check out this and the many other items on the menu by clicking here.

Back by popular demand! A 1/4 beef patty topped with a succulent slice of fried Spam ®, two juicy pineapple rings, and spicy jalapenos. On a bed of lettuce with a slice of tomato and dressed in our classic special sauce this burger is sure to have you on a beach hearing ukuleles as you eat.

There is one question we hear a lot at this time of the year, “Is the sale still going on?” So many sales are at best a month long. But Boomer’s Drive-In Anniversary Sale (aka “Boomuary”) goes for 2 months.

So “YES!” the sale is still going on. Come and enjoy any burger on the menu for only $3.19!

This includes all Hamburgers, Chicken Burgers and Fish Burgers.

This fabulous celebration continues all the way to February 29th, 2020!

We invite everyone to come celebrate with us everyday!

We are busily preparing for the big once-a-year event that lasts nearly two months. It’s Boomer’s Drive-In Anniversary Event and it starts January 7th and continues to the end of February. It has been endearingly dubbed ‘Boomuary’ by some customers.

During the sale, all burgers on the menu are only $3.19.

In case you are not familiar with just how popular the sale is, here are some interesting statistics from past sales:

  • If you laid all the hamburger patties sold end to end, the line would stretch for just short of 9 miles
  • A stack of the hamburger buns sold would reach 17,746 feet high, about 3.35 miles high
  • Cases of the waffle fries sold laid out next to each other would stretch across over 3 football fields
  • A chain of the onion rings sold would reach nearly 3 miles
  • Carhops hand-scooped enough hard ice cream for milkshakes to fill a large backyard swimming pool … one scoop at a time

As you probably can imagine, it is a busy time at Boomer’s Drive-In and sometimes the wait to order and to pick up can get long.

Here are some ways to minimize your wait during the sale.

  • Avoid ordering during the extra busy lunch and dinner times.
  • Call your order in. Every since we first opened our doors, our motto has been “CALL IT IN – PICK IT UP! 647-BOOM (360-647-2666).
  • Place your order online and prepay. This can be done via our website or our smartphone apps available for downloading from Android Apps on Google Play and the iOS App Store.

Another good idea is to carpool. Invite all your friends to come in one car to make parking easier for everyone.

Work to install our beautiful new flooring is finished and the dining room is open again.

Stop by to enjoy a meal and enjoy the great new ambiance in the dining room.

We told you yesterday to expect the dining room to be closed today, tomorrow and Wednesday. But, due to some extraordinary effort by workers today, the dining room is open tonight.

Sure, it is missing the pretty tile surface but you can still enjoy some inside dining.

Plans are to close the dining room tomorrow and again Wednesday so the new flooring can be installed. Maybe we will be able to open the dining room again Wednesday evening. We will let you know.

During the time the dining room is closed, we will only be able to serve you under the canopy via carhop service. So, whether you are dining under the canopy or picking up a to-go order, please pull in under the canopy, turn your lights on and someone will be with you soon.
