Ed Walker’s Drive-In is the place to visit when you want to experience a simpler time – the 1950’s. We offer a long-standing tradition that connects people of all generations. We have been delighting residents and visitors of Fort Smith, Arkansas with our world-famous burgers. made fresh with handmade patties, and other tasty menu items since 1943.
Originally a small gas station, we evolved over the years to include a hamburger stand and a full-service, family-friendly diner.
We have only owned the business for 10 years, but we have kept its many original traditions. We continue to serve delicious food options of yesterday and today, and we are the last establishment that serves beer to your car in all of Arkansas. Our service area includes Fort Smith, Sallisaw, Alma, and Ozark.
We make hamburgers like you do at home! Made from the freshest and best cuts of beef. Our burgers have been a staple of the community since we first began selling them from the stand at our gas station in the 1940’s. Each patty is hand-formed and cooked to perfection.
Some of our menu items have been on our menu for decades because of their popularity. These dishes include French dip sandwiches, slow-cooked roast beef, delicious dipped ice cream and milk shakes. There is truly something for everyone.
