Get the low down on the Lo-Mar!
The Lo-Mar drive-in is located on U.S. 54 in Eureka. Robby owns it and is there behind the counter 7 days a week, or so said the ladies waiting in line. Robby works very hard to please his customers. One was asking for a slightly burned pork tenderloin sandwich.
The specialty at the Lo-Mar is the Marshmellow Nut Cups. I just assumed that referred to some kind of an ice cream dish. But maybe it's a cup of marshmellows and nuts. Maybe the marshmellows is where the "Mar" in Lo-Mar comes from.
What I love is he uses fresh beef for his hamburgers. It might take a bit longer but you won't get a pre-cooked burger. My beef patty was about a third bigger than the bun and just hung out beautifully around the sides. Tantalizing the taste buds. It didn't last long enough for me to take a picture of it.
In the summer, Robby uses fresh peaches and strawberries in the milk shakes.
This is one of those super duper, service-is-everything, fresh-and-local ingredient type of places. The kind you're so glad is in your town.
Oh, and I had the best cherry limeade I've ever had!
Yes, you have to get out of your car and go to the window to order but you'll get to visit with the locals standing in line and get the true feel of the Lo-Mar. Plus, you get to look Robby in the eye and say thanks.
Get the Lo-Mar and you'll "Get Kansas!"
