What says “summer” more than a hot dog, root beer float, and an ice cream sundae? We’ll wait… When it comes to quintessential summertime eats in greater Grand Rapids, Cook’s Drive-In of Dutton is hard to beat.
Settled into their new digs for over ten years — their original location was on Eastern Avenue dating back to the 1940s — Cook’s Drive-In continues to serve a taste of summer to smiling patrons. Grand Rapids-centric creations like the aptly titled Grand Rapids Dog (secret sauce, sauerkraut, mustard, relish, and onions) and Olive Dog (ketchup, mayo, relish, and sliced green olives) are both solid choices. Delights like the Venezuelan Dog and the Tabasco-laced Mad Dog will satisfy even the most daring dog lovers. If you’re a traditionalist, chili dogs and simple favorites fill out the menu.
Devouring delectable dogs demands an ice cold drink. Wash ’em down with a frosty mug root beer or make it a float with a scoop of ice cream. If you have any room left in your tank, cool off with an ice cream sundae, flurry, or malt served up by the welcoming staff.
Patio dining allows you to enjoy your eats under the sun, making Cook’s Drive-In a bonafide summer hit.
Cook’s Drive-In is located at 6874 Hammond Ave SE, Dutton, MI 49316.
