The sumburger Drive-In & The New sumburger Restaurant

A Chillicothe Original

Welcome to sumburger! We are a family owned and operated restaurant that has been a nostalgic part of Southern Ohio since 1953!

About Us

For over 63 years, sumburger Drive-In has been offering an amazing, cook-to-order menu with everything from our famous Double sumburger Platter (starting with 2 fresh, all beef patties, served up on a hot bun topped off with 2 slices of melted cheese, lettuce, and our own sumburger sauce) to Perch Dinners and mouth-watering Bourbon Chicken! We are one of the few original 1950's drive-ins left today. With a unique concept of carhop service and phones for ordering at every booth, we are one-of-a-kind!

In 2016, we expanded our brand and opened the sumburger Restaurant on the west-end of Chillicothe! This location offers a beautifully decorated, contemporary environment and counter-service that provides a large selection of items you love from our original menu. With free WiFi and 2 large flat screens, this is a great place for a casual family dinner. Just order your food at the counter, take a pager, and pick up your food at the window when it is ready!

Both locations offer a convenient pick-up window for call ahead ordering so that you can grab a delicious sumburger, hot crinkle fries, and our home-made cole slaw while you are on the go! Menu varies by location. sumburger Drive-In on Bridge Street has a large banquet room to meet any need whether your event is for a family get-together or business meeting. With seating for up to 75, there is plenty of room and privacy. Call today to make your reservation or to order ahead for the pick-up window! Gift Certificates are also available for purchase.

Our History

sumburger Drive-in was first opened for business in 1953. It was located on South Bridge Street (US RT 23) and housed in a custom-made trailer. The name Trailer Drive-in was the true original name. The original trailer was moved to its present location in 1954, the name was changed to Logan View Drive-in, and an additional trailer was added. Operating during the warm months of the year, only carhop and carryout service were available. Because the patrons referred to the sandwich as "some burger" the name officially changed to sumburger Drive-in in 1974.

In 2003 sumburger celebrated its 50th year in business while its hometown, the state's first capitol, helped to celebrate Ohio's Bicentennial. In 2016, we expanded our brand and opened the sumburger Restaurant on the west-end of Chillicothe!
