Sault St. Marie, Michigan – Drive up Diner

West Pier Drive-In ahhh what a burger!

After a great private tour of the Soo Locks including the power plant on Engineers Day we were hungry.  We had been hearing about this little place called the West Pier.  After a few turns just west of the Locks we found it.  They came right out to the car and took our order.  The menu is on the wall and if you are looking for malts to burgers to chicken O’s for the kids they had it all.  We were what appeared to be about the forth car to have just ordered and the food was still quite quick for such a little place.


The Burgers of West Pier!


The price was right so we gave them a try.  They said it was a full half pound before cooking and so  I ordered a burger with everything and let me tell you the bun had all it could do to keep it in.   The car hop never asked me how I wanted it done.  I guess maybe they figure its their half pound specialty and it was!  As we sat there and ate I will tell you I decided then that this place is a place I will return to.
