Try navigating Harrison Avenue during the late afternoon and you will quickly realize that Butte, Montana is a town on the go.  Sure, we love our sit-down dinners and fine dining but a lot of the time we want something fast, and Butte does not lack in the drive-thru department.  Who has the best drive-thru in Butte?  Here are a few that we think do the best job.

MCDONALD'S

McDonald's has to be near the top of the list when you take into consideration their 24-hour service, their cooked-to-order Quarter Pounders and their newly revamped cheeseburgers and Big Macs.  McDonald's is universally known as being kid-friendly and their dual drive-thru kiosks help keep their lines moving quickly.  Their mobile app is very user friendly and their rewards program is one of the most generous in the industry.

WENDY'S

Wendy's drive-thru is one of the fastest in town which is very impressive considering its popularity.  Wendy's has always taken pride in the quality and freshness of their sandwiches and with side-dishes like chili and baked potatoes you have a wide variety of options to order.

BONANZA FREEZE

The Bonanza Freeze is one of the oldest drive-thru restaurants in Butte and their longevity can be directly attributed to the quality of their food.  Of course, their desserts are what made them famous, but their cheeseburgers are some of the best in town and if you haven't tried their chili dog, you're missing out on one of life's simple pleasures.

LA SIRENA

In a relatively short amount of time, La Sirena has developed a big following in Butte.  And they know drive-thru.  In fact, that's the only way that you can get one of their incredible dishes like the California Burrito or their pulled pork chimichanga with green chili sauce.  Their food is simply delicious, and they give you a lot of food for your dollar.  Their drive-thru line moves very quickly as well so you won't spend too much time waiting.

PORK CHOP JOHN'S

John's Original Pork Chop Sandwich is a Mining City staple with John's being the first stop for many visitors upon entering out city.  John's also is famous for their unique pork nuggets, their double-dog served on a round bun and their white sauce that goes good on just about anything.  John's on Harrison has a few more menu items than their uptown counterpart and will have you through the line very quickly.

ROYSE'S HAMBURGERS

Family-owned since 1971, Royse's is one of the places that many Butte natives remember enjoying since their childhood.  Their aptly named Big Montana Burger is a behemoth and Royse's is known throughout town for their amazing fry sauce.  Their chicken strips, chicken sandwiches and pork chop sandwiches are pretty darn good, too.
