Hazel’s Drive In of Antioch: The place for milkshakes

Zipping to and from the Day’s Inn in Antioch, I passed by the intersection that is home to the neon-lit “EAT” sign at Hazel’s Drive In several times. Before leaving town, I dropped in to check it out.

The exterior is a classic drive-in with plenty of glass and neon surrounded by a parking lot. Inside’s a counter with stools and a very friendly lady who welcomed me. I asked what Hazel’s is known for and she said milkshakes and huge burgers. The milkshakes are made with real ice cream and come in every flavor imaginable. I asked what the most popular flavor might be. Peanut butter was her answer, but she added that she liked the Almond Roca herself.

I ordered one for the road. Flecked with chocolate-coated toffee and a base of almond extract and vanilla ice cream, this was indeed a dead ringer for Almond Roca in thick, rich liquid dairy form. If anyone’s tried Hazel’s, please chime in.

  1. tried hazel's last year.
    Giant patty burger (9) was 2 smaller patties. cooked medium with the usual toppings, the meat was tasteless and there wasn't any juice.

    fries were light brown, slighty crunchy, mushy inside..
    guess milkshakes is the go to item here.

      Sounds like a regular ol' fast food burger, too bad.

      If you're in the neighborhood again, try the milkshake.
