About Hal's

A favorite of locals and visitors since 1952, Hal’s Hamburgers has been serving up the best in classic drive-up food, with the nostalgic vibe to match!

More than just a classic 50’s burger joint, our little restaurant offers over 20 creative burgers. Plus, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads, beer battered onion rings, tots, and more.

Hal’s is the go-to spot for soft serve ice cream and quite likely the best shakes around—choose from 40 different flavors – mix and match!

With a large outdoor patio and indoor dining room, there is plenty of space for large groups to enjoy what this little place has to offer. Or, enjoy sitting on the outdoor patio for a casual lunch.

Hal’s is pet friendly! Every doggie drive thru gets a piece of our freshly cooked bacon and you can order a puppy patty. (Cats welcome too!).

Whether you live here, or just passing through, you won’t want to miss this gem from the 1950’s with old fashioned friendly service.

We look forward to serving you!

Hal's History

Welcome to Hal’s Hamburgers, keeping nostalgia alive and well in Pendleton, Oregon since 1952.

Hal & Mary were the original owners of Hal’s Hamburgers. Opened in 1952, this little burger joint has served customers from everywhere…. including Bing Crosby as he traveled through to visit his children at college. The restaurant was sold to the Spiess family in 1977, and remains in the family today.

“Old-fashioned burger drive-ins make us happy. And we love being able to serve our community and visitors a wide variety of tasty burger, fries, shakes—and more. Hal’s has been in business for more than sixty years, and we’re looking forward to many more!”
— The Spiess Family
