The Burger Master Drive-In, located in Townsend, Tennessee, at the gateway to Cades Cove, is proudly celebrating 50 years of business!

Known to the old-timers as simply “The Chalet,” Burger Master Drive-In was built by the famous fisherman J.C. Morgan, in 1967. Morgan and his family had recently relocated to Townsend from Knoxville. The ice cream chalet was a good fit for the family’s growing horse riding business and C-store, which was next door. J.C. Morgan had an entrepreneurial spirit that never stopped. From horses and ice cream, to live fish wells and a buffalo petting zoo, the Great Smoky Mountains offered something for everyone.

The horse business grew to become the Morgan family’s focus. The Chalet would pass through many more business owners creating memories for the tourists who stopped for a classic drive-in dinner and ice cream cone. The name “Burger Master” was added in the 1980’s and the covered awning in 90’s. In 2016, the Burger Master was purchased from Bob and Barb, who had added the iconic extra-large serving on the ice cream cone along with lots of love and care. The new owner happens to be the grandson of the late JC Morgan, bitten by the same, apparently genetic, entrepreneurial bug as his grandfather!

Fifty years later, the original lighted ice cream chalet sign, attached to the signature sloped red roof is still shining bright to let the faithful customers know it is finally summertime in Townsend, Tennessee. The River Rat Tubing outpost sits next door on the old concrete pad of the Davy Crockett C-store and where one can still see the backend of what was once part of the horse stables. Come be a part of history, visiting the Peaceful Side of the Smokies with a stop at the Burger Master Drive-In. Family owned and operated!
