This place has been here for ever, great chili dogs at a great price, fresh Root Beer in glass mugs on a tray on your window located on the historic old Dixie Highway.

We're locals, and eat here several times a month. We've reviewed before, but like to keep our reviews current. Many times through the season the Root Beer Stand is open, we're asked by visitors where this place is, and the first thing we tell them,...More
