Wonderful root beer, food, service and good prices. They are always busy but play 60's music so time passes quickly. You can eat in your car or sit at a picnic table or go through the drive through. It is a fun place to go

The root beer is homemade. It has sugar in it, not the high fructose corn syrup. It was delicious. I went thru the drive thru because I did not have time for the drive-in. I will have to try next time.

The first visit was due to the need of an afternoon pick-me-up. Ordered up two root beer floats in the drive-thru. They came in a 24oz plastic cup that had scoops of vanilla ice cream, topped off with root beer. Yummy! On our second visit,...More
