Good Family Place!

This place would be great for families or sports teams getting together. The food is really good and the prices are very reasonable. Service is quick. I highly recomend this place.

Beef A Roo is a local chain frequently visited by those who live nearby. They have the best cheese fries on the planet! The chili in winter is good (finally some place that doesn't put in green peppers!) and the summery berry salad in summer is my favorite summer item.

The beef a roo at this location is no longer open. I find other beef a roo's to be expensive. The prices are more along the lines of culvers then McDonald's. But culvers blows this place away hands down.

Really expensive and no better than Wendy's or Arby's...everything is ala carte and they charge you a premium for it. However, you do get a mint to end your meal!

but they arent my favorite... just wanted to try something different, but i guess it wasnt what i was expecting, maybe it was because they had nothing but young kids working here that didnt have a clue what they were doing? hope that if i ever come here again i get better service

This was a really good beef a roo, Route 66 themed, and two months ago it was announced it wasn't renewing it's lease with Road Ranger. I am so very disappointed! They had great salads and soups not to mention their sandwiches. The next closest is 15 miles south! Geez

First, this is a road trip type of a burger place. It is not fine dining but they have nice formica tables with chrome legs that sort of remind you of the old days. My five star review is in the context of burger places, not to say that it is a five-star place in the universe of all dining... More
