Eat here one or two times a week and is always good. Love the burgers, fries, and hot dogs. Service is always good.

I visited this place because I had kept hearing people talk about it. My burger was average. The onion rings were straight out of a bag. The root beer was good tho.

Stopped in and had a chili dog and fries. Loved the chili!!!! I could have eaten it with a spoon, and the fries were nice and crispy. Definitely a new stop on our trips to Tennessee!

We got there at 11:30 on a Monday. Service was immediate and attentive. Our car hop was a delight! Her name was Joy and she treated you like a local, very welcoming. All the others appeared to be smiling. There is no sign, so watch for the drive-in surrounded by cars. The menu is a bit more diverse than just... More

Root beer is awesome! They offered a little taste first since this is homemade root beer. We got them as floats. Chili dogs were great and the flavor of the sauce was really good! Cheeseburgers were good too! Loved the fries and onion rings! This place is seasonal. You eat in your car. A lady comes to take your order... More

Wow! I found a parking space! The place was packed, but the carhop was at my window instantaeously. I ordered a regular hot dog (not the foot long) and she asked me, "With everything?" I said, "Yes, why not?" I also ordered a rootbeer and it came in a big, frosty mug! I'm not sure - I probably should have... More

Best root beer i've ever had. Food is not bad either. Visit during the cooler months though. Get very warm in the summer time, while waiting for food and drink.

They work so hard-especially the first week the place is open---->it's ALWAYS packed! I recommend a rootbeer float and footlong chili bun!!! Oh, and their onion... More

The root beer stand is a really amazing experience. You feel like you are going back in time to a simpler time, and the food is delicious. I wish there were more drive-ins and that they could be open all year!! One of my favorite restaurants in the area!
