Root beer as far as the eye can see

My wife and I were in town for the day, and this place came highly recommended by friends. The seating area is small. We were lucky that we didn't have to wait for a table. I had the Cuban, and my wife had mac and cheese with sausage and onion. Very filling portions! We took half of it home. I... More

Everything here tries way too hard - an intentional eclectic look that is more cheesy, the menu with oh so cleverly named items and a wait staff clad in Goodwill specials, torn tights and dreadlocks (our waitress had a nose ring - isn't that a health code violation?). The sandwiches we ordered were greasy and overcooked - mine over seasoned... More

Wanted to take my daughter to lunch and she suggested the Electric Cheetah near Easttown in Grand Rapids. I don't get to that part of town much (can't get there from here) so I told her I was game. Glad I did. Started with a draft root beer. Oh yeah, I could drink two or three of these things and... More

Amazing and generous amount of food. So many choices of root beer too. I came in hungry and left full and with leftovers. Their soup was good and my cuban was delicious! If you get the chance hit this place up!

Located on Wealthy St, this place exudes coolness. Wonderful fresh, innovative menu with many vegetarian options including salads, soups, and sandwiches. Loved the saffron tomato bisque! A combo is only $13 for a generous cup of soup, 1/2 salad, and side of fries (I went with sweet potato- fantastic!) Obviously a local hangout, families, friends, and couples all enjoying the...

Loved this place. Great energy and courteous staff. Visited at dinner time and there was a wait list for a table, but the counter is first come first serve, and so our party of 2 was able to sit down in about 5 minutes! We came because they have 40 kinds of root beer and I thought it would be... More
