This drive-in is one of my earliest memories, when it was the A&W Root Beer stand. Kids were given tiny frosted mugs of root beer and the hot dogs were awesome. I was thrilled to see it still open, with those great hot dogs and frosted mugs of root beer. Still set in the style of the car-hop coming to... More

Vincents beats them hands down. No fries, no root beer floats Sorry Monroe, you are not #1 in my book.

My family really doesn't care for the chili or root beer here but...everyone has different tastes. I know several people that prefer Monroe's Original over Vince's

The hot dogs are the best, the chili is homemade, one of a kind and better than any I've ever had. The buns are steamed and they are so soft and they melt in your mouth... The drive in, with great service is quick and easy for a lunch or just relax and enjoy with a delicious root beer float... More

The Hot Dogs with chili are super yummy. The root beer was out of this world. A hometown favorite actually worth talking about. Every time we visit my husbands Great Grandmother we go here.

This is an old fashioned type, drive up hot dog stand with a very limited menu. But what they DO offer is the best chili dogs I've ever tasted. I've tried Vince's as well and for my tastes, Monroe's Original is far and away the better dog. The service is prompt and the rootbeer is also great.

Stopped in with my son to try the chili dogs. We purchase the special of 16 dogs for $20.00. Got them home and they looked small but was big on taste. The sauce was really good, not like at a coney island. I would go back there for more.

The best drive in hot dog stand ever. We travel to the area from New Jersey and always make this our first stop. The hotdogs are awesome and the root beer is so great. Always a fun experience! Only hot dogs, potato chips and root beer on the menu.
