The hamburgers are all beef patties, so no soy or fillers. The wait staff are inexperienced and poorly trained- we observed an argument between the manager and wait staff while there- unacceptable.

The seating area is pleasant, and the food comes out fast. The fries are great, the pork tenderloin okay, and the root beer float is my very favorite thing. I especially appreciate that they bring around pitchers of root beer for free refills.

This restaurant serves the best burgers, sandwiches, fries and root beer. The service is very fast and there is continuous refilling of root beer mugs. Great buns, too. Very fresh.

Had breakfast here, nothing out of ordinary. Small selection and not very friendly staff. No worries but nothing to remember.

Can't beat an old time drive up like the old days, but inside dining is available. Root beer always rates a 4 to 5 and only place I know of to get an old time coney dog.

This is like an old time A & W. Same teen burgers, root beer floats etc, that they served when I was a kid. We always go here at once when we are in Faribault. They even still have car hop service.
