This is a 50s diner on steroids. There was loads of memorabilia hanging all over the place and a Buddy Holly tour bus parked outside. The food was good. The malted was rich and authentic. The root beer was straight out of my childhood. Great nostalgia for us "older" folks.

We usually try to eat fairly healthy and thus avoid this sort of outing. After a weekend camping and on a hot day, we decided it would be a fun stop. I had planned on only having one of their frosted mugs of root beer and a bite or two at most of my wife's vegie burger. After the first... More

Came on a very busy day; the motorcycle rally in July. Nice that they accommodate such a large group. Wonder if the prices are high like this on other days. Very good food though. Yummy old fashioned burgers, fries and shakes. Though they have large portions for the big eater - see the picture.

I went here on the advice of some friends, saying that they had amazing root beer floats. However this was not the case they used some whatever tasting root beer, added ice cream as one would expect and then put whip cream all over it. Wasn't sure what the deal with the whip cream was. I would say that the... More

First off, I am not picky and have never wrote a review of a restaurant before but my horrible experience at this dump prompted a review. Me and my two kids went here as we were driving by. We ordered three food items, a cheeseburger, chicken strips and a philly. All of us were very hungry. I can tell you... More

Went to XXX today. It's a nice place on a sunny day and the food is good. Root beer is good. But, they have a policy to charge two more dollars if you end up splitting your meal with someone else. So, at $11 for a burger and $4 for onion rings, they charged me $2 more to eat the... More

We were coming back from a trip to Snow Lake and were hungry, stopped in and really enjoyed sitting outside. My son had a big strawberry shake with a chicken philly cheese sandwich. I had the patty melt with onion rings. The iced tea was in a big frosty mug.....wonderful! They give you alot of food and the service was... More

Can't tell you how happy we are to have found THIS place! XXX Rootbeer is so kitschy and crazy. They let you know immediately that you don't go there for healthy dining. . but instead it's unbelievable hamburgers, hotdogs, ice cream and of course. . . ROOTBEER FLOATS! The decor is a stitch. . . .1950s type decor plastered all... More

This mom and pop restaurant (truly a family run place) is a great place to people watch, look at cars (car shows on the weekends) get a ice cream cone, rootbeer float, burger or even shrimp basket. The rootbeer is to die for and comes in a frosted mug. Although the prices can seem a little high it is well... More

Having lived in Seattle all my life, I've driven up and down I-90 more times than I can count. As long as I can remember, the giant orange XXX Root Beer sign lurked just off the freeway. Driving past, yet never stopping. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to correct that error and try what was very clearly a... More
