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

Car show in progress and a sunny day, so it was incredibly busy. We sat outside to people watch. My husband said, "they forgot the tartar sauce I ordered" and I volunteered to go get it. I asked a young girl behind the counter and she said, "that will be .35 cents". I explained we had already paid and it... More

I'm glad I work down the street from this great spot. The food is great and the atmosphere is perfect to take me back to worked on cars and went for root beer.

We participated in a vintage travel trailer rally/show at the Triple XXX the first weekend of May. This establishment sponsors car/motorcycle shows, club meets and so on every week, maybe more often. They have volunteer staff just to organize all this. They really support these communities. If you want to have your car/bike club meet just contact them. The interior... More

Went on a Friday night with the kids. You grab menus and seat yourself. Tons to see! A fun retro atmosphere, but the service is inattentive. Took a long time before someone would take our orders. Food came fast. Another long time before we got our check, and had to take it to the cashier to pay. Food portions are... More

XXX is a feast for the eyes--car and singer memorabilia is plastered on all the walls and even the ceiling! The hamburgers are top-rated and, if you have the stomach for it, try the jumbo. It's huge! The rootbeer is truly the best in the world! It's a totally different experience when the back parking lot is filled with an... More

Triple X root beer syrup is owned by Coca Cola, but there are only 2 drive-ins left in existence, Issaquah, Washington and West Lafayette, Indiana. These drive-ins started in the 1930s and this family owned and run drive-in hosts up to 35/40 car shows per year. Hugely popular, decent to really good food and do try the 1930 original recipe...

We love XXX. Their food is always good and the atmosphere is fun. I love taking my kids there to share root beer floats.
