Great Milkshakes!!!

Good cheeseburgers, but I'd rather have just the milkshakes! We came by after walking the tunnel and had lunch here. Cheeseburgers were average, but the milkshake was awesome. I got the orange creamcicle one.

Stopped by to get lunch. I had a coupon and thought it would be a good budget friendly lunch. I ordered 2 kids chicken strips meal with shakes and the total with the coupon was still $19! WTH! I ended up scratching lunch and just got a chocolate milkshake for my son since I already promised it to him. My... More

It's a family owed business that brings back found memories of my youth. Losts of 60's memorabilia on display. If you happy to visit on a summer weeken there maybe a car show of vintage cards. Lots of the help is younger kids so service can be slow, but just ask for help. Menu has lots of options that can... More

Horrible food that is outrageously over priced! God help you if you need customer service as it is nonexistent and beyond rude. The owner obviously dosent care how his staff treats customers as it has been this way for over a year and a half. I've eaten here a few times as my kids like the root beer. But each... More

Pricy burgers for fast food- nothing special in terms of the food and the rootbeer is none too special but $7.00 a glass. The car shows and décor are memorable. For some stupid reason they do not allow dogs in the outside seating area. That is disappointing. Really nothing special here but worth a visit if you really like root... More

I have been there a few times over the years. Never had anytrhing bad. yes it isn't the same as they where back in the chain days. heck there are no others left. They still have the original root beer from the days and yes on sunny days it can be a madhouse in that place.

I have driven past this landmark for decades, and used to stop when in my younger days. Decided to pop in on a whim, hoping for a nice memory of youth. It was not anything like I recalled. It was VERY BUSY, which is great for them. But could have used more staff. I was remembering the old days of... More

Distressingly bad even for junk 'food.' I ordered a root beer freeze (that's a float blended together) for a staggering $6+ and was served a creamy flavorless goop covered with a huge pile of whipped topping that they called cream (it;s not) and that tastes like plasticene. Sugar and fillers. Could not really taste any rootbeer, just goop. Given the... More

We discovered this place while driving around looking for a post office. As soon as we saw this restaurant we knew we had to stop. We're glad we did. The burgers were good, hot and large. The fries were tasty and hot too. The place is a museum of car "stuff"; including engines. We weren't there for a car show... More

If you are old enough to remember drive ins, good creamy root beer, and the kinda hamburger that has the juices running down your arm then you will like this restaurant. Lots and lots of local memorabilia on the walls. A 426 Hemi on an engine stand in the middle of the dinning room. What more could a motor-head want?
