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

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
