Clean establishment with great service. This restaurant caters to many local events, so beware of potential crowds. The burgers are decent, but HUGE! One burger fed our whole family. The shakes are EPIC. All of the root beer floats, malts and shakes are large and in charge. Only real... read more

I love the classic car scene here. The vibe is great, you can indulge in your nostalgia. Pro tip - cash only but there is an ATM inside. Service was not excellent this time around, it was somewhat slow and inaccurate in terms of what was ordered. The shakes are OK, I would argue their froyo and cheap canned cream... More

XXX is always a fun place, especially for a birthday celebration. The car shows are interesting and well attended. And as they say "Nothing you eat here is good for you" but everything fulfills a guilty pleasure and heck once in awhile you have to let go.

Fun atmosphere, great root beer floats, but the food is lacking. A little on the greasy side, and not that good.

Clean establishment with great service. This restaurant caters to many local events, so beware of potential crowds. The burgers are decent, but HUGE! One burger fed our whole family. The shakes are EPIC. All of the root beer floats, malts and shakes are large and in charge. Only real icecream. Recommended this venue for traveling families or group birthday parties.

The food was great. I was disappointed that my 9 lb dog wasn't allowed to sit with us on the patio. One of the review I read talked about the car shows they have there and to bring your dog cause they could sit with you on the outside patio, maybe that is only allowed on car show days. Thus...

It's been over 30 years since visiting a XXX Root Beer restaurant. Since then, appetites have changed. But, to try something different we went to this XXX. Glad we did, just to see something different. Their sign warning that "Nothing on the Menu Is Good for You" is certainly truth in advertising. Food is average, but representative of the 50's...

A rare find indeed. Here is this building that looks like a three story root beer keg with XXX Root Beer across its face. When you pull up it isn't far fetched to see a car club parked in the lot showing off their prize vehicles. When you go in the front door it is like you returned to the... More

I used to love this place but they have very poor business practices. They don't take the Adventure coupon if you're sharing. We can never use it because their portions are too big not to share. In my opinion it's a cop out to not have to let people use the coupons. Many other places allow the use of those... More

Despite the name, XXX Rootbeer is not an adults-only root beer stand! :-) Bring the kids! It is pretty much an institution in Issaquah. While it is basically a mom-and-pop hamburger joint, it has tons of atmosphere, and it will take you back to the 50's and 60's. XXX serves the largest hamburger I have ever seen. My son and... More

Always a fun spot to eat and remember the "good old days". Yummy root beer floats! Fun to see cool cars.
