Old fashion drive in food the way it use to be! Don't go if you're on a diet, but otherwise it's worth the fat splurge. Friendly, prompt service. Entertaining and out of the ordinary decor from "the old days"... Good parking, huge menu variety of burgers and sandwiches. Onion rings are great!

Pro tip - visit on a weekend to see the local gearheads show off their sweet rides. Food is tasty but should be served with Lipitor. The shakes are awesome old skool. A great place to visit yesteryear and enjoy classic Americana.

I think the burgers are too expensive, not that good & way overated. Of course if you want to go check out all the classic cars then it's a great place to be. Good rootbeer though And great floats. But a great nostalgic place with good atmosphere.

Driving through Washington State, my husband and I came across this café in Issaquah. Its like walking into the 1960s. You would be hard pressed to find any open wall space as there is money, post cards and pictures tacked to the walls. Jukebox full of oldies music and old diecast muscle cars. The men that were working here were... More

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
