As soon as I saw the spinning mug of root beer from the highway, I knew I had to stop there. So we did, after a long day exploring Yellowstone, that was the perfect comfort food. Nothing crazy, and we were too full to enjoy...More

We saw the big root beer mug, and the place appeared to be a drive in, so we turned around and went back. We went inside, and it was like stepping back into the 60s. Great friendly service. We ordered root beer float and huckleberry...More

Have been coming here for more years than I care the admit. The ice cream treats and the root beer in a frosty glass mug. Gotta love the Husky Burger also. So the building has always been adequate but the real draw is the old-fashioned...More

Frostop Dive-In has been operating on Hwy 20 in Ashton, Idaho for over 40 years. Our food is excellent, our menu is extensive, and our prices are fair. The Frostop was founded in 1965 by Leland Garner. He built an addition two years later. He sold it in 1973 to Jerald Crittenden from Ashton and two men from St.Anthony. They called it Mug Jugs. Then in 1974 Andre Bollaerts from Redondo Beach, California bought it and sold it to George Nedrow and associates, who ran the business until David and Ray Lalonde purchased it in 1975 and it became Frostop once again, with the Frostop franchise being retained. Three years later, in 1978, the W.D. Chatterton family from Pocatello bought Frostop from the Lalondes and retained ownership until 1994, when they sold it to Roger Weber. After 42 years of serving Ashton the Frostop has once again changed owners with Wayne and Hannah McCausey taking over from Roger in 2007. We have enjoyed owning the Frostop and raising our little family here in Ashton, Idaho. Wayne was born and raised here. Hannah was born and raised in Homedale and Wilder, Id. We both were raised in the country and our raising our family in the country just outside of Ashton. We have two kids Dalyn & Kyra, they are still in school here at North Fremont. Our Family has become stronger and plan to be here for a long, long time. We built our home in 2004 and bought the Frostop in 2007 and now we have dug our roots in deep. Thanks for your support and come back again soon!!
