Hoped to enjoy some root beer in our travels this weekend but the sign is down and there was a note on the door thanking folks for many years of support.

Four stars for reliable fast food that the kids really love. It's not spectacular but always satisfying in a simple, uncomplicated way!

Girls enjoyed the experience of cooked to order chicken fingers and the ice cold root beer. Service was prompt, courteous and our orders were correct.

Popped in for a treat after the beach!! Kids enjoyed root beer floats and orange cream floats, chicken tenders and fries. Fun outdoor seating and walk up window to order. Delicious soft serve ice cream cones...with "jimmies" aka sprinkles!

This place is definitely old, but the employees make sure to keep it extra clean. The burgers are subpar at best but root beer float is worth a trip.

Amazing american cuisine- burgers and hot dogs, great root beer, curly and regular fries. Its a must go for good american food while on the cape. Relatively cheap as well. Must go!

We visit every summer best root beer. Not bad food for the price. Since most eateries on the cape are high priced.

Went here with my two kids and enjoyed the usual fare: burgers, hot dogs, fries, and - of course - A&W root beer in large, thick glass mugs that were pre-frosted making the drink absolutely delicious. Of course, it is fast food, so quality is on that level, but after bumper boats or go-karts, this is the place to go... More
