One only has claims of greatness with their root beer, just love it especially in those frosted mugs. Footl long coney perhaps just a little greasy but still good. Service just a tab bit slower than one would like but we got through it.

It's fast food, but still tasty. I would not go here for a nutritious meal, but that's ok. The kids love eating in the car after going to the beach - service is quick!
