An old time 1950-60s motif with good ole rock'n roll blaring from an outdoor speakers. Food - large servings and my wife and I ordered one rootbeer float and a regular sandwich. This order was enough to feed two of us. The rootbeer float was served in a frosted jug and it was very good. We chose to seat outdoors... More

We went there tonight with my brother and our two son's....we split a burger each (2 dollar extra charge to split), got a couple of small root beers, the bill was about $40 dollars. THIS PLACE IS RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED! If we each ate a burger, the total bill for a few hamburgers would have been $70, for four people. We... More

So 2 burgers with onion rings a Coke and milkshake came to 40 bucks. Had my burger come with a fresh seasoned patty and hot onion rings I could almost except the price but that isn't the case. Patty was dry with no seasoning and not made to order the onion rings were warm at best. The milkshake was tastey... More

Cool atmosphere but food is really overpriced and only ok. Fun to go sit on the patio for root beer floats and shakes in summer but again, very expensive. Cash only is annoying. Too many other good options in Issaquah, not likely to go back.

Jose and his crew are friendly and efficient. They make you feel like family. He honors A&W tradition with the best root beer and is the last XXX drive in in the country. Burgers are huge and juicy, great "long dogs" and of course the best fountain root beer in the world. Many auto collectables decorate every inch of wall... More

XXX is always the place to see fun and cool cars. They frequently have car shows, if you're just out for a Sunday drive, stop on in and have a rootbeer float. Their food is expensive and a bit slow, but you're there for the experience, not the chow.

This is a fun place to visit and the food is OK, but the prices are outrageous. I love all the cool stuff on the walls, but I am not sure the people who run the place really want to be serving customers.

We visit the Issaquah area every two years to visit family and Triple XXX was a tradition until after our visit tonight. They were always pricy, but it is now simply not worth the cost. The burger patties were obviously cooked in advance, as they were pre-formed patties, dry, and not even hot. The onion rings were good, but came... More

Great greasy spoon. Everything very good but way too pricey. This place is fun for a oner. If you don't have heart issues maybe a twosy. Great service and fun to look at the memorabilia. The family will love all there is to see
