My wife wanted to visit this place for months for the root beer ( I guess she was craving it when we was pregnant). Little did we know that they served an extensive diner menu. The service can be worked on. The burgers and sandwiches...More

This place had awesome collectibles everywhere inside and everywhere. You can grab a menu sit down and a waiter will get to you. It took about 10min for someone to acknowledge our existence. The place was not busy at all during this time. Tables were...More

The sign on the door says it all—“nothing here is good for you” but dang is it delicious! The campiness of the clutter, the over-the-top diner menu, and the root beer just make the XXX experience one not to miss. The philly steak is awesome!...More

Wow, where do you start, the whole restaurant is a museum of Americana of the 50's. The root beer is one of a kind and the food is outstanding.

If your childhood included tall, frosty mugs of root beer and root beer floats, you’ll love this place! The homemade root beer is excellent! Burgers, patty melts, fries, onion rings and all the other traditional fixings are also top quality.
