I don't know where everyone is getting there great hot dogs at but they sure aren't here. The buns are steamed to much and the hot dogs have stayed in the water to long. I'll get my dogs somewhere else

This place is adorable, such a good old fashion outting. Really good homemade root beer, and everything is so cheap!

I go to the Root Beer Stand as soon as it opens every year. The food is always consistent, and there is something so perfectly nostalgic about this drive in. I'm not even a fan of root beer, and I still get it when I go, that's how good it really is. Remember though that it's cash only, but really you can get a couple hot dogs and a root beer for less than 7 bucks.

I've been eating hot dogs and root beer at The Root Beer Stand since I was in High School (Old Central High on Westnedge Ave - Class of '60).

Nothing has changed - they remain delicious! I now live in Lansing and my wife and I drive to Kazoo several times each summer for our "fix".

Hurry and go there while they're still around. They started out with 5 locations (as A&W) - now only two remain.
