This is a place I've gone to for many many years. No one else does frosted mugs. And, the nostalgia of the baby mugs.

This place may not look like much but the burgers and old fashioned root beer floats are outstanding. We stop here every time we go through KC

Loose meat sandwiches and root beer in a frosty mug! And wavy cut French fries my favorite! Super wizard burger is my favorite.

It is small but this is truly a DRIVE-IN! You drive up, park look at the big outdoor menu. The gal comes up to your vehicle with the change maker on her waist and order slip. You order just like you did with A&W years ago. Fun, convenient and pretty good Root Beer! The Burgers are loose meat burgers. Very interesting but good! BBQ Beef was hot and flavorful. Style is Fun, Fast Food. Tired of the old cheapy standard archs and crowns? Go Here. lift up your window, let them serve you and have fun eating in your vehicle!
