    My dad used to take me here as a kid, hadn't been back in years. The root beer is still awesome, the fries are still limp and oily, but the burger is better than I remembered it, it was delicious.

    Here, care is not only given to the burgers but is also given to the thin, snap-in-your-mouth fries and homemade root beer (as in on location). Read more

    Best root beer in town! Milkshakes are to die for! CASH ONLY! Drive up in a hot rod if you have one! Great old school place and good burgers too!

    Great root beer in a frosty mug. Cool vintage dinning experience. Bring cash - if you have a credit card then you will be washing dishes.

    Everything's good; even though its a burger joint, the catfish basket is a must-try. Huge pieces of fish with all sorts of side goodies!

    The fries are above average, but the root beer is the real reason to go.
