    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!

    If you like root beer, do not miss the root beer float. Otherwise, snag a chocolate milkshake.

    Rude service but nice throwback location. No free refills or credit cards taken, also shady part of town, won't return

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