    The burger menu alone offers more than a dozen options, including a bison burger, a Kobe burger and a chili Frito burger. Wash it all down with a Fitz's root beer. Read more

    Best selection of sodas and drinks ever. I love Fitz's cream soda. So amazing. Great food as well. Servers are fun. I like going at night when the upstairs bar is for adults only

    I recommend the Buffalo Chicken Wrap! It is delicious and they slice it into five pieces so its easy to eat. We had great service despite the many negative tips on here. We had Poquito ask for him!

    Jason makes the best root beer floats. He also gives excellent, five-star service. Ask for Jason as your server. What a great restaurant, with wonderful food, and notorious root beer.

    The floats came out with our meals. By the time we were done eating most of the float was melted. Order the float after you're done with your meal or split the float for a smaller portion.
