I visit for the root beer as it reminds me of my childhood. Food is average as are the prices. Hours had changed and they were only open during the week, closing at 6:30pm, however I guess that was due to the cooler weather.

THEN: When we lived in Washington, my husband and I would occasionally enjoy a hot dog and root beer at the nostalgic drive-in. I especially recall being refreshed by a cold root beer served in an ice cold frosted mug. In the summer it was...More

This is a tradition of the locals. Fun curb side waitresses. Order & eat in your car or at a picnic table. Unique experience for kids. Specializes in homemade root beer & coney sauce. Great fries. Closed Sunday. Open seasonally.

Loved it! Felt like I went back in time. Drive in place and waitress comes to your car. Food was great and root beer float was the best! Cheap prices.

Nothing but pre made frozen food. Zero quality and the people that work there are so incompetent it's ridiculous. Sure has gone down hill

It's like the old time drive in where they come to your car and take your order and hang the tray on your window.

We love to stop here anytime we are in town! Tonight we stopped after going swimming, we got two fish sandwiches, corn dog, onion rings, and fried pickles. We get root beer floats to top it off. They are easily the best I've ever had!

Arrived with the family. The service was prompt, but parking is limited. The root beer is nothing special, it was flat maybe out of CO2? We ordered a few items so we could try a variety of items. The cheeseburger wasn't bad, the coney dog...More
