Excellent Chili dogs and awesome root beer! Don’t miss this place! Car hops bring your food and hang the tray off your window, just like when some of us were kids! If you like chili dogs, don’t miss this place!

We love stopping in local old style drive in restaurants and enjoying some of the best greasy burgers around. This place will not disappoint, Be sure to get the Dixie burger!

Best Dixie Burger ever! Every spring we can’t wait for the Rootbeer Stand to open to get a Dixie Burger, Chili Bun, onion rings and Rootbeer! It stays crowded all summer but it is always worth the wait!

The Corbin Root Beer Stand, aka the Crabtree Restaurant, is a local legend. Only open part of the year, Corbinites spend all winter drooling over the thoughts of footlong coneys and root beer. One can wear it as a badge of pride to eat here...More

Best onions rings on the planet! Delicious floats. Amazing footlong chili dogs. Crispy crinkle cut fries.

Be prepared to wait as the chili dogs are in high demand. But eating in your car and ordering with a car hop is something that we just don’t get to do anymore. Seasonally open so don’t miss this.

This local drive in place has been in business for as long as I can remember. Well known for their foot long hotdogs & root beer. Food isn't AS good as it use to be,but still decent for the price.

My favorite is the Dixie burger. They also have hamburgers and hot dogs that are great. I miss stopping by here in the winter as they are closed.

You eat in you car . There are a few tables undo a shelter. But they have the best fries, and hamburgers in the word. The fries and Onion rings are to die for. The root beer is wonderful. My husband and I love this...More
