The standard A & W menu tastes even better with table service in a 50's atmosphere. Fun! The mushroom and onion burger is delicious, and the onion rings were crispy and tasty.

This was as close to the good old fashioned drive-ins as I have been to in quite some time! I was extremely happy to see the root beer in the big glass mugs instead of paper/plastic cups!! The food was good!

I had the Fish sandwich special. A little too much bun and way too much mayo that made it hard to eat, it was so slippery. Root Beer was great. Lots of parking around the building.

This place takes me back. The root beer still tastes great! This is top rung for fast food. Fun for the family and fair prices. The location can be a bit noisy being right off the highway. Otherwise it's a wonderful place to stop.
