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.

I like their coney dogs on Tuesday and the fresh root beer hard to beat. They offer other options that are tasty for a drive up.
