Reviews for The Rootbeer Stand

The Rootbeer Stand offers great dessert treats at good prices, they also offer other tasty food too!Whether you dine in, drive in, or carry out you will be pleased with your experience. The staff is kind, friendly, and helpful. The restaurant is clean and has plenty of room for it's size.They are conveniently located if you are driving across the state or visiting the local parks.

Just like many others, we came here after some hiking at Starved Rock. Based upon Google reviews, this place sounded good on screen but was we were majorly disappointed. I should have been more skeptical after quickly looking at the Yelp reviews but I like trying and supporting local places. We had a party of 10 (2 adults and 6 kids under the age of 12) and ordered bacon cheeseburgers, double cheeseburgers, a super deluxe cheeseburger, mini corn dogs, 2 large fries, 1 cheese full review

Great nostalgic place. They did awesome with parking and bringing food to your car with the old fashioned menu box. Do wish they had kids meal options and also wish they accepted credit cards and not make you use an ATM machine. Food was descent but not super special or different, nothing to brag about. Root Beer seemed a bit warm and had no ice, not much carbonation. But we had fun as a family and kids loved the Grilled Cheese.
