Reviews for The Root Beer Stand

It's just okay. People rave about this place more for the nostalgia than anything else. I mean if I break down a hot dog it isn't even high quality meat. The buns are basic and half the time they are soggy and they just mince up the most plain onions you can imagine. They don't even serve french fries here.

Taste waaaaay better than it looks, trust me. If you haven't had a root beer float before. I hadn't either before this. I'd chewed on sassafras and called it good. But I'm glad I gave it a try. Especially here, where root beer floats are their specialty. The prices are fairly cheap, they make it fast, and it's all car-side service. No need to get up and head to a window, door, or screen. They do have other drinks if you don't like root beer. Also, full review
We decided to stop here between some fun activities for a break and a snack. We ordered root beer floats, popcorn, and a cheese dog. It's an old fashioned style drive up. The servers were not on skates, but that's not an issue! The gal we had come to our car was very pleasant, cheery, and helpful! She made some recommendations for us. The root beer floats were good. The popcorn was really good and I'm a popcorn snob. The hot dogs weren't anything special or to write home about, full review
