Stewart's Root Beer

When I was growing up my dad used to take me to Stewart's Root Beer to "eat on the window" (aka tray service). I loved the novelty of eating in the car, the frosty mug of root beer and the fantastic burger and fries. SP and I found ourselves near a Stewart's today (not the one linked above, that's just the only one with a Web site) so we stopped for lunch. We both ordered a double California cheeseburger, along with fries and onion rings:

I love the fries here because they actually taste like potato:

... and the onion rings are crispy and crunchy:

The burgers are on the small side here, but a double is perfect:

The California is served with lots of lettuce, a thick slice of tomato, thin slices of raw onion and a smear of mayo, along with plenty of melty, gooey cheese:

No meal at a Stewart's would be complete without a frosty mug of root beer:

This Stewart's has only outside seating so it's seasonal. I love that I can go somewhere I went with my father over 15 years ago and everything is exactly the same.

Pin It!


  1. That looks delish, and it is so great that you have that continuity from going there with your dad-that can make the most ordinary food extraordinary!

  2. Deborah - It's a great place and I love that something from my childhood is still around today.

  3. What a great treat! I'm envious. We have nothing like that around -- at least not the old-fashioned variety!

  4. My Dad loves Stewart's pop! (OK, I think you guys call it 'soda'). I had no idea that Stewart's was actually a place, not just a pop. Thanks!
