"The first Frostop Root Beer stand opened in Springfield, OH in 1926. The company expanded nationwide, reaching over 100 locations by 1958".-- At the time if you wanted to hang out or take your girl for a bite you went to the Frostop Drive In ! A tray on the window, big frosty glass mug of cold rootbeer and the best chili dog I ever ate... so good that I don't know what else was on the menu, I never looked. The best cars in town were there and the cutest girls.....

Grand Rapids, Minnesota : )
In the Pacific NW we had A&W Root Beer, along with another chain called XXX Root Beer. Both had good food and carhops. Youth is wasted on the young.
I remember one on the south side of Indianapolis. When the chain went out of business, the owner kept the stand open under the name “FROSTO”.
In NJ we had Stewart’s Rootbeer. Best floats ever. In the Northwest, Arctic Circle.
“Frosto” thats good, when the Frostop here closed a Baker bought the building, had the handle of the giant mug removed and painted it to look like a giant birtday cake....
I loved those root beer places.
I stop there every time I’m in Huntington for business.
Sorry....A & W rules root beer & coney dog drive-ups.
