Ok so I broke my rule about no chain restaurants. Well in my defense it was an old style A&W Drive-in. On a hot day. It really love coney dogs and rootbeer floats. I caved ok! So we stopped at a place in Montana before getting to Glacier National Park.
This location had the old drive in order speakers and a few other details that made it special. I even met a few fellow Warriors fans. They saw my 2017 NBA Finals hat. Turns out, Tatiana was from the Bay Area too. She was showing her live of the team with her Strength in Numbers tee.
On to my coney dog and rootbeer float, take 2. After leaving Glacier and driving a few hours away, hubby found me another A&W.
This time I added onion rings. Unfortunately this coney dog did not even come close to the first one. Maybe it was because I was so hungry the first time, but it just did not hit the spot. In fact I only took two bites. The float was ok but they put it in a paper cup. Having it in a chilled glass mug is the only way to have it.
It was good, just not great. Breaking “my no chain restaurant” rule was necessary. Don’t judge me.
