Hennings Root Beer Stand
One burger was not enough...
One day after hitting up L&Ms for lunch, we visited Henning's Root Beer Stand in Hoopeston. (411 S Dixie Hwy)
Henning's has everything you would expect from a root beer stand
Homemade root beer...
Hamburgers and fries....
And a telephone to "phone in" in your order.
Sufficiently awkward and nerve racking when the whole restaurant can hear you be indecisive.
However, I did settle for a grilled chicken sandwich. Nothing too fancy.
Richie devoured his Ranch burger and fries
and a root beer or two.
It's what A&W tries to, but ultimately fails to be. Hometown deliciousosity. that's not a word. it's a state of being.
