Friday Night, we are all pretty tired. I had been to the salon earlier that morning, Darrick went to work, and once I got home I ran a few errands. Once Darrick got home we took a family nap (when everyone gets in the same bed and watches a movie and sleeps off and on) Emma wasn’t sleepy so we turned on the movie Annie (we have watched it almost 4 times already; she loves the dancing and singing). Once we got up we had to get out the house for a little bit but we didn’t really have anywhere to go…
We started riding and we were trying to think of somewhere to pick up some dinner since it was around 7pm!
I thought of Retro Dog, we had passed by a few times and saw it at the Hamburger Festival and always said we were adding it to our list of places to try (we have a mental list going), well Friday was the day…
Located in Cuyahoga Falls, Retro Dog is a family owned and operated restaurant that you can come and dine in, drive in or walk up! They are knowns for the classic menu of hotdogs, hamburgers, homemade custard and shakes. Its family oriented restaurant that is affordable and appeals to all ages!
We ordered the Retro Burger, Double Retro Burger, and the kids Monster Burger. Darrick and I had fries with our burgers and Emma had Applesauce (she LOVES applesauce)!!!
I didn’t get a picture but for the drinks Emma had a Lemonade, and Darrick and I tried the Showcase Sodas (he had cream soda and I had black cherry). The Black Cherry Showcase Soda was so GOOD!!!
I was pretty full from my meal, but in my mind I wanted to order the Salted Carmel Shake…this is on my list for next time!
Next time we go I will also save a lot of room so I can have some dessert! I really wanted a shake but I would have been stuffed past my capacity! LOL!
Overall, my family and I really loved Retro Dog! I think next time we may eat inside, it wasn’t bad sitting outside but I think with the kids getting a little restless in the car we would’ve been more comfortable. However, Friday sitting in the car was the best option because when the 3 year old decided she wanted to have a melt down, it didn’t bother anyone else because we were in the car! HA! Our server for the night was excellent! We made a mistake and turned on our lights on while eating and he came running out ready to help us in whatever we needed, but we didn’t need anything at the time. He was very helpful (hate that I didn’t catch his name)! We had a great time and I know we will be back in the future!
