Mac's has made root beer floats for so long, they deliberately swirl the ice cream so you can insert the straw to the bottom without clogging the straw. Only a true Root Beer afficionado can accomplish this ~ one of many of Mac's "claims to fame". The ice cream is pure upstate NY delish ~ so creamy. Nothing compares to a Mac's root beer float, served carside by a hard working server. The low prices are jaw-dropping. Love this place!

Another great dinner at Mac's Drive-In. We didn't have the drive-in experience, but it looks like fun - you pull up and they attach the trays like the old-time drive-in dinner places! We had a club sandwich (very good) and cheese steak sandwich (delicious). The macaroni salad is really good - house made. Great milkshakes and root beer floats as well. Price point - great - cheap eats - we ate for ~$24 with tip (and we had a milkshake too). Nice stop!

We have driven by many times. Decided to sit out front (nice weather) and it was a good decision. Reminds you of a 50's drive in.....we loved it! Portions are plentiful and the Richardson's root beer is served in frosted mugs. Delicious! Will definitely stop again!

Fun old time place for milkshakes, rootbeer floats & baskets. Our group had shrimp, cheeseburger & philly cheesesteak. Shrimp was great, fried were ok at best. Great shakes & floats.
