A Favorite For Generations

Why all the love? We make your food fresh as you order it! We use only the best products to ensure our customers enjoy the best quality food we can serve. We believe we have the best coney you will ever taste. Pair that with homemade rootbeer made with 100% cane sugar and an order of fresh-cut french fries, and you've got yourself a meal you'll love!

Our History

The business was opened by Barb and Bob Fordyce in 1957 as an A&W Rootbeer Stand. It had a very limited menu consisting of hot dogs, shredded chicken sandwiches, popcorn, Jones' potato chips, homemade rootbeer, and orange drink.

In 1969 Joann and Bud Bemiller bought the business and ran until 1984, when they sold it to their son Steve and his wife Deb. In 1985 the A&W franchise was dropped, and Ashland-Wooster Drive-In was born, with the addition of the drive-thru, many new menu items, and a new look.

Steve Bemiller sold the business to Mindi White and Frank Keener in 2021.  We are excited to continue providing the excellent food that the community has come to love.  Our goals are to provide a great place to work for our employees and to give our clients the best customer service possible.  


We offer 8 different kinds of sandwiches, over 10 different kinds of side orders, 5 dinners, a variety soft drinks (including our delicious homemade rootbeer), milkshakes, and hand dipped floats.
