XXX

This week, we went to the Triple XXX Rootbeet Drive-in. It's a 1950's based burger join just down the hill from my house. The burgers are huge and greasy. So greasy, in fact, that I can't eat them. I ate one a couple years ago and felt sick. But they have the BEST milkshakes. So... every once in a while I go down there and get the chicken strips and a milkshake.

Bennett loved it, because there was SO much to look at. Bright lights and stuff all over the walls. It was a fun night! It was pretty dark in there, so... these photos are the best I could do! :)

I feel the same way about almost all burgers lol, I dont eat red meat often anyway because I often feel sick afterwards.

That place looks so fun! I am always down for a good milkshake. I also crave those greasy burgers a lot, but after a few bites I always feel sick and have to stop eating... Hope you are having a great weekend!

When my Sister was pregnant the first time all she wanted was burgers so we had XXX dates. Now she's gluten free so we haven't been this pregnancy. This baby wants chocolate anyway!

Their milkshakes are soo good!
