— Classic, greasy American food. Most of us crave it at some point.
>> Dayton Dining Classic: The Root Beer Stande is still going strong
So what’s wrong with a little cheesy, cholesterol level-peaking indulgence now and then? We’ve already told you about the Dayton gem that is The Root Beer Stande on Woodman Dr. It’s a classic piece of Americana dining with an impressive menu. But here are five things you have to try when you visit -- though we don’t recommend them all at once.
1.) ’MERICA DOG
It doesn’t get much more patriotic than this. This Nathan’s all-beef dog is served with bacon and nacho cheese, topped with pickle fries on a poppy-seed bun. As you eat this wonder, you’ll realize that nacho cheese and hot dogs were meant for one another.
2.) THE BACON SUPREME
Two beef patties loaded with extra bacon, with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise, all held together with a generous portion of melted cheese. The delicious greasy burger is alive and well in Dayton.
3.) EL DIABLO DOG
Like a little heat with your dog? The El Diablo is your next challenge. It’s a beef dog smothered in chili and onions with jalapenos and ghost pepper cheese. You have to try it just to see if you can handle the fire.
4.) THE DIRTY D
The hot dog your cardiologist warned you about, this features a dog wrapped in bacon and then deep fried. It’s topped with chili, onions, mustard and cheddar cheese. You may feel a little guilt, but you won't care.

5.) ROOT BEER FLOAT
It’s just inconceivable that you would visit The Root Beer Stande and not partake in their signature item. Served in an old-fashioned frosty mug, everything is right with the world while you sip this sweet, refreshing indulgence.

— As we get closer to summer, Sonic Drive-In will have the perfect slush flavor to cool you down: Pickle juice.
Food and Wine reports the fast food restaurant will roll out Pickle Juice Snow Cone slushes starting in June.
Taste testers say it's not as bad as you might think.
It's sweet and tangy.
It's also a great partner with burgers, hot dogs, and tater tots.
Pickle flavored drinks are a trend in the U.S. There are bars serving the juice in shots and even a pickle juice flavored sports drink on the market.
