The Triple XXX Root Beer Drive-in is a famous landmark eatery in the Pacific Northwest. The first Triple XXX Root Beer location opened in 1930 in Renton, WA. This location in Issaquah, WA is the only one remaining that still features the barrel.

According to Issaquah History Online, this Triple XXX Root Beer opened at this location at 98 NE Gilman Blvd in 1968 after being moved from its originally location for a car dealership parking lot. Today there only two XXX Root Beer locations still in business. The other Triple XXX Root Beer location in West Lafayette, IN does not feature the root beer barrel sign.
