Weren’t ice cream floats the best thing when you were a kid? Especially when you got crazy, and went for the orange soda instead of the usual root beer. Wyler Road lets you relive the childlike glee of a perfectly foamy, creamy, bubbly float, filling a huge soda-shop glass with a scoop of ice cream and root beer, black cherry, or, yes, orange soda. Slurp it up alongside one of their giant sandwiches, which include riffs on childhood favorites like the house-made sloppy joe (on a toasted challah brioche) or ham & cheese (on raisin walnut toast). It’s a nostalgia trip that won’t leave you hungry.
