It’s an all-American combo - a root beer float and a burger. Aside from The Fix’s amazing juicy burger selection (one of the best in Mass) they also serve up traditional milkshakes and sodas, with a twist. On our list is the Spiked Root Beer Float, that takes Journeyman Featherbone Bourbon (a handmade, organic black label whisky made in the midwest,) bitters, and root beer syrup then tops it with off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an amazing mix of flavors and textures… with a punch.
