    As a kid, my family used to buy our Christmas tree from that Coits.

    Then get the rare treat of a frosty mug of their root beer.

    My dad did the same thing and we continued the tradition when we were kids until they shut Coits down.

    Ugh hard to look at. I grew up out by Shawnee so family trips into the city were a pretty big deal when I was a kid and we'd always ask to go to Coit's. Chili Cheese Coney, Those tater rounds and a frosty root beer mug. Really sucks.

    Yeah, I apparently need to get into the car wash, storage locker, Little Caesar's, nail salon, or donut business, those seem to be going up all over the place, and apparently making money since they keep building the damn things like crazy...

    I think you guys are hanging on to memories & not what the actual product provided. Coits was downright disgusting, and served small portions at high prices. The root beer was even bad. There is a definitive reason why it went out of business, and that is because it sucked.

    I ate Coits more than my fare share as a kid, but when I got it when I was older it made my stomach sick even though I was barely able to get it past my mouth.

    I can say the last time I ate there a number of years ago the food was terrible and the property was really shabby.

    Root beer was great, though.

    We lived by the Portland location from 86 to 93 and the food was fine then - not great but plenty good to frequent for breakfast, a burger, hot dog or whatever on the weekend. It did go downhill for sure in the years approaching it's closing. Still an iconic place in my opinion and my memories of it are very positive.

    What a great idea! Especially with the temperatures for this year's fair - perfect combo.
    Those saying Coit's root beer was not good must not be root beer lovers. Toward the end, it was about the only thing that was still good as always. They will do well with a food truck with their hot dogs and root beer.

    The only thing I miss other than the places themselves is the root beer.

    If they could keep that alive through a food truck, I'd be very happy.

    Coit's is alive and well once more, in food truck form! They post where they are going to be on Facebook and Twitter. I caught up with them at NW 39th and Tulsa today, and man, talk about nostalgia... Even the new OKC Blazers were there handing out free tickets!

    And yes, I had a root beer!
