The burgers are pretty good. I like that they have added the option of a 7 grain bun. The root beer in the frosted glass is something that I will never get tired of.

They are clean and tidy, and get special request orders done pretty quick. I've ordered from them many times, and never once had a mistake! That's impressive

The staff at this A&W are very friendly and make it a pleasant fast food experience. The burgers were good and cooked fresh. The root beer was classic. Clean restaurant. At peak times the traffic at the 4-way stop is crazy and getting in and out can be a challenge.

Great food and service by all the staff and the menu had lots to get excited about. Many of the dishes are well worth the money and you get a lot

Very good burgers, poutine and fries were just average, the gravy is not right for poutine. But, nothing beats the root beer and my husband raves about it! Still served in a chilled glass and very creamy. The staff are all friendly and the restaurant is clean. Very nice, warm atmosphere in here.

A & W has some of the tastiest burgers and good choice of options. Of all the fast food restaurants, their breakfasts are still the best, especially the breakfast sandwiches.

We haven't been to an A&W for some time and we were very pleased with the breakfast sandwiches and hash browns. They did forget the straws and the coffee was not very good but the food made up for it.

This A&W is in a league of it's own. They're staff are super friendly, quick and accurate and have all been there for years. They're appreciative for the business and the pride in which they make the product is obvious. By far it's the best fast food joint around.

Great prize, great food, fast food at the right price. These restaurants are located throughout Canada they serve a much better version of a McDonald's menu at a much better price.

If you are looking for a quick drive through burger you can get a good one at A & W, couple it with their onion rings and a cold Root Beer and your belly will be smiling at you. Better than the other fast food burger alternatives as you are driving down the road!
