Worst A&W I've been to. Came for fast food and spent over 10 minutes waiting then had to go back in because the order was wrong. Drive from Durham to Trenton on a weekly basis and will never stop here again. My lettuce wrapped burger...More

Nothing like a A & W Root Beer in a cold Glass MUG along with a Pappa, Mumma or Teen Burger. Always a great place, just like I remember going there many times over the Last 55 years. O'H that root beer, OOOOOH SO GOOOOD.

A great little burger hangout. Great Mugs of Root Beer (A&W Brand). Check out the chicken as well. Recently Built site with the more modern outlook.

Food is good but apparently they do not turn their heat on until after 11am. If you are going for breakfast wear your snowsuit. With frost all over the ground the building was a dead cold 1 degree! Not comfortable for anyone!

Went in for two mama burgers and fries. Couldn't help notice the 'could care less' attitude of the employees. Not friendly at all. Food was barely satisfactory.

Good service as always and great food. This food chain has never let us down and it was very close to the motel we stayed at.
