I like the quick burger and the choice of sides, a salard option is not available though. Pretty good service here.

It's a fast food joint, right? What do you expect to be served in such a place? Mediocre at best, right? Right? Wrong. Time and again, when we've been in here, it's definitely a cut above your regular fast food fare. Last time we were in, we had the Steakhouse Teen burger and yam fries. I can't remember the last...

Clean establishment. Polite, helpful, friendly staff. Consistently good food. Favourites are BLT and teen. Eat in, or, drive thru and take it to the view point...now that's what I call an afternoon well spent.

They have a wonderful breakfast and whenever I feel like a burger and fries then it must be A&W for sure! The staff are pleasant, it is clean and there are even papers to read! I order my fries to be fresh and even though I have to wait....ooooh it is so worth it.....as they are so much better!

Many locals visit each morning to enjoy coffee and breakfast and the social atmosphere. Good staff but the same food fare you will find in any other A&W.

Teen Burgers were $3.00 on the 27th in honour of Black Friday. Food was excellent, Chicken Deluxe and no bun with seeds! Root beer shake could use more root beer flavour. Service was quick and you didn't have to stand to wait nor go up for your order. You were given a number and it was brought to your table.
