We chose 1pm on the Saturday afternoon that the Car Show was in town and the lawn mower races were being held on the street right in front of the A&W for our visit. That was NOT great planning. But A&W had apparently planned ahead and they were fabulous! We got a table instantly - a nice big one for... More

Very good burgers, and expanded menu that includes a variety, like chicken tenders. The staff is very friendly. They keep the place very clean. Good value.

I had a chocolate shake but the grand child managed to get most of it. My wife had a root beer which she much enjoyed. The little guy had a hot dog which he was thrilled with. I hadn't been to an A&Win a long time. I'll have to find one closer to where I live.

We grew up with this A&W so always fun to return. Nothing beats the Root Beer! Decor is classic 50's and 60's.

We went into here to get a root beer off the fountain and this did not disappoint. It was so sweet and good, well worth the trip.

Classic Drive In just like you remember from back in the day. Simple Drive in fair and friendly servers. What makes this place stand out is the classic car cruise every Thursday night throughout the summer. Followed with the cars parking at A&W with classic rock music from the 50's and 60's. Also a great place to take the kids... More
