“Avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

There are too many other places in Thermopolis for a burger and fries to eat here. Place was pretty dirty. I worked in restaurants and if the bathrooms are a disaster you don't even want to see the kitchen! Service was no better and the food was below average.

“As restaurants go, it's a better bowling alley.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

A & W Lanes was not our first choice, and we really should have kept looking. The decor is dated, table tops were sticky and an unfortunate necessity- fly paper strips- dangled unappetizingly from nearly every window.

As for the food, it was in a word, meh. I had the bacon cheeseburger basket with onion rings. The burger was nothing special and my fiancé remarked that the onion rings tasted like they came from a frozen food supplier. He tried their Big Ern burger, a half-pound behemoth that left the palate wanting.

About the only novel thing about the place was the orange phone attached to the booth for quick, efficient ordering.

If you are visiting Thermopolis for the therapeutic waters, don't harsh your calm with a dissatisfying meal. I hate to say it, but even McDonald's would have been an improvement. And in case you were wondering, there is a local Mickey D's right up the road.

“Great hamburger, and when was the last time you saw an A&W Burger Family??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

This is what I love about this eatery:
*Great hamburger and tater barrels.
*A&W Root Beer Floats ~enough said.
*Ordering your food from a vintage 60's / 70's era phone at your table.
*The A&W Burger Family larger than life statues greeting you when you arrive.

We eat here at least once every time we visit Thermopolis :)
