great staff

typical A&W food, the staff however were very nice and kept the restaurant quite clean. A convenient location to stop during a road trip, just beware of the traffic around the restaurant, it can be quite busy at times and some people come off the highway too fast.

It's an A&W but the burgers are the best of the chains in Canada. The no hormone and antibiotic meat has a different taste.

We stopped at this A&W to get refreshed after being battered by the wind on a motorcycle for an hour. We don't usually stop for lunch, but decided to stay and eat. We weren't disappointed. The burgers were hot and delicious. (my husband had the Guacamole teen burger) I was pleasantly surprised to see sweet potato fries on the menu.... More

A&W has apparently partnered with a few selected cattle ranching operations to offer hormone and steroid free beef. What results is one seriously tasty hamburger. I thought maybe the one I Got was a fluke, so I cam e back a week later and ordered the same thing, and again it was excellent. I especially enjoyed having a cold coke... More

We came in late and it was one of the few places still open. We got a coupon and used it for breakfast too. We were looking for quick and easy and the A&W fit the bill. We had some difficulty with the one-way street, we seemed to always take the long way round.

It is always great food, comfortable seating and easy access from the highway. I love that it has lots of variety. I only would say that at times they are out of what you want to order and at times say that it will take 15- 20 minutes to cook the choice you have made. But they say so in... More

Who reviews an A&W? These restaurants are everywhere but this one had the nicest friendliest staff I have ever encountered at an A&W. Nice having them refill your coffee at your table. The food is pretty much the standard A&W fare but my visit there today was pleasant just because of the staff. Thankyou.

We've been through Ft. McLeod numerous times throughout the years, and this was the first we'd stopped at A&W. Due to the seating arrangement because of the evening cleaning that was going on, areas were cordoned off by chairs, so we had a table at the front. (Which was quite convenient to hear the lengthy conversation between the worker and... More

I stopped here on May 17th Friday evening at 8:30 and half of the restaurant was closed off with chairs. The staff is friendly however the food was only OK. I was charged extra for fried onions, and there were hardly any on my burger! Most of all, the washrooms were disgustingly dirty. They are in a great location therefore... More
