I would definitely recommend checking it out. A nostalgic day out with the family or date night with your sweetie.

Drove the 57 Chevy over,45 mile for supper. Well worth the drive. Good ole frosty mug root beer, great food. Only complaint was the burgers have sure gotten thinner. Otherwise, another fantastic meal, great service, and that root beer !!

Thought we were just doing a quick drive through for lunch, but this it a different A & W. It is just like when we were kids...drive up or sit in a booth and order. Very busy and really organized . Order at your table and. Get your root beer in a frosty mug. Great find!

A&W Root Beer, in the frosty mug, umm umm good, even in the winter time. Add in a great tasting cheeseburger and chicken strips with tots, and we had a great tasting meal at a good price. They walk around the room several times with a pitcher of root beer for free refills until you float out the door. No... More

The hamburgers are all beef patties, so no soy or fillers. The wait staff are inexperienced and poorly trained- we observed an argument between the manager and wait staff while there- unacceptable.

The seating area is pleasant, and the food comes out fast. The fries are great, the pork tenderloin okay, and the root beer float is my very favorite thing. I especially appreciate that they bring around pitchers of root beer for free refills.
