“I want ice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

I love A&W. They have great burgers and awesome onions rings. Fries and Coney sauce are amazing there as well.
However, I love fountain pop. In order for a fountain pop to be just right it requires just the right amount of ice.
The Kingston Centre location outright says they have no ice (fountain pop machine with no ice maker? Must be through only one in North America. Lol)
The one out princess street near Costco has big frosty mugs if you eat in and ask however.

Not a big deal... but it makes me far less likely to go there if I'm thirsty as well as hungry.

“A&W for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Surprisingly excellent. We both had the Classic - 2 eggs any style, bacon and thick toast with jam. Real eggs! And the coffee is very, very good. If you don't mind a disposible plate and plastic cutlery, it really can't be beat for the price, quality and quantity with pleasant service.

“good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

i have the breakfast some times good... priced reasonable..the burgers are what they are ..fast food...I eat the teen burger or chubby chicken sandwich....my fav of course IS the root beer..long are gone the days of car hops

...but the atmoshere is good when the "company music" is played..all too often staff have their own music cranked up more than necessary....not the place for hip hop and rap...tthe music is for "customer atmosphere" not staff.
