“Old womam at drive through”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

The old lady at drive through is about as friendly as sitting on a cactus. Slower than molasses in February and just not suited for the job at all.This is at the DT location. do yourself a favor and eat at the highway location service is better and because of the higher volume of traffic the food always seems fresh.

“Worlds most expensive A&W.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

We wanted a quick bite to eat after being so disappointed in the town of Moosejaw, thought it would be a quaint and cute little town sort of like Banff...nope the town is for the most part a cesspool or at least the downtown area is. Absolutely no reason for anyone to ever go to this town.

Anyways we ate at the A&W and the food was fine, I had a burger and poutine, wife had chicken strips and we each had drinks and the total came to $29!!!! For A&W? I double checked the bill and everything was correct it's just that between the insane prices and the added 12% tax you basically get taken advantage of.

“There is one old woman always working the drive-through...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

...And she is absolutely vile. Maybe if she used her ears half as much as her mouth she might get your order the first time around. Even if you're extremely polite and patient with this woman's obnoxious, rude, and clueless behavior you still get treated like trash. She interrupts you after every 3 words you say. She makes you repeat yourself a half-dozen times. After you drive away and look in your bag you realize she still got the order wrong, you're missing napkins, ketchup, and even your straw. I can understand a person having a bad day--we all have them--but every encounter I've had with woman has been the same story.

Basic human interaction isn't very difficult. Following the rules set by your employers isn't very difficult. Taking your job seriously isn't very difficult. Treating people with respect isn't very difficult. The management -needs- to retrain her, if she doesn't start treating people like people her job should go to someone who actually wants it. If I'm being respectful, I expect to be treated the same. I'd much rather deal with some naive youth in training than some bitter disrespectful elderly woman.

One employee is solely responsible for my decision to stop visiting this restaurant altogether. After dozens of visits my opinion of the establishment has been tarnished beyond redemption. The management has a big problem on their hands and they aren't doing a thing to remedy the situation.

If you want a quick meal and pleasant service... Well you should invest your precious time and drive all the way across the highway to an establishment that doesn't treat its customers like a pile of crap.

“Highway A&W is far Better than DT Store”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

I always go to A&W on the TC Hwy in Moose Jaw. The onion rings are awesome, and the burgers are fresh. The place is clean and the staff are on the ball.

The A&W in Moose Jaw on Main Street is not the same. Food is often served less than hot, even when the place is empty, like they prepare a bunch in advance. The kids who work there have no pride, don't seem to give a damn. I refuse to eat there. The onion rings are greasy and broken, like the oil is old or not hot enough, anyways they are not good.
