“It's still fast food...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

They can class it up as much as they want, but that awful feeling in my stomach that inevitably comes within an hour of eating ANY fast food, including, but not limited to, A&W, tells me that their food is still highly processed just like all the rest!

For a good affordable burger, try Marble's on a Monday, 2 for 1 burgers... If not a Monday try The Crazy Canuck for a great homemade burger!

“Amazing sweet potato fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

See pictures and full review here: http://pickledpeas.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/first-meal-in-canada/

I really liked their sweet potato fries. Excellent seasoning, and they served them with this chipotle aioli which went perfectly with the fries.

The burgers were also good – I had mine with mozzarella and I think L’s one had provolone. The A&W here is quite different from what we have in South East Asia, which tends to sell fried chicken, waffles - the only common denominator is the root beer float. It's open quite late (past 10pm!) and good for an easy dinner.

“Best Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Extremely delicious burgers. The best moist and juicy burger I ever had in my life. They have the best brad and mayo sauce. It is hot, juicy, moist, and fresh. The world's best burger no doubt.

I will always come back to this high quality standard restaurant.

I highly reccomend this restaurant to all burger lovers.
