“Same great quality for several decades!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

The Sherwood Park A & W serves the same excellent food I first encountered as a kid in Winnipeg in the 1950's. Even the music was from that era - Les Paul & Mary Ford - but you don't have to be an old geezer to enjoy eating here!

“Love A&W - But this place is Gross!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2010

Generally I love A&W; but this location has been consistantly bad. I have gone here a few times (5-6 over about a year) hoping it would get better but it hasn't. Repeated problems I have had here are:

- Buns are "toasted" until they are dry or almost burnt but I think it is just to cover up how stale they are and twice they were still moldy.

- Lettuce, Tomatoes etc. are always wilted and in big hunks instead of evenly distributed.

- Fries are usually old and rubbery (which I admit has been an issue at other A&W's, which is a shame because when they are fresh they are sooo good).

- Onion rings are always over cooked and hardly "rings" any more as they are always pretty smashed up.

- They never fill the drink all the way, they leave like an inch of room at the top and it's often warm (extra bad as they don't use ice in there drinks).

- Finally the staff are not friendly or nice in the least, no "thank you" no "have a nice day" no "please". Its usually "What is your order" "pay at the window" "and "here is your food"; without a smile or the least bit of interest in serving you. Which I have almost start to except when its an angsty teen; but most if not all of the workers here are adults!

“Best Fast Food in Sherwood Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2008

If you want a great fast food burger, that is consistently rated the best at any fast food chain restaurant, then look no further than the A&W chain, especially here in Sherwood Park.
Sherwood Park restaurants seem to have a problem retaining staff, because of the surrounding region economy that draws staff away into higher paying positions. However, this A&W and the nearby McDonalds seem to offer some form of incentives to their staff.

Now, A&W has always been my preferred fast food chain of choice here in Canada for burgers, as I love the Teen Burger - yummmm, like another reviewer mentioned. Main reason to always return was the burgers and fries. Now the fries have changed for some reason at all the A&W chain locations, but that hasn't deterred me from returning.
I'll always stop in here at this location on a late day's shopping when I can't make it home in time to make dinner. Next logical choice would be Taco Bell, but they closed the Sherwood Park Taco Bell (now called a Wok Box) which was located next door to the A&W.
