“Retro-Fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

A great memory of the first fast food restaurant to come to the Upper Valley. This is the only one of the chain left in Vermont. Eat in your car with Roller Service or inside (but that's no fun.)

A&W has my favorite root beer! Not sure what happened to the Teen Burger and Mama Burger...

Family fun, once a year treat.

“Nice drive-up place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Pretty cool how you can drive up and they serve you in your car. Burger was alright, fries were good and root beer float too.

“Nothing better than a Root Beer Float”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you want a throw back to the 50's and 60's, go to this A&W on Route 7 South of Middlebury. It if fun and good.

“a great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Westopped here on my birthday and had the best chicken sandwich I have had in years, The young lady saw us squinting at the menu and was quick to offer us paper menus to help our older eyes :)

Great service, wonderful food, we would definitely stop here again when we are in the area.

Oh! And how could I almost forget.... A & W root beer! Simply the best root beer you can get.

“Drive in food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is only open for too short a time, Car hops arrive with the meal in short time. Hot fresh cooked burgers and hot dogs, fries and the best root-beer. (float if you want). Hate the fall when they close.
