Additionally, if you are considering the drive-thru, be on the lookout for NUMEROUS potholes: before you enter, as you drive up to the order "window" and the doozies once you (finally) receive your order. Service is lacking at... More

I make lunch runs for work and we used to "A & W" 2, sometimes 3 times a week. In the last 3 or 4 months, the food and service have gone badly. We've had cold Teen Burgers that seemed old, Onion Rings, which ARE expensive, that were undercooked or EXTREMELY salty. 2 out of 3 times the Chicken Strips... More

Burgers are nice. But the soft drinks are made with a sirup machine adding water to a sirup. The problem is the tap water in Williams lake is chorined. And they don't filter that out hence: tastes awefull

This review is for the location in the mall specifically. The service and food preparation is so slow. I was actually advised to call my order in ahead of time if ordering a chicken burger or strips.

It is okay as far as fastfood goes, but their drive-thru service is beyond poor. Everytime I used the drive-thru, they would forget something from my order. Had to get out of my car go back and show them. Now I get go in, order to go, and have less hastle
