I don't usually go to fast food restaurants, but when it comes to A & W, I make an exception because there's history here. When I see an A & W sign my memory shuffles back to my high school weekends when I jumped in...More

This is specifically for the Gibford Drive A&W. The food quality is good. That's why I gave them 2 instead of 1. The service on the Drive through window is beyond abysmal. I've lived near this unit 10 months. I'm not exaggerating when I say...More

This is a very popular place for b'fast. They will even take your coupons if they are out of date. Order your b'fast and they bring it to the table. I have always found the staff exceptional compared with any other A&W. A great b'fast...More

I live nearby and have gone there for breakfast several times. There is this amazing woman at the cash that puts the order in, then delivers the b'fast to your table. She is not the youngest hostess ever but she is capable and very fast!...More

I use to really like A&W until the franchise started to use fear advertising to promote its beef. All meat (beef and chicken etc.) sold in Canada is tested to make sure that there are no antibiotics in the meat. In Canada, a one time...More
