Yeah, it's fast food but it's fun...great fish sandwiches and tots, and of course the famous root beer float. Nice people, fast service, and don't forget to ring the bell when you're done. If you go there you'll find out what that means!

A very clean old fashioned A&W. The food and service was very good. The root beer floats are as good as ever and they offer free root beer refills.

Ordered 2 shakes in the drive thru. Waited about 3 minutes behind the car in front of me. Pulled up to window. Waited 11 minutes for our shakes. During that time I observed multiple staff members shooting the **** with eachother. Finally we paid and were given our order. No apologies for the wait. Not a pleasant experience at all.

We actually stop in Faribault just for their A&W! The hotdogs and onion rings are the first choice but nothing tops the root beer floats. Service is always friendly and they usually have a special or coupons.

The drive up park and eat is a wonderful throw back. The service is quick and polite, and the food is delicious. You can't go to the A&W without getting a root beer or a root beer float. I would definitely recommend checking it out. A nostalgic day out with the family or date night with your sweetie.

Drove the 57 Chevy over,45 mile for supper. Well worth the drive. Good ole frosty mug root beer, great food. Only complaint was the burgers have sure gotten thinner. Otherwise, another fantastic meal, great service, and that root beer !!

Thought we were just doing a quick drive through for lunch, but this it a different A & W. It is just like when we were kids...drive up or sit in a booth and order. Very busy and really organized . Order at your table and. Get your root beer in a frosty mug. Great find!

A&W Root Beer, in the frosty mug, umm umm good, even in the winter time. Add in a great tasting cheeseburger and chicken strips with tots, and we had a great tasting meal at a good price. They walk around the room several times with a pitcher of root beer for free refills until you float out the door. No... More
