I haven't eaten at one of these for years. the burgers were wonderful. Quite a surprise. It wasn't the fast food fare but seemed a little fresh. I got a Papaburger

We went here twice on our trip. The first time we got burgers and they were just ok, I've definitely had better. The girl that took our order was NOT friendly at all.

Usual burgers, fries, etc but note it is US not Canada so no Mama, Teen or Baby burgers. They are serving root beer floats now as well as soft serve ice cream and other ice cream treats.

The oldest wanted a root beer float from A & W. The rest of us had ice cream & fries. This was a Yummy stop before heading home.

Our food was as expected from the chain, delicious after hiking parts of Glacier National Park. Being walkable from our hotel was the reason for our visit. The only snag was the young employee who struggled to take and make our order. He was replaced after our order.

The service was unbelievably slow. You look in the drive through window to see staff talking with each other, see,mingle perplexed by their jobs. Food was fine though.

We typically enjoy A&W when we are on the road but had to go in here as the service was down. Otherwise the place was your typical fast food outlet; cheap and ok.

We stopped here for a quick lunch while visiting family in Columbia Falls. I love the nostalgia of this place. The service wasn't the fastest but it was busy and seemed like the staff was learning. Friendly service. Still.....I enjoyed letting my daughter see where her Grandmother worked as a teen back in the day.
