A great old school place we visited after driving through Glacier. You can never go wrong with an A&W root beer float.

After a long day in Glacier National Park, we walked from motel we were staying in for supper; Southern for diner, at A&W. Chris who took our order was a very friendly and funny person, who seemed to really enjoy his job. We had mama and papa burgers which were both very good.

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.

Thank P W
