“Good fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This is our place of choice for fast food, it's always freshly cooked and tasty. If given the chance to go to a nicer sit down restaurant I would go, but this is a great place while you're on the go.

“cheap and good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Always love a&w fries, most of the A&Ws I have been to always had FRESH, HOT from the fryer fries, a&w always has good fantastic burger deals like 2 teens for $7, or $3 for sirloin uncles burger. The people there are friendly, patient and helpful.

“Best Quick Serve Hamburger Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

If you are going to have a hamburger at a quick serve (fast food) restaurant, A & W is the place. The meat quality is second to none. The choice of burgers has improved a lot over the past 5 years and they now offer Sirloin Burgers and occassionally a Prime Rib Burger.

But even if you don't like burgers, the Onion Rings and Root Beer are enough to get you in the restaurant!
