“An A&W.”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

As with all of these outlets the menu we all know. The service is always slow, generally unpleasant (wish I had another job!), but I'm always drawn back at least 2 times a year because they have the best recipe for the Onion Rings....and it has to be matched with a Teen Burger....living my past, remembering the drive-in....but it's also generally heartburn for a while!

“Good stop for a quick pickup at mealtime”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I liked the availability of an A and W right near the beach area. We had coffee and fries ( bad, bad!), but were very impressed with the quick and efficient service. The town is nice to stay in, so having a quick lunch made it possible to extend our visit.

“Popular Parksville breakfast restaurant”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

A popular place to visit for a coffeee or breakfast in Parksville. Breakfasts are inexprensive and the menu is not extensive but theres always a group of people (many seniors) that seem to enjo the coffee (real mugs, not paper cups) and breakfast choices from toast to eggs, bacon and hashbrowns.

One orders at the counter andmeals are brought to your table. Coffee refills are free. A good place for a quick, not fancy but inexpensive breakfast

A & W is really involved in the local classic car group and the MS community re fundraising. This is great, and their drive thru is quick and efficient.

“The kitchen staff yelling at each other is always entertaining....”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

The burgers and hot dogs are good, the drinks usually overfull and especially a problem if you drive through because you end up with sticky hands and steering wheel. If you ask them not to fill it so much, the staff gets annoyed!
