“Gotta Warm Up Those Burgers”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The biggest complaint I have had for years at A & W is being given barely lukewarm burgers - consistently. I have never had a "hot" burger! The onion rings this summer were terrible. Instead of golden brown, the batter was uneven, overly crisp, and crumbling off the onions. I don't know if the problem is staff isn't being trained properly or management is inept. I love what A & W has to offer, but this restaurant falls far short of the mark. I'll only go if I have to, and then for the root beer.

Reviewed January 12, 2012

Try the prime rib Grandma burger with the best chocolate shakes! Always consistently good, with friendly staff.

“Mostly run by school kids”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

Although the food is good, they aren't much on customer service...mostly high school kids work here and are busier with their own lives than our orders.

“I'd get more customer service from a vending machine!”
Reviewed March 22, 2009

The burgers were burnt twice and sent back, but above all the customer service was atrocious. I will never eat there again.
