“THE ORIGINAL A&W!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

While on one of my semi-annual trips to Lodi a number of years ago, there was an off-site event which took place at this A&W, which was their first location in the USA. The restaurant was recently remodeled, but it retains the original ambience of the A&Ws of our youth, with Fifties/Sixties rock and roll being played on the sound system and the same great burgers, root beer floats, shakes, etc.that we all remember with fondness. On Thursdays there's a car show of hot rods and other classic cars in the parking lot. If you're in Lodi, not to be missed!

“Best Root Beer on the Planet!”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

What's better than a mug of A&W? Restaurant just went through a complete remodel. Check out the vintage car nights. Very cool. Traditional burgers with some surprises.
