I'm not a huge fan of fast food, but A&W at least has fresh burgers made from cleaner beef (no antibiotics) than the other places. And they taste great!

I loved A &W when I was a kid. That was a long time ago before McDonalds, Harvey's, Burger King and every other place that sprang in to existence. Now A&W is making a comeback. And guess what. Their burgers are great and way better than McDonald's, Harveys, and Burger King. They use high quality beef, their fries are good... More

a good grilled burger but the fried onins rather than fresh onions make the bun soggy, I tell you what though the no ice in the root beer is great and of course the root beer it's self is second to none.

My husband and I will go out of our way to have an A$W burger with their super crispy onion rings, and don't forget to top that off with a delicious, frosted mug of root beer. Very inexpensive, we always get the two can dine Momma burgers, and they fill us up. Clean and friendly staff, love the décor, so... More

Not much to say but it is decent food. Tastes much better than mcD's. At least you get the feeling of some value without all the added chemicals.

This is one of my favorite fast food burger places. The fries are great. I like having tables to eat at, too. Also, it's nice that they have a diet soft drink option that isn't cola.

This restaurant goes WAY back. used to go in the 60ies. And it has only improved. Highly recommend the Uncle burger and diet rootbeer, lets face it, it is a chain, but well above many of the others! And they are actually friendly.

Love the Burgers here. Nice Papa burger and the chicken fillet one. But also like the fact they put my fries in a wire basket. Also like the big glasses with the handle. Just something a bit different from the usual!

I have loved the teenburger since I was a teen. It is hamburger perfection. The fries are crisp and tasty. The quality of the food is consistent - always good. The prices are reasonable.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
