Three strikes your out, 3 bad meals in a row. Messy, dirty, and greasy burgers, soggy onion rings, staff not well trained.

Like most of the A & W restaurants the food is fantastic and the service is friendly and quick. Great place to bring the family.

For those of us who grew up with Papa Burgers, it's a real treat to find a REAL A&W. We stayed 4 days and ate dinner ( take out) there 3 of them.

Hadn't been here for awhile and had to try the new burgers. Good for a fast food burger. Onion rings are light and tasty, fries were pretty good too. Of course gotta have the root beer.

We ate here twice this past week. One was in the restaurant and the other was the drive though. Both times the meals were served quickly and both times the burgers were cooked perfectly. Thank you.

The food is always fresh and tasty. The environment is clean and bright. I prefer them to the big chain (you know who).

A&W need I say more. Best fast food burgers, onion rings and root beer anywhere. Worth it every single time.

They have a great breakfast. Tea/coffee not included but for $1.40 you get a huge mug. Love the teenburgers. They have the best onion rings. Once in a while they put too much spice on them and they're too salty.

Teen burgers $3 on Thursdays, watch prices on things like onion rings...they over-charge sometimes. Mama Burger always a good choice.
