Bacon and eggs served fast, fresh and low priced. This is the best breakfast spot, minus the coffee. Fast service. Great burger. Excellent onion rings. Root beer beats no one else.

Great fast friendly drive through service. Best breakfast in the fast food industry. Bacon and eggs, old homestyle. Teen burgers are excellent. Never a disappointment.

Came here twice this month, leaving and coming back to Dartmoutu on my travels. Both times the service was good, fast and the burgers were hot and fresh. No complaints here! Would definitely recommend as a pit stop for a quick snack.

We stopped here on a long drive from Cape Breton to New Brunswick. Just a short way off the highway. Two sizes of root beer with the frosty mug. Burgers were good (we didn't see a coney dog on the menu). Fast service and nice people. Busy at lunch time.

My family and I always love stopping at this A&W on the road between Charlottetown and Halifax. It's approximately at the halfway mark off exit 4. It's often busy here and for good reason, the food is excellent. A&W is one of the few fast food places that I will eat at because their meat doesn't make one feel disgusting... More

I really like the new, less hormone, less chemical injection burgers and chicken that A and W are making these days. The latest offering of a BBQ burger is quite good. It's no Relish or other gourmet burger, but for the price, it's decent. The staff at this location were a friendly bunch in cramped quarters and got us our... More

We just happened to need lunch in this area both times during our trip to Cape Breton and the rest of Nova Scotia. Both visits we ordered the Uncle burgers with onion rings and mugs of root beer. While the atmosphere inside is typical of most chains, the food is excellent. We can't get decent onion rings in the US... More
