So, the food is great, the root beer is amazing, the staff is wonderful, it needs some cleaning. But where doesn't? BUT!! The owner and his son are awful!! They were literally telling the employees that they were useless and stupid! What kind of boss puts down their employees like that?! I will NEVER go back to this A&W because... More

I grew up eating A&W, it used to be a drive-up restaurant, with carhops and window trays! I love their hot dogs and you can't beat the root beer (or orange cream ) floats-yummy! They make good fries too! So glad Atascadero still has an A&W!

I have been going to A & W's my entire life. The food at this one is above average but the cleanliness here is poor. A bit of trash was on the floor. The real low light was the men's restroom.

Customer service is as important as food. In this case, food is great but customer services was not. The cashier never smiled, never greeted us and was stone cold to our presence. Good food. Service....... 🤔🤔🤔🤔

I love there French sandwiches. Oh my God they are good. All that buffalo, and root beer from the old days. Okay it's probably beef but I wish it was buffalo.

There must be better places to eat in this town, I would suggest looking at other reviews, this place did not make us feel welcome and the food was of poor quality, greasy and luke warm.

The hamburgers are hot, delicious and well stacked. The fries are probably the best I've eaten locally. It is like going back to the 50's when you walk in and the staff treats you like a friend. We eat here every couple of weeks.

The interior was very dirty. The food was cold. Was disappointed. Will not visit again. This is the second time in the last two months we have tried, but both times with the same result.
