You want to come here for their freshly made in house Root Beer. It is made with cane sugar instead of a high fructose corn syrup. You can get just regular root beer, or you can get a float which is really good. The other...More

Don't be fooled by the plethora of welcoming A&W signs on the roads leading into town. This was one of the worst meal experiences I have ever had. I have never been inside such a noisy take-out joint. The woman at the counter SCREECHED her...More

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....... 🤔🤔🤔🤔
