This burger was loaded with spicy pineapple, onion rings, tangy sauce. Very tasty. The chocolate shake was not a chocolatey as I would like.

The hamburgers are so good. They are a little greasy but that is hat makes them good. They are also expensive compared to other places but worth it. You can have most anything added for no additional cost. We always enjoy their burgers. You will...More

Fresh made root beer in a frosty mug. If you visit just for that it's worth stopping. Even better, make it a root beer float! I thoroughly enjoyed the burger. All burgers are cooked at time of order and dressed to your liking. I also...More

We stopped here because we drive by often and we were travelling on our motorcycles with our dog and knew there was outside eating and probably dog friendly, which it was. What surprised me was that I hadn't been to an A&W in a long...More

Very nice place. Root Beer floats were terrific. The staff was friendly and the facility was clean. The location was easy to get to and it was in an area with many restaurants.
