You can't go to Canada and not eat poutine. Of all the poutine we ate, A&W had the best. Wash it down with a frosty mug of root beer for the perfect snack!

Fast food is all the time good. If they are angry e non much time to seat and eat, the best is to stop at A&W and have a good hamburger. I do so with my family.

Where do i start on a trip from US we stopped here for lunch the new 5oz Burger was amazing, fries were great and malt vinigar was a great touch. Add the glass mugs for the root beer also. Came back next morning for breakfast where we got full Canadian breakfasts on proper plates with real silverware and real mugs... More

I like how it seems to be fresh. Not like the other fast food joints. I like those baskets that they serve their fries in.

Reminds me of the 60`s & 70`s. It`s the only restaurant that is not owned by americans. It reminds me of the days at the drive-in at the movies. It was a great time with the family. I can`t remember any bad experiences.

I noticed they make the food ahead (Selkirk, MB) location- and it is not always fresh and hot! I have given burgers and fries back because of this.

A complete surprise! Real, tasty, hamburguers and....great price! Local, Canadian, if you are in the mood of fast food, or you want to spoil your kids (or please them actually) this is a great deal. Reasonable service, but most of all, what you get, looks pretty similar to the picture! Noting fancy, nor gourmet, but a better alternative by far... More
