Root beer served in a glass mug. Plenty of staff and they empty /clean your table when you are done.

The food was of good quality and typical of this fast food chain of stores - if you've eaten in one, you know what to expect.

Personally, these are some of the best onion rings for a fast food joint. Especially if you eat them as soon as they come out of the fryer. I love the spice they put on them. Yum !

Hamburgers are quite greasy. Not enough healthy choices. Don't respect the ad campaign. All Canadian beef is grown without hormones or antibiotics. They're not special in that regard.

I have ALWAYS had good food at A & W but went to the Bayers Lake location recently and... Got the new bacon mozza chicken burger combo with sweet potato fries. The girl who served me at the counter was obviously new but that was fine. My fires were gross and the chicken burger was thrown together. Won't be going... More

I have never had A&W breakfast. This worked because half of us wanted breakfast and the other half lunch. They serve both at the same time! I had the All Canadian Breakfast. The eggs over easy were better than most restaurants I have been to. This was a delicious meal. I like how my coffee was served in a mug... More

Who hasnt eaten at A&W? They usually have a 2 burger deal,(2 teens for $6)etc. My favorite is the Papa burger. 2 meaty patties, thicker than McD's, and Burger King. and tastes like real ground beef. juicy and not dried out. Wash it down with a root beer in a icy glass...now I'm hungry..Hope this was helpful.

Have eaten here quite a few times when I feel like a change. The food is always cooked well - no complaints. The burgers, chicken and breakfast are all good. Staff are always pleasant.
