I haven't tried A&W breakfast in many many years, until today. I'm glad they have an option other than a burger bun for a breakfast sandwich. The hashbrown was amazing, the breakfast sandwich was great, but the coffee was garbage. Staff was a bit slow. I dont understand why they would hand two coffees and a bag of food with... More

We stopped in here on the way through and really do like A&W for fast and hot and consistent good fast food. I do like the Root Beer and always have. I do remember when they used to have the waitress come up to the car with roller skates on back in the 1950's. ( not here but were I... More

This is a frequent visit of mine for a good burger. Always different than the normal burger I find the taste is much better. I love their root beer and the onion rings are not bad. Their French fries are better than they were in the past , soit is a good experience.

Good service and always great food. Never disappointed with this fast-food stop. Teens and root beer are my favorite.

We have been to the Cinema and wanted something quick to eat before we headed home. We haven't been in the A & W in Truro since the re-fit. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. I had an Uncle Burger and it looked just like the picture, no flat, soggy bun here. It was toasted beautifully, crisp... More

I am very sensitive to food additive and gluten to the point there is almost no fats food places I can eat anymore. In the last couple years A&W is bucking the mass produced food of fast food restaurants. I find the food extraordinarily fresh, the grilling those onions in each restaurant. Service is awesome and you get a full... More

The A&W restaurants are advertising the new burgers and a few days ago we gave the Momma Burger a try. Well....talk about tasty. We totally enjoy this burger as it had been quite a while since we had our last one. The staff were extra friendly and made our visit a good experience. We will be back

I used to stop at A & W to pick up breakfast on the way to work (trying to save now, so eat at home). There's a lady there in the morning who is really friendly and helpful; she's a pleasure to deal with. All their staff members are friendly. I used to get bacon, eggs and toast. Always done... More
