It's A&W - come out and great a good burger, some onion rings and a root beer float! What more do you need? We are here after s long day of hiking Teetering Rock trail. Perfect end to the day.

We ate breakfast here, and it was very good. Friendly and clean, you get your coffee and sit at a table and they bring your order to you. Real knife and fork silverware. Great place to eat.

Eddie, our 5-pound mini Pom-Yorkie needs traveling fare and shares teen burgers with his owners. The Fort Nelson A&W is a mandatory stop both ways on our annual A-HWY trip. We rank the F.N. produce highest among the many A&W places we frequent. A bit of interesting trivia : If you want to see or meet locals or real old-timers... More

We flew through Fort Nelson and had breakfast at A&W. Not the best food, but good tea and coffee and we were served by two very friendly staff.

I am a morning person and it is nice to be able to go to a small restaurant and have good coffee and a simple breakfast with good friends.

Stopped in for some burgers - what really counts in any drive-thru burger place is the food and the service - what else is there?? - A&W has really turned around as far as food goes - except for some of the old deep fryer items, their menu has undergone a shift towards being somewhat healthy for a fast-food place......

I've been here twice staying in town for four months I asked my boyfriend to pick me up a cheese burger that's it simple right? No they told us he couldn't make a cheese burger! And my boyfriend said how about a buddy burger and he says we don't serve those before 11 it was 5 to 11! So he... More

The drive from Grande Prairie to Liard River is beautiful and interesting but long and grueling, especially with construction and accidents. Food options are few and A&W was a very welcome sight. We were all ready for a refreshing root beer and they certainly did not disappoint. The burgers, fries etc. were very well prepared and I enjoyed the combination... More

On our way up to or back from the Liard Hotsprings or Muncho Lake we stop there for a quick meal. Usually teenburgers which our little dog Eddie also likes. The restaurant undergoes renovations at the moment. If you want to see/meet old Fort Nelsonites, visit there between 10 and 11 AM

I like the teen burger and onion rings. They are a great, satisfying meal. This meal is also one of the least harmful of all the burger fast food meals in all the fast food restaurants. This meal is also consistently good in all the A&W Restaurants we have visited in our extensive travels.
