A&W has a small parking lot. Come early for a spot. Fast service and hot, great American food. A place you can count on. Try the Reese's style cup of ice cream, awesome! Enjoy

This is the original A&W and they still make their root beer daily. Taste real fountain root beer, none of the pre-mixed, pre-mixed stuff. Served in a glass mug. Root beer floats also. Also plenty of A&W history to take you down memory lane.

This is where it all began. If in Lodi, you must go and see where A&W began. The best rootbeer floats in a frosted mug.

You have to stop to enjoy the very first A&W in the country. Sip the root beer, devour the chili cheese fries and wander thru the memorabilia. Food and service were very good
