I have been eating at A&W restaurants since 1967. This branch is a favourite. the food is always fresh, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you have a pereference, they'll make whatever it is the way you like it. the staff are as friendly and helpful as you could ask for. I would reccommend this one to anyone.

In my opinion A&W make the best burgers and onion rings out of all the fast food restaurants. I would give them a 5 star rating but like most A&W restaurants they are stingy when it comes to filling their fries and onion ring containers. I also find their prices to be a little steep and generally only eat there... More

We went to the A7W in Shawnessey for breakfast. They have a very nice breakfast menu, and the basics, like Bacon and eggs or pancakes are served on china with real cutlery! The food there is all good - we enjoy visiting the A and Dub often at all times of day. Great service and very reasonable. It's funny that... More

Good root beer and decent prices. Don't expect miracles and sometimes the staff are less than, um, perceptive and accommodating with "special" requests (hold the lettuce, extra tomato). But the food is consistent and ya gotta love that root beer!

Most breakfasts in South Calgary are moderately priced, but A & W offers a similar sized portion, great quality, but easily at HALF the price. The food is not GMO processed junk, but healthier versions of bio-friendlier products. Great value and relatively healthy.

The public is buried in burgers! But the A&W Family restaurants , particularly in Canada, have maintained a quality of food varieties on their menu that would be tough to match. The "Family" of burgers available is unique! The chicken dishes are competitive, fries above average, breakfast items very good and the root beer is "best of the best" in... More

We often go to the A&W for brekkie. The Bacon and Eggs breakfast (cooked how you like it) is a favourite. It is well-priced, and A&W coffee is bottomless and very good. The staff are courteous and friendly. The owner is often in the store, too. The atmosphere is great - lots of folks enjoying their morning together. Always clean.

I have to say that my experiences of late, have not been good ones. My mother enjoys having a burger now and again and sends me off to pick up something for her for lunch. Even she has found the quality of food to be severely lacking, pre-cooked meat that has gone tasteless and cold, cheese not even melted on... More
