I enjoy A&W regularly but the food at this place is substandard by far. I just had what was considered my favourite, the Mozza Burger Combo. It had a regular Root Beer and Onion rings. usually, I find the Rings exceptionally tasty at A&Ws I frequent, but the best part of this meal was the Root Beer. the whole meal... More

Fast food is normally not known for its healthy ingredients, but A&W has gone the extra mile in that regard. It is nice to see their guarantees of healthy foods. Of course, although an exception, the root beer maintains the great taste we knew as teens many years ago.

A&W menu done quite well but perhaps not quite as good as in the past. Used to have oldies music but no more and lost the Globe & Mail (not their fault) and they... More

Best pancakes in town by far. I come here every weekend for tea and pancakes. Really nice service and really nice breakfast food. Not sure about the burgers and fries I try to say away from that kind of food but definitely worth a stop in for pancakes some morning.

Typical grease, salt and post consuming depression! Was a great idea when you are hungry…not so much 20 minutes later.

I always like Mary at A&W Torbay to take my order everytime I go eat in because she looks so neat and wears a very nice smile. Grandiose! Her shirt is so white and no trace of any stains at all. It only shows what personality she has and that she knows her job very well hence, can keep the... More
