A great little burger hangout. Great Mugs of Root Beer (A&W Brand). Check out the chicken as well. Recently Built site with the more modern outlook.

Food is good but apparently they do not turn their heat on until after 11am. If you are going for breakfast wear your snowsuit. With frost all over the ground the building was a dead cold 1 degree! Not comfortable for anyone!

Popular burgers and fries. Good value although I found the burger a little greasy and the fries were not hot. Still love the root beer.

We ordered: - BLT Chubby Chicken Burger - delicious! I really liked the bun, it wasn't the usual fast food bun, more like a ciabatta. It was pretty expensive at over $6 just for the burger, though. - Poutine - delicious! It's hard to go wrong with poutine. - Veggie burger - The veggie burger was fine, pretty much what... More

Some of the staff may be underpaid, as they often seem bored. But, I'm a fan of the beef-burgers, currently advertised as being raised without hormones or steroids. However, I do find the menu confusing: papa burgers, mama burgers, uncle burgers, teen burgers, etc. It's not always clear what these are, so some more obvious explanation might be in order....

Went in for two mama burgers and fries. Couldn't help notice the 'could care less' attitude of the employees. Not friendly at all. Food was barely satisfactory.

Good service as always and great food. This food chain has never let us down and it was very close to the motel we stayed at.

Been to this restaurant numerous times and IMO it has lower standards then the other A&W locations I've been to. Found it odd the other day (Tuesday) when I drove by at 7:20am and it was closed even though it's well known that they have a breakfast menu. One time I tried to lodge a complaint via the email provided... More

Liked how the staff makes you feel welcomed. They serve the food the way you order it. Located north of Staples store. Check it out!
