Nothing like a A & W Root Beer in a cold Glass MUG along with a Pappa, Mumma or Teen Burger. Always a great place, just like I remember going there many times over the Last 55 years. O'H that root beer, OOOOOH SO GOOOOD.

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!

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...More
