Took my daughter here to experience the nostalgic car hop service. The food was great...love their freezes!! Only problem was trying to figure out what to do with the tray once we were done.

The A&W on G St. is like walking back 50 years ago. The atmosphere is great, the people friendly and wonderful HOT food. No cold fries here and nice portions. The tomato, lettuce and onions were fresh and crisp. The history on the wall was interesting and took you back to a simple time when all you cared about was enough gas to cruise around town

This place is something everyone should see if you come to Modesto. The movie American Graffiti was all about Modesto Ca cruising the streets in the 50's. This A and W is what was represented in the movie. They still have the waitress on Roller skates and an old Jukebox. Food is good too.

Took my husband here to show him the old A and W. It's still original. Inside there are so many signed pictures from the movie American Graffiti.
