Love the root beer floats, love the fresh brewed root beer with the soft serve ice cream. The burgers and fries are just average.

The young lady on roller skates was fantastic.

I have been eating at the A&W for probably 50 years. Always consistent and provides me with some great memories. Out of the way and you need to search it out but worth it.

The nostalgia is what prompted us to pull in. We were just passing through and looking for dinner. The quaintness hooked us but forget that. This was maybe the best fast food style burger I've ever had. I got the double bacon with no cheese. The bacon was thick and flavorful. The veggies fresh and the meat perfectly cooked. The onion rings were way better than expected. In short, this was an awesome find.

We enjoyed the food and of course the Root Beer,it takes a while for the order because they aren't pre made which is a good thing

We went for only one thing: a frosty (glass) mug of root bear and it absolutely met the need and nostalgic memories.

The place is a bit run down and grungy. But service was quick, personal and cheerful. And the root beer was great on a day with temps at 96 degrees!

PS: they have the old fashioned mugs for sale in various sizes!
