You can eat here and it's okay, but the staff are not friendly for the most part. I didn't know that saying hello and acting pleasant was all that hard until I came here.

Ok, so one cannot expect miracles from a fast food outlet but walking in on a pretty quiet day and they completely muddled my order was underwhelming to say the least. In fact, taking apart my burger was the grossest thing I have ever seen...More

For a quick, fresh burger, this location is top notch. Fast, friendly service. Did I say fresh? They seem to be fresher than usual. Location is good for the Thrift store and Quality Foods.

I normally try to avoid fast food restaurants, but A & W with their hormone free beef burgers is slowly changing my mind. My wife and I enjoyed a Mozza burger with fries and found it as good as the best burger restaurants. The fries...More
