Who remembers the Poppa Burger, the Momma Burger and the Teen Burger of our childhood? The TeenBurger is still big, still really tasty and still very good value. Wash one does with the A&W Root Beer (which we can now buy in London!). Happy times.

Worst A & W IN ALL OF BRITISH COLUMBIA !!! I have been a 10 year customer of this place last year they changed staff and the place went right downhill. I have always gotten 2 English muffins with eggs and bacon for $5 almost every A & W will honor this in British Columbia. Many times the staff have... More

This A & W restaurant is just average hamburger joint. Average employees, doing an average job. Not much meat on your burger for the money, but the fries were hot! The dining area was pretty messy which surprised me for this town. If your hungry and tired and are staying close, try it out and maybe they'll keep the fire... More

Nice location in a historic building right near the cruise ship dock. Standard burgers, fries and the great A&W root beer. We wanted an ice cream cone, but they didn't have cones, so we wound up with a root beer float, you can never go wrong with that!

You must be joking. You want a review on an A&W? Is a chain restaurant in Vancouver different from a similar chain restaurant any where else? Isn't similarity and consistency the whole idea behind chain restaurants?

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
