All the usual fare and prices, but staff were tripping over each other, and no one was taking the lead. We were almost late for an event because it was so slow. Frustrating when you can see your food and no one is grabbing it.

This A&W is more expensive than other ones. I think a drink was $.50 more than usual, with corresponding prices on food.
