Over the last few months the service and food at this and other A&W locations have definitely improved dramatically. The food here us usually very fresh (except A&W has the worst soggy fries in the business). The service here has become very very good!

Service was fast, people there were quick, and the food was hot. Tables were clean and so was the restaurant. Can't ask for more.

We ordered two meals that came with bacon. My teen burger had bacon burned black, I picked it off and threw it out. The Whistle Dog had bacon that was also burned black. Now this was not 'crispy' but charred. As in inedible. I took the hot dog back and asked for a replacement, which they gave me.

The only place to go for a great hamburger (the Uncle burger). Always fantastic when ordered without mayonnaise. Not sure if that is a north American thing where burgers are served with mayonnaise. I like to take the Uncle burger home and add pickled beets to it - I am from Australia and that is how I like my burger.

The food seem to be not quite as good as other A & W's. Rather tan going to this restaurant we will drive to the highway to another A & W. The food seems to be better prepared at this location.

Wanted to try their bacon egger for breakfast and reading the TA reviews for this one, decided to go to the one next to the Petro Can off highway 2A. The truck stop is great and the A & W was very good. Wonderful service, clean facility, lots of people stopping in for breakfast and they were quick! The bacon... More

There were 2 women openly talking about the customers and only 1 young lady actually working. Poor service. Breakfast was cold.

We will never go back to AandW because I've worked in food services for years and our fries must have been reheated hard and greasy discussting. The health board should have been there the day we were there something would have been done.

It's A&W so you know what you're getting. The best part of our recent visit was the attitude of the staff. Much more helpful and pleasant to deal with.

I moved to the states and although we have a&w here it is just not the same. I had to order the mozzarella burger! So good! The fries were okay and the root beer was excellent. The drive thru was fast and friendly with a short wait for the chicken strips.
