Ordered several different things on the menu. Staff was friendly. We ate mostly average things like burgers and fries, but the loaded bbq beef and cheese potato was very large and very good. We ended up splitting it between the 5 of us. We ordered and ate outside in our car and decided to sit a while contemplating root beer... More

Russell is a convenient stop between Denver and Topeka. We are A&W fans. While this location is a bit run down, it is clean and still serves very good food. We stopped here for a break. We got the corndog nuggets and, most importanly, the root beer float. Both are highly recommended. Service was fast, friendly and correct. They was... More

We hadn't eaten a hot meal all day as we drove straight through from Iowa. We stopped in Russell to fill up with gas and saw they had an A&W. We all got burgers and fries and onion rings and floats to finish. It was so fresh and tasty. A much appreciated hot meal after a long day. Great place!

This A & W is located about 2 miles north of I-70, but well worth the trip. Has great food and root beer! Service is good and quick. Nice to have the old fashion glass mugs! Can use the drive-in or inside seating with WiFi. Give it a try! I think you will enjoy it. Great root beer floats!

Going across Kansas is a long haul. We often promise ourselves a trip to this A & W as a treat. It's the real deal with glass mugs and a drive in where you can park and order. They also have clean restrooms along with delivery and wifi. That's a nice blend of the old and the new. The assortment... More
