The usual reliable American fare we've come to expect from a fast food icon. I had the chili cheese dog with onion rings and a root beer. Brings back memories.

Four of us ate at the food court at mall of America and I decided to get something here. I enjoy their cheese curds so I ordered two portions. I thought the almost $5 price per serving was steep and frankly it was. Received 2 small boxes of hot cheese curds. Unfortunately most of them had exploded in that the... More

I know it was at the mall, and I know it's fast food, but the young guys behind the counter couldn't have been crankier--lots of scowling and general snarkiness (I had to ask the guy to pack the food to go instead of serving it on a tray--he actually dumped the burger into the box and dropped it in a...

One of many food choices at the Mall of America. The food was tasty and the service was quick. Not much more you can ask for. We would go back to A&W again !

This was in an area where you can choose where to eat and our family each chose a different location. My oldest son chose the Kids Meal Chicken Strips and really liked them, and he is a picky eater. Needless to say, the root beer was good.

Before being acquired, A&W had their headquarters here in metropolitan Minneapolis/St Paul. This location sells good cheddar cheese curds that are local. It's a bit salty, but not as salty as their neighbor's (LJS). The batter here is superior to the neighbor's product, but the cheese fresher next door. OBTW, get a root beer float to wash down the saltiness.

Our order was wrong 3times. I never heard anything apology. I was given the famous eye roll. The burgers aren't at all what I had remembered. These were small flat dry and more lettuce than a rabbit would chew. The fries were blah and everyone who was working seemed stressed out and confused but we were only ones in line

We ordered the root beer float. We know the root beer is great and for some this may have been a great root beer float but for us it really needed more root beer. There was too much ice cream and the ratio of root beer to ice cream was all wrong

They had no ice?!? Fries were undercooked and the burgers lacked any flavor. I wouldn't go back again.

yum yum the greasy burger did the trick but A & W is always the best when you get a rootbeer float to go with that burger
