I needed a quick meal and this restaurant's drive through was open before 11 a.m. which was very handy for me. I had a few miles to drive before I could eat and the food was still hot and good.

I rarely drove to McAlester in Oklahoma State. and yet, the Boomer's Long John is always open during 1990s, this has already spoiled the college students in town that no requirement nor incentive to drive to McAlester for fish and chips. Because Boomer has Long John with A&W Root Beer and Pizza Hut Delivery self sufficient. But we all know... More

I don't frequent A&W that often, but when I do I do so because a cold root beer sounds so good. My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our way from Missouri to Texas. Both our meals were good - not great, but the root beer tasted like it had been watered down. I didn't even get a... More

I've never been in an establishment so disgusting! We should've turned around and walked out but my husband wanted food and root beer. Everything you touched felt either greasy or sticky. I couldn't get my grandson into the bathtub quick enough after he sat in the filthy high chair. The food was OK though eating it made me wonder how... More

The food is always really really greasy. Usually you have to wait at least 5-15 mins. Although that's not long, it is a fast food place with a drive through

Occasionally I crave fish and drive through and pick up a couple pieces. Never thought the food was great sort of a bad frying oil taste. I had never been inside. I stopped in in mid afternoon and dined inside. The dirtiest food establishment I'd ever been in. There is no way you could pay me to eat there again.

This is an A&W / Long John Silver's restaurant. My family ordered some food from both restaurants. The service was horrendous; the food was atrocious. We did not finish anything we ordered. Even the A&W rootbeer didn't taste right. If this was the first A&W or LJS I ever ate at, I would never go back to another one.
