The food is average: burgers, hot dogs, chicken. A few salads. Good fries, plain and sweet potato, and onion rings. Service is super slow and parking is very tight. The ladies do come out to the outer parking spots. There are several tables on the...More

This is a great roadside stop for a quick meal or just the float. they still have "carhops" that place a tray on your car window and take your order. All the usual highway menu items are available with fast, friendly service.

This is such a beautiful spot to stop for a root beer! A and W's are very rare this day and time. The root beer was very good and the view of the mountains is lovely! Definitely worth a stop!

The food is average but the experience isn't. If you want a time capsule of the 1950s and happy days it's right here in Middlebury. I recommend the root beer floats. They can be a full meal.

This was my first time at an A&W and it was what I expected. The food was good (I had a burger and root beer float) and service friendly and fast. I had been to Sonic’s previously, it is along the same lines, but more...More
