Arrived on a Sunday am @ 8 am. Service was awesome, wait time minimal, food was hot and coffee good. What better way to start your day?

Visited here tonight after my granddaughter had finished gymnastics. Copious advertising on tv about how good their beef is, up until today I might have agreed they were pretty good - not tonight. Insipid, warm, greasy, tasteless meat. The fry basket had a piece of patty paper laid on the top with a few fries on the top. I had... More

I haven't tried A&W breakfast in many many years, until today. I'm glad they have an option other than a burger bun for a breakfast sandwich. The hashbrown was amazing, the breakfast sandwich was great, but the coffee was garbage. Staff was a bit slow. I dont understand why they would hand two coffees and a bag of food with... More

This is a frequent visit of mine for a good burger. Always different than the normal burger I find the taste is much better. I love their root beer and the onion rings are not bad. Their French fries are better than they were in the past , soit is a good experience.

Good service and always great food. Never disappointed with this fast-food stop. Teens and root beer are my favorite.

We have been to the Cinema and wanted something quick to eat before we headed home. We haven't been in the A & W in Truro since the re-fit. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. I had an Uncle Burger and it looked just like the picture, no flat, soggy bun here. It was toasted beautifully, crisp... More
