This is a great place for a quick burger as we discovered when travelling on the Coquihalla towards Vancouver recently. Fast and friendly service. Good hot burgers and fries.

We went to the take-out section and ordered Teenburgers and fries. Everything was not just hot, the Burgers were especially tasty, probably to some tangy sauce. We were very happy with the food and the friendliness

Travelling home during Covid restrictions and stopped here for lunch. It was a good choice and we were able to safely do take out and eat it by our car. Service, food and prices were reasonable.

My husband had the big burger that he enjoyed and I had the Cod Wrap. It was great and fresh tasting but the wrap looked like it was thrown together. Maybe they can take an extra few seconds to make up the wrap. The service...was good, the water served in a glass drink container rather than a paper cup with a plastic straw. We recommend this for fast food and will be back.More

During our visit to Canada we went for the first time in our lives to an A&W. It was GREAT. Very nice and fresh burgers. Never had drinks before in nice glasses in a fastfood restaurant. A lot of retired locals are using this restaurant...as a meetingpoint. Interesting to talk to and get the change to learn more about the history of the city. The personnel is very friendly. We come back!More

A&W is one of my favourite fast food places. Sadly, this was one of the worst A&Ws I have ever been to. I came in at noon to grab a quick lunch. The place was busy, however, the term “fast” food did not apply. It...took 15 minutes from the time I entered the restaurant until I received my meal. When I finally got the food, the burger & fries were barely warm and the pop was flat. I think it would have been faster to use the drive thru, then park and bring the food back inside to eat. Tables were dirty, the washroom was a total mess. The try return area was overflowing with trays and empty glasses. Will avoid this A&W in future.More

Typical "dub", drive through, decent parking, right on a through street. Nice little patio outside. Quick and fast service. Decent numbers of people there so the food is always fresh. Usually have a teenburger or a "sausage and egg with cheese". Good every time.

It's a chain but the staff here make the visit special. Restrooms, restaurant always clean. Lots of retired locals have made it their "hangout."

So I'm bold. I was getting a root beer after asking how to get to Nicola Lake. I happened to ask if they had such a thing as a birthday mug. The manager gave me an ice cream puck free in my root beer for...a root beer float. Thanks very much. Nice customer service.More

We were planning on trying the hitch n post restaurant on Sunday but they were closed so we stopped in at this location. By far the busiest A&w I have been to. Sunday at 1 pm and every table was full with twenty people at...the till trying to order. To the staffs credit they handled it amazingly well and got our food to us in under 5 minutes. It was obvious they could have used a few more bodies to help clear tables and clean, but I thought they provided remarkable service for what they had to deal with. Food was hot and prepared correctly. 5 star for fast food, 5 star for an A&w, 3 star for what is available in general.More

It's been several years since I've dined here and after part of the morning in Lower Nicola my wife and I were getting hungry on our way home through Merritt. We decided on A&W as we are familiar with the menu. We rolled in part...way through noon hour and expected a delay. There was a short line and the two girls on the counters were dealing with it, and the drive through, with ease. Just before it was my turn to order a customer had a mistake with his order and staff did a great job of correcting the problem. I ordered two Mama Burgers (with cheese), fries and small root beers. The check-out girl saved me a few cents with a change to the order and I was happy with that. The food was delivered to our table quickly. The line up reformed while we were eating and still no one had to wait very long for service. This is a fast, well-run A&W. Clean inside and out although the washrooms look a bit tired. I'll stop here again, without hesitation. Thank you!More

Went in for lunch before going fishing. The Teen burger combo with Root Beer in a frosty mug is always something you can count on at A&W. Had a coupon so treated a friend on the two can dine for $$ menu. Service is fast...and friendly. Definitely recommended!More
