Whether I am stopping in for lunch, meeting a colleague, or going thru the drive-thru for lunch on the go; the service is always quick and friendly - and the food is consistently excellent.

I had a quick stop while driving to the airport. Ran in, grabbed a Teen Burger and a root beer. Root beer was served in a frosty mug and the burger was fresh and delicious.

I did not know until 3 years ago you can get over easy eggs from A&W. I couldn't believe the quality of the eggs too, bright orange like fresh farm eggs... Better than most restaurants. I love the staff there too, coming around filling your coffee... This is fast food? Love it.

Went here for breakfast with the family. Service was incredible. Friendly, fast (the food had arrived at our table quicker than we did!) and a nice clean and bright establishment. The food was great too. Better than we all expected.

After putting in a long shift at work, I decided to go through the A & W drive thru to pick up a quick meal for my husband. Who wants to cook when they are exhausted from work?? So, I took the long route home and went through the drive thru ordering a 2 piece chicken dinner with fries and... More

One usually knows what to expect at a franchise fast food outlet but this establishment fell far short of our expectations dry and overcooked burgers smothered in sauce a totally inedible lunch we will find the time to attend a real restaurant when we are in Castlegar next

Any time I have been in the A & W, the staff is friendly and the food is good value for the cost. Breakfast is my favourite meal.

About a month ago I went into Castlegar and decided to go check out Joey's for breakfast. They have a really good breakfast menu, and when we went to order the waitress told us that we could mix and match didn't have to be exactly the way it was on the menu. You get a healthy portion and in my... More

This is one of the best A&W restaurants I have been in. It is my favourite burger (the teen). This restaurant is quite large, kept very clean and has excellent staff. They are always very friendly and accommodating. There is lots of parking area, especially for bigger vehicles.

Thank Nova52
