Sadly, development has taken the better of an iconic location for many, which brought back memories, and was also a convenient place to meet due to its easy parking.

This is the few A & W around and located right in the PJ area next to LRT as well. Free parking and good A & W root-beer float & some desserts.

Gone are the days when the burgers and coney dog was soo good! Now we have tasteless food and flat sweet root beer. The Pirate burger was all hype and the boiled corn was soggy! ...wish we could have it just like in the good old days!

Still brings in many nostalgic memories of yesteryears. The food & beverage menu, the environment hasn't change at all, which in this case, is a good thing. Though have to highlight that price has increase quite a lot which its only affordable as once in a while treat.

You think that most franchised food outlets have standard operating procedures enforced by the parent company. This one seems to have been given the miss. Very poor hygiene - don't visit their toilet! Very poor service as well.

This place is normally packed even to wee at night. I used to come here often for their coney dog, float and waffle ice cream. The place looks a little rundown and rats come out and play at night so be wary when you sit outside. Good place to organize a kids party. Parking are strictly for customers only.

This definitely one of the oldest fastfood restaurants in PJ/KL. ME and my secondary schoolmates used to go there in the late 70's early 80's. Nothing much has changed except the car park infront of the entrance which has been replaced with permanent seats. Mrnu is stilll the same. I went for the famous coney dog and fries and root...
