Kind of slow
Wanted some onion rings for a quick bite at lunch. It was a tad slow for a fast food joint. Went for the chicken grill and a root beer. Like that the root beer comes in an actual glass mug nice touch. Rings are breaded and have a tasty seasoning to them one of the better rings in town. The chicken grill was small but tastewise met expectations for a fast food restaurant. Be back for the rings and root beer.

Root beer and a family of burgers
A classic burger joint which has a family of burgers and the best root beer around. Frosted mugs and no ice to dilute the drinks is always good. Recently had an Uncle burger which i believe is new... a 5 oz sirloin patty with mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. The fries are pretty boring but the burgers are ok.

Never tried their burgers til a few months ago. Got the Mama burger and quite enjoyed it. Have had a few more since then, so must have been ok! Don't like their fries. They are those ones with a coating on them. Like that they serve diet root beer. Makes me feel less guilty about eating there and drinking a soda :)

Not Worth The Time Or Money
Went in today for take-out. After waiting 5 minutes because only one cash was open (out of two) I ordered one teen burger without lettuce, 1 grandpa burger, 2 orders of fries and two small gravy's. There was no gravy available. Huh? It's on the menu, why is there none at a peak dinner time? Wasn't impressed, but ok... then the wait commenced, 15 minutes later (while I watched an entire line-up of customers be served and leave) my order was confirmed, my bag of food was given to me and I left. Got home and found a teen burger with lettuce and some veggie deluxe thing (is this the new grandpa burger??? I think not). Not what I ordered! Thoroughly annoyed and will NEVER return. Furthermore, since this restaurant opened several months ago, it has completely gone down hill as far as courteous service, promptness and the kitchen area is filthy.

Gotta love stand alone A&W
The frosted glass mugs for rootbeer and the oldies music playing in the background make this A&W a new favorite of mine!

Good but can be slow
I hadn't really tried A&W before so I thought I would give this new location a try (it's fairly close to where I live so that helps). I have been here a few times now, and I have to say I like there burgers. The fries are nothing special and onion rings where inedible (at least to me).

The speed has been really slow to acceptable. One time they where extra slow but they made up for it by giving me a card for a free teen burger and drink. I have been to Burger King next door and it was at least as slow but never offered anything to make up for it.

Over all I have been back a few times and will likely keep going back (but I am never getting the onion rings again.

Nothing fast about it.
I tried the new A&W in Nepean. I went in on a Thursday at about 5p.m. The first thing that I noticed is how pricey it was for a fast food place. I ordered a Papa Burger Combo and the kid at the cash asked if I'd prefer fries or rings. When I said "rings" he told me it would be an extra dollar! What is this? I cannot remember this happening at the other A&w's in the city. So, they keep taking orders even though they cannot keep up. My combo got out in 11:47 minutes (I watched the screen blink all sorts of panicky warnings while the manager screamed for "fries up front.") When I got it, it was okay at best. The fries were awful. The burger was not worth the extra $$ over the competition. The best part I guess was the large root beer in an actual glass mug. The problem here is having the teen staff hover over you to finish it so they can wash it/make sure nobody steals it. Overall, pretty awful visit with the price and the waiting. If I wanted to wait this long I would have gone to a regular restaurant.
