The only A&W we stop at in Penticton is the one in the Cherry Lane Shopping Centre Food Court. It doesn't seem to matter what time of day or which day we stop here there is usually a small line up at the A&W kiosk. It has not so much to do with service (typically only one person is out... More

I just stopped for a quick lunch and appreciate that their burgers have no antibiotics. My order was simple - teen burger, fries and Root Beer. It took a few minutes. The server picked up my order and put it on my tray. However, when she picked up my fries, the ones that were sitting up over the top of... More

The custom burger was made quickly and accurately. I like the no antibiotics policy of the chain and thought the burger was tasty. The window server was good and change made was correct.

Nothing like a frosty glass of root beer with your burger - was so nice on a hot spring day. We choose to eat outside as the air conditioning was so cool we didn't want to eat inside; only problem was that the restaurant is on a corner with a traffic light and the traffic was very busy as was...

Really, really great fries! Homemade, handcut style fries. SO Delicious! The wraps and burgers were super fresh and delicious. The lettuce on the burgers and wraps was fresh and still crisp. None of their food resembles "fast food". All of the staff were friendly and our large order came out surprisingly quick. Great job you guys. We'll be back again... More

Over the past year, while Don and I have been finding that most restaurants have portions of food so huge, you either leave half of it or ask for the proverbial doggy bag and then it sits in the fridge for days before being tossed. Until now. The last few months we have 'dined' out at A & W enjoying... More

Hi All. Go there for the hot coffee. Yes, hot. Most places do not serve it hot anymore. Hard to believe but true. Thanks.

Recently went through the drive-thru and got a Chubby Chicken Burger. The burger was hot and cripsy and the right amount of mayo and lettuce. Plus the chicken tasted very good as it was hormone and antibiotic free. Plus hope to go back soon to get some Chubby Chicken as I find this is a great treat once and awhile.

Not the friendliest A & W that we have been to. We felt that we were an inconvenience. Tables cleared of dishes but not clean. Just a disappointing visit as we travelled through the area.
