Breakfast is the best from a fast food chain in my opinion. Grabbed some takeout today. It was hot and fresh. Workers at this location are friendly. Place was tidy

The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is as good as any A & W in the country. What I like best is that I can get a breakfast real eggs and bacon on a plate. This should not surprise me but it did. Fast food when you want it and regular home cooked bacon and eggs when... More

We ate breakfast here, and it was very good. Friendly and clean, you get your coffee and sit at a table and they bring your order to you. Real knife and fork silverware. Great place to eat.

We rank the F.N. produce highest among the many A&W places we frequent. A bit of interesting trivia : If you want to see or meet locals or real old-timers... More

We flew through Fort Nelson and had breakfast at A&W. Not the best food, but good tea and coffee and we were served by two very friendly staff.

I am a morning person and it is nice to be able to go to a small restaurant and have good coffee and a simple breakfast with good friends.

Stopped in for some burgers - what really counts in any drive-thru burger place is the food and the service - what else is there?? - A&W has really turned around as far as food goes - except for some of the old deep fryer items, their menu has undergone a shift towards being somewhat healthy for a fast-food place......
