We stopped at this A&W many times when we visit LaCrosse. The food is very good and the root beer is good old fashioned A&W in a frosty mug. The waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. There is even a large working jukebox. Great for families!

I am fully aware that this is a fast food chain , but it should still serve edible food . I will say the normal menu options are decent and what you should expect from fast food .

Recently had fried cod at A & W and was very pleasantly surprised. Four nice sized pieces of fish, cole slaw and fries. The fish was better than anything (fried fish) I have had at any restaurant in the LaCrosse area. On Fridays they have all you can eat fish. I don't think you can beat that deal.

This place takes me back. The root beer still tastes great! This is top rung for fast food. Fun for the family and fair prices. The location can be a bit noisy being right off the highway. Otherwise it's a wonderful place to stop.

This is a great family restaurant at reasonable prices for the quality served. They would even let my elderly mom eat off the kids menu since they didn't have senior specials. Great staff, always willing to please. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars, is the echo in the restaurant ... when it's busy, it takes on a bar... More

I like their coney dogs on Tuesday and the fresh root beer hard to beat. They offer other options that are tasty for a drive up.

What no corn dogs? Are you kidding me? You might as well saw no root beer and no chili dogs. Yes, the root beer is good ...................................but I just can't get over the fact that they don't serve traditional corn dogs.

I am not much for fast food places but the buffalo burger was good. Also did enjoy the root beer I am not one who enjoys eating in the car.
