A&W - Yuck. Was it always that bad?
I went to the one in RI for the first time in over 10 years.. I don't remember it being bad. But it was.
The hot dogs were OK but the buns were kind of blah.
French Fries - Yuck! I was expecting some nice, greasy, hot fries and instead I got hard, crispy shoe string fries that most likely came from something frozen from Walmart.
Chicken Strips/Tenders - It was like $7 for the Combo with the fries. Nothing special about the tenders. Honestly, Burger King's are better and cheaper and it's about 30 seconds away from A&W.
Chocolate Shake/Malts. Are you kidding me? What was that? I'll stick with Cold Stone.
I haven't been to Spike's yet. I think I'll try there next.
Don't know about RI. BUT< I make it a point to stop at the A&W on Cape Cod each time I visit>>>FOR THE ROOT BEER.............
I NEVER ORDER FOOD, it has always been terrible
I haven't been in a long time, but have fond memories of the root beer in the frosty mug. Can't think of not ordering root beer (diet) at A&W
I used to love their Mama burger, have a friend in Canada who still raves about a Mama burger now and then.
From what I've heard, A&Ws tend to be hit and miss, even for the root beer. The one closest to me has always been good, but it's also A&W's home town, so the locals would probably run riot if the quality ever slipped.
