The Yale A&W is by far the best A& W location I have been to. The food is always well prepared and tasty to boot! You can tell the owners (who are community locals) have strict standards that they ensure the food, and service, meet. This "fast food" restaurant yields food that is better quality than the towns other "sit-down" places, not to mention its cleaner and the service is better. They still offer the drive-in, car-hop experience-even in the winter!!! You can't go wrong here!
Lots and lots of '50s and '60s nostalgia, an old style diner with inside seating, as well as outside drive-up service, and a couple picnic tables as well. Very clean and organized, excellent service with a smile. Very cheerful! Two mug sizes for your root beer. Papa burgers on the menu. I ordered some chili-cheese fries and fried mushrooms. When I realized my eyes were bigger than my stomach, I requested a to-go box for the mushrooms (they were just as good reheated the next day). If you are in the Yale area, this is worth stopping for!!
Not much that I can say that hasn't already been said on this one. It's a great atmosphere, extremely clean, and if your aThree Stooges fan make sure you check out the hallway to the bathroom as there's a bit of a shrine going on there....yes I'm serious. The fact that in today's day and age there's an actual honest-to-goodness drive up A & W does this well-maintained is amazing. The only downside is the downside of any restaurant of this type if you wish to go in and eat - there just isn't a lot of running to do so. But there's nearly 25 spots for cars and tray service, and in the summer there seemingly is always some classic vehicles hanging there. Friendly staff, great service.
Went for breakfast with the family. Very good food and service - really typical food prepared well. What's most interesting here is the "decor". What can I say about something like this other than WoW! One wall is a mural - trees, water sorta pretty in an "well it looks good in that spot" kind of way. One wall is sponge painted red and white, but not particularily blended - just sponged and has all sorts of Marily Monroe pictures. Another has a red and gold wall paper with some lighthouse pictures, some floral pictures and a few left over Marilyn pictures. Then there is the half wall. Here you can find very large floral arrangements that contain an odd mixture of roses and fake vines in colors not intended for nature - some of these arrangements are small table size and some are very tall and look like they may have been part of a wedding somewhere in time. Mixed in are some things like a statue of an american indian saluting an eagle three times his size wrapped in an american flag. Look a little further and you will find a dresser covered in magazinges and decorated with gold pillars and artificial grapes. Then there is the 3 foot long freighter carved from a piece of wood. Oh! And a TV playing in every corner. Hmmmm - my mind just couldn't absorb any more. I do have to say that as odd as the decor was the place was homey and the owner is just delightful so the decor only added to the charm.
