Don’t get confused by the name—there’s not a shred of corporate interest here. An A&W as early as 1957—the franchise agreement expired in 1982—the current indoor counter and the outdoor tables are crowded with young families and old-timers alike relishing the simple joys in life—like this standardized four-ounce patty (always well-done) on an enriched white-flour bun. It may not be cutting edge, but the level of freshness is enough to make a red-headed Ronald weep with envy.
