I like using the coupons. Breakfast only costs me $3.99 @ A&W.
I get coupons in the mail from almost all the other fast food chains, but don't believe A&W has ever given me any. Where can I get these coupons to try out the breakfast?

Only started eating at A&W earlier this year and prior to that I'd never gone before. Tried it out because there was a RFD thread here that said the coffee was superior to McD's, so it was a must I give it a try just for that alone.

BTW -A&W will make you burgers /fries/rings even at breakfast time.

Today I used the online coupon to get free fries & rootbeer with my Teen burger. Yonge /Richmond location, 830AM

Note - it does take longer worth the wait. Oh, frosty mugs there too!

Email has some coupons, but other coupons are the luck of the location. Sometimes someone stands outside handing out coupons, but how good they are may depend on location:

What I found weird is that they'll even do that full breakfast dealie to go. I don't do it anymore, but I used to get the egg/saus/bacon/toast to go like once a week.

Not weird at all. Other places such as Sunset Grill will do breakfast take out.

Their "egg McMuffin"...is actually better than McD's - very impressed !
I agree, outside of their hash browns, which I give McD's a narrow edge, I find A&W better for breakfast. Seems fresher.

I remember when A&W was a drive-in restaurant, as in pull into a parking spot by an order board, give them you order and they bring it to you on a tray that hung off your door window opening.
Your age is showing. :twisted:

Then again I remember the A&W drive-in in Georgetown when I was a kid. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Damn you guys.
Just read this thread and now I'm craving A&W - nothing beats those onion rings, frosted mugs that are so cold that ice starts forming on top of the root beer, and those burgers yummm.

I was in the area of Dufferin & Bloor today expecting that the new A&W there would be open by now.
So disappointed. I wonder what's taking them so long to open??!!!

Still prefer Dennys - free breakfast on your birthday and $6-7 Grand Slams on weekdays.

A&W is decent if there is a sit down near you. The one near us is in a gas station.

...and as I mentioned above, a gas station is not what you want if you expect a frosty mug. Plus, the fries will be served in the traditional paper holder, not the metal reusable holder that the restaurant locations use.
Keep your eye open. New restaurant locations are popping up all the time.
(The newest one is expected to be Bathurst & Bloor, but I'm still not sure what's going on over @ Dufferin & Bloor...)

a new one is opening at Wilson & Billy Bishop Way (where the TTC parking lot used to be). Under Construction now. Probably be ready by late Fall, the earliest. This would be pretty convenient for me as it's on my way to work.

Hey those giant seasoning salt containers don't install themselves (isn't that their "secret" burger spice?)!
