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.
