A&W Burgers Chicken Floats – Lexington, Kentucky

After having just visited the A&W Corporate Headquarters in Kentucky and heard about the new concept stores, we were pumped to try the food.

I was not a fan of root beer so I figured I’d give it another shot since it’s made daily at these A&W locations. The other significant changes are fresh beef burgers and hand-breaded chicken tenders, all part of the Burger Beast wheelhouse.

We sit down to what can be best described as a buffet of food courtesy of our friends at A&W.

It’s a lot to go over, so I want to point out the high highs.


I’m now a root beer addict, that should tell you how incredible A&W’s root beer is. We went back to A&W every day afterward (4 days total) to get a frosty refreshment till we left Lexington. And don’t get me started on those root beer floats.

That coney dog, just wow!

The burgers as I mentioned earlier are fresh beef patties with the nicest of crusts on the outside. These meat sandwiches were perfect burger specimens.

Why are these chicken tenders so far from me? On our 4th and last consecutive visit to A&W, we ordered chicken tenders again to wash down our root beer or was it the other way around. I don’t remember. Damn, they were good.

Congratulations to A&W on the Burgers Chicken Floats concept; it’s an out of the park grand slam.

Now for the moment of truth, when will A&W return to South Florida? In the meantime, I’ll be impatiently waiting for my root beer fix.
