A&W Root Beer Family

Closed, weeds grown up and appears abandoned, much like everything else in Willcox. You can still take pics with the statues, though.

A&W Root Beer Family

Only Jr. is easily visible from South Haskell -- Mom and "Pop" are behind Carter's, facing Downen.

Teen Burger. A&W Root Beer Family

Great little place, good food, awesome milkshakes! Nice place for a road trip break. PS....milkshakes do cause brain freeze!

A&W Root Beer statues. A&W Root Beer Statues

I found most of the A&W Root Beer family residing here at Carter's Drive-In. Papa and Mama Burger are in back next to the outdoor seating area. Teen Burger stands out front by the entrance, and the mechanism that makes him spin back and forth still works. Didn't see Baby Burger, unfortunately. Carter's used to actually be an A&W stand, and the statues have been there for years.
