A&W Root Beer Family

The A&W Root Beer family is still in Willcox. Carter's Drive-In is gone, replaced by Adolfo's Taco Shop. I visited on Friday, June 26, 2015, with much trepidation in case the family was gone -- but I was relieved that they were still there. I hope the A&W Family will continue on.

Only Jr. is easily visible from South Haskell -- Mom and "Pop" are behind the building, facing Downen.

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