AW is a fast food restaurant with all the accommodations of a full service facility. They have a drive thru and a sit down dining room to relax and enjoy the oldies on our juke box. This restaurant is famous for their AW root beer floats and frosty mugs of refreshing root beer. Anyone visiting AW should definitely try their Coney Cheese Dog. It is a classic chili cheese dog topped with diced onions. AW is known for its drive-in restaurants of the past; but presently, we are also known for our great customer service, classic menu, and oldies playing our juke box. Everyone enjoys all aspects of our restaurant. Rudy, the root bear, is the restaurant's mascot, he likes to hug the children and give out balloons. Several times a year you can stop by and see Rudy either out in the parking lot or hanging out inside the restaurant enjoying the music. The original AW was opened in 1919, with the root beer being homemade with a secret recipe of herbs and spices. But the restaurant in Wausau, Wisconsin didn't open until 2001, but we are still making our own root beer and making our classic hamburgers. They do offer daily ice cream specials year round at our restaurant. We offer specials for birthday parties and also have Rudy, the root bear, make an appearance at the birthday parties for the children as well.
