Old time A&W root beer brings back memories of the best root beer ice cream floats! Rt 66, Holbrook, Arizona has an original A&W menu and speaker box inside Farr Service and A&W walk up window restaurant. First, we got gas from very old style gas pumps and you don’t pay until after pumping. Once inside the throw back store, I talked with the man of few words behind the counter and he told me the A&W stand used to be down the street. 14 years ago it moved into the gas station store. Times may have changed with modern gas pumps, but root beer floats historically stay the same.
