Apart from the namesake brand of root beer, the A&W menu is focused on The Burger Family, a lineup of hamburgers introduced by the U.S. A&W chain in the early 1960s, mostly discontinued in the 1980s in favour of a more standard menu, then reintroduced in Canada and expanded upon beginning in the late 1990s.
The original Burger Family lineup consists of the Baby, Mama, Teen and Papa burgers. They are still sold today along with other burgers named after other family members:
- Baby Burger: small beef patty, ketchup, hamburger bun
- Mama Burger: regular beef patty, onion slice, pickles, ketchup, mustard, Teen sauce, sesame seed bun
- Teen Burger: same as Mama, but with extra toppings (lettuce, tomato, bacon, processed cheddar cheese)
- Papa Burger: same as Mama, but two beef patties instead of just one
- Grandpa Burger: same as Mama, but three beef patties instead of just one
- Uncle Burger: 5-oz. sirloin beef patty, ketchup, mustard, pickles, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, onion slice, sesame seed bun
- Grandma Burger: prime rib beef patty, mayonnaise-based sauce, grilled onions, hamburger bun
- Buddy Burger: one or two small beef patties, mustard, ketchup, Teen sauce, grilled onions, hamburger bun; value burgers, available in "little" or regular versions
- Mini Sirloin Twins (sliders, sold in pairs): miniature beef patty, processed cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, red onion, miniature bun
The only current non-"Family" member of A&W's beef burger lineup is the Mozza Burger, consisting of a beef patty, lettuce, tomato, bacon, mozzarella cheese, and Mozza sauce on a sesame seed bun.
Another 1960s-era offering, Chubby Chicken, returned to the menu shortly after the reintroduction of the Burger Family. This includes fried chicken pieces as well as breaded chicken strips and breaded chicken burgers. A grilled chicken sandwich, the Chicken Grill, is also available.
Breakfast menu items include the Bacon N' Egger, Sausage N' Egger, and Ham N' Egger, each consisting of the respective meat as well as an egg and processed cheese on a sesame-seed hamburger bun (unlike most fast-food chains which serve breakfast sandwiches on English muffins or biscuits).
Other offerings include the Veggie Deluxe (veggie burger with mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles), and traditional hot dogs as well as the Whistle Dog (topped with cheese and bacon). Available sides include french fries, poutine, and thick-cut onion rings. Drinks include the aforementioned A&W Root Beer and other Coca-Cola soft drinks, Allen & Wright coffee, milkshakes, and A&W Root Beer floats (made with pre-portioned scoops of frozen ice cream).
The Canadian menu has some similarities to the current offerings of the American chain, but (not surprisingly given their independent management) also diverges in many respects. The only Burger Family product currently available by name in U.S. locations is the Papa Burger, although it differs significantly (adding lettuce, tomato, and cheese slices which are not included by default on the Canadian product). However, the American "Original Bacon Cheeseburger" appears to be almost exactly equivalent to the Teen Burger available in Canada. Notable products on the U.S. menu not available in Canada include deep-fried cheese curds, cheese fries, and soft serve-based products such as sundaes.
