The last time I ate at an A&W was a few years ago at the one in Benson, AZ off of I-10. I've eaten there many times and have never experienced any of the problems mentioned above. I think there is one in Tucson at a truck stop off of I-10, but I have never been there. It would be great if we had more, I really like the place.
On a somewhat related note, our first In-N-Out id being built in midtown.
The ones in my neck of the woods were the original style of drive in, with the funky menu/ordering unit, then the car hop came to your car, tray on the window, etc. I don't like root beer, and yet every time we went to A&W I'd get the biggest my folks would allow, then beg for a second.

The photo above IS the original style drive in. You drove in nose-first under the canopy, where a single, huge hand-painted menu board was visible to all vehicles. After about five minutes, a carhop walked up, took your order, and delivered it to the main building. About ten minutes later, she brought all the food to the car on a tray that mounted on the edge of the window.

The Root Beer in a frosted mug is pure heaven. I don't care for their burgers that much though. Their fries (along with BK's) are uneatable, that crispy coating they have on them is disgusting.
Their breakfast menu is the best, I'll have the Classic Bacon & Eggs, over easy, white toast and a hashbrown and coffee. We always stop off at the one in Winfield for breakfast on our way to YLW.
BTW, in regards to their "Burger Family", in this day and age, do you really think that the "Grandpa Burger" should have 3 beef patties on it? Me thinks grandpa should be watching his diet a bit better .....
