A&W: Teen Burger at YVR Airport

Foodology February 19, 2014 American, Fast Food, lunch, Richmond


After checking in and going through security at the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), M and I were pretty hungry. There’s not a lot of choices before boarding international flights.

We had to choose from:

  • Milestones
  • Starbucks
  • Tim Hortons
  • Euro Cafe
  • A&W
  • Burger King
  • Subway
  • Hanami Express

It’s all fast food and it’s definitely hard to choose what your last meal before the plane will be.


I actually quite like A&W for the burgers and you can really notice their fresh ingredients. It doesn’t come close to McDonalds. All their beef is 100% pure and contains no hormones or steroids. Also no additives or preservatives.

Their quality has gotten a lot better over the years and I prefer it over the other fast food options.


We got 2 teen burger meals, onion rings, yam fries and cokes.

My favourite sides are the onion rings. The batter is fried till its crispy and the onion is large. I wasn’t a fan of the yam fries, but I never liked yam fries in the first place. M did enjoy the yam fries.


Teen Burger is my favourite and it has lettuce, tomato, bacon, cheese, ketchup, onion, pickles and the burger patty between the two buns. Even looking at the burger, the ingredients look fresh. I ate it all and enjoyed it! Yum.

All the other burger at A&W are pretty good, but you can’t beat the teen burger.

    A&W claims no “added” hormones and steroids. This does NOT mean that their beef is free from hormones and steroids. Their beef is the same as other meat. Although I like A&W burgers, this deceptive and misleading ad campaign makes me sick.
