The A&W Rootbeer Stand in Lake George has the dubious distinction of being the stickiest restaurant I have ever been to. It also has the dubious destinction of being in the same conglomerate family as Long John Silvers. Not as dubious however is the history of A&W.
They were the first curbside food stand, the first chain restaurant and until they began canning it, you could only get one of their sodas at an official stand. They still serve their draft brew fresh daily and it's still pretty darn good.
And even the stickiness is understandable once you see the mammoth over flowing floats that come your way, carried in the arms of the local teen girls, slinging rootbeer and cheese curds for college funds. And speaking of cheese curds, I know it sounds unbelievable, but they are actually really tasty.
Order a small unless you can handle a mug of rootbeer with two fist size soft serve mountains in your tummy.
