TheDailyMeal: Fast Food Menus: A Look Back

5 of 10

5) A&W

The first outpost of A and W was opened in 1919, and by 1960 there were an astonishing 2,000-plus locations of the chain nationwide (and in Canada). As evidenced by this menu from that time period from an outpost in Clarkston, Wash., the offerings back then were quite eclectic. You could pick up a burger or hot dog, of course, but sandwiches including barbecue beef and fried ham were available, as well as a burrito. You could also get pork chops, "finger steak," and a burger called the Awful Awful! Nowadays there are a few holdovers from the '60s-era menu, namely the Papa Burger (once accompanied by a Mama, Teen, and Baby Burger), chili dog, and (obviously) root beer, but other than that not much is the same. While the double-decker Papa Burger sold for $0.65 back in the day, an outpost in Kentucky now sells it for $4.57.
