I know, I mention A&W often in this space, but it's my kids' all-time favorite restaurant, so I'm there often. Recently, I discovered the restaurant's veggie burger. It's not on the menu, but boy is it good: substantial and flavorful, but not overly greasy like a lot of fast-food fare. They put a special sauce on the bun (taco sauce? salsa?) to give it some zest. Cost: $3.99. A&W is at 1404 G St., Modesto.
