I had been told that they had the best veggie burgers around. My wife and I stopped in for fries and the burger. Neither of us were impressed with the food but the guys behind the counter were friendly and efficient.

Had a burger for lunch. My order was messed up, but I'm only worried about that because I'm wheat intolerant. The patties are mashed thin to cook quick, but it seemed to take forever compared to fast food joints. The fries were loaded with salt...More

This store Is usually staffed with high school / 20 somethings who could care less about the food or cleanliness. Love the food at other locations, just not this one.

We stopped in while we waited for my new phone to be set up in the Verizon store. We ordered soft drinks and a shake. Shake was good. Thick and chocolaty. What stood out on this visit was the very friendly and smiley staff and...More
