The service is TERRIBLE. The food is TERRIBLE. The staff is rude and unprofessional. Dont waste your time in calling and complaining to the customer service located in tampa,they are just as bad.

Checkers is a great place to go for a burger and fries. They are a bit slow but it is worth the wait.

If you expect anything else than a cheap, fast heartburn waiting to happen then don't go. It is what it is.
