Food was great and was a great value. Tons of choices for appetizers, main course and of course a multitude of shakes.

The food was usual fast food. The shake was terrible. It was runny not thick and it tasted like it had food coloring added, it was mint and it didn't taste like mint ice cream at all. I don't know how they made it.

Not a place to have a real meal. The staff is mostly young and more interested in socializing than serving their customers.
