The food is average at best and portions are always small (even if you don't pay a lot). It takes a long time to get food and sometimes you barely get any service. The bathrooms at this location needed a really good cleaning (overflowing trash can, foot prints on the toilet seat). Just nothing special about the food or service.

Not to make excuses for them, but they are going through a staffing transition. All positions were available for hire (including GM) in the classifieds as of yesterday... The last time we dined was not great. I treated my boys out to dinner while their Dad was out of town on a business trip. We waited 15 minutes to get... More

Took 1 1/2 hours to get our food. Forgot half of it. All the staff standing up front together talking instead of working.

Wanted something different for lunch. Chili mac was great, not too spicy. Just right. Shake was an added bonus.

I have been to this location at lest 8 times. The last two time it was super bad. It took us a hour and a half to get our food. The hamburgers were cold and over cooked.. People would get their food but waited twenty minutes for your shakes. They always know ahead of time that the bus is coming.

We've been here 45 minutes, and no food. There was one waitress until a few minutes ago (10:30 am). She had about 25 customers to take care of. Poor girl! I would never stop here again.

The service here is extremely slow. The staff do not seem to care and are not at all friendly. I stood at the register, trying to pay, for ten minutes today. Several people saw me and we're doing nothing, but didn't bother to speak or help me. Finally, the manager came over and said it would be a few minutes... More

We figured this would be a safe bet. Big mistake. Shake order for 4 [that ordered shakes] was messed up, they were out of Coke, server never brought replacement choice, PLASTIC wrap in my salad, fries brought instead of apple sauce and the receipt was not credited for the non-existent soft drink.

Came in for lunch. We ordered chili as an appetizer, it was good but there was all but zero meat. We ordered off the $4 menu. I got the Cajun burger, he got the chili 3 way. We also ordered a large cheese fry and mocha shake, both were very good. My burger was good. Now the chili 3 way... More

We came in Saturday 11/14 at about 11pm. Service was friendly. Our food came quickly, we were one of two tables in the restaurant so I'm sure that's why. Staff was playing Skrillex very loud in the back of the house. You could hear it loudly in the dining room. I'm all for Skrillex but it wasn't very professional.
