I had the eggs Bennie with AVOCADO. It came with guacamole. Yes there is avacodo in guacamole. There is also tomatoes in ketchup. If I had ordered the tomatoes would I have gotten ketchup instead? Won't be back.

This chain has its ups and downs. A few years ago this place was excellent. My meal here was not so hot: my order was wrong in 2 respects. The washroom was grubby and there were no paper towels in the washroom.
