We have been going to Rattlers for years and we have always had a great meal there. They are fast, consistent and a reasonable price. We even have a favorite waitress, Nancy, who always makes us feel welcome.

Pros: The food is delicious. The prices are reasonable. We have eaten here many a time and most recently decided to use their catering service. They were spot on! I don't think you can beat the price for what you get, and they delivered right...More
