Stopped for dinner, they were out of potatoes, wraps, and some soups. Very disappointing. Restaurant wasn't very clean either.

We like to call ahead and pick up at the window. Great place for lunch. You avoid any crowd by calling ahead. Just another chain but the food is consistent.

The sandwiches are always great. The menu has a wide variety to choose from. The staff is very friendly and professional. Looking for a easy in and easy out kind of place this is it.
