Typical fast food, however the service is always prompt and friendly. I have never experienced fast food staff anywhere else that is consistently friendly and courteous. Kudos to those that are in charge for hiring and training its employees so well!

The hamburg and french fries and fish fries are flat and tastes like cardboard, a far cry from when they first came out.
