The chicken wasn't made from fresh, but frozen. The restaurant was clean, mainly because there were hardly any customers. I'm not sure if this... More

This location has changed names to Firebox Grill. This was probably an attempt to escape the awful glen-gene banner that reeks of low quality food. We placed an order for two philly cheese steak subs and fries. The cashier did not apply our coupon from mint magazine but we expected this as she paid zero attention to the order. The... More

Nothing special about the place. We went New Years Eve just before they closed and the girl running the Drive Thru had a little attitude with me, when we got to the window a different girl came to the window and appoligized for her attitude, not sure what her problem was. The food was just okay and it wasn't expensive... More

I asked the wait staff what several different menu options were like and they had never tried them before. Average food for an average price.

Tried this place today just to see what my friends were bragging about. But I'll pass! Service was great, But food wasn't good :( . The burger wasn't anything special and the Gyro well...needs improvement big time. Will not come back.

I eat at this establishment whenever I am in the area and every experience has been positive. Prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly. Restaurant is very clean and there is the added convenience of a drive through if that is your preference.

Horrible food that was overpriced. It is near the interstate, meaning they just want your money once because you will not return.

My husband had a turkey sandwich and I had a jalapeno cheddar burger. His turkey was nice and lean, and my sandwich was tasty, even if the jalapenos set my mouth on fire. Serves me right I guess....lol

I tried their Falafel Sandwich and it was great. It took a while to prepare it (as I was driving through) but it was worth the wait.
