The lunch special is the best deal in Springfield. You get two sanchos and a medium drink for $5.99. They have it ready for you before you can get the money out of your wallet.

I went to the drive through to order a quick lunch. Apparently, they can't take debit cards if you go to the drive through? They made me get out in the rain to pay for my food that I ordered in the drive-through.
