The burgers were ok but not any different than what I have tasted from regular fast food joints. The staff was friendly at least and they do offer some tasty drinks.

Take a seat, multiple employees will stand around staring off into space, talking to each other, even walking out of the restaurant, but will be with you shortly. Sums it up. Food was average at best. Wings were over fried and undersauced. Nachos were odd,...More
