    Meh...I think it's just okay. We just went last weekend. Turkey burger was a dry hockey puck. Regular burger was a falling apart mess, although my husband said it tasted good. Mac and cheese was a step above Kraft, pretty tasteless, no bread crumbs. Service is always slow. Don't think I'll return.
    It's been discussed here on this board many times, if you want others opinions, a search will find them for you.

      Burger only, maybe the fries, but only order the burgers....and beer and wine of course!

        The fries started out good...they pack them so tightly into those cardboard containers that by the time you get past the ones on top, the rest are all steamed and soggy. The crispy ones on top were tasty though.
        We ordered the mac & cheese because I was looking at their pictures on Facebook and it looked delicious, bread crumbs, the real deal...major bait and switch on that one! And the photos of the pizzas looked nothing like the pizzas I saw at the next table.

          it's amazing what they can do with photoshop these days! FYI I alwyas take the top off take out fries or ask the folks to poke a whole in the packaging so the steam releases

        With other choices, jfood would not rush back. The time he went there the lettuce was brown, the tomato just OK and the burger was pretty good. He really liked the sweet potato fries thoug. Jfood would probably give a gentleman's 6-7 as a rating.
