Stopped by there today. Not impressed! Free peanuts in the shell don't make up for the lack of taste! The cheeseburger was dry-in spite of lettuce ,mayo,pickles and grilled onions and -other than the toppings pretty tasteless.The bun had a strange, powdery or floury texture. I'm not a fry fan, and after seeing what appeared to be dry,overdone fries,I did not change my mind. They have soft drinks but no shakes!! Being fairly new to the area, they had at least 10 employees for every customer and a huge number of "manager types" walking around, checking quality,etc. No drive thru. Considerable wait for food! Cannot imagine how they will last in this area where we have numerous choices. Tried the new Counter last week. Now that is a wonderful experience and their fries could become an addiction with me
