Still one of the better fast-food places anywhere. This is a quick, fresh and friendly staff location.

Can't fault the service, a bit pricey for fast food in my opinion. I know none of the national burger chains food looks like the food in the pictures on the menu but it seems to be getting worse. I think they keep using the same pictures, or enhance them because they actual burger looks much much smaller than the... More

Besides needing upgrading badly, the bathroom was really dirty. Stall door latch was broken, floor was dirty, everything was worn out, there was a bad odor in the room, and although they have a no-touch hand dryer installed, there is no paper towel to open the door with: after cleaning my hands, I was forced to touch the door handle....
