Locally we call this the "car wash Hardee's" because it is next to the big car wash off 22nd Street on University Avenue. It is not usually busy so you can get fast service. The cook does a build so the food has been prepared ahead of time and sitting under heat lamps. Often times the sandwich is hot but... More

I was impressed. The chicken strips were probably better than Chick-fil-a - they were incredibly fresh and of very high quality for a fast food restaurant. The burger and fries were good as well.

I don't patron fast food places much anymore but I was in the mood to splurge. I did the drive-thru. When I got home I found that I had received another person's order. I called to complain, the manager took my name down for a replacement. I went in a week later and received a replacement meal. I'm surprised a... More
