I love this place. Tenders are always hot and fresh. House sauce is delicious. There is usually a wait at the drive thru in the evenings and it can take 10 to 15 minutes. That's because they cook to order. The baked beans are some...More

I love this place so much. I always get the chicken tender dinner. It's a mixture of chicken tenders, fries, mac & cheese, with homemade honey mustard sauce freshly cooked to order with a very friendly staff. Don't forget to ask for lemonade as your...More
