The staff was kinda cranky and slow...and it wasn't busy there at all. But we liked the ice cream-soft serve. Clean place. You can watch them make your food if you want--and they were very clean/appropriate about meal prep.

We placed our order for a burger and kids meal at 12:18, it wasn't ready until 1:10 . The food was so-so, nothing special. It wasn't very crowded, but everyone around us was also waiting an equally long time. Will not be back. A family...More
