...They need better managment stat! I work in food services, i am normally way more understanding than what i was tonight. I will never return there at that location! The food was very good and so were the cooks. But the floor staffing was ignorant! To say the least!!! ..


...Please rectify this situation as it not overly expensive and greatly raises the quality of your fried products..
