I got a cheese quesadilla and the middle had slightly cool, unmelted cheese. See pics. Yea, for whatever reason, it does taste different! We used the drive through. Clean outside. Ok staff. Family friendly. Prices good. Lot parking. Marcy’sDinerTantrumScale 5/5- NoScreamingKids.

Dazzled by a TV ad I stopped to pick up a few things. The fare we received was NOT equal to the items shown in the ads. The food was bland and small in size, again, not like the ads. I've moved on to Taco...More
