This establishment is closed and now operates as the fro-yo business Purple Cherry. When it was open, they had a short order cook who'd drop fries or a tenderloin in the fryer AFTER you ordered, not before. It closed due to the economy and probably a poor locale. Parking isn't the greatest.

They have daily specials which normally, o.k. but the atomsphere needs improvement many tiems the help are yelling out things as they appear to be short handed and stressed. Food appears to be made with cheap ingrediants (canned). They have signes everywhere about varioous rules, policies that are not welcoming. Cleaniness is a factor, food on booths, dirty condiment container's.... More

They have very good tenderloins. The atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. It's a gas station that happens to sell food. They do have an extensive menu for a gas station and have expanded into barbeque, but we haven't been able to resist the tenderloin so can't comment on that.
