Ehhhh slow service and dirty bathroom.

Stopped here for a take out order. I hear a gentleman come out of restroom saying "Whoa don't go in there it's filthy!!" Guys who ordered after me got their food before me. Lesson learned.

Typical Long Johns food. Fast drive through and inside wait service. Also includes and A&W at this location, so can get a burger if you are not into fish. Staff seem pleasant.

Do not use the drive-thru expecting to receive fast service. It took a little over 20 mins from stopping at the end of the line to pulling away with my food and it was after the lunch hour rush. This is not my first experience either. The only reason I went there is because they used to have the best... More

I know someone who worked there. They act like slaves because that is how they are treated. The current general manager Wendy is rude and inconsiderate of her employees. The company is too cheap to buy new uniform shirts which get greasy and dirty quickly due to the nature of the work. They also have a cockroach infestation and once... More

Was excited when I say the place, looking forward to a papa burger. Food wasn't that great, the saving grace was the fresh root beer in the frosty mug. Go for the drink, use the drive thru to get it though.

I stopped in for a quick bite before going to work. I waited in line 5 minutes because the guy ahead of me had a problem with his drive thru order. When I finally placed my order (with a girl in a filthy outfit who would have died if she smiled at anyone), I stepped over to the soda counter... More

I stopped in for a quick mid afternoon burger. I drive by all the time but have never stopped in. The place is awful! The floor was covered in frying oil...everywhere. The whole place was dirty and poorly kept and in terrible need of upgrading. The staff was in slow motion and the other customers around me were complaining to... More

Food is average but not bad for the price. Service is very slow. They seem to have a problem with getting orders correct. I was not disapointed so see that they removed the rootbeer tap. It is now dispensed with all the other soda.
