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.

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.

This combo franchise of AW Root Beer and Burgers couple with Long John's fish menu makes a nice array of choices for a group of family or friends. This is fast food- period- no lofty expectations.
