“out of chicken , rice and everything”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I live in the area I am referring to the store near sawgrass mills mall- I went through the drive through at 11:45 pm - they close at 12 oclock - they had no chicken pork rice beans - basically I think all they had was yucc- this has happened a couple times before - I have not been there in many months- but ths is crazy - i gaurantee u will NEVER go through mcdonalds and they will tell you we are out of hamburgers- spoke to regional mgr at least 2x- think their food cutting costs are too tight and the workers are only wanting to get out of there as fast as possible- also if you have a restaurant across from bank atlantic center aka concert /hockey venue - maybve get a schedule to see when things are scheduled - very ignorant staff and on duty mgr seemed to have a hard time speaking english - still not sure what is going on with this place- it is a shame great locationa nd great food if they had some to sell :( do not go after 11pm they may be out of food!!

“A little more healthy choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

They serve good food, health choices and great taste for great price. Nice selection of sides and very little over fried food that you see at most fast food places

“Quick and easy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

For fast food this place is decent. The prices are fair and the food is quick. This place sells a lot of chicken and they grill it instead of frying. I had the tropi chop bowl where you can choose your meats and other times like rice and beans. So if you are really hungry and in a hurry this is the place to go.

“First time visit, excellent value”

I loved the food here. Grilled low cal options are so great! The counter staff was good about answering questions. I ended up buying soup I absolutely loved because of her help.
