We were visiting Jacksonville and after a busy day wanted something quick and good. We have just recently had one of these open in our area at home but hadn't had the chance to try it yet. So when we saw this location we decided we would give it a try. We have now decided we will be frequenting the one at home. Once you order your food they give you a table tent to place on your table and then bring the food to you. It was very refreshing to have a great experience in a fast food place. The lady that brought our food to us was very pleasant and after telling her that we had one that just opened at home, she told us that her boss and another employee were actually at that location to handle the opening. The food is great; my husband is a very picky eater so he got the wings. They brought a pineapple rum sauce with the wings and I had to twist his arm to even try a tiny bit of it, but then he couldn't stop dipping his wings in it, he loved it!!! I had the Shrimp Tropichop, which is there for a limited time. You basically get to create your own bowl and it was fabulous. This location serves alcoholic beverages as well as non-alcoholic ones too. I would go out of my way to eat at this restaurant again if ever we are back in that neck of the woods. :)
