We've been to both the Manassas Mall and the Centreville Road locations, and we've always had great service, even when busy. Best to avoid weekend mornings or Sunday afternoon, if you don't want to wait or if like to have a restaurant with little more elbow room, but there is always something seasonal and fun on the menu and the price is right. The breakfast specials are even portioned well, so you can eat your pancakes there and take eggs home to eat later, unless you are starving when you get there, but you fill up fast. The new hot chocolates are great, and we typically get breakfast items so I can't comment on much else but we do get the toasted clubs and BLTs which are great American food made right.
