Visited last night with my husband and daughter, really looking forward to some wings. We didn't realize that they changed their wings. They are awful and mushy now. Very processed tasting. Also my husbands fries were extremely undercooked. That will be our last visit.

I ordered a dinner size salad and it came full assembled and so soggy from the dressing. Anytime I have ordered salads from other restaurants the dressing comes on the side to avoid this obvious issue with an easy fix.
