“Meh -- you can do better Harvey's.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This 'go-to' for many North / South travellers is always busy. It doubles as a bus station too, which I have always found quite odd (doesn't really interfere -- just sort of random).

Your typical Harvey's / Swiss Chalet. The people are friendly, but that's all about that stands out.

AND -- as a guy -- I am suggesting they take better care of the washrooms. To gross me out is something to be said LOL. The Women's washroom was the same. My wife was almost nervous about changing our little one there. I overheard a lot of people complaining to Management. Hopefully this is fixed-up next time we're passing through. We have stopped here more than once.

“Service depends on your order of Hamburger or Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

great burgers, always hot, the staff is friendly and usually efficient, however the last time I was in a young server forgot to give me utensils and napkins, this was unusual as I mostly have a hamburger and fries, this particular day I decided to have a chicken dinner

“Food okay but staff need hygiene training”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

There were 2 cashiers. I kept chewing her nails and the other kept rubbing her nose and face. One of the food handlers scratched her head wearing her plastic gloves and then kept serving. Another took off his baseball cap and rubbed his head and hair by the food warming area... Etc. no one washed hands in between or before touching food. Yuck!

“Good service”

At the time I visited, the service was fast and good. Can't say how it was when the lines started filling in.
