“Misleading Advertising”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

TV ads tout Everyday Specials beginning at just $6.49 and show a big burly guy biting into a huge hamburger with a large plate of fries. When I went with a friend this past Tuesday and asked for the $6.49 menu, I was told the only item for $6.49 was "two hotdogs and fries". Not even close to what the TV ad implies. Otherwise, food was okay. The i/2 sandwich and ceasar salad was quite good. Service was good and even our server said she had received numerous complaints about the misleading TV ad.

“No control on what comes out of the kitchen”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Some of the dishes coming out of the kitchen are embarrassing. What is worse is when the wait-staff and managers tell you that the dish is fine and correct. So you have a kitchen that needs to learn how to prepare food and totally ignorant staff that cannot recognize food that should never be delivered to customers.
Shameful.
I attached a picture of what was served when I ordered the Grilled Shrimp. It was supposed to come with Steamed Broccoli and coctail sauce. What I got was boiled salad shrimp that were "warmed" on a grill with no seasoning or flavor and no Broccoli, but french-fries and cole-slaw.
Oh, and I got a lot of excuses why this was "just fine".
