I lived here 28 years ago and have fond memories of my dad bringing me to eat in the Caboose, so imagine my excitement when I come into town for a visit 28 years later and the caboose is still here!!! I get my 11 year old son and drag him in to give him the same experience I had, and the restaurant just reeks of filth, even the flame broiled smell couldn't touch it, so after taking a few pictures of him in the caboose we left not daring to eat here....makes me very sad...hope they will clean it up before my next visit!!!

When it comes down to McDonalds or Burger King, I always try to steer towards BK. In the last year, I've had 10 wrong orders at McD, and only one at BK (which was corrected very quickly without any hassle, unlike McD). The food is usually tastier and fresher (well, for fast food anyway, haha) than the competition.

While the staff can sometimes be testy, most of them really haven't been thrown through much training other than an orientation, and I know a lot of people who's first job has been this place. Without proper management directing them into a positive environment, sometimes people just do whatever they feel like doing. I've never dealt with snooty staff at this location, so in the end i'd recommend it as a great place in PI for fast food. If you're that worried about your order being wrong, take a second to glance in the bag before you leave, if there's a problem, the staff take care of it and apologize for the error.

The high school kids that work there are jerks and will mess with your food if you are rude to them or if they just decide they don't like you. Don't go if you care about sanitation.

Occasionally you want something a bit different than McDonald's, but you don't want to pay Arby's prices, and can't wait forever in the line at KFC/Taco Bell. Burger King it is. Good luck getting an order that's correct. 9 times out of 10 they get the order wrong and/or forget something. I will give them this though, the service has been getting better (we seldom eat here because of past experiences). Recently we had a coupon and decided to give B.K. another try. Finally, instead of testy and non-personality type staff, we were greeted with a smile at the window! They were still a bit slow and didn't quite know what to do with the coupon but, at least they were apologetic about the situation. AND, they actually managed to get the order right! I mean, it's pretty sad when even my 9 year old pipes up from the back seat saying, "I'd rather go to McDonald's, this place always gets my order wrong". So, there's a 50/50 chance you may or may not have a pleasant experience.
