    I got in because its decoration, so American! And I decided to ask for something I'd never found in Argentina. It was crispy chicken on waffles. Fortunately for me, it was very good.

    Their shakes are a pure taste of heaven. My favorite is the Orange creamiscle but don't leave without getting a slice of chocolate cake. It comes with milk, however which way you like it.

    I'm a little upset that a sandwich with a name as stupid as "Chicken-lickin Sandy" is actually delicious. The whole place reminds me of a Denny's redesigned by a birthday clown.

    Don't fall for the fried chicken Fridays here! It's only a basket, not a bucket, and is only a half chicken. And it's not even that good. Good breakfasts, burgers, sandwiches. Fried chicken = fail.

    Pancakes LOOK impressive, but they're not. At all. They could be cooked in the air. No crispiness, no taste, no texture. They're just dry and fall apart. McD's steamed pancakes have more taste.
