    The light lunch during weekdays (half sandwich and soup) is great for dinner too. Just enough food.

    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.

    Lots of outdoor seating and great for kids. Food is so-so but not a long wait and lots of options.

    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.

    The birthday cake milkshake is to die for. Pieces of cake throughout. The Grand Daddy burger was delicious. Their buns are exceptional so any burger will do

    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.

    Try the Real Mccoy Burger - Bacon cheeseburger with mac and cheese. Side of tots. Not the healthiest, but one of the most delicious!

    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.

    Every time we've been here the service has been incredibly slow. Not a great place if you want to zip in and out. Kids tend to get a bit nuts by the overstimulating environment.

    Mac and cheese on a burger! Need I say more? And the decor is fabulous, the wall paper in the back is a hodge-podge of 80's and 90's tv show themes.

    They have revamped the menu again. Still deciding if I like the changes. But you can't sub turkey on the reuben sandwich even though they sell turkey sandwiches? Lame.

    Mozzarella sticks are the best thing on the menu, do not eat dinner it sucks. Just lunch burgers mozza sticks and tots. And their shakes are good too. Dinner entrees are pricy and awful.

    Ordered the Kitchen Sink Salad ... totally big enough for 2 people. The sweet potato fries were amazing. Don't go if you want to have a serious conversation with anyone, it can be loud in there.
