    Remember to tip! It's amazing what a dollar or two can do for the staff's mood! Maybe they will be more friendly, cuz I know they remember who does and who doesn't!

    Great prices for the quality of food. The orange peel chicken is delicious! The staff however isn't very friendly or personable.

    They change the size of the drink you get for free before 5. I'm not sure if it's true for all drinks now but it's HUGE!

    Watch out for occasional customer service issues. General manager is awesome but some wait staff need some getting used to.

    Check your glass before you drink it. Mine still had lipstick on it meaning they don't wash properly.
