Never use in store pick up because it takes about 20X longer than going to the store and finding it yourself.

Food is actually very good. Prices are good. Service is super quick and they have a web site to order from. What else can you ask for?

Um, I hate shopping. So I hate all malls. Although, this place is in a pretty good location to get to and has pretty good parking.

Solid food but if you can, call before you go to pick up because it can take some time. Nice people here too.
