Always get the Bacon Ranch Salad and it's a good bet. Nothing else on the menu appeals to me. Seems all of the Mickey D's have a playplace now and it takes over most of the restaurant which makes it kind of a drag if you're not carting your offspring around with you. This one has more dining room space, however, so it's an ok spot to sit and have lunch which is unusual for a mickey d's these days. Actually, you're better off going inside than using the drive-thru as it's always a traffic mess. Never had a problem with the food or service, just waiting on the retirees to get their drinks at the fountain is the only minor irritant. They could use more fountain space if they're going to run it this way.

Seems all of the Mickey D's have a playplace now and it takes over most of the restaurant which makes it kind of a drag if you're not carting your offspring around with you. They've improved the drive-thru to two lanes now and I've never had a problem with service. Just recommend you stay out of the dining room unless you've got a bunch of kids with you.

I frequent this place on the weekends. Staff is friendly and the food is better than Burger King. Probably the better of the fast food fare in the area. If I ever had a problem with an order it was my own fault. Just remember, it's a fast food chain so the menu is really not something they have control over. I've never had a problem making a substitution even in a combo meal and the prices are on par with other area fast food restaurants. I like the raspberry iced tea as well as I like to get something other than soda once in a while and the tea isn't overly sweet. Guacamole Bacon and Western Bacon $6 burger's are probably the best on the menu. Chicken sandwiches are a bit weak but that's the menu and out of their control. Quality is still good.

I've been to this subway exactly twice. Once a few years ago where I got what I believe to be food poisoning from a seafood sub and a second time a few months ago. I went through their drive through because they lock the front door 1/2 an hour before closing time. The attendant at the window spoke very broken english and I had a hard time explaining what I wanted through their crappy drive through speaker. The sub was light on toppings and I was overcharged by $1 for a foot long combo meal. I got charged $10.48 for the same combo that 3 other Subway's were charging $9.48 in the same area. Attendant was rude, dismissive and really shouldn't be in the service industry. I almost suspect that if she knew who I was, saw this review and had the opportunity she would likely spit in my food. Not recommended. Drive through may be convenient but you'd better have the toppings memorized and you won't get any say as to how much you get.

Always use the Drive-thru as the seedy types hanging around make the environment a bit hostile. They just opened the dining room 24 hours now and I feel bad for the staff. I've never had a problem with the food, gotten the wrong order or been overcharged. Staff is friendly. Here's a tip with any fast food restaurant. Treat the people who work there like people instead of gutter trash and maybe you'll get better service. That said, they need to get an off-duty cop over there to make the place a bit less scary especially with the dining room open 24/7 now. I do sometimes think I'm going to get hit up by a panhandler or what I suspect is the occasional prostitute. No thanks, not the kind of side dish I want with my burger and fries thank you very much.

This particular Burger King is hit and miss. I used to frequent them a lot before I'd go to work on my night job. Sometimes it's perfect and sometimes they make your sandwich with white bread because somebody ran out of buns. It's a fast food restaurant so there's only so much they can do about the menu but service and quality are always under management's control and it's hit an miss. Right now it's ok but next month who knows. I've never gotten sick from one of their meals so that's something at least. Sometimes the food is a bit out of temperature if they get busy and I've gotten flat soda before. I've been overcharged before and had to wait 15 minutes in the drive through line because somebody ordered an ice cream cone. Staff turnover is pretty bad now so if service is suffering that's likely the reason. You do have to speak slowly in the drive through or they will screw up your order. I wish there was something between dislike and okay.

Absolutely the best burger I've ever had anywhere period. Atmosphere is incredible and prices surprisingly reasonable. Service is so attentive that I felt like I should have dressed a bit better for the occasion. I don't know of any better restaurant that's as good a value for the money on this side of the valley period.
