    Pros

    The half price discount was nice. The food was always good but a little pricey. The coworkers were amazing.

    Cons

    At the beginning of the shift was a workload of dishes and just having a lot more dishes coming in would put you behind. The hours were terrible and being the only worker at night when it would get busy would suck. Staying after shift until the morning because of all the work was exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Always have two people working it gets too much too handle at some points, its minimum wage you can afford another worker.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, family like atmosphere, most customers were a delight to work with, that pretty much sums everything up.

    Cons

    Very poor pay, and most of the upper management were terrible at their jobs and had lower level employees do their jobs for them.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do your jobs instead of standing around and you might have less of a turn over with your employees.

    Pros

    Regulars are nice, money can be made if they don't put too many servers on, which they always do.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. Extreme favoritism towards Hispanics. Night shift is dangerous, swing shift is full of teenagers, and morning shift manager is a not nice at all. This whole franchise to be honest is crooked.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better more positive attitude. Treat employees fairly.
