The food w as incredibly cheap and a lot of it. We all had plenty of food and spent less than ten dollars. If you are on a budget it is worth a try. It's half the cost of the competitors and just as good.

Checkers is a great place to go for a burger and fries. They are a bit slow but it is worth the wait.
