They have one of the best selections of desert treats in the area. I had the cookie dough blast and enjoyed it to the last drop. They pay attention to detail and get the order right.

I really expected something a bit more special. It was not even an above average hamburger. Hint don't let someone that is not computer savvy try to order.. now that was a disaster! I guess I do like ordering from a person.

Compared to some of the other FF places in Carson, this one is below-par. Their hot dogs are small and difficult to manage while driving. In-N-Out is head and shoulders above.

Great cheeseburgers, onion rings, and fries. Eat in car or at one of the four shaded picnic tables. The only problem is that the order board is not visible from the sign saying place your order at the order board. [It's on the back of the advertising board.] Also, the charge card reader on the order boards don't work.

I like this place because they really have good food, it is fairly fast, fun and the area is so clean that you can tell they care about their business.

Thank Michael J
