    negative review  stopped in for a breakfast sandwich. after noticing how charming the place was I noticed nothing had a price on it including the menu board. i got in line at 9:10am and it took a long time to get my order in. that was ok, but then I noticed two orders came up but were not set out for almost 5 minutes thinking it might be my order a asked to person to see if it was. by this time I have been waiting for a bacon egg and and cheese biscuit. for 25 minutes. when I asked about it I was told it would be another 15 to 20 minutes. for a simple saussage, egg and cheese biscuit. I had to check out at 10am so I actually had to leave, drive back to the park to check out then drive back and pick up my cold sandwich. I had even bought a sticker before I new how bad your service was. if it's going to take that long you should tell people and anytime a place hides prices it's a red flag. Being in a highly marginalized group I want to know for sure I'm paying the same price as everyone else.
