Food was great. Thanks for delivering even though you had truck issues. A little more communication about delays/pickup/etc would have been helpful.

I got medium, hot tenders and fries. They were both excellent. I'm sure the truck sales were down because there were no pictures of the food when you ordered.

Yes. My fries were cold. I ordered a head and was there before pick up time. They should have been hot.
