The best for the time I needed to work there.
Busser, Food Server, Cashier (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CA 92130August 15, 2018
It was just a chill job for someone who was about to finish high school at the time. The staff were always helpful with the employees. Everyone was getting help by whoever had nothing to do. Friendly. Easy for me to fit in even being a little shy at first.
Pros
Employees super communicative. Never any enemies.
Cons
None that are reasonable to list.

Cashier/Busser (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 9, 2018
Great place to work to earn cash, however it isn't a place where you can really grow. Management was okay but not the greatest, in making sure each employee is on the right track.

Fun but no hours
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Oxnard, CAJune 28, 2018
it’s a great place to work! you get close to your coworkers quickly but you rarely get to see them because you’re scheduled only 3-4 days a week. it’s stressful at times with all the rushed throughout the day. tips depend on how busy you are throughout the shift.

Productive and fun workplace.
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXMay 29, 2018
A typical day at work would consist of keeping the restaurant clean and running food to guest. I learned how to work as a team with my other coworkers during peak hours. Management is great they work well with everyone's hours. The hardest part of the job would be keeping everything together when it gets extremely busy. The most enjoyable part is seeing the guest enjoy the food and the relationships you build with other coworkers.

Met a lot of new people and made great friendships and work habits.
Server/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CAMay 8, 2018
On a typical day at work, I come in with a positive attitude and make the best of my time there. I learn a lot of communication skills as well how to speak to guests. In my short time there,I've learned by my manager how to close and open in a manager perspective. The workplace is in a great location, inside a mall and even though not every day will go as planned, the best part of it is meeting new faces.
Pros
Meet a lot of new people.
Cons
no benefits, low pay

Manager (Former Employee) –  Dana Point, CAApril 13, 2018
They are a fun place to work at for a starting job or in between job. They try to take care of you and opportunity for growth but not for a long term career.

Cashier and Server (Current Employee) –  Oxnard, CAFebruary 7, 2018
Always walking into work positive with a can-do attitude. Everyone always had a smile on their face and loved to help guests with what dish to try and always making sure they are being tended to in a clean and welcoming environment. there were no hard parts about this job, everything and everyone was always under control! The most enjoyable part about this job was the coworkers and the management, everyone was friends and always helped each other out and very understanding.
Pros
food for lunch, great atmosphere.
Cons
short breaks.

Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) –  Huntington Beach, CAJanuary 25, 2018
It is easy to become passionate about the product being sold. However, the company has difficulties developing managers. They are positive people but lack the ability to assist when needing help in certain areas.

Shift Leader (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TXNovember 6, 2017
Everything is really easy to do. Everyone has a role and when the role is done properly everything is great, but when not done properly things will fall apart and crumble. Hardest part of the job is closing on time and making sure the guest are happy. The most enjoyable would have to being able to be cool around coworkers and the guest are usually friendly.

Be Careful
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) –  Aliso Viejo, CAOctober 13, 2017
Management is poor, all restaurants are under staff which leads to poor training, no opportunity for promotion from within with fair pay, cashiers will at times earn more than the managers with customer tips!
Pros
Recipes are great tasting
Cons
organization and management

TEAM MEMBER - FOH (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 13, 2017
While most of the team was great, most members of management are rude and very cut-throat. It is a fast growing chain that is a very corporate place to work. Everything you do must be completely by the book. Expect to feel like a robot.
Pros
70% off a meal the day of your shift
Cons
Short breaks, poor management, lots of working hazards
