Additional Comments - This will make you stand out in the competition! Unique aspects? Student discounts? Parking tips?: 

This is a new store just opened and it was quite hard to find the exact location of the store in the Yards shopping centre which is being developed on the waterfront in the old Navy yards near the Ball park and by the waterworks but I had a lot of walking around to find it. The Yards development agency ought to consider a few maps around the site.

The store was lovely and cool on this hot day but for those better acclimatised to the heat there was plenty of outside seating as well. It was all fresh befitting a new store and lovely and clean with good graffiti art work on the walls. The store seems to have become popular with the students at the Gallaudet university.

My chicken turned up burnt which seems to be a Washington thing!!!! but in mitigation there were plenty of well cooked chips, the coleslaw was cold plentiful and fresh. The staff here don't seem keen on checking on you either.

The toilet was very large for a single toilet and could have housed a whole row of cubicles in the same space, a thought for when it is busy and you have a half hour wait to use the toilet. It was very well decorated and clean thoughout.

This store shows great promise for when they learnt to use the grill and check on customers.
