  • Brandon S.when the front desk lady tells you it's going to be 20 mins it's more like 1 hr 20 min best time to go there is rather really early or 2:30 ish

    22222 by Brandon S.


  • Tery L.get there outside of the weekend rush (before 10am or after 1pm) so that you're not waiting in the usual 45-80min line ... they don't take reservations and service can be slow (good service, though)
