I should have known better than to be excited about going right to the register when I noticed all the people (ostensibly) waiting for food. Promptly ordered one BLT and one Beef on Weck.

Number of people behind the counter; twelve

Time from order placed to order received; 23:02.5

I'm happy to see that some things had changed for the better since last week. The noise level is way down, though still rather loud and they began to amend the pricing issues with their "a la carte" items such as the $0.50 oreos (!!!). But it is still painfully slow. I really find it hard to believe that there is any professional training there. The kitchen area is almost equal in size to the dining area, the customer to staff ratio is 3/1 and they're still taking twenty minutes to place an order.

SLOWLY improving. Hoping that they're further along by next week.

By the way, the BLT is very very good.
