    The chicken sandwich and burger were great. However, the regular fries were bland and cold. The food is very messy and CGK has terrible, school-restroom-type paper napkins. Good food but there are other restaurants with with better food, service, and ambience nearby.

    Hostess did not acknowledge my date and I for over 5 minutes. Then once we were sat the server came up to us and asked if we had ordered yet and we were never even brought water. The server never checked in on us once we got our food and we had to ask another server to put in a milkshake for us. Instead of the milkshake we got a check! The food was not worth it and we had even worse service. To top it off a large group near us was vaping in the restaurant and not one staff member told them to stop.

    Burgers and shakes were delicious! But I got my shake first then half hour later I got my fries and another half hour for my burger. I suggest to bring everything together because at the time I got my burger I was already stuffed. But other than that everything else was good. Can’t wait to try their brunch!

    The Buffalo chicken tater tots were delicious and definitely the star of the meal. The rest of the food was overall good but the service was lacking. My husband’s food (chicken burger brunch sandwich) arrived 20mins before my entree (French toast) and it took us reminding the waiter multiple times and about 30mins before we got our iced coffee. Mind you we were the only people in there when we placed our order. Overall it was just ok.

    CGK does chicken, burgers, and all the sides you imagine with those dishes right, at the value price point. This place was exactly what I was looking for after being bamboozled by glitzy burger bars charging 18+ dollars for a burger ala carte.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!! a 20% “service charge” was added to my check which assumed was going to some sort of fund to help with the rising expenses restaurants are facing right now but when I asked my server about it she replied “that’s 20% gratuity, didn’t they tell you that when they sat you down?” um, NO! They most certainly did not and the fact that it’s called a service charge and not gratuity is horrible deceiving!!!!! I’ve tried to call every location and the phone sends me to voicemail and the voicemail is full at every location. I’ve tried calling corporate offices and same thing, Mailbox is full. I sent an email to which I’ve received no reply. I had no intention of making this public but since there is no other means of speaking to someone, you’ve left left me no choice.

    The waiter forgot to put my friends order in and they did not pass by so we had to wait 15 minutes before we could even ask about her food. Then we had to wait 15 more minutes for her food. Mind you 3 of us already had our food. Additionally, they didn’t pay much attention to us nor offer to comp discount at least her food. It was great tasting but ridiculous that she had to wait about 30 minutes even though we recieved our food.

    It was alright. They brought out everyone’s food but mine was forgotten. They never checked back up on us so we had to flag someone down. When they sent someone to go check they said “2 more minutes” which we knew they meant they forgot since it had already been a good 15 minutes. They had a DJ that was super load we couldn’t even tell our waiter what we wanted to eat just pointed at our menu. We couldn’t carry a conversation. It was mediocre food, wouldn’t go to Boston just to try it again or go out of my way to get it again. Just my opinion!

    We came because we’ve seen so many food bloggers post about how great it is. Sadly we did not have a good experience as we expected to. We ordered 6 tenders and bacon cheese fries as an appetizer. We only got 3 tenders instead of 6 and they had to go back and get the rest after the fact. We ordered the spicy tenders and we like spicy but these were unbearable. We were almost choking on all obscene amount of dry spices. We waited 25 minutes and I finally asked the server if our fries were coming and he said he forgot. Then 15 mins later the fries came, they were very good! We waited 30 minutes for our 3 burgers, the burgers were really good. We also were 1 out of 4 tables there so it was confusing why we waited so long for everything. The milkshakes are very small for $15. All in all we were very disappointed to spend $150 on a bad experience. The hype is 100% on Instagram

    Although this place was in a great location, their burgers were mediocre in my opinion. I ordered a burger and the saltiness of the whole burger overpowered any and all other flavors. As for the service, I had to get up twice to look for my server (once to order a milkshake and once to order the bill) because she was no where to be found. I waited over 15 minutes each time for her to come over but she didn't. After I paid and left the restaurant, I realized I was charged a 20% house fee. There was no signs on the store or on the menu explaining what this fee is and why I'm getting charged a 20% house fee - in addition to tipping them. I was willing to forget about the mediocre food and slow service but I felt ripped off after coming back and seeing that I was charged for something with no heads up.
