Went there after they opened the store for about one month. Heard about this fast food chain since last year and all I heard was how good it is. So, ever since then I eager to try them when I have a chance. The chance was coming after all but I had to wait for a good whole month to get to proof all the hype I heard.
Actually, I went there when they already opened for one week, but the line was 2 full tents of people. Nah, I won’t wait for food for that long, even if it’s for free. That time, the waiting time was estimated up to 4 hours. No, thanks!
So I went there couple days ago, when I was parking my car I didn’t see any form of line, at least one tent that I passed was empty. I was full of hope and little that I knew, there was a line in another tent, I thought even though there would be a line, it won’t that long and they must learn through the whole month experiences to fasten the line. I walked to the tent with my daughter and there was almost half tent full of people. They gave me a Q card number and little information about quantity and amount of money I could spend (Max $50 and 2 bucket of chicken). Sweet, So I won’t going crazy inside to grab everything, haha kidding.
For half tent of people we had to wait for about 45 minutes, everybody look excited, old and young, men and women, adult and kids, every single one (except maybe for my daughter) patiently waiting their time, to exchange their money to a piece of chicken, spagetti or palabo.
So here my review :
Service ***** 5 stars (employees are friendly, full of smile, I feel welcome )
Place **** 4 stars (new and clean but not big enough, there is only 2 cashier machines)
Food ***** 5 stars (for the taste compare to other retail fast food and for their varians of food and drink, they have steamed RICE!)
Price **** 4 stars (reasonable but expect to spend more than you normally spend on fast food chain because of all food you want to try)
Overall, This place will earn my return. If I was happen in the area near meal time, I would pop in if the line is not so crazy long.
They are going to open another Jolibee in Mississauga (same building with the Seafood City/Hearthland) sometime July this year.
