  2. If Simmons and Stanley are co-owners..they need to go see what a hot mess they have running at the Tustin location. If it wasn’t for the awesome waiter, Ryan…the food was nothing short to be desired. It took 20 minutes to get a beer, 3 managers were behind the bar watching and talking among themselves while the female bartender was busting her a**. Two women walked out after waiting a half an hour for their burger (we heard the whole conversation).

    Management has no idea what they are doing at the Tustin location and it blatantly shows.
