First time and I was impressed by the service. The men were so approachable and oriented me to the right section. I came for an oil change and they inspected everything else because my check engine light was on. The guy that assisted me, Daniel on Saturday morning was very attentive, friendly, and most importantly KNOWLEDGEABLE- You need workers like this. He went above and beyond to help me, even encouraged me what kind of oil to add to my car and other items to care for my car. Definitely retuning.

As always, the staff was very friendly and found a way to make sitting in line for over 30 minutes fun. To be clear, they were very busy so the wait was appropriate.

Staff was very friendly! And very confident.... A really great crew at the end of the day! The total time that I spent from start to finish was about one hour! I did come to get my oil changed on the Veterans Day special. So I understand the lines are typically longer on that particular special because it's a 50% off for military veterans.

There was one car ahead of me in line and took one hour before it was my turn. I ended up not getting an oil change and just had to drive through because it took too long

Very helpful and friendly staff, indicated potential issues to have a machanic check out and were genuinely apologetic about not being able to switch the Groupon from synthetic to full synthetic.
