Food was okay. My black and blue burger needed more cheese. Pickles were great but the service was TERRIBLE. Just awful. No. For that reason, I won't be back. too many other good food places to patron with good device as well.

The Penguin was understaffed when I redeemed my Groupon last week. I waited over an hour and a half for my Take Out Order and they also ran out of buns for the burgers so they had to use Texas Toast. The owner was really nice though and the wings were good.
