“Our waitress, Alexis Mayuex, did a phenomenal job the entire time we were at the table. She didn’t leave our drinks empty, constantly refilled our bread, and made our experience one to never forget!! I hope the that next few customer get the pleasure of having her as a waitress. I will most definitely request her next time I come in! I will also always recommend the Turkey Creek location because of their amazing service!”
