What is the reason behind why children are free? Everyone should be free since you still have to pay for parking and pay for your food. doesn't make sense.

The high overhead and the out-of-the-way location make this a pretty iffy or no-go scenario for me, and for most of my friends here in Pleasanton.

I'm not sure I see the attraction. You pay for parking, pay for entry, and the prices are still high compared to a sitdown restaurant. And to top it off, you get to eat out of styrofoam containers using plastic utensils. You should not have to pay for the "priviledge" of eating from a truck that may or may not have to meet the same health standards as a brick and mortar restaurant.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
