Haddads is loved by the community and they are generous people. The shop offers many types of food and teh community pushes to support them. The workers are usually cordial. La zarape is also great and cordial to customers and offer quality mexican food.
I am not too aware of the employment status. I do know that for students, there is an abundance of part time job opportunities at the local shops and food chains.
