Hardee’s 3217 E Clear Lake Ave, Springfield Fast Food • $$

“Hardee's, a fast-food restaurant, offers a mixed dining experience. While some customers praise the excellent food, such as the Frisco burger, and friendly service, others find the restaurant quite expensive for the quality. The restaurant's cleanliness and hard-working employees are highlighted, with one reviewer noting that even when the restaurant was empty, the staff were diligently cleaning the kitchen. However, another customer had an unusual experience with an order mix-up, where the employee handed the wrong food to a customer, only to retrieve it and give it to the correct customer. Overall, Hardee's provides a varied experience, with both positive and negative reviews from customers.”
