they might be number 13 on that list but they are at the bottom of my list right below cheap foriegn owned gs stations at midnight for the cheapskate way they have set up the soda fountains. when i pay almost 5 dollars for a sode i expect it to taste perfect not so badly brixed you cant even guess what flavor it really is instead of some lightly flavored carbonated water. if they ever want to know how to do it right get ahold of me ill teach them.
