The text fields do not have the correct autofill attributes (eg CCV on the credit card info form is a password input) PLUS there is at least one button whose background color is grey. GREY! it's like they're trying to make you think it's disabled. Amateur UI design, NOT respectful of the user's time. Also, they prompt for location access every time you look at their home page. Why not add in a modal every 10 seconds while you're at it Buona.

The app just doesn't work most of the time. It freezes on the first screen almost everytime I open the app. And on the rare occasions when it does work, it's full of technical issues. I once had to close, reopen and refill my order three times because it kept freezing when I was trying to check out. Edit: The past few times I've used the app, it's definitely been working on a more consistent basis. It still freezes up every now and then, but, when it works, the user experience is great.

App makes it impossible to order the Wednesday burger special easily for some reason. When I select it and tap "Everything" for toppings, it ignores that and forces me to select "Customize" and needlessly rebuild the entire burger from scratch. This doesn't happen if you just order the regular burger on its own. For some reason on the special, it uses radio buttons for the topping options while on the regular one, it uses checkboxes. Maybe that causes the problem?
