I have been using RestroPress for over a year now and I have it installed on 3 websites for 3 different clients. There were some issues with my theme and the support team quickly and promptly jumed in and helped fix the issue. On many occasions they have recommended trying new things to make the website work better and function properly. I always have and always will use RestroPress for all my Restaurant clients.
