Food is good. That's why people go here. We waited 1.5 hours for a table on a Friday. Get there before 4 pm if you want a table. There are many other places just as good without the wait.

We have many things on the Gluten free menu. We have a deep fryer just for fried items and have researched all the sub items that are NOT gluten free. So just about the entire menus is available to you. Thanks Mark
