Food good but service slow. Took 25 minutes to get our order and place only maybe 1/3 full at best. Then order came out wrong. Saw another woman send back her soup because it was cold. Good green fried tomatoes.

We have been going here for over 20 years. We love their onion rings and Chuckies Chicken Fried Chicken. Always the best....I have been there once for breakfast and the Migas were to die for.

I honestly don't know if they do or not have gluten free foods. Call them. However, I'd save your money and go to someplace nice in Pflugerville or Round Rock.
