Ordered the oz tail soup and the hot wings, and both were very delicious. I would definitely come back and order other items off their menu. I'm sure that all other dishes are fantastic. Come and try this place, you won't be sorry.

Absolutely! The portions are large. We ordered 3 dishes. Our group of 4 could not finish cleaning the plates.
Do they have Gluten Free options? If not can they accommodate? For example just a steak with salt and pepper not sauce?

I agree with most people here, they are very friendly and I'm sure would be happy to accommodate a plain steak or pork chops.
