We placed a carry out order over the phone and told the person taking our order that my boyfriend has celiac and his food needs to be gluten free. Unfortunately, he was very bloated and felt sick and in pain after eating the purportedly gluten free spud he ordered. Also, if you have to travel more than 10 minutes with the carry out food, don't go here, as it doesnt keep very well. The food is very tasty here when fresh though.

They yell out Allergy and the type of allergy and yell out to change gloves. Eaten here over 10 times with no issues. I have celiac disease.

Newer location with indoor and outdoor (both covered & uncovered) seating. Offer GF bread. The BLTA is a good choice. Both nachos are legal as long as you omit chili. Top with grilled chicken or the ham are both good substitutes. Most of the potatoes are legal, except for the one with beefsteak.
