    Absolutely awesome! I haven't had chicken or steak strips in years. They have a dedicated gf fryer and can make most things gf. Call ahead so they can turn on the free fryer ahead of time.

    A great place, down home atmosphere. Good comfort food. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Separate fryer for gluten free, call ahead about 20 min so they have time to get it hot for you.

    Very pleased here! The owner spoke with my friend and I BEFORE we ordered as well as after our food was served. Being a celiac himself he takes cross-contamination very seriously. Here you will get more that grilled meats or salad. You will be able to eat foods that you couldn't eat at any other restaurant. Fried green tomatoes.... Chicken fried steak, etc.

    Amazing! We ordered the chicken fried steak and the owner came out to ask if we had any other allergies. We told them my husband didn't tolerate dairy well either and they made the gravy with coconut milk! Portions were huge! And pricing was VERY reasonable!! We did call and let them know we were on the way- they said they would start the separate fryer so that it would be ready for our GF meals.

    Dave (the owner) is a celiac and knows the frustration of eating out safely. He has trained his staff in the importance of no cross contamination, the preparation and serving of gluten free glory. The chicken fried steak and gravy is amazing. If you want it fried, the folks at ponder can do it for ya. Call ahead for reservations and just let them know you need a gluten free entree. They also have gluten free desserts.
