This was a very busy restaurant. Noise level is a bit loud. We had brisket sandwiches. I had onion rings and my husband had fries. Considering how busy they were, the service was quick. Food was good. Loved the onion rights.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside. But once inside it is well worth your time. Wait staff is wonderful. Food is amazing. Atmosphere is pleasant and food is reasonably priced. Very enjoyable experience!

No but the menu is heavy on meat items and there are some salads on the menu. Nothing specifically gluten free though.
