It was a choice of home cooking or the 30 min drive to The Copper Door in Hayesville with Julia, our Taxi for the night. Amie was most knowledgeable and friendly and the food and drinks were delivered just as described. Well worth the effort.

I don't know - and they are not marked or indicated on the menu. I would imagine that a call to the restaurant would uncover this info.
