Had the pleasure of visiting this place with a wonderful group of friends. OMG - the food was wonderful!! I am not a sausage eater but I would recommend the sausage very highly! Most definitely this is a hidden treasure in Luling, Texas!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Does anyone know if someone who has to be gluten free, medically, can safely eat here? Do they use any seasonings or ingredients in the sauce that could have gluten? Or could someone, for example, touch the bread then use the same gloves to serve the meat? Thanks in advance.
