We frequent this place and always leave satisfied and happy. The best is the BLT with chicken breast and avocado. They bake everything on site. First rate in every way for a great lunch at very fair prices. True home touch quality.

I would hate to give an incorrect answer so I would suggest simply asking the restaurant. I think they do have alternative choices.
