After reading the reviews on here, we decided to stop by and give it a try! Food is awesome!! However the staff was not very friendly, that is the only drawback. Luckily, our food was great. We will be back!

Sorry, I don't remember seeing gluten free options. Then again, I wasn't looking either. If you call them, they might be able to confirm.
