I have loved this place since it opened. If you know what a poblano pepper is, and would rather have this over bell peppers in a dish then you will be in heaven. ( I hate green bell peppers). Great vegetarian, comfort food, breakfast, beers........More

I am not sure but I would guess they do. Alot of the dishes are mostly meats and vegetables. You would have to check their menu. They also have alot of specials and they could probably make you something that was.
