This place is small but was able to accommodate 5 adults and 2 kids. They have a ton of gluten free options and a friendly staff and food pricing. Food was excellent.

Small place so plan on waiting if going at dinner. Staff was awesome and super friendly. Food was amazing. Ribs had a bit of a kick to the rub/sauce they use. Would go back again!
