I,ve eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed with the food. It is very crowded during the lunch hour so get there early. the dining area is larger towards the back of the restaurant. A lot of good ole home cooking.

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