We went there as a recommendation of locals. The food was good and we were able to take our time and enjoy our meals. The gratuity was automatically added to the bill so that you are aware. The food was filling and tasted homemade.

I believe the owners are quite compassionate and will try to accommodate...The restaurant is not too large, the size of your service dog might be a problem...I would call first and ask for Gus, the owner...Good luck...
