    My favorite is the buffalo seitan. True confession, I'm a meat-eater, and I still love the wings and this restaurant too. Drink selections are great and the waiters are knowledgeable.

    Everything here tasted like it had been frozen - thawed - and left out to become stale before putting in a fryer. The only redeeming quality was the vegan milkshake. I'll stick to dessert from here.

    They show up under dog friendly patios on yelp. It's not. They want you to tie them on the trees 50 feet away, no tying on the outer patio railings (WTF?). I have a very bad taste in my mouth now.
