What are your hours?

We're open Wednesday-Sunday from 3pm-2am.

What time does your kitchen close?

The kitchen closes at 12 am every night.

It's 11:55 pm. Can I order food online to go?

Sorry, we stop accepting online orders at 11:30pm, but you're welcome to place orders in person at the restaurant until 11:50 pm! 

Speaking of which, how do I order food to go?

You can order food for take-out in person at the restaurant via our take-out window or online here!

Do you use any delivery apps?

We do not use any delivery apps. All online ordering is done here and we do not offer delivery.

Can I order take-out over the phone?

No, we don't accept phone-in orders, but you can order online here.

Can I make a reservation?

We do not accept reservations. Seating is first come, first serve!

How long is the wait for a table right now?

This is a bar, baby. See above.

Can my fourteen-year old come inside for dine-in?

We're a bar so you DO need to be 21+ for entry.

Do you have outdoor seating?

We have three tables outside that seat two people each.

Are you requiring proof of vaccination for entry?

Darn tootin'. We are requiring that all our dine-in guests be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination is required alongside a valid ID. If you are unvaccinated you are still welcome to order at our take-out window. 

Do I have to wear a mask?

Yes. The local mask mandate requires that you wear a mask indoors whenever you are not actively eating or drinking. We're not interested in a discussion about mask wearing kthxbye.

Are dogs allowed?

We're definitely dog people here, but this is a small space without much room to walk around. Dogs are only permitted at the outside tables. 

Now about the menu...can you do split flavors on the nuggets?

We don't offer split flavors on the nuggets but if you'd like a suggestion...if you want to try multiple flavors try ordering the Lil Snack! You get a few pieces of chicken and some fries in each order 

Is your chicken gluten free?

We use soy sauce in the marinade so unfortunately, no. The fried rice can be made gluten free.

Is anything vegan?

The rice pudding is! And it's delicious. The fried rice can be made vegan/vegetarian.
