You can view the full menu here! I’m someone who does eat meat and is not a fan of fake meat or cheese options. I love that this restaurant offers both. On numerous occasions, I’ve been drug to a vegan place in Charlotte that just doesn’t have anything I enjoy on the menu. So I enjoy when places keep both demographics happy.
