Order at the counter and then there are food runners and bussers who will help you with what you need when you are seated...bring you drinks, silverware, condiments, etc.

I'm sure Ms. Gilbert will be more than helpful in satisfying your dietary needs. She was very reassuring when we inquired about nut allergies. And, I still say they have the BEST burgers. Hope this helps!
