The meal was wonderful (pork enchilada)! The atmosphere was rather funky and cool and all three of us like the experience

We eat here about once a week. They have a unique menu offering delicious meals. But if you really want the best, order anything on their nightly specials list! If you like black beans and rice, they have the best in town (my standard side...More

I am not sure but I would guess they do. Alot of the dishes are mostly meats and vegetables. You would have to check their menu. They also have alot of specials and they could probably make you something that was.
