Do you have a gluten free menu? Gluten free options? If so, are you gluten free items cooked separately from the regular gluten items so there would be no cross contamination? We will be visiting Greenville for 2-3 weeks in early June and I can only eat gluten free due to celiac disease. Would appreciate any input. Thank you so much.
