Safety First.

The well being of our staff and guests are our #1 priority. 

In addition to following the CDC, federal, state and local government guidelines, we have instituted extra measures to ensure that we provide the highest level of safety possible. 

Listed here are just a few of the precautions we are currently taking:

  • All employees, guests, vendors, delivery personnel, (or any other visitors) are required to wear a face mask at all times when inside the building. (Face mask must meet CDC guidelines and be fully covering the nose and mouth).
  • Only one guest/group are permitted inside at any given time. 
  • When queuing outside the restaurant, guests are expected to maintain a 6 feet distance from one another. 
  • We are accepting online or over the phone orders only and guests are strongly encouraged to use no-contact payment (either through our online ordering platform or via credit card over the phone).
  • Guest access to the building is limited to the entryway and physical barriers have been set in place to separate staff and guests. 
  • There are no guest bathrooms at this time. 
  • Our restaurant is well stocked with hand sanitizer for guest and staff use.
  • Staff are required to wear gloves when handling any ready-to-eat foods (including packaged items such as bags of chips) and when preparing beverages, packing orders or handling any other items that will not be sanitized before being sold to guests. 
  • We have a zero physical contact policy for all staff members.
  • All surfaces and high touch points inside the restaurant are sanitized at the beginning and end of every day and every hour during service.
  • Employees are required to alert their manager if they are experiencing any symptoms of the Covid-19 virus and will be required to stay home from work. Any employee displaying symptoms will be sent home immediately. 
  • Immediately upon notice of suspected or confirmed case/ exposure by any of our staff members, we will commence with “Covid-19 Response Checklist” (laid out in the Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures addendum to the employee handbook.)
