  • Broccoli
  • French fries
  • Fresh sautéed zucchini and squash
  • Garden salad (with balsamic vinaigrette, French dressing, or Italian dressing)
  • Seasonal fruit
  • Seasoned fries
  • Sweet petite corn


  • Grits or oatmeal: Ask that they be made with water instead of milk.
  • Hash browns: Add bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and avocado to make them extra delicious!
  • Red-skinned potatoes
  • Regular English muffin: Be sure to avoid the gluten-free one, which has dairy ingredients in it, and use jam or jelly instead of butter.
  • Toast: Ask for potato, multigrain wheat, or seven-grain bread, and use jam or jelly instead of butter.

Build Your Own Burger (comes with lettuce, tomato, red onions, and pickles)

Choose the brioche or whole-wheat bun and the veggie patty (it’s vegan!). To make it a double, order an extra patty for $1.50. Skip the cheese and choose from these toppings: grilled onions, sliced jalapeños, fresh avocado, sautéed mushrooms, barbecue sauce, bourbon sauce, ketchup, and mustard.
