All the tables are spaced well more than six feet apart. If you're eating together, you should be eating as a family unit. Masks are still required even in the garage where there's a nice breeze coming through, we still want people to be wearing masks unless they're eating. We sanitize the tables around the clock while we're open. So all those health guidelines are being followed.

It's for those people that enjoy coming here and still want to keep some semblance of their normal life going."
