The Simpler Servings allergen free station at Southside offers a daily hot entrée, sides, and made-to-order stir fry for customers with food allergies and other dietary intolerances. All foods at Simple Servings are free of milk, eggs, wheat, soy, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, and gluten.

Adjacent to Simple Servings entrees is the “My Zone” area, which caters specifically to customers with gluten intolerance. Gluten free options – including pastries and fresh made waffles – are available at My Zone.
Although we take precautions to reduce the risk of cross-contact, all food is prepared in a facility which uses food allergens, and the possibility of cross-contact does exist.
