Self-serve areas do have precautions in place, such as assuring that each item has a separate utensil, and wiping up spills, using separate cleaning equipment for each station.  Since self-serve areas are prone to cross-contact from other customers, please ask us to assist you with a serving from our back-up in the kitchen.  For the salad bar, our cold wells contain only single-ingredient vegetables, with composed salads, eggs, cheeses and croutons set apart.  We also post a sign “If you have a food allergy, please request your salad be prepared for you.  Talk to our manager.”
