We stopped at a candy shop and had pecans. I can’t say that the kitchens at the restaurants we stopped at we’re free of those listed nuts.

I don’t believe so, since there are set foods at each restaurant we stopped at. You do not order from the menu. Some of the items we had were cornbread, hush puppies, sliders, and fried green tomatoes. Hope this helps.
