    Pretty sure I got food poisoning from this location. I had their pretzel bites and spicy cheese sauce around 5 or so today and that was all I had to eat today. Just about an hour ago (11:30pm) I had sudden cramping in my stomach region. I... See More thought it was just period cramps cause they felt very similar. Then the urge to use the bathroom hit me like a truck. So within the past hour i’ve been having to run to the bathroom, cause of green diarrhea. All while enduring excruciating cramps. Super fun. I’ve never experienced anything like this before. I figured it very well could be the food I had because some of the pretzel bites did seem undercooked. Really sucks cause I loved this place but I’m not risking this again. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Something else, Cramps See Less
