Do you accept BEVO BUCKS?
Yup, we gladly accept Bevo Bucks. No Dine-In Dollars.

I'm at the Union Building, but can't find you.
We are located one floor below the food court, on the north side of the building (below the Texas Union theater) If outside of the building, look for the entrance on 24th and Guadalupe. Go in through that door and then take the nearby elevator to the first floor (you'll be on the second floor when you enter) — We look forward to seeing you!
