Double Wide Grill
At first glance, I wasn't sure about anything on the menu being gluten free. Sometimes BBQ sauces are not gluten free ans there was a lot of BBQ on the menu. I'm not a big rib fan either and I wasn't in the mood for a salad. Salads are usually a safe choice if you make sure there's no croutons, french fries, or dressing on them. And I just wasn't feeling a bowl of lettuce.
I mentioned to the enthusiastic server that I needed to be gluten free & he promptly told me about the gluten free bread & menu. He fetched it from the server station and handed it to me.
It was a bit confusing. I had to keep looking back and forth between the regular menu and the gluten free menu to see what came on certain sandwiches and entrees, but I decided on a grilled chicken sandwich and an appetizer of mussels with no toast.
The mussels were in a tomato lemon butter and were plentiful, but there were 3 or 4 left over mussels that didn't open. I was once told not to eat the ones that don't open, so I didn't.
My sandwich arrived open faced. And it was a good thing, too. I looked at the full green leafy lettuce and saw a dead bug. I found a server & sent it back for new lettuce. Yes it was the same sandwich with different lettuce, but that's what I expected. Nothing was wrong with the chichen or bread.
The chicken was tender, smokey, and spicy. I feel like it was a fake smoke additive, but I'm not entirely sure. The spice was just a hint and not over-barring. The bread was pretty good for gluten free bread.
