Traveling over the Holidays this year? If so, it's a great excuse to try a new restaurant outside your area. That's what our family did today. We were driving through Pennsylvania, and when it came time for lunch, I pulled out my iPhone and Searched Reviews of area restaurants on GlutenFreeTravelSite.com. Then I checked the Gluten Free Restaurant Menus page to view the chain restaurants in the area with gluten-free menus. I was reminded of the Charlie Brown's Steakhouse chain, which we'd never tried. There happened to be one just minutes from where we we'd be passing through at lunchtime. Let's just say it was nice to know we would be taking the kids to someplace other than the old standby...McD's!
Charlie Brown's offered a lunch menu with burgers, sandwiches, salads, and other heartier entrees. I ordered tilapia from the gluten-free menu, and our boys split the filet mignon. The mashed potatoes were gluten-free, although the fries were not. There's a nice range of gluten-free options...ribs, fish, chicken, and lots of steaks (what they're known for). So don't forget to utilize all the resources on GlutenFreeTravelSite this Holiday season...whether you're traveling or just looking for something new in your area. We just added 6 new restaurant chains to our Gluten Free Restaurant Menus page: Old Spaghetti Factory, Z'Tejas, Ruby Tuesday, Ted's Montana Grill, Stonewood Grill and Tavern, and of course the old standby and gold-standard of gluten-free menus: Outback Steakhouse.
If you dine at these or any other restaurants this Holiday season -- or if you're lucky enough to be traveling to a resort or on a cruise, please don't forget to share your experience by submitting a review to GlutenFreeTravelSite. Happy Holidays!
