I had the wonderful opportunity to try Shane's Rib Shack the other night. I had known that Shane's had a gluten-free menu, but had never dined there before.

shanes_logoThere are a great number of choices for those who have to follow a gluten-free diet, including pork, ribs and chicken. The BBQ sauce is gluten-free. Shane's also has a number of sides that are gluten-free, including cole slaw, baked beans, corn, and salad. For healthier options, there are salads on the menu with brisket, grilled chicken or pork.

5guysburgersFive Guys has earned quite a following up the East Coast since 1986, when the first one opened in Virgina. Most Celiacs (or anyone keeping away from gluten) wouldn’t think of eating at Five Guys Burgers and Fries, having been burned by fries cooked in non-dedicated oil and having to pick pieces of bun off their burgers. Five Guys is more than happy to make a hamburger or cheeseburger with no bun, and since they’re made on the spot, when you order, you can have it any way you want it. Five Guys’ toppings, which are all FREE, include mayo, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, grilled onions, pickles, onions, relish, grilled mushrooms, jalapeno peppers, green peppers, hot sauce, A1 sauce and barbeque sauce. And because they’re not frying onion rings or anything else breaded, the French fries are free of gluten and full of flavor. In fact, at my last visit to the Five Guys in Devon, Bob, who took my order, made sure to tell the people who were making the food to keep my burger FAR AWAY from the buns. Thanks, Bob! (more…)
