I was nicely surprised today when my mom and I were out shopping and we stopped in for lunch at the 99 Restaurant. I had heard that they had a gluten-free menu, but hadn't been in to try it until today.
While it's not an extensive menu, the gluten-free menu has enough items on it to satisfy. There are salads, hamburgers, complete with gluten-free buns, dinners, such as prime rib (Sunday after 4pm), broiled sirloin tips, NY strip sirloin, top sirloin steak and salmon. There is a choice of sides which include garlic mashed potatoes, baked potato and loaded baked potato (after 4pm), seasonal vegetables and french fries. I asked if the french fries are fried in a dedicated fryer and was told that they are!
I ordered the Mushroom and Cheese Steakburger with french fries. The gluten-free bun was, I believe, a rice flour and tapioca bun. I know I have had these buns before, it tasted a lot like Gillian's Foods Plain Gluten-Free Hamburger Bun, I'm not totally sure and I didn't ask. The burger was a lot bigger than the bun, which was fine with me. The fries were very tasty! The only complaint I really had was that the burger was a little underdone for my taste. I ordered it medium-well and would probably order it well done next time. I apologize that I didn't get a picture to share, but I didn't really plan on going out to lunch, so I didn't bring my camera.
Another restaurant to add to my gluten-free list! If you have tried 99's gluten-free menu, I'd love to hear your comments! If you haven't, it's time to check it out! :)
Have a great gluten-free day!
