Champps Sports Bar has G-F Menu,

We'd heard Champps sports bar had a gluten-free menu, so we finally had a chance to try it last weekend while at Fair Oaks Mall doing some Christmas shopping. It was a pleasant surprise. We hadn't been to a Chammps in a long time, and honestly, as much as we've always had a really good experience there, it was news about the gluten-free menu that got us to go back after all this time. We were glad, because we were reminded of the extensive menu where just about everything sounds good. The waitress had to come back about three times before I was ready to order...I was having such a hard time deciding among all the great-sounding items (this was on the regular menu). It's a nice mix of some traditional "sports-bar" fare like potato skins, wings, and burgers but with A LOT of other great offerings (awesome list of salads, sandwiches, and a wide variety of tasty-sounding entrees, many of which appeared healthy, too). In terms of the gluten- free menu, it offered a nice range of salads (and salad dressings), burgers, and other entrees (ribs, fish, steaks, etc.) Our gluten-free son opted for the kids' burger (served gluten- free without a bun, of course). I do constantly wonder why more restaurants who clearly make the effort to offer a gluten- free menu can't simply buy some gluten-free hamburger rolls so their gluten-free patrons can have a REAL burger they can hold in their hands like everyone else!'s easy to keep a package or two of gluten-free buns in the freezer and them have ready for their gluten-free diners. But I digress....The kids menu (while mostly NOT gluten-free) offered a better-than- average range of items, if you are dining with any kids that CAN eat gluten. They also offer a CHOICE of healthier side items, other than just fries (they also offer mashed potatoes, veggies, and mandarin oranges -- all of which are gluten- free...the fries are NOT). The kids' meals also come with a drink and a gluten-free ice cream sundae for dessert -- all for $4.99. You can't even get all that food at McDonald's for that price, I don't think! Overall, it's a great value, has good food (g-f and not), and is a fun atmosphere as long as you don't mind sports on every big screen around the room! Request their gluten- free menu when you check in with the hostess. I don't see it on their website.
