I’ve been meaning to check out this place ever since it opened but it’s a bit far from my house so we haven’t made it there yet. So, when my husband’s basketball team had a game right near there, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check the place out. I even had to look at www.findmeglutenfree.com to check the address and make sure we were going to the right place!

We arrived there around 9:30pm on a Friday evening. Surprisingly, they were still busy but we were able to get a table with no problem.

At our table, I reviewed the menu to find I had to ask for the special gluten free menu. The waiter brought it right over to us.

The items that were available gluten free were highlighted in orange on the menu.

After careful consideration, I decided to go with the fish and chips. Our waiter explained the cod is seasoned and broiled instead of breaded and fried.

Our food arrived shortly after ordering, which was perfect because we were both starving after a long night.

My fish came with roasted red skin potatoes but I decided to try to asiago cheese scalloped potatoes.

The dinner ended up being delicious. I’m a big fan of cod and eat it frequently when I am getting ready for a fitness competition. We also use it a lot at our house with tacos and gluten free breadcrumbs to make a variety of dishes.

The cod was cooked perfectly and there was just enough cheese in the potatoes to taste great and not be too greasy or over powering.

My husband said he always knows when I really like something at a restaurant because I won’t offer him a taste in order to save every bite for myself.

He had a bison burger with cheese, bacon and avocado, which he really enjoyed as well.

I’d highly recommend Local Roots as a great gluten free option!
