Item: The Burger
Price: $10, plus $1/each for smoked Gouda and bacon

Having a gluten-free option at a restaurant is fabulous, but being able to choose from more than 13 options is almost unheard of, unless you find yourself inside One Trick Pony.

Not only can you order any pizza on the menu with a gluten-free crust, you can also enjoy a multitude of appetizers, since almost all of them are gluten free, or choose from more than five gluten-free salads.

For my entrée, I chose The Burger, a U.S.D.A. prime patty with leaf lettuce, tomato and red onion. To amp it up, I added smoked Gouda and bacon. Other choices include white cheddar, bleu cheese, American cheese or Swiss. It can be ordered with a gluten-free bun, which I found to be incredibly tasty. What surprised me most was the way it held together, unlike most gluten-free bread that crumbles.
