One of the last places I would ever have expected to find any edible gluten-free food was a brewery restaurant. Although there are gluten-free beers now days, when I think brewery I think barley—AKA: gluten. When I think brew pub I think burgers and fried onion rings—big wheat buns and breaded battered fried food. Still, when my neighbor told me, "I was at Oscar Blues, and they have a gluten-free menu!" I was sort of curious...
The Longmont Oscar Blues is new, well located, features live music, and since I drive past it every time I go to Boulder, I can attest to the fact that it's always packed. After hearing that they had gluten-free dishes, I nearly pulled in their parking lot a dozen times to go inside and check out their menu on my way home. But it wasn't until I told my husband about it that he went on their website and informed me (eagerly) about their gluten-free items.
After seeing that on Tuesdays they have gluten-free Chicken & Andouille Jambalaya we planned to try it for take-out this Tuesday night. Just in case it turned out to be a disaster, we also ordered the Freaky Greek Salad, thinking that they couldn't mess that up. It turned out that they didn't mess up either the salad or the Jambalaya in the least. In fact, it was seriously good food. Check out the nice greens and huge chunks of artichoke on this salad! Plus the portions were huge. One Jambalaya, one big salad and a couple sides of beans fed the four of us, no problem.
We might have to make it a frequent Tuesday night treat :-)

PS Andy says to tell you the cole slaw is "absolutely perfect." —I forgot he got a side of that too, since the girls and I don't eat it.
