Gluten Free Selinsgrove

It wasn't an easy thing to do... find a restaurant in Selinsgrove, PA (aka "middle of nowhere") that could seat 11 people with no reservations, and have something everyone would like, from small children to little old ladies, and have gluten free food as well.  Amazingly enough, we found a place!  The Longhorn Steakhouse is a chain restaurant with an official gluten free menu.

I had a steak (Flo's Fillet) with a baked sweet potato and asparagus.  They veggies were very nicely done.  Asparagus is not always prepared well --- too often it ends up limp and stringy, but this was excellent, as was the sweet potato.  The steak... well, I always order my steak rare, as overcooking ruins a good cut of meat.  This was the first time EVER that I wished I had ordered it medium.  I was forgetting that you have to have a good cut of meat in the first place, in order to ruin it.  I think this mediocre steak probably would have benefited from a little more time on the grill.

Nevertheless, I applaud them for having a GF menu and I think it was still an excellent choice for our dinner that night, since it met so many of our needs.
