My dad had invited Nikki & I to dinner several times in about a 10 day period. Unfortunately, Nikki was dealing with a flare up and wasn’t ready to eat anything at a restaurant. We also needed new establishments to try. Last weekend, we were finally able to take our dad up on his offer. He had told us about a restaurant that he’d been to called Moochies Tavern.
Fortunately for us, Moochies Tavern isn’t far from Nikki & I. Prior to our visit, I attempted to find their menu online. They’re under new management, so their website is under construction. We decided to go anyway. At the very least, Nikki could eat a bun-less hamburger.
Our dad (and Caine, of course) arrived a couple minutes before us. He had already asked about a gluten-free menu, and was told that they didn’t have one. Our waitress said they did have one gluten-free bun left. She also suggested the chicken salad sandwich (which could be put on the gluten-free bun) and the lobster roll. Nikki couldn’t have either, so she decided on a hamburger with lettuce. Unfortunately, Nikki forgot to bring her own mayo with her. Our waitress was patient and got Nikki’s questions answered from the cook. Sadly, the fries are cooked in soybean oil. They also weren’t sure if their chicken marinade contained soy. Since the fries were a no go, Nikki had a side of streamed broccoli.
I considered a pulled pork sandwich, but I had that for Independence Day and leftovers for a couple days after. I decided to listen to my inner child and ordered a grilled cheese with fries. I’m glad I listened to her because it was yummy! Since the waitress was adamant that the chicken sandwich was very good, my dad decided to try it. He ordered a side of sweet potato fries. The fries came with a dip that was honey and cinnamon. He let me try it and it was really good! I don’t care for sweet potato fries, but I think the dip would’ve been the perfect partner.
Our waitress thought Caine was really sweet and brought him a bowl of water. She said they also had dog treats and asked if he could have some. I don’t think she ever brought him treats, but he had some of my dad’s fries and was quite content with that.
We all liked Moochies Tavern. It’s convenient, has a good atmosphere, and nice staff.
For those of you that can’t have gluten, soy, or dairy, you might either want to scroll past or drool on your keyboard. No judgement either way.
