Several weeks ago, I went to look at a car in Denver, NC. My mom and sister went with me in case I decided I wanted the car. Mine is fine, but it’s older with a lot of miles, so I want to start looking around. I have wanted a Mini Cooper for YEARS. A friend of my mom’s called to tell her that a friend of his was selling one within my budget. Obviously, I wanted to test drive it as soon as I could. A few days later, we were making the 50 minute drive to test drive it. The car ended up having way more miles on it than we were told (100,000 more), the racing stripes were fading, and the tires were balding. Hard pass. Our trip wasn’t a total waste because we went to lunch at Sports Page.
About a year ago, we were in Denver getting new iPhones and switching phone companies. My mom knew a woman who worked at this location, which is why we drove so far. Sports Page is nearby, so we went there for lunch. They had options for Nikki and had good food. Fast forward to a Saturday earlier this month and we drove 8 miles to Sports Page for a late lunch. The restaurant is located at the end of a shopping strip. When you walk in, there’s a bar to the left and regular seating to the right. Also on the right is a patio that can be covered. We opted for the restaurant side and were seated in a roomy booth.
They don’t have a large selection for Nikki to choose from, but they do have gluten-free buns. She decided to order a burger with lettuce and ketchup. Their fries aren’t cooked in soy, so Nikki was pretty happy that she could order them. Nikki enjoyed her meal, but thinks they changed brands for their gluten-free buns. She thought it was good, but not as good as the one she had the first time.
After looking over the menu several times, I decided I couldn’t pass up a Cuban sandwich (hold the mustard) and fries. It did not disappoint! Our mom had the Reuben (with corned beef) with fries. She really enjoyed her sandwich as well. It really nice to find restaurants that have options for Nikki, even in smaller cities.
On Saturday, March 31st, Gluten-Free Spirited will turn a year old! Thank you to everyone who has been on this journey with me! It truly means a lot! I’m really looking forward to what Year Two of GFS brings! Be sure to follow me on social media (handy dandy buttons are below) for something special starting on March 31. 🙂
