Even though we just went to try out Ted’s Montana Grill last month, we decided to go again after we found out that they have now included gluten free buns on their menu. There are not many  places in the Atlanta suburban area where you can get a delicious hamburger on a gluten free bun, and only one place where you can get a bison burger on a gluten free bun. Ted’s Montana Grill is that place.

Fabgrandpa doesn’t have to eat a gluten free diet. He is a lucky guy who can eat just about anything on the menu every where we go. He ordered the bison pot roast with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. It is slow cooked to perfection and has a brown gravy that looked soooo good. It’s a good choice if you don’t have to keep gluten out of your diet.

I, however, am gluten intolerant, and have to make sure what I eat does not contain gluten. That is what makes it so special for me to get a burger at Ted’s Montana Grill now. The gluten free bun on my Ted’s Bacon Cheeseburger made with bison, swiss cheese, bacon, and avocado, tasted to good. It was soft, and springy, just like a regular bun would be. Now THIS is what a burger should be like:

I ordered two sides: roasted asparagus and sliced tomatoes. The roasted asparagus was cooked to perfection! So often restaurants don’t do so well with the vegetable sides, but I can tell you I would order the asparagus again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my gluten free bison burger!

Here is one more look at that burger. I can’t tell you just how good it was, you  really have to go to Ted’s and experience it for yourself. If you eat a gluten free diet for whatever reason, you owe it to  yourself to get one of these gluten free burgers. Whether you get the beef or the bison version, the same great tasting gluten free bun will hold it all together.

The avocado is an extra, but worth the cost. Great tasting burger at Ted's Montana Grill

Ted’s Montana Grill gets their gluten free buns from Pure Knead Bakery in Decatur, Georgia. Find a location near  you at the Ted’s Montana Grill website.

In addition to gluten free hamburger buns, Pure Knead also bakes up Classic Sandwich Bread and a variety of sweets available in bakeries around the area.

Last week Fabgrandpa and I were invited to Ted’s Montana Grill in Marietta, Georgia to try the bison on the menu. We asked our friends, Elaine and Denney, to meet us there.

Denney said “She’s not taking pictures again is she?”

Ted’s Montana Grill began when Ted Turner and George McKerrow Jr. joined forces to bring a dream of creating a restaurant that would share his love of Big Sky Country and its tradition of hearty food. He also wanted to celebrate an American icon: The bison. The first Ted’s Montana Grill opened in Columbus, Ohio in 2002. Now every Ted’s serves up meals made with the ingredients and hospitality that define the Great American West while also preserving and building the bison herds in America.

Kale Salad

Fabgrandpa started out his meal with the Kale Salad. This was a delicious combination of roasted corn, anaheim pepper, vine-ripened tomato, and fresh herbs, with vinaigrette dressing. I tasted it and would likely order it next time we go. I, of course, had the Crab Cake Appetizer.

Ted’s version of Crab Cakes was pretty good. It was served with a bit of guacamole and kale salad.

Next, I ordered the George’s Cadillac Bison Burger. It was huge! The toppings on the Cadillac were BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, chipotle ranch dressing, and onion straws. To get it gluten free, ask to leave off the bun and the onion straws. I was distracted when the food was served, and completely forgot to take a picture of my meal! I just can not believe I did that. The plate was completed by french fries.

Bison Meatloaf

Fabgrandpa loves meatloaf. He orders it whenever it on the menu anywhere we go. This meatloaf was made with bison, and a very generous portion was served. I did not taste it, but Fabgrandpa loved it, and ate every bit. It came with real mashed potatoes, gravy, a biscuit, and squash casserole.

Checking to make sure we had everything we needed.

When I saw the squash casserole, I ordered a side for myself, and I have to say, it was the best squash casserole I have ever had in a restaurant. It tasted like the squash casserole that my Mother makes.

Elaine also ordered the meatloaf. She told me she has been to Ted’s before, and loves their meatloaf.

I did get a photo of Denney’s Bacon Cheese Burger, but it doesn’t show the goodness of it, just the bun mostly. The Bacon  Cheeseburger comes with cheddar or swiss cheese, bacon, and grilled onions.

Besides  burgers and meatloaf, the menu has a varied selection: fish, chicken, and meatloaf sandwiches; entrée salads  such as Balsamic Blue Steak Salad, Caesar Grilled Chicken Salad; Steaks, Pot Roast, Salmon, Roasted Chicken, and more. The Desserts menu looked pretty good but we were all too full to try any. There were Strawberry Shortcake, Wildberry Cheesecake, Haagen Daas Ice Cream to name just a few.

There is a gluten free menu available, as well as a kids menu. Elaine had a cup of coffee that made me wish I had ordered it because it smelled so good!

Burgers are priced in a range of $11 to $18, the meatloaf is $16. Sandwiches are in the $11 to $13 range. We had a late lunch that was very filling, and left us with no need to have a supper later. We felt that the prices were fair for the foods that were served.
