Gluten Free In Libby, Montana

Treasure Mountain Gluten Free Grub | by Julianne La Porte | October 1, 2013

Leaving your hometown when you have celiac disease or food allergies can be nerve racking. Lately, I've been traveling way more than I like. This time, I headed to Big Sky Country, Montana. My friends live in the middle of nowhere. I mean, there is no cell service and internet can be sketchy. So, you can imagine the trepidation when asking about gluten free menus or cross contact procedures. I mean, no technology  how could they possibly know about gluten?!?!


Ok, so I stereotyped this a bit, but I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. After landing in Spokane, WA and driving 3 1/2 hours, we arrived in Libby, MT. Libby is small town with lots of bars and lots of mini casinos. Things were not looking promising. I gave up thinking about food and was glad that I packed my go picnic boxes. I told my husband that I was feeling lucky and to pull into the first restaurant/bar/casino we saw. I thought, if I can't eat, I can have a glass of wine, relax and play some video poker, right? Not all bad. Let me tell you, I hit the jackpot! Treasure Mountain Restaurant definitely was a little treasure. As my waitress approached, with much trepidation, the words, "Do you have a gluten free menu, I am on a strict gluten free diet?" fell out of my mouth. With a big smile that lit up the room, she said "So am I!" My mouth agape, she continued to tell me her favorite items that were safe and informed me that the kitchen was aware of cross contact. Needless to say, I safely enjoyed the Chicken Avocado over Vegetables and it was delicious. I'm not a huge chicken fan, but this was seriously good.


We drove another hour and arrived at our friends' home. We ate at the local restaurant and saloon, The Kicking Horse. Again, with a tremble in my voice, I eked a "do you have gluten free items?" Astonished replied yes, just the regular burger. He actually mentioned that I could not do the homemade fries because he fries them with other gluten laden items. Geez! I couldn't believe that he even realized what gluten was and what being gluten free meant. It was a great burger!


If you've eaten at Treasure Mountain Restaurant in Libby, MT or the Kicking Horse Saloon located between Libby and Kalispell, please take the time to leave a  review on their restaurant page. I know I will. Goes to show, don't ever judge a book by it's cover. With this kind of luck I should have played the lottery!
