Anna Rose - Gluten Free Dining In Rutherfordton, Nc

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just had to share about the best dining experience I've had in a long time! Gluten-free eating in Rutherfordton, NC. Anna Rose Restaurant @ 213 Main Street is quite a delight!

Tired, cold and hungry and not exactly wanting to pay a huge price for "fine dining" that might be iffy (in that I might get glutenized), we decided try Anna Rose on Main Street because we'd seen the sign saying they served natural, hormone free meats and local organic veggies. I figured I could at least get a decent salad. when I spoke to the waitress about being celiac, she responded by saying "Let me get the chef to come out and speak with you because we have one other lady who eats here that has that." Moments later, Chef/Owner Gary came to our table to talk to us. A pleasant, helpful man, he told us all of his bread and marinades were gluten-free! I could pretty much eat anything on the menu even the desserts! (The wraps are wheat, though). He described the ingredients in his sunflower bread to us and I wish I'd listened more carefully LoL The sunflower bread rocked!! Even my partner raved about it and he doesn't have to eat gluten-free. I got the roast beef paninni on the sunflower bread. And the waitress brought out extra bread before the meal, too. I've been gluten-free for a year now and it was the best experience I've had eating out and wanted to be able to spread the word. The restaurant has only been open for about 10 weeks, but I surely do hope they make it!!

Kudos to Chef Gary and his wife for creating a restaurant dedicating to serving healthy food for all! :D

Wow, that restaurant sounds awesome. We live in Lexington so would be about a 2 hour drive but sounds like it would be worth it. Maybe stop there on our way somewhere or just make it a day trip. Is it on North or South main st? Do you know what days they are open? Wonder why they don't advertise as serving gluten-free bread etc. I bet they would see an increase in business fast.

Thanks for the tip. Belinda

Anna Rose Restaurant

213 North Main Street

Rutherfordton, NC 28139

828-288-2600

I have no idea as to their hours, we were just in town to see the new grand-baby. :D

I do know it is located next door to Gregory's and is on the left side of the street if you are coming from Hwy 74.

I can't wait to eat there again! If you go, I am sure it will be worth the trip. Lake Lure, Bat Cave and Chimney Rock Park are all nearby and Asheville is only about 45 minutes away.

Asheville has several places to eat gluten-free, but my two favorites would have to be Greenlife Grocery -- they've got an awesome fresh food selection (hot and cold dishes) and a dining area to eat -- and Rosetta's Kitchen on Lexington.

Thanks so much Becca. We will definitely be checking that out. We love Asheville and are usually up that way at least once a year. Now, I have some new places to take my Celiac hubby as a surprise. Thanks again.

Belinda in Lexington (come on down for the 25th BBQ Festival on the 25th) BBQ and slaw is gluten-free (just skip the bun)
