"The Meatless Monday Indian Style today was incredibly good! Even better than last week's, which was very good as well. However, I would have liked it a lot better if it was a little less spicy. I think it was too spicy for many peoples' tastes."
Thank you for the feedback. The Meatless Monday Indian Cuisine concept is now going on its third week - and we've received lots of good comments. Recipes and spices are evolving - we'll tone down the spices a little this time. Keep the comments coming!
"Are the bbq sauces gluten free? (Specifically, the one served by the grill in the MP, the one at the pump in the MP, and the one served at the cooler)."
Good question. The Heinz BBQ sauce served in the pump at the Marketplace is GF, per their website. The Marketplace Grill and Tiger Cooler Grill serve different varieties of the Cattlemen's brand (Kansas City Classic and Texas Smokey, respectively). The ingredients appear to be GF, and many GF resource websites list Cattlemen's as GF, but Cattlemen's website doesn't specifically make any mention of GF.
FYI, here's a very good resource for researching whether commercial brands are GF, a database maintained by the Celiac Disease Foundation: http://cdfresourcedirectory.com/
"Can you please explain the rational for charging an extra $0.75 to grill onions at the cooler? I can understand adding an additional fee to orders that include extra sauce/condiments, but when my burger/sandwich already comes with an order of onions (factored into the price)- I’m having trouble understanding why tossing them onto the grill (that’s already cooking my sandwich) would cost anything extra.
Also, the barbeque sauce is a bit pricy considering you can get it for free (in two different places) at the marketplace."
The onions included on grill orders at no charge are just a few rings. Orders for grilled onions require a small handful. We use a larger quantity because they reduce as they are grilled. Grilling also takes staff time and oil.
Ketchup, mustard, mayo and relish are all offered complimentary at the Tiger Cooler- as these are considered standard and the costs are relatively low. All other sauces/toppings are not only more expensive, they must be packaged by the staff into small containers (which come at a price). The Cooler does not have space to maintain multiple dispensers like at the Marketplace.
"The noodle specialty salad today (Sept 21st) was super good! Please make it again soon!"
Thanks for letting us know - the chances of a salad returning increase greatly whenever we receive a favorable comment!
