All Star Lanes - Brick Lane

I was invited out to All Star Lanes last Friday for bowling followed by a meal. After first panicking about the bowling, I started to panick about what I'd actually be able to eat. The food is famous for being American diner inspired so I wasn't holding out much hope for anything other than steak or salad. I fired off an email to the customer services address on the website and they responded with a handy allergy guide to the menu. (Really not sure why they couldn't just put this on the menu itself).

Here's the full list of wheat free items from the menu (done all the hard work to save you the trouble, ain't I great?!)

Tomato, avocado, Roquefort cheese, palm heart salad

I ended up having the Half chicken, BBQ sauce and slaw. The chicken was pretty huge with a really tasty marinade, really moist. I added chips as a side dish. Chips, coleslaw and BBQ sauce were OK, nothing special or particularly YUM. Bit disappointed that I couldn't get their 'award winning' chilli con carne. And their alcoholic milkshakes were £6!
Oh, and the service was pretty shocking as I'd already read all over the internet. I was in a group of about 20 and they left us alone for 30-40 minutes, didn't even take a drinks order. Go figure.
