Monday lunch btwn Haverhill and Manchester, MA?

It seems difficult to find a non-chain chowish restaurant for a Monday lunch in the area between Haverhill and Manchester, MA (not NH). Any cuisine is good but Italian poses a menu challenge to my celiac friend. All suggestions gratefully accepted! TIA.

  1. If you are taking route 133, the Agawam Diner at intersection of 1A or Essex Seafood.

    1. You could consider Karl's Sausage Kitchen in Peabody. I haven't been to the new location, but a friend went and said that the atmosphere wasn't quite as cozy as the old place, but the food was excellent.

      They have a gluten-free menu but I have no idea how vigilant they are about cross-contamination.

      1. Choate Bridge Pub, Ipswich. Basic, good.

        1. also the Thai restaurant- The Royal Orchid- in that small strip mall near Market Basket. I think it's called The Market Place, but I'm not sure. Closed on Tuesday in case your plans change.

          1. Sorry, Royal Orchid in Rowley too; not far from the Agawam Diner
