Who'd have thunk it? After having enjoyed the Cleveland location of Flaming Icecube a number of times, I was pleased to check out the Boardman location.
The local area is pretty charmless: Boardman-Canfield Road is many heavily trafficked miles of strip mall. So Flaming Icecube is a great respite, and well worth the trip down from Youngstown.
The food is cheap and delicious, there is an extensive vegan menu to choose from, the people are friendly, seating was easy. What's not to like? This is a super welcome option in a surprising suburban strip mall.
I had the Western Burger, and they were out of the Daiya cheddar, but it was very tasty with the Daiya mozzarella. The side potato salad needed a little salt, but it's far better to have to add it myself than have something come out oversalted.
It's a little weird that they have a chai with honey, and note that whole wheat breads *may* have honey: it's easy enough to source both of these without honey.
Just to note, the menus at both locations have exactly one item that is listed as gluten free, and the word "gluten" doesn't appear anywhere on either website.
I'll absolutely be back!Pros: cheap & tasty, extensive VEGAN menu, one of few vegan options nearby
