Due to industry wide challenges with lettuce supply, certain menu items, including salads, may be prepared differently or unavailable for the time being. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We've noticed a problem with lettuce, in our area, also. Up until a couple of months ago, a nice head was in the $1 to $1.50 price range. Recently the prices have doubled, or more, and the heads are quite a bit smaller. This appears to be another "issue" likely related to the virus. Most of the lettuce we get comes from either California, or Mexico...and production and delivery processes are being impacted by the virus.

I haven't noticed that here, though I buy the ones in the plastic containers at Walmart. Mostly for my pet bunny. He cannot have much spinach so I usually pick that out of his portions.
