There are lots of gluten free options on the menu of this Portuguese and Spanish restaurant. Today they have gluten free chicken noodle soup! The waitress was most accommodating and offered to provide lunch-sized portions of all dinner items. The atmosphere is bistro-like with pleasant classical guitar background music. I had tortilla espanola, which was simple and authentic, crisp and not oily.
Most excellent. Wait staff was fairly knowledgeable and was able to ask an owner when she didn't know the answer. Delicious chicken breast served on a GF bun that was very tasty. Best GF/DF meal I've had on the outer banks of NC.
My husband is gluten sensitive and dairy sensitive and we wanted to eat here after reading the raves. They give many options and he chose. The chicken sandwich. The GF bun was the best looking GF bun I've ever seen and he said it tasted good. I had the crab cake sliders and they were so good my eyes rolled into the back of my head. The staff was friendly and good.
I was not excited to try this place due to the other reviews. Our service was actually pretty good - not lightning fast, but our waiter was attentive and I don't remember anyone's glass getting empty without a refill. The food was so so. I ordered the chicken cacciatore. It was served over polenta - which was an interesting flavor combination, but nothing I'd order again. I was a little disappointed when I was told they had gluten free bread and all I got was two pieces of toast! However, they were knowledgable about food allergies and I did not get sick. Not my best gluten free dining experience, but certainly not the worst.

Had a wonderful meal here last weekend. The pork tenderloin was cooked to perfection and served on a bed of spicy rice. The server seemed to have good knowledge of Celiac and was quick to warn of cross contamination with the chips as they are not cooked in a dedicated fryer (wanted to mention that due to the last review). The only cons are it is a tad pricey and the restaurant itself is small so you may need reservations. Will return when I'm in the area.
Stopped here for lunch before heading to the beach. Had the fish tacos and they were really good. The staff is knowledgeable about cross-contamination and very accommodating. A little pricey, but worth it to stay healthy. Will stop here again when I'm in the area.
This place is awesome! Using a savory waffle as a pizza crust is a genius idea. Hands down the best gf pizza crust I've ever had! The guacamole was also phenomenal - and I'm not a huge fan of guacamole. I was also lucky enough to be able to sample their coconut cake and it was amazing as well. And to top it off, the prices are very reasonable for gluten free. Probably the best meal I've had since going gluten free 2 years ago. Will definitely be back when I'm in the area!
The food is good, but the GF pasta made me sick. I don't know if they use the same water for GF and non-GF pasta. I've never tried their pizza because I'm also not sure how careful they are about cross contamination. If you stick to a salad, you should be safe!

Great place! Service was great. Had a ham/bacon/cheese sandwich on gf bread. Great sandwich! Had their gf almond cheesecake and WOW! It was huge and so good! Great little place, nice staff, will definitely be back!
I didn't get sick after eating here, but the waitress (while really nice) didn't make me feel very confident about ordering gf. Maybe she's just really use to it, but it wasn't reassuring. The food was mediocre, my steak was huge, it was not worth the money we spent on dinner. Hubby was still hungry, even after finishing off our sons dinner. We won't be back.
#1 most important thing (for me anyhow) was VERY knowledgeable waiter. Didn't have to ask many questions, he was honest and pointed out that their GM (gluten modified) meals still ran the risk of cross contamination because of a shared fryer, vs their GF (gluten free) foods. So, no fries here, but I had their steak and cheese sandwich on gf bun and it was good. Will absolutely be back. One of the cheaper places we've eaten on vacation so far.
Casa Grande does now have a gluten free menu. It's fairly long, taking up two sides of a full page, with lots of good choices. I was pleasantly surprised and the food was great! Our waitress however seemed not to know what gluten was. I just relied on what was on the gluten free menu. I took a picture of the menu, hoping to find a way to upload it here, but I can't seem to find a way to do that.
