Went here based on the recommendation of several friends and other reviews- Waitress was VERY accommodating and I think they want to do things right- She checked with the kitchen numerous times about gf menu options- Was even offered the ability to prepare a special entree to meet my allergy needs including subbing gluten free pasta instead of risotto...Unfortunately, brussels sprouts caesar salad came out with croutons on it despite ordering gluten free- when sent back, it was returned with them pulled off. Had to send back a third time requesting a new order to be made. I don't know if it was or not...Hard to trust a kitchen when this happens...Lamb was prepared extremely rare as well (ordered medium)- Kitchens have off nights...maybe this was one of them?

Gluten free macaroni, pizza, and calzones! It says on the board to pre order 1 hour early, but they had some gf stuff available. Dough is a little crunchy, but the calzone was really good. The cashier said she was celiac and they are very careful if you need them to be.
I had a very bad experience here. Was served the fajitas with flour tortillas. When I questioned it - the waitress told me they were GF. I asked to see the manager - who couldn't apologize enough for the waitress - who was wrong. Be careful if you eat here!
I have enjoyed delicious food at the Red Bicycle four times. My daughter & I both had slight reactions two of those times. During the last visit, I discovered that the staff "sanitizes" the grill for GF crepes. The chef showed me the circular grill which had been "sanitized." It is an 18" diameter circular grill that is one-half of a 2 disc grill set. The "GF" grill is separated by about 2 inches of space. I find it difficult to believe that the wheat flour would not splash on to the disc next to it. I'm opting to have my crepe ingredients put on a salad from now on.
I love this place! I'm definitely not as sensitive as others, but I love that I can get great pizza and have a lot of options with topping combos. The staff have always been well informed, too, when I've tried to order something that wasn't actually gluten free. They have a great kids play area for the littles ones, so this is a favorite place for us!
we went recently because they advertised gluten free burger buns. they were amazing. you will need to use your smart phone to access their gf menu. the server was friendly and helpful. so happy to actually eat a real bacon cheeseburger with bun. wow! we will be back.
I've eaten safely here several times. the staff seems knowledgeable and helpful. they have gf pizza, pasta, salads and other main dishes that can be modified to be gf. one time when I was there they had a wonderful gf dessert. it was bananas, vanilla pudding and whipped cream. it was so nice to be able to enjoy a meal with the family and not feel like the problem child. 😉
Almost the ENTIRE menu is Gluten free. Amazing atmosphere with inside and outside seating and us right on Katie Trail. Our server was awesome and the GF CHICKEN FRIED STEAK was so good. Honey jalapeño gravy and baked on sure GF bread was some of best I've had. The desserts, hand squeezed juice, chili ....such a great menu. Locally sourced, grassfed and cage free. All around great spot!
