My husband and I have ordered out from here twice and I really enjoyed my food and most importantly, I did not get sick. My husband spoke to the owner to make sure they understood that I have Celiac. When the order came out, the owner double-checked it and it wasn't gluten free. He admitted that it was his fault and forgot to put it on the ticket. He threw it right in the trash and they made us all new sandwiches. The second time we were there, everything went smoothly and I had no reactions. I will definitely be back next time I'm out on Sanibel!
I absolutely would not recommend this place for gluten free. I went there with my family and ended up not even ordering anything because the lack of understanding was shocking. Their gluten free menu is pathetic.. You can order a sandwich.. but don't expect any bread. You will literally get lunch meat on a plate. No thank you.
Its hard to complain when a restaurant has a dedicated space for gluten free pizza. I have eaten here several times and I have never gotten sick. The first time I had their pizza, it was great. Other times, it tasted underdone and doughy. For me, it has been a hit or miss on taste but I can say, I've never gotten sick. I really am just thankful that there's a safe place I can go when on Sanibel. Maybe next time, I'll ask them to cook it a little longer.
I went here for a girl's night with 3 other friends that were kind enough to eat gluten free with me, since you do share the same pot. They have a gluten free menu with a lot more selections than I anticipated. Even with the cheddar cheese fondue, they used corn starch instead of flour and gluten free beer! it tasted just as I remember from before I was diagnosed Celiac. Their gluten free bread is well, you know.. gluten free bread. But I didn't even care. Even for dessert, they have gluten free brownies, marshmallows, chocolate.. Everything was delicious and I did not get sick!
Ate here yesterday and been sick since. I've tried it three times since it is close by and a family favorite, I've gotten sick each time. Cross contamination definitely an issue, I would not recommend if you are Celiac.
This is hands down some of the best mexican food I've ever had. The stuffed poblano pepper and choriqueso (sort of a paste of chorizo and cheese) are fantastic, and as other reviewers have noted this is NOT your average flan - flan is normally something where I can take it or leave it, but theirs is incredible. Also make sure you eat plenty of the house hot salsa.
Servers are generally knowledgeable, just make sure you:
a) specify gluten-free chips, as the house chips are not gf
b) ask about the rice, as sometimes it is gf (not sure what they add to it exactly to make it not gf, but that's what I was told)
I've not eaten here and most likely will never. I was out walking my Dog tonight and witnessed their delivery driver blow right thru 5 stop signs in two minutes. This was the corners of Newhall Ave. & 16th and Walnut & 16th. Newhall & 16th is a 4-way Stop. He blew thru this intersection 3 times going to those horrible townhomes on the northwest corner and then when he was done delivering there, he blew thru that one again and then went right thru the intersection @ Walnut & 16th. There's absolutely No Excuse. There was minimal traffic. The only times he even slowed down was to turn the corners. In my book, if you hire someone who has no regard for traffic laws, then your food must be crap and you have no regard for your customers buying your food and for the folks who spend their hard earned money patronizing your business. Leadership and respect start at the top and if you can not convey to your employees the need to show respect for our Traffic rules/ Laws, then you're never going to get my money. There are a lot of very small children and dogs in this neighbourhood that, if out could have been killed the way this moron was driving!
very nice atmosphere. had special bday dinner here. served a tasty GF chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. had separate GF menu but does not have dedicated kitchen space or dedicated fryer, & yet several items (like fries) were listed on GF menu. flatbread with goat cheese, tomatoes & basil was so-so, Wilde chopped salad was very good.
I live in Springfield, MO (3 hrs away) & we're known for Spfld Style Cashew Chicken. Sadly, not 1 restaurant in town serves GF Cashew Chicken & there's only 1 Chinese place in town that has a real GF Menu. I have to say, I was nervous about eating here in August as we had a 3+ hr drive home & did not want to be "Celiac sick" the entire way as I get sick QUICK! I had absolutely NO ISSUES!!! I had Chicken Fried Rice & LOVED IT! Better than any place in my hometown or area. My husband got his Beef & Broccoli Gluten Free so I could taste his & that was also AMAZING!!!! We have to come back to KC for some more testing @ KU Hosp for my hubby & I've already informed him if we don't eat here, I want take-out to bring home...I'm taking a cooler w me for drinks so why not!?! Beyond pleased w my meal & service! THANK YOU!!!!!
