This place is fantastic!!! Ask for the gluten free menu. The server takes your order and is actually trained in all the allergens. The orders go to the manager then it goes to the kitchen manager to over see the preparation. Gf bread served before the meal. The French dip sandwich was great. Gluten free cider was good as well.

Stopped here for lunch today after eating dinner at the San Diego location on Saturday. I had the turkey meatball sandwich with side salad. The meatballs were delicious and I loved the strawberry-poppy seed dressing. My wife had the turkey pannini which she loved including the bread! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
No worries about cross contamination! I ate dinner here Saturday night with my wife and our friend. Both are trying to be gluten free and I have to be GF. The food is so good they couldn't believe it was GF. Best chicken pot pie any of us ever had. It was served with a fresh green salad that was also very good. The server brought us samples of their brownies which are incredible. We left with a bag of goodies including brownies & tiramisu which my wife thinks is the best she's ever had (I agree). If we lived here I'd be in several times a week.
So far, the GF pizza at Austin Pizza has been delicious, consistent, and carefully handled. We always order extra cheese, which seems to make it taste closer to non- GF. We prefer the Lamar location to the Four Points location, simply because they do not overcook the crust. Both have very pleasant and accommodating employees. Love that they are open late!
The food is good but there is a cross contamination issue! They use the same toasters for gf and wheat products. The cakes are thick and dry at times due to refrigeration but if made fresh ,with out refrigeration, their great! The bread is also good but the price is ridiculous for a loaf! If your not celiac than this is the perfect place for you!
This place didn't pop up on this app, but I've been to the one in New Orleans a few times and knew I would get a good meal even it was only going to be grilled fish with veg. When I asked the waitress, Sara, for GF suggestions she returned with a GF menu and a manager. We went over the regular menu and modified it a bit. The mgr. told the waitress exactly how to enter the order and what to tell the chef. I ended up with a broiled redfish with the Melissa topping, sauteed shrimp, scallops, mushrooms and lump crabmeat. This was hands down the best meal I've had since being diagnosed with Celiac. Giant kudos to the restaurant, the unbelievably accomodating manager and the chef for an over the top dining experience! BTW, the manager came by to check on my meal and informed me that the only dessert I could have was the creme brulee (as if I had any room for dessert!)
Delicious food, a lot of which is inherently non-gluten. I had one of the hashes with some scrambled eggs and GF toast. Also had options for GF pancakes and even GF donut bites! Next time we go we'll be sure to eat the bites there instead of to-go though. Turned into a jelly/custard mess in the box.
If you're gluten free this is the place to be! All sandwiches on the menu can be made gluten free (if you have Celiac they even have a separate work station and change gloves) and there are also several other delicious options. Taste is not sacrificed and the food is absolutely amazing as well as the customer service. If I lived in the area this would be my regular for sure, love the place.
