While everything was delicious, they need to learn something about gluten free cooking. My wife, who has celiac disease, ordered from the gluten free menu. Almost as soon as we left the restaurant, she became very ill. Our guess is they cooked her gluten free pasta in the same water as regular pasta, or cross contaminated the gluten free bread products.
I had a severe gluten reaction last night after dining here (I had grilled shrimp, Gouda grits, tartar sauce), despite speaking with a manager and carefully ordering off the gluten free allergy menu. For those suffering with Celiac Disease, it seems more care needs to be taken so be careful when eating here.
Update: after speaking with a manager today, we figured out that the grits were cross contaminated and they are removing them from the menu until they can get a safe option.
The food here is amazing! The staff is always so nice and helpful. They have an extensive knowledge of the menu. The place is always clean and the prices are reasonable, especially for the portions! I like The Couch Tomato because their food is all grease and fat. The ingredients are fresh and healthy. They have very creative and different menu options. This is definitely not your typical pizza place!
A great find! I could not contain my excitement when I saw a billboard for it as I was driving down the road! Got a great sandwich there, and my sister really liked the pizza. The whole place is gluten free. The only thing missing is some produce. Still, a great place to stop when you are in the area.
I'm not Celiac, just gluten sensitive...but I've dined in a lot of restaurants that claim to have gluten free offerings and let me say, this one is at the top of the pile! They offer a lot of GF options - more than many restaurants. I was able to have fried clams, which I have always loved but haven't been able to eat in years! The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about their GF process and selection, and even offered a GF roll (one of the best I've ever had). Even the dessert menu has GF options. The Belgian chocolate mousse parfait was wonderful. Will definitely visit here again!

Excellent! If you like tacos you will love this place. My kids loved it too! You just let them know you need gluten free and they give you a corn tortillas instead. Delish! The pico de gallo is yum! We got the barbacoa ( shredded beef). Definitely recommend!
I love the food here but they had NO seperate GF menu available for my daughter's needs. We always choose not to chance it so had to leave. Hopefully they will catch up soon by meeting GF regulatory guidelines for a seperate GF menu selection.
Great service and delicious food! Got the corn tortilla tacos with rice and beans, and the staff changed their gloves and steamed my tortillas on foil when I noted I had celiac. Definitely go if you're in Ptown and looking for good Mexican food!
