This restaurant has educated staff and a manager that is very aware of gluten free procedures. I ordered a grilled chicken with no seasoning, the manager came out to share the presoak marinade with me concerned for my safety. Kudos to you! One of the few places in Menifee I feel safe coming to. 8/27 I am adding to my original post. I visited this restaurant today and was given some cheapie, printed gluten free menu that didn't have all the pages. When I asked, I was told they ran out of the brochure menus and the manager provided me a new brochure. It was at that time, I knew I shouldn't eat there. If they do not think enough of their food allergy customers to keep a menu in stock, they surely cannot have the procedures in place to avoid cross-contamination. After I ate my dinner, immediately I was sick. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with severe allergies to gluten.
Yes...the Gluten Free Menu is limited...but I was soooo HaPpY when I found out they had one. I chose a salad with GF ranch dressing and the GF cheese pizza~ but I asked for fresh tomato and basil to be added on it.(great addition) I received my meal and not only did it look delicious it tasted FABuLOUS!!! The GF pizza crust had great flavor and the texture was that of any other thin crust pizza. Really!! I was like a little kid grinning ear to ear. Best part was I felt perfect after eating my meal. I can't wait to go back!!
The gluten free menu was very limited. It listed a potatoe with creamy alfredo sauce, veggies and cheese and in parentheses at the end said no alfredo sauce. Also listed a blackened chicken/salmon with creamy chardonnay butter sauce, rice pilaf and veggies. At the end said no chardonnay butter suace and no rice pilaf. Very limited. Then when they put the tortilla chips on top that had been in the fryer with other gluten products the cook wanted to just take it off and said it would be just fine but the waitress made them remake it. If it werent for her I probably wouldn't have gotten a bad stomache ache
I call my order for take out. I told the girl working several times to make sure not to put French onions on the chicken. My boyfriend picked up the food without checking and I saw the onions all over my chicken. I called back so they could re make my order, the girl put me on hold to get a manger but never picked up the phone. I have to call back five times to get through a manger which took three hours. I am beyond frustrated with this place and will never go back.
I ordered the gluten free piazza and then ordered the gluten free pizookie cooky. I hot home and got so sick from pain I suffered all night. I wondered if there was cross contamination in the food somewhere. I certainly think twice before going back there
I have celiac disease. Everything that is made for me was made in a separate area with separate dishes and utensils. The server ,Ted was very knowledgeable . I had the pizza and pizookie. Everything was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant .
They knew what they were doing here! I got a gluten-free thin crust pizza and a pear cider and both tasted great! The waiter knew to ask if it was an allergy so they could be careful of cross contamination. I will be going back. 😊
Every time I go here I get sick. I keep trying it hoping they'll figure it out. They are all clueless.
Consistently great food. I especially love the pizza! I eat there often and never have I had any issues and never sick! They know how to take care of gluten intolorance! Yeah!!!
I love BJ's. It seems that I eat here once a week. I'm extremely sensitive and I get gluten-free pizza or house Sirloin with mash potatoes and i don't get sick. And the gluten-free pazooki are amazing! They also have Wyders and Berry Burst on draft. Because I work in a bar and know how it goes for bar dishes I always ask them to rinse the glass out for me first. Celiac safe for sure.
A pretty bad experience! I will not set foot inside one of your restaurants again. It is very difficult for me to eat out because of my celiac disease. When I find a restaurant that already has a gluten free menu, I expect the wait staff and kitchen to understand what that means! My waiter was nice enough and did note the my order should be gluten free. HOWEVER, the kitchen plopped fried onion rings on top of my dish.(Balsamic chicken breast on field greens, no potatoes or onion rings. A different server brought the dish to my table. I pointed out the problem and he didn't know what I was a talking about. He took the plate away and said he'd find my wait person. We had already waited beyond a reasonable amount of time for our orders (3 of us). Now I had to wait about 10 minutes for the wait person to come back to the table so I could explain the problem. He said he'd get a new plate right away. It took another 15 minutes. My friends accompanying me were done with their meal by now and I wasn't served yet. Finally the meal comes. I started to cut the chicken breast and could not cut through. It was very tough and dry. It needed a steak knife. I tasted it anyway. It was horrible!!! Dry, tough, extremely salty and tasted very bad. Obviously NOT fresh chicken. Or they microwaved it to death. I couldn't eat it. I had the waiter remove the item from the check. Paid the bill for my friends meal. I left starving. Absolutely horrible and demeaning experience.
VERY limited selection. Pizza and gluten free beer, but they also have a GF pazookie that was delicious. have never had any issues after eating here
A bit pricey, but they have many options that are not otherwise available in the area, plus the staff are very friendly. We ordered a pizza and steak and they were both good. My wife is very gluten sensitive and didn't have a reaction, but she took several gluten digest pills just in case of cross contamination.
Saib (Kitchen Manager) and Diego do an excellent job making our gluten free dairy free pizzas safe and delicious! They always come out and say hi and personally make our food (we ask for them when we arrive at our table). Saib has personal experience with food allergies so he totally understands cross-contamination. They always use fresh ingredients on our pizzas so they don't cross-contaminate with the toppings used for regular pizzas. We have never gotten sick and we are super sensitive to minute amounts of gluten. Delicious pizzas!
Kayla was outstanding! Explaining how they keep everything separate in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination. Pizza was amazing & cookie pizookie was delicious! Even my husband who is not GF loved it! It a must eat place for is next time we are in the area!
Since finding out that I have to be gluten free, I have to say that BJ's has made it very easy to pick meals for myself if we go out to eat. If you're ever in doubt, ask for Sabrina, she happens to be my daughter and won't give you a hard time or question you. And as you could imagine, living with me - she knows and understands all of it. No cross contamination there, including with your leftovers!
All they had was pizza! Lame .....
Ok GF options, but it's just mass produced, Cisco frozen food and tastes like it. Most servers not well versed in anything GF. Ok place to go with others who aren't healthy eaters
I ate their pepperoni pizza and pizcookie; both were delicious and the waitress seemed to be very careful with the food. Very very yummy!
Successful trip with my highly sensitive celiac girls- had the GF cheese pizza. My kids really liked it. Can't wait to try the GF dessert!
Used to love love this restaurant. Then I was given an old menu and ordered an item that is now NOT gluten free. Of course I didn't realize that day that I was given an old gluten-free menu. When I had a reaction and looked into why, I discovered I'd been given an old menu and discussed this, in person, with the manager. He was unfriendly, unsympathetic, and thoroughly ignorant regarding the severity of food allergies. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT.
I didn't find a huge selection of gf menu items, but what I did have was excellent. My sirloin steak was cooked perfectly with an excellent grilled flavor and juicy taste. I had the roasted brussel sprouts and steamed green beans as sides. They were great. There are several other whole-food veggie sides including roasted asparagus, broccoli, and a seasonal selection. Great choices if you try to eat whole/clean/paleo. I had the Omission pale ale which was a beautiful amber color, a little hoppy for me at first (not a fan of pronounced hops), but great with my steak. For dessert, I had an amazing double berry beer drink (mix of 2 berry gf beers). So DELICIOUS you must try if you enjoy ciders/fruity drinks/sparkling wine (they do tasters. I also had the gf mini pizookie and it was yummy. It was undercooked so it was still gooey, which I love, and the bartender told me is how they intentionally serve it. The scoop of ice cream it came with was a delicious, high-quality vanilla bean. I sat at the bar and had excellent service, with fabulous, on-target recommendations from both bartenders on duty.
