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
The food was excellent. There was a ton of choices to choose from. I had the Gf pizza and it was one of the best I have had. I also ordered the GF pizzokie which was a little undercooked but it was still really good. The service was excellent for a holiday weeknight.
So I always get the same thing the tomato soup no croutons and a baked potato. They were out of baked potatoes so my waiter offered a salad. I made sure to let him know it had to be gluten free, but when it came there were crumbs all over the top and a huge piece of crouton in the salad! I showed him this and he was very apologetic but he never brought out a new salad! Or asked if there was anything else he could do! At other bus when they messed things up they gave us a free gluten free pizookie! Still like bus as a good chain option for gluten free but was very disappointed in this location
I asked for a gluten free balsamic chicken dishes. And they tried to serve the onion strings that have gluten in it on top of the balsamic chicken. Thank goodness I know better and more than the staff... I tried to explain celiacs but who knows if they care...
Only one star because I had to . My daughter never eats out because of the anxiety of being glutened. Tonight, she was glutened so badly, we barely made it home before she became violently ill. My husband found a noodle in his gluten free dish. The gluten free dishes were delivered to the table at the same time with the gluten dishes, waitress knocked my daughters silverware off of her plate and picked it up with her gluten contaminated hands, not even realizing this could be an issue. She ordered a gluten free pizza and a gluten free pazookie. Never again. Now my daughter will spend the rest of her birthday and the days following sick.
I eat here regularly with my family. BBQ chicken chopped salad "with no onion strings" and a gluten allergy explained is what I order. Others in my party get the gluten free pizza. We have never gotten ill from this location and feel comfortable eating here. For extra calories and enjoyment, get the gluten free chocolate chip pizookie. It's TOO good.
GF menu and staff say they mark tickets GF allergen if you ask them. I always ask the manager to get involved in hotside operations, to ensure busy staff are not overlooking GF processes. Staff and managers are always GF friendly. Our family has not had any problems with GF cross contamination here. Well done!
They always take such great care of me when I come here! I eat here A LOT and I think I've only gotten sick once, which is what sometimes happens when you go out to eat at a place like this. This was when they were relatively new though. Ever since I've been back they always make sure everything is safe. Recently the manager gave my fiancé and I free pizookies because it was taking a long time and they wanted to ensure they were prepared safely for us :) the only downside is there is very limited food options if you don't like getting the same thing, but I always get pizza and a pizookie!
So glad to find a new gluten-free option in Tallahassee. They understand how to prevent cross contamination. The tomato bisque made for a great starter. For the entree, the balsamic glazed chicken is amazingly tender & tasty. I substituted the mashed potatoes for a baked potato. My friend had the GF Hawaiian pizza which was one of the better GF crusts we've had. We shared the pizookie which is a warm GF chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream on top. I will definitely be back.
Service here is ridiculously slow and staff is not knowledgable.
This is a fantastic place if your gluten free. Has a menu for all allergies. Has appetizers, soups, steaks, Sides and the best part is......DESSERT! A single serving or a big JUST baked, warm gluten free chocolate chip cookie with vanilla bean ice cream on it. I was AWESOME!
BJ's misses the boat. They give lip service to having gluten-free food, but they only have a few token choices, they are sloppy with cross-contamination and corporate just doesn't care to do gluten-free recipes even when it's easy. They do have a good (one flavor) gluten-free pizza and a good (one flavor) gluten-free cookie. Everything else that is gluten-free tends to cluster at the highest price points on the menu. Even their potato skins are cross-contaminated because they can't be bothered with a separate fryer. This is not the best choice. I'd rather they just didn't advertise gluten-free than do such a half-assed job.
Fantastic! The gluten free menu had many choices. I had the broccoli cheese soup, the portobello mushroom and asparagus salad, and the GF chocolate Chip Kazookie, and everything was excellent! The staff was friendly and the restaurant was beautiful. The prices were good too.
Awesome place to eat. Great staff and wonderful atmosphere. A nice selections of gluten-free items including a dessert and a cider.
I have Celiac and usually BJ's is a great go to place while traveling but this BJ's lacked in their food quality standards. I get the GF Spicy Pig Pizza with no cheese but had to send it back due to no pizza sauce or bacon and disproportioned ham. Luckily I didn't get sick. Disappointing!
Food is decent and standard. I got the gf pizza which from my experience is one of the better of the chains that have gf pizza. We have BJ's at home. You always need to be specific with the server that you have celiac and need to avoid cross contamination and you should be good
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.
