Terrible, terrible treatment of me as a celiac. Awful. Ordered the steak, baked potato and broccoli cheddar soup. The kitchen then said the soup wasn't actually gluten free, then the manager told me they were wrong, and assured me it was okay because they don't actually make the soup there, it's pre-made and pre-packaged and they just open and heat it up. The manager kept rolling his eyes at me about the questions I asked and, after all of this trouble and drama about what was or was not gluten free, he didn't even apologize or comp anything. We nearly walked out. After all of that, I was also super sick and had to cancel my next day plans. Please, do not support this location with their terrible treatment of celiac customers and horrific food handling.
I was worried because of the other review so I made sure to be diligent when ordering. I'm really sensitive with cross contamination so I was sure to let Ed our waiter know. He said they have a special allergy button they push to make sure it's made correctly to avoid cross contamination. I ordered the cfgf pizza Hawaiian style and a baked potato with chicken, chives, and cheese both to split with my husband. I also ordered wyder's pear cider. I noted that on the gluten free menu the potato does not come with Alfredo sauce which it normally does. I was going to mention that but decided to wait to see how they brought it out. The manager brought out the pizza and stated that it was gluten free. The waiter brought out the potato. I noticed melted cheese but also what looked like Alfredo sauce. My husband who is not celiac nor sensitive thought it was cheese but upon tasting it verified it was Alfredo. I asked the server who apologized profusely saying he thought the potato was only for my husband and did not make it gluten free. He took it and brought another one that was gf. He also brought us a free gluten free Pizookie with vanilla ice cream which was amazing! Besides the error and hostess service (which is why I only gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars) it was a great experience and I didn't get sick at all besides the ate a little too much dairy gas. My brother who is also sensitive to gluten but not as sensitive as me also ate with us. He had a patron margarita, salmon with brown rice (I guess rice pilaf is not GF), & a Pizookie w/ ice cream. He also did not get sick. Overall a great experience, you just need to be diligent as always because no one except you will suffer if you get glutened.
Asked for gluten free, not sure what set me off but it was either the steak or the green beans. I will not likely be back.
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.
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.
This is my favorite place to go when I'm craving a pizza. the crust is thin, they pile on a ton of cheese, and the sauce is delish. I always get bacon for the topping, which is fantastic. Another favorite there is the pizzooki. So far, it's the best gf dresser I've seen at a restaurant!
Had a berry cider and gluten free pizza - the crust was excellent. The staff was knowledgable and friendly.
7-7-15 update. They removed the chicken item from the GF menu. practically nothing GF on menu. WORST. SERVICE. EVER! ....1 hour 45 minute lunch for 1 person. lame. lemon thyme chicken is good. GF Pizooki is yummy. Service is consistently the worst. I seriously get so frustrated by the end of my meal.
Very helpful with a menu that has a list for all allergies. And the gluten free pizookie is so yummy!!
Best gluten free cheese pizza in town. The staff is very cautious when it comes to cross contamination. The first time I ordered the pizza (via over the phone for take out) the guy taking my order, his wife also has celiac and he knew how important it was for there to be no cross contamination. Tonight when I ordered my pizza (over the phone) I mentioned how great of a job they did last time to avoid cross contamination and the man said "I'm the general manager, don't worry your pizza will be perfect!" And it was! (The label on the box said *allergy* *allergy* *allergy* celiac)
Had pizza and cookies and got sick. They printed the gluten info from their website and I thought the other options were sad. Was regular menu items without the sauce.
