Got the gluten free pizza. I am very sensitive and did not get sick. The waitress told us they have dedicated equipment to make the pizzas. Very friendly and knowledgable staff.
Both my daughter and I were very sick at the three hour mark after eating the BBQ chicken salad off the gluten free menu. Spoke beforehand to server and manager about gluten "allergy" and high sensitivity. Didn't matter. Two of us still got really sick.
This is one of my go-to places. There's a smaller selection for gluten-free folks, but it's all good stuff. I particularly like getting the cheddar mashed potatoes/steak or pork chops/veggies. Feels like a good square meal compared to the pizzas. The waiters seem knowledgeable. I've always felt fine after eating here many, many times.
I was so happy to find this place as we were biking and I was starving but the taco places didn't seem safe to me. They have an extensive GF menu and I asked about gluten safety. They assured me they went to great lengths to take precautions. I ordered a Santa Fe salad. The host returned and asked me what kind of dressing I would like since the Santa Fe dressing was not GF. Good sign. I got my food and walked a block to the park. When I opened it I noticed there were tortilla strips on it. The GF menu specifically stated the salad needed to be free of tortilla strips to be GF. So I walked back to the restaurant. They were very apologetic and remade my salad. It was delicious and I ate safely. Bottom line-vigilance is always necessary!
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.
New location-just opened. I was super excited because I love BJs brewhouse and have been to BJs before in other locations. Always a fun atmosphere and your friends and family who are able to drink beer will most certainly enjoy their choices on tap. I have always had delicious meals at BJs (before and after going g-free). Since going g-free I have never had any issues at any BJs and have had a variety of meals. Consistency is the key with a chain restaurant, especially with food allergies and celiac- BJs takes that seriously-it was evident as I watched them training the Nanuet staff opening weekend. Good g-free menu, could be bigger, but nice choices. LOVE their berry burst cider. Always have. They also have a g-free beer which I haven't tried yet. Pizza is super thin crust and fantastic-my sister who is not g-free loved my pizza as well. Their menu is clear and the wait staff is very aware of food allergies in general. Only gave it a four because they don't have g-free buns for their burgers, nor do they have a dedicated fryer. Otherwise it'd get a 5 plus. In all honesty I've never had anything other than their pizza and salads even before going g-free because those were so delicious. Go! You won't be disappointed!
Pretty extensive gf menu with all the extra options like pizza toppings well labeled for additional allergies. Went on a Friday night around 6 and it was pretty packed. My food was great (baked potato with chicken, broccoli, and cheese) but the rest of the group was evenly split between finding their food disappointing (burger and chicken fried steak) and enjoyable (pizza).
The pros are that they have an allergen chart and a (small) gluten free menu. However, I find that the cons are much greater. Even the gf menu comes with limitations and substitution suggestions. It's not very inclusive of Celiacs like myself. I ordered a wedge salad. It was nothing special. Overall I was not pleased, and would not come here again by choice.
If you are worried about things like cross contamination, you really need to stay away from this place. The gluten free food tastes delicious, but the servers are barely knowledgeable. Tonight was the last straw. I had one guy (not my server) bring me a pizookie, and when I questioned him he swore it was gluten free. Then I asked him since when do gluten free pizookies not have chocolate in them, since this was a peanut butter cookie, and he took it back and brought me an under baked actual GF pizookie. I've had too many near misses from this place in the past. I cannot afford servers who don't even know what they are bringing me. I'm done with this place, and if your concern is low tolerance for gluten, you should be too.
Although I was brought a NON gluten free plate. I made our waiter aware of this, he was very apologetic. Took it back to the kitchen and I was made a new plate. It was AMAZING!!! Delish!!!!!!! I had the balsamic glazed chicken from the gluten free menu!!!!! I will be going back!!
My expectations after I read all this amazing reviews here have been so high, but the Pizza was really disappointing. The dough tasted exactly like the frozen GF Pizza you can get in Traders Joes, but the tomato sauce tasted really strange. For this stuff I don't have to pay that much. What I really appreciate is that they have a hugh list with so many allergens, that helps a lot.
Amazing! I love their pizza and have never had a reaction from it (I'm pretty sensitive so that's saying a lot). Ate here today and the kitchen manager came out to rep over the menu with me, take my order, and personally made my GF pizza! I love their pizza so much that I got a second one Togo!
