Just plain awesome. Thank you, Joe! Not only was the food fresh and fabulous, the guys were great and gave me lots of other ideas for places to go. Can't recommend it enough. 2/2015: I dined here again this year, and it seems to maybe have changed ownership?? They now at least share the space with a Mediterranean food place and the Mediterranean guys working there that night had no idea what a gluten already was and tried to convince me that the wheat couscous was something I could eat. I stuck with what I've gotten the past few times I have eaten there and didn't feel great afterwards. Sad face. Maybe Joe was just on vacation??
it may be set in a las vegas strip mall, but lazy Joe's serves up nevada's best options for gluten-free seafood eats. everything from coconut shrimp to fried bay scallops to fried oysters are made to order in a special gluten-free breading and served with fries, coleslaw and a hush puppy.
This review (3/2015) is in follow up to my original review. While the food was as always gluten free, I have a few gripes. One issue is the fish falls apart before you can even dip it in the tartar sauce. Another is that the food is extremely greasy. I have a stomach ache now... The kind I get from greasy foods. I don't remember if I had this issue before but at that time I ate a lot of greasy foods.. Since then I've been eating healthier and now this has occurred. Bummer.
Wow! This place is amazingly delicious! And Gluten Free! We had the onion rings, scallops, oysters, and clams! Hand cut fries and homemade coleslaw. Clams were our favorite. All the sauces are made in house too! They are very aware of GF, separate fryers and all. If you're looking to be a bit naughty and eat some long awaited GF fried seafood- this is your place! Very tasty- they even have a GF Blooming Onion. Check out their menu. Nice and fresh seafood- not bits n pieces in batter. Super friendly staff too!!
Great service and yummy food!
The first time I ate here I was very, very cautious, but after speaking with the owner and how he took the time to explain his research and training on Celiac and gluten I thought I would give it a try and boy I was NOT disappointed one bit! It was fabulous and I did not get ill at all...now fast forward to this most recent trip...still delicious and my sister-in-law and her hubby loved it and said it didn't even taste gluten free! Homerun! I'm so glad we don't have this place by my house or I would be 800 pounds! Thank you Lazy Joe's Fish & Chips for making this Celiac very, very, very happy again! Tears rolling down my cheeks with joy! GlutenFreeWoman.com
We are in Las Vegas on a family vacation. Having two children with celiac disease,most of our vacations are in a hotel or condo with a kitchen so I can cook for the boys. Before we arrived I did some research and found lazy joes. I knew we would be safe since there is no gluten in the friers. Home run!!!! Amazing! The kids haven't had onion rings or mozzarella sticks in 6 years. The fry was light and not greasy. The owner and the staff were so knowledgeable and so helpful. We have a new Vegas favorite! And, my husband who can eat gluten loves to indulge in fish and chips. He loved lazy joes fish and chips. It was gluten deprivation, it was plain delicious. Good times.
Awesome. Knowledgable and friendly. I stuffed myself so full of fried goodness.
Gluten Free Fish and Chips! I am gluten free and found out all but 4 things are gluten free. Great food. Ate mozzarella sticks, onion rings, mushrooms, and chicken fingers.
Very good food, except I wish fries were better, a little flimsy. Another reason why it doesn't get top rating, aside from the owner who is very pleasant, everyone else has a dry demeanor. Unwelcoming when you arrived. Beware, the menu is big a seems unorganized, and they are no help in guiding you through or suggesting an item, instead both times I've been there, I guess I didn't order fast enough because they told me to take the menu and go sit down and when I'm ready to come back in order. Personally with that attitude I wanted to walk right out if there.
fantastic fried food! we had the appetizer sampler with onion rings, zucchini, mushrooms and cheese sticks. next time I would just get the onion rings and cheese sticks. I also had the shrimp and clams with fries and Cole slaw. my husband had the catfish and shrimp. it was a great place with friendly service. the cab fare was $30 from the strip.
absolutely awesome! Delicious.
Great place for GF fried foods. Store smells heavily of oil but food is good for take out.
Amazing! The best cod I have ever had, even before I was Celiacs! Great people and great food. Best part: no reaction! I will definitely be going back :) Make sure to look at the daily specials! If you happen to make an order exactly like the daily special but don't mention the "special" of the day, it will cost you more $$ and the owner is snarky and thinks it's funny that he got over on you. And he'll let you know it! Not a very good business practice
I was soooooo excited to eat fish & chips after reading the reviews that this was my first stop after i arrived from the airport. I asked my bellman about how much a cab would be from The Venetian - he said it would be $12-$15 each way - he said that is probably more than your meal there..... Well he was right that the cab was more than my meal- waaaaaaaayyyy more!! My cab was $35 EACH WAY!!! But as i share that so others can plan their budgets - for me it was still SOOOOOOOOO WORTH IT!!!! I ordered the appetizer plate & ate friend mozzarella cheese sticks for the first time in 9 years!!!! I had friend zucchini- onion rings- And then i had the most delicious cod & Halibut!! Its painful to write this review back in Colorado because now that I've found this place it will be soooo missed! They sell their GF flour blend & ship it... so ill do my best to re-create this meal--- but I would drive there tonight if i lived in Vegas!!! Thankfully i have a very supportive & understanding husband who was working at his conference when i went - & wasn't freaked out by $70 in transportation to get here- certainly a splurge cab ride from the strip- but still totally worth it!!!
The customer service/knowledge was fantastic! The place was clean and I can't wait to eat here again! Gluten free fried calamari and clam strips!? Gluten free fried cheese sticks and!? Everything I have been craving for years in one place!
AMAZING food and no icky after effects! Will be back for sure!!!
So many items that I haven't been able to enjoy in 6 years of GF! Very friendly and very knowledgable staff! Wish I could convince Joe to move to California!
Awesome food! Haven't had fried anything that is GF since before I was diagnosed. Owner very knowledgeable about celiac and GF. Hush puppies are not GF and are fried in separate oil. Had mozz sticks, onion rings, fried haddock, and fried shrimp. Delicious!
very clean, delicious, and great customer service. laid back family atmosphere along with great prices!! All the breaded items are gf!! does not cause any allergies or sickness. We will be frequenting here!!
Awesome. Lots and lots of choices. I haven't had "fish and chips" in so many years!!!!
Wow! This place is amazing! Great food and more gluten free options than I ever imagined! Even if you aren't gluten free its incredible! We had a great experience and got to visit with the owner. He is super cool and knowledgable. You don't find many places like this or many people like him very often anymore! His family has been doing gluten free since before anyone knew what it was! I believe he said since the 1930s in Massachusetts! You won't regret eating here! I can't wait to go back!
Yes. Eat here. Delicious food. Pretty much everything is gluten free. There were items I haven't had since my Celiac diagnosis in 2009. Highly recommend you eat here.
If your gluten free GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!! corn flour used in batter . This is best I had yet!
This place was wonderful. From the food to the personnel that work there, it was an outstanding experience all around. We traveled from Southern California and was in search of a good GF restaurant and the reviews pointed us to this restaurant. I can be a pain to get there, but it is worth the time it takes to get there. About 95% of the menu is GF and the taste is beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that is GF. A Vegas diamond in the rough.
This place is so good! I have had the chicken strips, fish, and motz sticks all of which are yummy. This place is a must visit spot for anyone looking for good gluten free food!
Fried mozzarella, zucchini, mushrooms, onion rings, chicken fingers, cod, shrimp, coconut shrimp, cat fish, lobster, clams, blooming onion, coleslaw! Everything breaded is gluten free except the hush puppies, bread & clam chowder. Hush puppies fried in different fryer. yum!
I've missed real fried food since going gluten free. This place was amazing. The owner was very knowledgeable, and was totally willing to help. He even sells the mix for his breading and shares advice about cooking at home. Didn't get sick and got to have coconut shrimp I haven't had since going gf. Really loved the zucchini fries. Totally made my day.
This place was a treasure to find! All the breading is gluten free. They don't even have wheat flour in the restaurant. The owner was so nice and helpful. He even made mine dairy free too. I had the flowering onion and the breaded chicken strips. It was so delicious! You'd never know it was gluten free. I definitely plan to go there again when we are in Vegas.
This is the most wonderful place!! We have been here two years in a row on our trips to Vegas and we have had almost everything on the menu and it is all AMAZING! The shrimp, mushrooms and bloomin onion are our faves and the homemade onion sauce, tarter sauce and cocktail sauce are awesome! The owner and employees are all soo nice also! A MUST for gluten-free folks and even for anyone looking for delicious fried food! Thanks Lazy Joes!
Excellent food, well worth the drove from the strip. Mozzarella sticks there made my vacation. Owner was there and super nice.
excellent gluten free fried food. i especially loved the mozzarella sticks!
AMAZING!!!! Being allergic to gluten I have not had fried goodies is a long time. The food was SO good. Employees were very knowledgable and got to meet the owner. About a $20 cab ride from the strip ... HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! And worth the trip. You can buy the corn flower to make your own stuff at home. Defiantly a customer for life!!!
Well worth the drive off the strip. There are very few GF fish & chips places. I loved the onion rings, sweet potato fries, soft shell crab, catfish & haddock. Fried soft shell crab is rare & this was great! This was my first time being able to eat onion rings. So fun to have foods that have been off limits.
A hidden gem!!! I (gluten-free) went with 4 (gluten eating) others and we all loved it. Service was impeccable- friendly, genuine, and quck! The food was amazing!!! Being gluten free, I hadn't had a mozzarella stick in years- just as good, or better, than I remember :) It was also very well priced- $6-$10 with a $5 lunch special. My only complaint: we were the only people enjoying this ma and pop restaurant. If only more people knew about this little gem!!
oh my what a selection of gluten free fried items. all batter used is gf. friend soft shell crbas chicken fingers and onion rings were great!! highly recommended.
