    We came on a busy Sunday morning for brunch. With the line going outside the door, we only waited 15 min to be seated. Our Waiter "Biscuit Boy" was fabulous. His knowledge of the menu and how to accommodate gluten free was great. They have Udi's bread and buns. I was told that I could make anything that had bread and just substitute. I had gf French toast from the regular menu. My the waiter even asked if I was gluten sensitive or had celiac. He then wrote celiac on the order. We will definitely return

    The food is great here but a true Celiac would need to beware. No separate kitchens. Food is prepared and contamination occurs.

    The food is ok and I didn't get sick so that's a plus. Unfortunately, the service is atrocious. A bottomless beverage means one cup of coffee or one glass of soda unless you are willing to get up and hunt somebody down in order to get a refill. We have been here twice, the first time was in Dec 2015, the second in April 2016, and both times we have had to ask someone to wait on us. We won't be back and I would advise going here only as a last resort.

    They will cook good in its own pan if you ask. They made me the quinoa pancakes during their super busy Sunday breakfast in their own pan. I have celiac and have eaten here several times with no issues. Sometimes the servers don't know, but if you talk to a manager they'll always help.

    I asked about a gluten free menu because prior to sitting hostess didn't know. Looked at menu one thing called out as GF asked my waitress she wasn't much more familiar. I am sensitive to gluten but cross contamination is okay no way I would eat here with my celiac daughter.

    This place was amazing! I've never left a review but for this place I will! I had the coconut french toast with Carmel sauce and it was incredible! My husband had the gf mango stir fry (it's vegan) but he added chicken... it was sweet and spicy; so good! Also they have great service, wine, gf desserts, and great service! We will be going back!

    I've been here twice and have been disappointed both times. They label gluten free options, but have no idea what gluten is. I ordered a burger with a GF bun. They gave me a regular bun and when I asked for a GF bun, they just took the same patty and stuck it on the new bun. They had no idea what condiments were gluten free. I would not recommend.

    This place was amazing! Our waiter Keron was so nice and knowledgeable, I had the paradise french toast, pork. sausage, and the brownie latte milk shake and it was all amazing. I was visiting from Missouri and will make it a point to come back every time I'm in the area. I am writing this a few hours after eating and have not gotten sick. I can't say enough how amazing our experience was!

    I was highly impressed with this diner. We recently were there for the first time and the manager came to speak with us to tell us what the gf options were for breakfast. My daughter opted for the kids gf french toast and loved it. What I liked best about this place is that they offered gf options on the kid menu at a typical kid menu price, which is hard to find. We will definately return.

    This used to be a great place at BWI. It is now being mismanaged. At an airport it now takes over 45 minutes to get breakfast. Cannot review the food, it used to be great, but had to catch a plane before the food could arrive. The manager lied to us about the wait time over 10 minutes. Then announced it would be 30 minutes to get food. Tables were empty the entire time.

    We recently went to the Silver Diner in Dale City. Our daughter has celiac and our son has gluten sensitivity. We explained it to the waiter, asked him to double check that our daughter's spaghetti would be cooked in non-glutened water, etc. When they brought the kids' food, our son's burger was on a regular (non GF) bun, so we went it back. We checked AGAIN that our daughter's spaghetti was GF, and were told it was. Within an hour after eating, our daughter was throwing up. There's no way the spaghetti was GF. When I emailed the restaurant, they didn't respond. Zero stars - I wouldn't trust this location at all. We've had better luck at other Silver Diner locations. This makes me not want to ever go out to eat again.
