    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.

    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.

    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.

    Food is all prepared in the same areas but the GF pancake breakfast is excellent. Served with strawberries and yogurt that are yummy. Also the salmon with capers is good. They do offer one GF dessert which is nice as well. Only complaint I have is the service. Every time I mention that I have celiac and need GF, I get heavy sighs or they try to up-sell something to me that's not even GF. I enjoy coming here for the pancakes and juke boxes though.

    Although they have several GF items I consider "converted" GF (pancakes, etc.), I have found that they have a poor knowledge of the gluten content of the remainder of the menu. I called the main office and their staff was extremely friendly and able to look up details of various items on the menu. Per the home office, each store manager has access to a "master book" that identifies each item on the menu. Unfortunately, this location could not locate theirs when I visited. I also got the impression that the wait staff had a very poor understanding of gluten. Prior to my diagnosis this was one of my go-to spots, so my rating is with a heavy heart . . .

    words of warning: i was pleasantly surprised and very impressed to see silver diner's new menu which features lots of delicious looking meals, like quinoa pancakes, steak, etc. i had the steak which was very good but my celiac symptoms kicked in afterwards leaving me bed ridden :-) i am very sensitive to gluten. i informed silver diner chef of my recent experience and he said they "cater to gluten intolerant and not celiacs." duh. riding on the gf craze? you've been warned. you decide.
