    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.

    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.

    Perhaps breakfast is the best choice. Not sure the griddle is dedicated. I ate there for dinner twice - did not have pancakes. I had trouble afterward.

    Flexitarian menu with gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan options listed on the regular menu. Highly recommended! There is a dedicated toaster for the gluten free Udi's bread at the Waldorf location.

    Fantastic g free choices ... My kids and I each enjoyed our g free pancakes and French toast ... And nitrate free bacon and sausage. It is expensive, but worth it apart from the g free menu because they use locally sourced fresh food.

    Got an omelette and asked to replace the biscuit and toast with gluten free toast and they said that wasn't an issue at all. The food was decent, I felt fine after and they even forgot to charge me the extra dollar for the gluten free toast. I will definitely be back again.

    A small GF option menu. Omelette, salad and burgers without buns. The food was tasty. I read another review about good pancakes....the diner at the airport does NOT have GF pancakes.

    Not a whole lot to choose from. Our school did lots of fundraisers here and we ended up no going because of the limited menu. I can get Vans waffles in the grocery store and I can make much better ones from a box mix at home.

    not a huge selection, but they have a variety of choices. Pancakes, French toast, shrimp and Turkey to name a few. everything I have had there was good. Beverly is very knowledgeable about gluten free. I always try to get her as our waitress. gluten free brownie decadence, for dessert is awesome!

    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.

    There is a small GF section on the menu. Mostly breakfast options: waffles, omelets, steak and eggs. Also veggie chili and turkey chili. There are milkshakes and a brownie sundae. They no longer have GF pasta. The waffles and turkey chili were delicious, but had symptoms afterwards. Maybe the shredded cheese?

    This modern take on the old time diner is a gem. Delicious food, friendly staff, and total awareness and sensitivity to GF. They serve Van's waffles, which are great. However - some normally GF items, like breakfast potatoes, are coated with breading. Make sure to ask!

    We go to the Silver Diner quite often, but their GF menu is rather small. I always get the same thing every time we go, which is the salmon. Would love to see a bigger GF menu, because with the way it is now, there is not a whole lot to choose from.
