About Me

Severe gluten intolerant living in Boise.


  • Village Haus Restaurant

    4 starsJune 22, 2015

    1313 Harbor Blvd, Disneyland Park, Anaheim, CA 92802

    Enjoyed a delicious gf pastrami bacon cheese burger. The Chef was very polite and accomodating. I had no issues and would eat here again.

  • Carnation Cafe

    5 starsJune 22, 2015

    Disneyland Park, Disneyland Dr, Anaheim, CA 92802

    I ate two meals here (breakfast and lunch). Both were delicious and I had no reactions. The chef and both servers were very helpful and kind. Made for a great experience.

  • Wine Country Trattoria

    1 starsJune 22, 2015

    Disney California Adventure Park, 1313 Disneyland Dr, Anaheim, CA 92802

    I ate at Wine Country Trattoria in the Califor ia Adventure Park on June 20. I ordered the arugala salad, baked chicken with alfredo pasta (I chose the gf penne), and a gluten free brownie for dessert from the gluten free menu. After 3 fun days in Disneyland and California Adventure I am sorry to say that I had a gluten exposure during my meal here. Within 30 minutes I had cramping and discomfort and my last night of fun quickly turned into a stressful and embarassing experience. I can only say good things about my experience elsewhere in the iarks (Carnation Cafe, Hungry Bear, Jolly Holiday Cafe) but I would no recommend dining here.

  • Louie's Pizza & Italian Restaurant

    3 starsFebruary 18, 2014

    2500 E Fairview Ave, Meridian, ID 83642

    I really appreciate that Louie's makes their own gf pizza crust in house. Most places offer a frozen disc of cardboard. Our pizza to go was pretty good, although the crust was a little chalky texture wise. We might try the a pasta dish next time.

  • Crescent No Lawyers Bar-Grill

    1 starsFebruary 17, 2014

    5500 West Franklin Road, Boise, ID 83705

    Staff was not knowledgeable about gf options on the menu and lazy during our visit. Waiter told us they can't cook fries in clean oil (see Kathy's review). Food (in general, not even including gf bun) was mediocre at best. Don't waste your money.

  • Bier:Thirty Bottle & Bistro

    2 starsJuly 08, 2013

    3073 South Bown Way, Boise, ID 83706

    Nice selection of ciders. Gluten free beer is Omission. Some gf options on menu but no designated cooking space in the kitchen.

  • Roosters Brewing Company & Restaurant

    1 starsJune 01, 2013

    253 25th St, Ogden, UT 84401

    Traveling thru town and needed a place to eat. I read the previous reviews and decided to try Roosters for dinner. I asked for the gluten free menu, but after asking a few questions soon realized that not all items listed on the gluten free menu are actually gluten free. For example, fish tacos: corn tortillas are dipped in fryer oil and pan fried. This is the same oil used for gluten food items. I had plain garden salad and was okay, but I wouldn't recommend eating here if you are celiac or gluten intolerant. Too risky IMO.

  • Godfather's Pizza

    4 starsMay 28, 2013

    5300 W. 17TH, TOPEKA, KS 66604

    I am in Topeka visiting family this week. I was very pleased with the gf pizza I ordered from Godfathers Pizza. I spoke with a staff member on the phone who explained that the gf pizzas are premise in a different gf facility. To cook the pizza in the store they use designated pans and pizza cutters. You can also bake your pizza at home. Pizza was good, I liked the crust better than other gf pizzas.

  • MickeyRay's BBQ

    4 starsMay 15, 2013

    980 North Milwaukee Street, Boise, ID 83704

    I am very happy to be able to give a positive review for MickeyRays. Not only is this a local business, but it is a great gluten free BBQ option. I am always anxious to try new places, but I was very happy with the service as well as the options available. The brisket and chopped pork were AMAZING. For sides I had MickeyRays beans and the cucumber salad. Next time I will try the turnip greens and coleslaw. I will eat here again (and again). My server was knowledgeable about gluten (he told me they don't have a dedicated fryer before I had a chance to ask).

  • Ling & Louie's

    1 starsMarch 15, 2013

    3210 E Louise Dr, Meridian, ID 83642

    I ordered off the gf menu but I'm pretty sure I had a reaction 30 min after eating there. I won't risk eating there again.

  • McGrath's Fish House

  • Garbonzo's Pizza

    5 starsSeptember 03, 2012

    10497 Lake Hazel Rd, Boise, ID 83709

    I called the Five Mile/Lake Hazel store and spoke with the owner/manager. He explained the prep process for the gluten free pizza and what ingredients are availble for gf. He explained he has family members who are celiac and has researched ingredients and taken what precautions are possible. I ordered 2 10 inch gf pizzas which came in their own tin pan and I had no problems. I can't speak for other Garbonzo stores in the treasure valley, but I would feel comfortable ordering from Garbonzos on Five Mile and Lake Hazel again if I reviewed the prep process with the staff at the store at that time.

  • My Fit Foods

    Ready made fresh gluten free meals available for carryout. Excellent "fast food" option. Additional stores planned for Boise.

  • PizzalChik

    4 starsAugust 28, 2012

    7330 W State St, Boise, ID 83714

    A great gf option. I spoke with the owner who took the time to explain that everything is made in house, including sauces, dressings, etc. I was impressed by his knowledge and genuine concern. I had the chicken salad which was amazing. I forgot to ask about gf pizza and any precautions taken to avoid cross contamination but I will next time.

  • Red Robin

    5 starsAugust 15, 2012

    267 N. Milwaukee, Boise, ID 83704

    A relief to find staff are well informed about gluten intolerance and celiac. I was impressed with the manager who prepared and delivered my meal to the table.
