    Taco Salad was good. Baked chips are just ok. GF menu. I noted celiac friendly however, be sure wait staff understands you have celiac and care is requested for your food preparation.

    Most staff are knowledgeable about celiac. If you have celiac tell server. They will make sure the kitchen knows. I am very sensitive and have never been sick after eating here. If you have concerns, talk with manager before ordering.

    Always great. Ask server to change their gloves and to walk your order down to the register with no one else touching your order. everything is gluten free except for flour tortilla and tortillas warmer. I like the rice bowl with everything on it - I love the chicken. Beware, the chips are addictive- they are so good

  • Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse

    3 starsMarch 07, 2014

    915 Branson Landing Blvd, Branson, MO 65616

    Take care if you have celiac as my impression is they are not very interested in helping folks with celiac. We went with friends and I choose were we go because my friends insist I eat too. Unfortunately I was sick. TLCS has a plainly written disclaimer. I will not go back. The service was great and if you are not celiac and not sensitive this place may be OK.

    Happy. Happy. Great tamales. Went in at 2pm in off hour and the place was busy. I had a lot of questions so I wasn't quick to order. Ask for a menu as it denotes items with non gf flour. All tamales are gf.

    315 Us Route 1, Kittery, ME 03904

    Great place. If you have celiac do not have anything deep fried. When ordering let them know you have celiac and need food preparers change their gloves before preparing your food. Also they must not toast or grill the gf bun.They have gf buns. I like the lobster roll.

    31 U.S. 1, Freeport, ME 04032

    Very busy place. The toaster is not dedicated. Watched kitchen staff. Chance of cross contamination but they were reasonably careful. Celiacs can eat here with care. Tell server you have celiac and ask for allergy alert on order ti kitchen.

    Several selections for GF. My salad came with bread - not GF. When I mentioned this to server she quickly fixed it by removing the bread. When I asked about it she was nasty and said "well what do you want me to do". Very nicely I asked for a new salad which I got. I hope.

    13307 NE Hwy 99 #101, Vancouver, WA 98686

    Silly me. I cried when I ate here the first time - so happy. I love sushi and thought it was off my list forever. Eaten here twice with no problem. I am very sensitive. The staff does not speak English very well but I ask for the gluten free Tamari soy sauce. The wasabi, smoked salmon, white rice, seaweed salad, shrimp and cream cheese are all gf. Cross contamination can be an issue. Next time I go, I will take the Japanese language gluten free instructions from Triumph Dining.
