About Me


I've never been diagnosed but I have no doubt my body and gluten do not get along. I'm so tired of being an inconvenience to friends and this app helps me find restaurants I can and my husband and friends want to eat at.

    Great Chinese take-out. I tried to order a couple dishes without soy sauce and they were very concerned. Then they told us their soy sauce is gluten-free. I decided to risk it and had no reaction! I'm so happy to have Chinese take-out again!

    I'm corn free as well as gluten free, so my options are even more limited. The chef comes out and talks through the menu with you. (The first chef was amazing, the second time, the chef spoke little English but understood my issues and his ingredients, so it was fine). All of their sauces are GF, so you do have lots of options. If you can eat the corn pasta, you pay the same price as normal eaters for the classic pasta dishes and get to take one home as well. This is the only restaurant I've been to in a long time that I have had no adverse effects after eating. They understand our needs and do a great job of accommodating!

    Great restaurant! Online it appears the only GF option is Pad Thai. But they can make several other dishes with the rice noodles, making them GF. If you ask in the restaurant, they will give you this list. They put the allergen alert on your order ticket and use a fresh wok for my food without me asking. Everyone takes it very seriously.

    We only went for dessert, but we loved it! The plate they bring of dippers was heaping! It was obviously just the fruit and marshmallows, but we got way more food than usually comes on the dessert dippers plate. The waitress was very helpful and informed about my needs. Now if only this place was cheaper....

    The other reviewer is right, this place is overpriced. But we find coupons for them all the time and it is one of my favorites. I go for the salad, as they have tons of fun toppings. Ask for the GF menu, it will be an email they print it with the GF options that month.

    Restaurant itself is falling apart. Literally pieces of the wall are missing. But they do have a gluten free menu with a couple decent gluten free penne dishes. The waitress totally did not understand the whole gluten thing. She thought I couldn't have cheese and without asking, brought the dressing on the side because it had cheese and would not put cheese on my pasta. I was really confused. I would go to Olive Garden again, but not this location.

    This location has GF crust, but the pizza is very unimpressive. I don't think I will be going back, as there are so many better options in the area.

    Although some locations of Beggars have GF pizza crust, this location does NOT. Don't waste your time.

    They have GF pizza crust, but are not nearly as good as the family owned Homewood location. I still give them four stars for being GF friendly, not for the quality of the pizza. Also, they only have one itty bitty GF pizza size.

    My family has ordered this pizza for years and I have really been missing it since I became GF. We called today to find out if they could make me a pizza if I brought in my own GF crust. Turns out they have had GF pizza for over a year! They don't seem to know if any of their ingredients are GF but I'm just excited to have their pizza again!

    Aurelio's has two different size gluten free pizza crusts, L'il and Small. All of their toppings are gluten free. I eat here frequently and have never had an issue. It was my favorite pizza before I was gluten free and still is! Just remember not all of the franchised locations offer the same menu, this one is still owned by the original family.

    This place is a giant salad bar. I happen to love it, but you will need to use your common sense. They label a lot of things for allergens but not everything. When I asked for the GF menu, I was given a printed out email and only a few items were listed. I still enjoy this place

    Got our wedding cake here and loved it! They won't let you sample, we had to buy cupcakes so we could decide which flavor to get. We decided on the salted caramel. It was extremely rich but beautiful for the wedding. I wish they were closer to where I live, I would go all the time! I have been told their products are sold at local Whole Foods locations.

    Another fav. Ask for the GF menu. It will take them a minute to find it, it's always in a different place but they are getting better. I usually get the fajitas or the tacos. Don't forget the Margaritas :)

    Absolutely amazing! We had our wedding reception here and they were super accommodating for both me as the bride and my GF guests. Ask for the GF bread to start and the GF menu. You won't believe how many options they have! Dana's Parm or the fillet mignon are my favorites. Enjoy the GF brownie or chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert. Bonus: their wine is outstanding! I recommend the blueberry :)

    Just discovered this place had a gluten free menu. Amazing! When the hostess seated us, I asked for the GF menu and she happily brought it and gave me some tips. They do have a GF bun for a little more money. It was the best burger I have had in a long time!
