    They change staff often and that means some extra kitchen runs for the new wait staff. But run they do. Several good choices that are GF and they do know what can be modified to be safe. Big place and it can be noisy, good or bad depending on your mood.

  • Cheeseburger in Paradise

    13883 Lakeside Cir, Sterling Heights, MI 48313

    Dedicated GF fryer so you can have sweet potato or regular fries without gluten cross contamination. The gluten free menu is old and has missed the last regular menu update yet most all options are still available. Not many with a dedicated frier so that is a treat. The kitchen handles GF requests special.

    2089 W. Big Beaver Rd., Troy, MI 48084-3403

    Agree with other Celiac reviewers that the Chef really cares about all allergens. Excellent food and service as well. A special pleasure to dine here.

    It is all about the server and they way they communicate with the kitchen. Had several great visits but our last was a take out and the server just did not care. Bet she picked off the gluten strips after we complained and my girlfriend got ill.

  • Rojo Mexican Bistro

    401 North Main Street, Rochester, MI 48307

    The server we had on our first visit was celiac savy. Care was used in serving the GF plate separated from the gluten plates at the table. After several visits we rate it 5 stars due to great servers but still be careful.

  • Five Guys

    Fryers only fry Fries, Staff up on glove change for Celiac customers. Watch the peanuts as risk for cross contamination. Fun yet serious staff.

    2031 Bronze Star Drive, Woodland, CA 95776

    As always, it is all about you server and his or her knowledge of the facility. But the menu shows GF buns, burgers wrapped in Lettuce and other GF alternatives.

  • Rojo Mexican Bistro

    5 starsSeptember 07, 2013

    44375 W 12 Mile Rd #147, Novi, MI 48377

    Sever ensured we got the gluten free chips and provided individual salsa bowls to avoid cross contamination with other diners at our table. GF Quesedillis, were great and a rare treat using excellent corn tortillas.

  • Sweet Island Yogurt

    5 starsSeptember 07, 2013

    Sweet Island also does Dairy Free yogurt which helps many Celiac customers. Lots of coupons available. Many toppings in tamper proof no touch dispensers.

  • Rochester Mills Beer Co.

    4 starsApril 05, 2013

    400 Water St, Rochester, MI 48307

    Like everywhere, the server is critical and we have had great servers so far. The server is your communicator with the kitchen, and needs to know the difference with gluten avoiding and celiac customers. Limited menu but no cross contamination so far.

    Inconsistent Celiac knowledge among the Staff but the kitchen did a good job as did the hostess.

  • Ruby Tuesday

    Only with the right server will a Celiac person not have an issue. The kitchen does not 'get it' yet. Until they train more servers we will avoid.

  • Romano's Macaroni Grill

    5 starsNovember 24, 2012

    2111 N Squirrel Rd., Auburn Hills, MI 48326-2351

    This establishment understands Celiac well due to family Celiac history. Never had a problem here and it is our 'go to' place when near Oxford.
