I have been living with Celiac Sprue since 2007 and cross contamination is a major problem for me.
214 Fairview St, Houston, TX 77006
Authentic Mexico City bistro that has a lot of naturally gluten free items that are prepared fresh daily. My suggestion would be to introduce yourself and mention your dietary restriction to the owner Ana or her manager, this is what we did and she made sure everything was handled correctly. They also offer a Sunday brunch with corn pancakes that we are looking forward to trying.
420 West Market Street, San Antonio, Texas
Our visit to the city included two meals eaten at this restaurant. Dinner and then breakfast. Dinner was busy and the meal which was a pasta dish that tasted fine. They had gluten free bread but it was only sliced sandwich bread as opposed rolls. We decided to give breakfast a try and was looking forward to French Toast, but after talking to our waiter and learning they cook it on the same griddle that also cooks the gluten products I decided against it and went with the egg white omelet. Our server was great after learning I could eat anything off a shared surface and made the kitchen redo my dish's vegetables because at first it was on the griddle. I didn't get sick, so that's good news and the reason why I didn't give them 5 stars is because there is a risk for those with celiac. If I come back we will more than likely dine here again but not without talking to everyone before hand!

I am not Vegan, but Celiac, and I have to say this was an overall awesome experience! Our server was extremely friendly and she took the time to explain everything, and I mean everything! The dishes were loaded with flavor and even better yet all the ingredients were natural and organic. They also do not use Soy or Tofu which is a another big plus in my book. The strawberry and kiwi cheesecake was great and they even make their own almond milk, where most places would probably just pour the store brands with ingredients most cannot pronounce. We will be back whenever we are in town.
4520 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
100% gluten free restaurant! Need I say more? But I will, same exact menu as their original location and same level if friendly staff. As always we will be back!!
3610 Avenue B, San Antonio, TX 78209
Wonderful dedicated GF business!! It's wonderful to be able to walk into a restaurant and order anything!! We had the Pot Pie and Personal Pizza, the food overall was good, the pizza reminded me of Pizza Hut.... Crispy and a little greasy. But when you have celiac, eating any pizza outside that of a frozen tasteless one is a welcomed pleasure. When visit San Antonio we will definitely return!!
400 W Parkwood Ave #112, Friendswood, TX 77546
Nice selection of Gluten Free sandwiches and soups.
11302 Broadway Suite #102, Pearland, TX 77584
Always reliable, but like all Pei Wei locations not a lot of options.
5535 Memorial Dr, Houston, TX 77007
Prepared meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The majority of the meals are now gluten free, but to be sure you're getting the right meal there's always someone there to help. Friendly staff and they have microwaves and a seating for the meal on the go. It took awhile to try them because of some of the reviews, but now that I did, I'm very happy I did.
748 East 11th Street, Houston, TX 77008
Just had one of the best dinners out since moving to Houston! The dinner specials at this location are fantastic!
2311 West Alabama Street, Houston, TX 77098
(UPDATE) I've eaten here almost once a week since moving here and I have to sadly say my last three visits have gotten me sick. Hopefully they can get this sorted out! Great experience and wonderfully prepared dishes. The meal came out with Gluten Free cards to reassure they received order correctly. We will be going back for sure, but like mentioned earlier we will not be having the pizza for the risk of cross contamination... But no worries they have plenty of other dishes to choose from.
350 W 19th St, Houston, TX 77008
It REALY, REALLY, REALLY (did I say really) saddens me to write this review, this place is very cool, the staff durning my visit was extremely friendly and the food tasted wonderful.... BUT, if you have Celiac with sensitivity to cross contamination then Torchy's isn't for you unfortunately. It's really sad that there are so few places such as this business that cannot provide safe options for people with Celiac without causing serious negative health side effects. If you're gluten free because of a lifestyle choice then this is a wonderful option. Sorry for the negative review, I was truly hopeful.
214 Fairview St #2, Houston, TX 77006
Those with Celiac, I have two words for you....FRIED CHICKEN!!!!!They had a nice selection of gluten free food and the server even brought out freshly made gluten free donuts! I never eat fried food at restaurants for the simple reason of cross contamination, but this business has a dedicated space along with a dedicated fryer!!The server also told me the reason they're so careful is that the owner cannot eat gluten either. Whether the owner has Celiac or not they are taking the correct steps in order to prevent cross contamination. We will be back!!
4000 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007
I was told gluten free was not a problem, but their idea of gluten free us not putting pita bread on the dish. But after I ate the meal I realized I shouldn't of had the rice which turn out to be pilaf!! The gluten free dish should have come with a bean side dish after reviewing their on-line menu. My wife also ordered a gluten free so that we could share, but there was a pasta noodle in it. I am suck as I type this review. If you have celiac stay away from this chain!!
3600 Kirby Dr, Houston, TX 77098
This location had all the same selections of food as the others and they also can make fresh personalized salads. I would have given them 5 stares but the past couple of times I've been at this location there has been pita chips and crumbs around the section they are stored. It is really too bad since these pita chips are the only items that contain gluten. It would be nice if they were stored and served away from the naturally gluten free items.
528 W. Bay Area Blvd., Webster , Texas 77598
Sorry, but I walked in and then I walked out after watching the serving spoons making contact with the flour shells ahead of me. After reading some of the latest reviews it looks like I made the correct decision. This is really too bad, there's such limited choices, if at all, for people with celiac while we're away from home.
1014 Wirt Rd, Houston, TX 77055
English Muffins, Cream Puffs and Key Lime Pie are simply fantastic!!! You cannot go wrong with any of their products.
5710 Memorial Dr, Houston, TX 77007
Great selections, breakfast, lunch and dinner with 99.99% of their choices being gluten free. The extremely friendly staff told me they will be going completely Gluten Free very soon. The concept is also unique, either bring home the meal or heat it up and enjoy it right then and there. They will now be added to safe stops when I am out running around away from home.
516 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX 77006
What a wonderful dining experience! Learned about this business from a local blog about Celiac friendly restaurants in the Houston area so we decided to give it a try. After speaking with Eliana, the manager I instantly felt like I was in good hands! They brought out a thin cracker and right away I started saying I cannot have any gluten and TO MY SURPRISE these crackers were gluten free!!! It's been 7 years since I've been able to have a starch before and durning a meal outside of our home! The soup, salad and main course was simply fantastic!! They flavors and spices of our dishes were perfect and with a wonderful atmosphere our visit was a wonderful experience. We will be back!!
3111 S Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77098
Finding Jenni's Noodle House was a great way to ring in the new year! This business gets it!! Wonderful food and very friendly staff, this is a must if you have to eat Gluten Free.
2027 Post Oak Blvd, Houston, TX 77056
Finding Jenni's Noodle House was a great way to ring in the new year! This business gets it!! Wonderful food and very friendly staff, this is a must if you have to eat Gluten Free.
3029 Kirby Drive, Houston, TX 77098
Great dining experience and consistent quality and customer service we have come to know while dining at other Brio locations! We will be returning!
2027 S. Shepherd Rd., Houston, TX 77019
I just cannot understand how a great chain like Chipotle can offer completely different experiences based on region. St. Louis gets it! Houston does not!! This location was my second attempt to eat Chipotle in our new city of Houston, the first location changed their gloves but then began handling a floor tortilla and when I said I wanted a "naked burrito bowl" I was told they don't have them! I said I'll come back another time. Then I gave this location a try because if the previous reviews. I told them I needed to eat gluten free and they looked at me like it was the first time they heard of gluten. When we got to the cheese and lettuce I asked if they had fresh batches below because of the gloves with flour reaching into it. They said it was fresh today and it was all they had, even after I said I cannot have anything that touched flour, so I went without cheese and lettuce. Then the topper, they comped the meal when I got to register, they thought I was asking for a "FREE" meal! Thank you for the free meal but I really enjoy paying for my gluten free meals that are prepared properly! Please Houston and Chipotle please offer people who don't have a choice reliable gluten free meals and options!
4094 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX 77027
Old reliable once again! It's nice to be able to walk into a P.F. Chang's whether in MO, FL or TX and know you're getting the same quality food without the fear of the staff or kitchen not understanding the needs of someone who has to be GF. They were extremely busy but they didn't skip a beat!
2520 Montrose Boulevard, Houston, TX 77006
We tried this restaurant for the first time and they were extremely busy. Not the most idea time for someone with Celiac. The cashier understood my needs and we actually spoke for a minute about having to eat GF. But there was a breakdown after the cashier and my order came out with pita bread sitting in the middle of the dish. They refunded my meal, but halfway through watching my wife eat her dish the cashier came to our table with a fresh meal and said sorry. This was an extremely nice gesture and I didn't get sick, but I don't know just how quickly I will be returning.
2900 Travis Street, Houston, TX 77006
Very nice dining experience! As mentioned earlier, they provide GF Soy Sauce and as a bonus they will make any roll less the items that contain sauces or ingredients that we cannot have. We will be going back!!
2019 Post Oak Blvd, Houston, TX 77056-4401
Sadly we had to give this location a one because of unfortunately being gluten'd. We have dined at another Maggiano's dozens of times with no incident and like mentioned below the chef would always come to our table. Here we had to ask and it didn't seem this is what they did, right off the bat I became nervous and sure enough I was feeling sick before we left to go home. We are new to Houston and sadly this location is a one and done for us. If you're Celiac I wouldn't recommend this location, sorry.
3136 Routh St, Dallas, TX 75201
Wonderful experience, I have not had fried chicken since 2007 and it was wonderful!! We enjoyed it so much we had breakfast there the following morning!! GF bagel!! Wonderful cake!! And most importantly they had "attention Celiac" listed twice on the order receipt!! Outdoor dinning and they're even pet friendly!! In Dallas this is a must.
2418 East Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
Friendly staff and like all P.F. Chang's a nice selection of gluten free dishes. This location also has a "seasonal" menu item as well.
1637 Southeast 17th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
I have only dined at four 'dedicated gluten free' restaurants and all of them were wonderful, but, Fresh First stands out amongst all if them and most regular restaurants as well. The quality of their gluten free food and extensive selection is OUTSTANDING! It's nice to walk into and establishment having the ability to order anything! Their food is local and organic, their desserts are fabulous and the ownership is extremely pleasant. 5 stars and a must visit while in Southern Florida. We can only hope other restaurants follow suit across the country!
1321 East Commercial Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33334
Wonderful sandwich and fantastic Key Lime dessert!!! The owner is very friendly and did a great job with providing a gluten free meal! I will be back again!!
15941 Manchester Road, Ellisville, MO 63011
Awesome experience and it was the first time I was able to eat Thai since getting diagnosed!!! Diana was VERY knowledgable and most importantly genuinely concerned about my dietary restriction and in fact I don't know who was more excited about me being able to enjoy some of my old favorites again. The food was wonderful and we will be going back again! If you're in the area and want some Curry you must stop in, Diana will take great care of you! She also did mention the next time they print menus they will highlight their gluten free items, which is most of their menu.
1381 High Street #111, Washington, MO 63090
They have a nice selection of sandwiches which all can be prepared with gluten free bread that they bake. They also offer breakfast which I have not tried yet.
1713 Summit St, Kansas City, MO 64108
Delightful experience. The staff was very attentive and took the time to clean the cooking surface. It is wonderful to see businesses like this one providing gluten free meals for people who don't have a choice. We will be back!
435 Westport Rd, Kansas City, MO 64111
Don't let the name scare you! Wonderful GF menu with great tasting food that caused zero issues. The staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable which made for a great dining experience all around.
16806 Chesterfield Airport Road, Chesterfield, MO 63005
At a last minute lunch gathering I called ahead to check to see if they offered gluten free. They positively assured me they could and when we showed up the chef knew I was coming. Wonderfully prepared lunch, 5 stars all around! They did tell me that it helps if call ahead so they could inform the chef and prepare. I will be back!
20 Allen Avenue #130, Webster Groves, MO 63119
There is NOT a 'gluten free menu' and there is NOT a 'dedicated fryer' at this restaurant. Chips are NOT gluten free since they don't have a decided fryer and it is very difficult to enjoy Mexican without chips and salsa when everyone around you is enjoying them. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and there are options on the menu but they have to be explained and pointed out. The food was well prepared. I would have given more stars if the listing wasn't misleading and if they were more GF friendly compared to other truly GF friendly dinning locations.
8885 Ladue Road Suite 1, Ladue, MO 63124
Eat here often! Never had a problem with cross contamination.
15824 Fountains Plaza Dr., Chesterfield, MO 63017
Great gluten free fries!! Great gluten free appetizers!! Great place to watch a football game!! I would have given them 5 stars but I believe I was affected by cross contamination while having their nachos once. We have been back and haven't had further issues, but with this being said I haven't had their nachos.
2961 Dougherty Ferry Road #101, St. Louis, MO 63122
Simply a fantastic dinner!!
1104 Locust St, St Louis, MO 63101
WOW!!! It was so very nice to have brunch away from home. They were extremely busy when we showed up, we almost left since quite/off hours seem to be better times to eat gluten free. Luckily we stayed and had a wonderful experience! With Celiac I didn't get sick and we will be back!!
2900 Missouri Ave, St Louis, MO 63118
Simply fantastic food. Dishes and flavors that were so unique, made eating out very exciting again for someone with Celiac. While almost all the dishes are naturally gluten free (as MOST meals should be) it was a little unsettling when we spoke to the owner and server about Celiac and the risks of cross contamination, their overall knowledge wasn't as strong as we had hoped for. Good news is I didn't get sick, I believe if more people with this disease speaks to the owner and management they will learn much more about it. We will be returning to this little gem of a restaurant!!!
24345 State Route Ww, Saline, MO 63670
Stumbled across this fantastic restaurant that offered many naturally GF dishes. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable which is important for those of us with Celiac. I highly recommend dinning here if you're in the area. The ambiance alone is worth it!!! We will be back!!
2235 S Neil St, Champaign, IL 61820
While in Champaign for work at the last minute I learned there was a Biaggi's and was relieved. This location like the other one in Jackson, MS was wonderful. Knowledgeable and friendly staff that provided a quality and safe GF meal for someone with celiac away from home!!!
970 Highland Colony Pkwy, Ridgeland, MS 39157
Wonderful dinning experience durning a long road trip! With celiac disease I just cannot exit an interstate and eat anywhere. During a long road trip my wife learned Biaggi's and we decided to give it a try. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The food was fantastic and so was the fresh bread! If I am very in a city that has this restaurant I am going without thinking twice.
1136 Tamm Ave., St Louis, MO 63139
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Great GF sandwiches that are BIG and loaded with substance! Friendly staff, fantastic options and with the exception of one or two items everything on the menu is safe!! It's wonderful to have yet another safe dinning option.
17245 Chesterfield Airport Road, Chesterfield, MO
Confused, there is a big disclaimer on their menu that states if you have Celiac you shouldn't eat here since they cannot control cross contamination. I work right down the road but I will not eat here. If you have Celiac this is not the place for us according to their warning.
1676 Clarkson Rd., Chesterfield, MO 63017
I've had good experiences at this location. They are very much aware of celiac and do all they can to help accommodate so that I can enjoy a meal away from home.
1601 South Lindbergh Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63131
Limited but delicious gluten free menu! Picked up dinner to go a few times without any issues! Staff is very knowledgeable and pleasant.
2017 Chouteau Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63103
Biggest gluten free menu I have ever seen next to 100% GF restaurant!! Wonderful dinning experience that made me feel like a human again that could enjoy a night out at a 5 star restaurant!!
5257 Shaw Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63110
Wonderful place to eat if you have Celiac. Knowledgable staff, friendly staff and fantastic food!! We eat here all the time and highly recommend this restaurant.
15836 Manchester, Ellisville, MO 63011
Wonderful staff and great food. I have eaten here an haven't had a problem with cross contamination. I wish more restaurants treated gluten free the way Chipotle does!!
15622 Manchester Rd, Ellisville, MO 63021
It is wonderful to be able to walk in to a restaurant on the go and order ANYTHING off the menu!!! Get place to eat and wonderful baked goods!
#2 The Boulevard Saint Louis, Richmond Heights, MO 63117-1122
Wonderful restaurant! Staff is fully aware of celiac disease and the chef comes to your table to discuss you meal that they will personally prepare.
9643 Manchester Rd, St Louis, MO 63119
Last time eating here I got sick due to cross contamination. I actually asked them to make me another dish since the first one had my wife's flour shell laying over my dish. It has great potential but if cross contamination is not understood than unfortunately customers like me cannot dine here.
