I thought I would check them out, but they didn't understand what I meant when I asked what procedures they use in the kitchen to prevent cross-contamination. He told me they just use gluten free ingredients. Which is obviously not the same as gluten free food. Anyone trained to cook or serve gluten free food would know exactly what I meant by that question as the necessary procedures are extensive. Some restaurants follow them, most don't bother learning what gluten free is about or how to do it. This restaurant is one of the latter. They told me they have had a gluten free menu for 5 years, so in all that time no one has looked up celiac disease or kitchen protocol for gf cooking. Very very disappointing!!

I have eaten here probably 30 times due to convenience. Not anymore. The waitress who is likely family of the owner has almost akways been unwelcoming and unhelpful. She actually ignored my questions about a dish that had previously made me sick, even when I repeated myself. She kept saying "what you want?" If you don't speak English and I have questions, find someone who can help me! Don't give regulars a look and tone that says "shut up and order!" The only dishes that didn't make me sick were sweet and sour chicken and lemon chicken, but I rarely ordered anything else. This is clearly not a restaurant trained in gluten free cooking, no matter how much I wanted to believe they are. Also, I think you get less food in "to go" orders.

The chips ARE fried with flour items and are not safe. They are reluctant to make recommendations on what might not make me sick. They seem unprepared to cater to Celiac patients. I came here because of Steve's glowing review and am completely let down. I thought I would get to eat real restaurant chips and nachos for the first time in 3 years. :(

Delicious fries from a fryer that ONLY cooks fries! Also the peanuts are gluten free. Not a totally dedicated restaurant due to bun crumbs. Even if they had a gf bun, it would be contaminated so it would be pointless to celiacs.

Gluten free menu, very good food, but not dedicated gluten free.
336 North Main Avenue, Gresham, OR 97030
They don't have a dedicated fryer, and cross-contamination is likely on the cooking surface. The food is not for celiacs, but the people were very friendly and helpful.
862 NW Burnside Rd, Gresham, OR 97030
Delicious and very cautious of cross-contamination, but still not guaranteed. This celiac approves, though!
305 N Main Ave, Gresham, OR 97030
They will tell you the chance of cross-contamination is high. Not for celiacs.

I got sick from the soup twice. I wish I could eat here, but the second time there was no doubt it was the restaurant. I won't be going again.
