    wow, best GF pizza around! They use fresh ingredients. The pizza combos are light and flavorful. The Mexican and Santa Fe.pizza are amazing. My gluten eating, "GF tastes horrible" husband always steals a piece and loves the GF crust. They also include the glutenfree pizzas in their specials, which we appreciate. It's frustrating when a company excludes the glutenfree pizzas from any specials.

    This has become our go-to glutenfree spot. Love their sandwiches. He uses Boar's head meats, you not only get glutenfree meats, but high quality. Last night I had the Reuben and it was incredible. Can't beat high quality cornedbeef. They have two sides of prep- a glutenfree side and regular. The owner is engaged and remembers you. Fantastic, local place!

    Amazing food, Grouchy waitress, very expensive I was thrilled to try this place and the cave to eat of the entire menu without worry was awesome. unfortunately, our waitress was so crabby and unwilling to answer questions or even be nice about cutting a burger in half, that I'm not sure I'd go back. I actually wanted to buy some yummies to take home, but she treated us so like we were such trouble, I just wanted to get out of there. They could have probably sold me $30 in take home, but I gave up. The other frustrating thing is, they charge you an adult price for a kids size cup....and we couldn't bother her to refill their drinks. The food was 6 star, but service 1star and price 2star, not bc it was high price which I expect with GF, but bc they made accommodations SO much trouble that it made it feel very expensive.

    Absolutely delicious! My server was very sweet and helpful. The SouthWest Benedict is amazing. I got a little extra hollandaise for my hashbrowns. BE FOREWARNED--, their "GF" version of cheesecake pancakes is a normal cheesecake scraped off the crust. I discovered that when I put the cheesecake filling on my Gf pancakes and found graham cracker crust in it! The waitress was very understanding and they remade it, but I think they either need to make a real GF cheesecake or remove that option as a GF option. that's why 3 stars instead of 5. if not for that, a perfect 5 for food, service and atmosphere

    mixed on this one. DH loved it. his burger looked divine. he eats gluten. DDs ordered chocolate chip pancakes and we asked for them gf. they looked lovely, nice and fluffy. looks like they might use Pamelas pancake mix. i recognized those brown flecks. (since they dont mention, ask what they use if you are allergic to nuts bc Pamelas has nuts). I ordered the Kicken Potatoes, with a side of eggs to put on top. pretty tasty, tho left under the broiler a bit too long. my biggest reason for a 3 star is that our waitress didn't know what gluten is....I suggest you ask for a wait person who is familiar with glutenfree. Also some stuff is canned or frozen. we asked if the chicken tenders could be made glutenfree and she came back and said they are pre-packed frozen, so no. So it's mixed. it's pretty good, more pluses than minuses, but the minuses are significant. for instance, they warn you that they have gf bread, but it will be toasted in a shared toaster. so I had to take all bread out of my consideration because I'm sensitive. the frustrating thing is, go buy a new toaster for $30 and label it GLUTENFREE Bread only! Then they can sell more and ensure more safety for their guests.

    Steer clear of this place. avoided pancakes for myself based on previous reviews. DD wanted pigs in a blanket, which someone said were good. however, the pancakes taste like baking soda and are hard. no kids menu, so we paid 8.99 for her breakfast. DS had fruit cup with wrinkled old blueberries. $4. since pancakes weren't reviewed well, decided on yhe Huevoes Rancheros. the fried tortillas were swimming in oil, "over medium" eggs were raw, but didn't discover till most of it was eaten so didn't contest. Their signature drink, the Maple Tree coffee was completely tasteless. I kept thinking, wow, nice one page menu, gorgeous cafe inside even tho very smoky smell. kinda reminds me of a restaurant impossible type theory. well a few reviews on Trip Advisor mentioned they haf been "helped" on RI. too bad the food is still not good. I'm hoping I dont end up with salmonella. it's too bad since they are willing to offer the glutenfree. oh and it was $40 for my husband and I and two kids. we ordered some of the least expensive we could find. real bummer

    a definite choice if you are visiting vegas and need Gf options stop here! lots of options. pizza crust is excellent, probably the best Gf crust i had. not too chewy, not too hard. nice thin crust.ordered the Prosciutto and it was divine. our waitress was very patient with us and they were very willing to check why something wasnt on the GF options and makr accodomations when possible. if we ever visit Vegas again, will be sure to eat here!
