    Another great option for dining out. My wife is the celiac, and appreciates the GF bun that's edible (pretty good, by her report) and GF fries.

    Very good option for GF pizza in the area. There is only one crust available (medium), and you can have any topping added. We usually call ahead to order the GF pizza for my wife, and we all come in for the buffet. They do have a small salad bar to choose from, too, with GF dressings. You can also finish with the soft serve ice cream. We've been going to the Pizza Ranch restaurants for a couple years without a single problem. Thanks Pizza Ranch!

  • Hotel Riu Palace Costa Rica

    5 starsApril 02, 2015

    Playa Matapalo - Sardinal, Costa Rica

    several restaurants within the resort, 1 buffet, and 4 others. all of them were quite accommodating. the buffet always had a number of choices, 3 times daily. of the 4 remaining, 3 required reservations. if you mention celiac, they offered a couple of choices upon arrival, including specially prepared desserts, all of which were great.

    no GF menu, but were very accommodating. she was able to eat part of the salad bar (minimal GF dressings), a filet mignon, baked sweet taters and wine. no problems. only reason for 4 stars was the price. somewhat of a dive, but good eats.

  • Uncle Buck's Fishbowl and Grill

    5 starsAugust 15, 2014

    1000 Bass Pro Dr NW, Altoona, IA 50009

    We happened to be there (bass pro shop) doing some shopping, and stopped in their restaurant and bowling alley (pretty cool combo as part of bass pro shop). They didn't have a dedicated GF menu, but were very accommodating. my wife had a burger without the bun and a salad, and an angry orchard beverage, and no problems noted. It's a cool place, kid friendly, bar/bowling alley, "under the sea" theme. the regular menu has some atypical menu items for the non-celiacs. Would definitely go there again if in the area. Also, it's only a few minutes away from adventureland!!!

  • Smokey D's BBQ

    5 starsAugust 14, 2014

    5055 Northwest 2nd Street, Des Moines, IA 50313

    very good food. just ask for the GF menu when you get there. they do bring it out separated from the regular menu items. all bbq sauces GF there as well.

  • Outback Steakhouse

    5 starsAugust 14, 2014

    2410 SE Tones Drive, Ankeny, IA 50021

    good eats, helpful and knowledgeable staff.

  • Pizza Ranch

    4 starsAugust 14, 2014

    465 Center Place Southwest, Altoona, IA 50009

    as with many pizza ranch stores, they offer the typical medium GF pizza for about $10 with any toppings. only gave them 4 stars due to being unorganized, and not keeping the buffet stocked very well. otherwise, no problems with the grub!

  • Pizza Ranch

    1501 Broadway St, Yankton, SD 57078

    like many of the other pizza ranch restaurants, the yankton location recently added the medium GF pizza to their menu. for those of you who haven't been to PR, it's a buffet. we usually call ahead to order to my wife's GF pizza (any toppings you want), so it's ready when we get there. then she doesn't have to wait while we begin to pig out. only gave it 4 stars because it's not quite as nice, and staff could have been a little more friendly.

  • Lucca Restaurant

    4 starsJune 01, 2014

    226 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02113

    good food, but rather expensive. had GF pasta available, but not much for pasta dishes. my wife got the risotto side and thought it was good. another flourless choc cake for dessert. in comparison to others in the area, it was okay. likely would not return due to costs, but otherwise food and staff were fine.

  • Legal Sea Foods

    5 starsJune 01, 2014

    26 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116

    great food! staff very helpful and fairly knowledgeable of GF concerns. dedicated GF menu. manager specifically brought out my wife's GF meal, as noted in other reviews. they did have a GF flourless chocolate cake, more like an oversized truffle, that was pretty tasty! we definitely did not go away hungry. loved it! went to am overpriced Italian joint in the north side, and would go back to LSF way before the Italian joint!

  • Finale Desserts

    4 starsJune 01, 2014

    1 Columbus Ave, Boston, MA 02116

    we got the GF chocolate decadence and the (crustless) cheesecake. both pretty darn good. only reason i would give 4 stars instead of five is risk of contamination, with all desserts in same display case. my wife ate part of both of them without any problems. a little pricey, but hey, it's also Boston. would go there again if in the area.

  • Papa Razzi

    4 starsJune 01, 2014

    120 S 31st Ave, Omaha, NE 68131

    Had several GF choices on the menu. My wife really liked her choice. Only close call was, Chips and salsa at the table was very good, but had 2 choices. One wasn't GF, but we hadn't asked in time. The guacamole was also GF, made fresh at your table. Would definitely eat there again.

  • Mama's Deli & Catering

    good GF bread for sandwiches, somewhat airy/light. would agree with other reviews. kid friendly, too. reasonable price, considering next to U of I campus.

  • Pagliai's Pizza

    5 starsMay 05, 2014

    1500 West 18th Street South, Newton, IA 50208

    great option for the GF diner. not all pizza ranches have GF pizza, but the ones that do, typically have a medium pizza for $10, any toppings.
