About Me

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2010. It was hard to adjust to being gf in the beginning, but it has gotten much easier over time. Now it's second nature! I love enjoying good food and finding delicious, safe restaurants for Celiacs.

    11-22-14 update: I just have to update again. We went here recently and discovered they stopped serving gf bread. Disappointed, we asked why. The owner came to our table and explained that they had trouble keeping the bread in date and that it would crumble the day after it was defrosted resulting in lost money. I suggested they give the Udis bread (the large loaves sold at Costco) a chance. They did and had great results. They now are carrying gf bread again. If you get the chance, please visit this restaurant. You will not be disappointed. The food and service is AMAZING, and the owner really cares about taking care of his gf customers. I'm truly impressed with their level of care and quality. Most importantly, they are Celiac safe!! 5-20-14 update: I have been back here many times, and they are wonderful! They have only gotten better with time. They always take great care of my food preventing cc, and I never get sick eating here. So many delicious gf options and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Can't say enough about this place. Safe for Celiacs! Original review: Knowledgable staff, good food.

    Update 11-2-14: Not sure what's going on at this location, but I've gotten sick after eating here the last few times. I've stopped going. No longer celiac safe, and I'm very disappointed as this used to be a favorite spot. Changing my rating. Original review: Love this place! So many gf options, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They will automatically bring you gf soy sauce in place of the regular sauce they bring as soon as you mention gf. Also, they only put gf food on round plates to help keep from making mistakes! Wonderfu,l quality food and service.

    Wow. By far this is the best gf pizza I've had to date. My husband and son had pizza and I had a salad (also very good). Everything was delicious. Can't wait to go back. I'll definitely get a pizza next time.

    The service here is phenomenal. They are very helpful and give specific instructions about gf if you ask them. I have Celiac Disease and have had cupcakes from here 3 different times,and have never been sick. We just ordered for my little boy's birthday and they were beautiful and delicious. Great place!

    Wow! Phenomenal meal! And love love love being able to order anything off the menu! I had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and it was amazing. My husband had the turkey meatloaf and it was also delicious. Can't wait to come back! The only thing I would caution about is the children's spaghetti. If your little one doesn't like spicy things they may not enjoy the spaghetti. Nothing wrong with it, but my 3 year old couldn't eat it because of the spice. The server was very kind and quick to bring the butter pasta instead. Wonderful experience!! Definitely a must for gf/Celiacs!

    LOVE this place! The coffee is wonderful. The owners are very friendly and helpful with any gf questions. They don't always have gf cupcakes on hand, but will make them if you call ahead and request them. They are aware of cross contamination. Definitely a new favorite spot!

    Love this Red Robin. We have eaten here many times and I've never been sick after. The burgers are delicious and the gf buns are amazing. Lots of gf options and we've loved everything we've eaten. Great staff that is knowledgeable and will ask questions if they don't know. Great experience every time!

    Not safe for Celiacs! I called to ask about gf options and cc procedures. She didn't seem to know what I was talking about, so I asked if they cook regular pancakes with the gf pancakes and she said "yes". She was clearly agitated by my (very simple!) questions and hung up on me as soon as I thanked her for answering my questions. Rude service and not taking proper precautions to make safe gf food makes this an easy decision for me. I will not be eating here.

  • Phoenix Asian Cuisine

    1641 New Garden Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410

    The food wasn't that impressive. My husband and I ordered two different dishes (both gf, one was a honey chicken and the other was a spicy chicken) and they tasted exactly the same. And they didn't even have gf soy sauce. Very disappointing. I didn't feel that the staff was very knowledgable or caring about Celiac Disease, and was very nervous by the end of my meal that I would get sick. BUT I didn't have any reactions. So they did do a good job of not glutening me. I don't plan to go back, though. If you want EXELLENT Asian food, check out Taste of Asia.

    This is our favorite place for sushi. They are very educated in gf and can make adjustments to make almost any roll gluten free. They are always very friendly and helpful and they understand Celiac Disease and cross contamination. Love this place!

    Had such a wonderful experience here! Thanks to the previous poster's review, I decided to give this place a shot and I'm so glad I did. They were very aware of cross contamination and what is safe for gf. The food was delicious and I didn't get sick! Will definitely be going back.

    I hate giving a bad review for Outback because I have been to many other chains with great experiences. This one is one to stay away from, however. They didn't have a gluten free menu and simply printed out their "allergen" menu, which had conflicting information with their gluten free menu (which I looked up on my phone to verify since the items listed as gluten free on the "allergen" menu haven't been gluten free options in the past, such as fries and soups). When I asked about the conflicting information on the menus the server told me that "honestly everything is just fried in the same fryer" and that he didn't know what would actually be gluten free. The manager was also no help. Very frustrating and my family had to leave and go to a safer restaurant option. Will not be going back to this location. The one in High Point is wonderful, though!

    My favorite restaurant! We've eaten here many times. They have so many gf options and the staff is very knowledgeable. They even have gf bread for the cheese fondue course as well as gf brownies and pound cake with the chocolate fondue course. Everything is delicious!

    Loved this place! It was wonderful to be able to order anything I wanted off the menu. The head pastry chef is gluten intolerant so the entire menu is strictly gluten free. The food was delicious and we bought a baguette to go to enjoy later. So yum! We also tried the donut holes for dessert and they were amazing!

    I called to ask about cross contamination and the man informed me that if you have celiac and are very sensitive to gluten that you should not dine here. Such a disappointment!

    Love this place! Have been many times. They have their flavors listed on the wall showing which ones have different allergens. Most flavors are gf. They also have many toppings in individual containers that dispense the item without the need for scoops (so no cross contamination with those items!). Highly recommend!
