    Many, many gluten-free choices and solid kitchen make this a good option near PAX. Knowledgeable, friendly staff and really good food (try the grilled catfish) puts this on my short list.

    They know what they're doing and understand about cross-contamination. Also have a more extensive gluten-free selection than most chain restaurants. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable. I go back here whenever I'm in the area.

    Great restaurant now has serious commitment to gluten-free customers! They have made a corporate move to gluten-free as the default for most dishes; they even make four kinds of gluten-free pastas fresh in the kitchen! All of their sauces and salad readings are gluten-free and the chef comes out to make sure they take care of you. Only ore-made things like lasagna are off-limits. Finally, a restaurant that gets it!Great food, great service and good value makes this at the very least a go-to place for special occasions. Mangia!

    High-quality gluten-free pizza crust. All but two toppings are gluten-free. Well-trained staff works to avoid cross-contamination. You can get a pizza very quickly and they are open 7 days/week until 10:00 pm.

    Many GF choices plus an extensive salad bar make this a good choice. The staff is well-trained, knowledgeable and helpful in ordering and the entire experience is easy to navigate.

    They take a different approach. Tell them you're GF, they check with the chef for that day's menu, you choose and they make it gluten-free They can make almost any c their proteins GF and have many salads & sides that are GF. List one star because like do many places they have very few GF desserts. But what they have is spectacular.

    Update: I was sick as a dog the next day. Turns out the kitchen has no concept of avoiding cross-contamination. STAY FAR AWAY. They have many GF choices on the menu. The food was fast, tasty, generous and decent quality. I had the chips & queso, side salad (no croutons, separate prep), ribeye steak and baked potato. No problems at all. The only negative is that not all front staff is trained. The hostess told me they did not have a GF menu, but the bartender showed it to me, suggested ideas, and made sure the kitchen had correct instructions. I'd go back there.

    Great selection of GF items. Need more GF soups. Two GF soups from other locations not available here. They have improved cross contamination issues and I have never had a problem here. I am not Celiac or super-sensitive though. The menu disclaimer is standard legal boilerplate. They really are eager to help and I eat here often.

    Gluten-free buns with amazing hot dogs. They understand about cross-contamination. If you like hot dogs, this is a must!

    Great food; great service; solid GF choices. Their grilled chicken items (sans buns) and most salads are GF, as are most of their salad dressings and condiments. They also publish the ingredients of their GF items in their Website. They do not have a separate GF prep area, but their procedures are designed to prevent cross-contamination. Try the Cobb Salad with Grilled Chicken and Lime Avocado Ranch. Also VERY kid-friendly!

    Very limited GF menu; a bit pricey. Food is OK; a solid B. May try again. It's so easy to do GF Asian that they really should do more than dip their toe in the water.

    Although it has pitas and gluten in the soups and tahini, the test of the menu is gluten-free, fresh and DELICIOUS!

    Good food; good selection of gluten-free menu items. Service is a crap shoot; avoid 2 pm when shifts change.
