About Me

I have not ever officially been tested or diagnosed with celiac but my gluten reaction is very sensitive. I do occasionally take calculated chances with possible contamination. I frequently react to cross-contamination and feel whole body aches and pains just 10 minutes later in those cases.

    Love their GF pizza crust! Chewy like I love instead of crumbly like a lot of other places. And their garlic butter "sauce" is fantastic (I'm not a huge fan of red sauce so I love having this alternative)!

    Good stuff. Full GF menu. Lots of great options so I don't get tired of the same few!

    8601 W. Cross Drive, Littleton, CO 80123

    Good food, decent selection (except the GF menu is not organized the same as the standard menu so it is not easy to cross reference). I love the steak, prime rib, shrimp, salad, and dessert! Lots of GF stuff. Only negative was that they often put the little cup of Au Jus (that is NOT) GF on my plate and it sloshes all over on the way to the table even when I ask not to be served it. I'll make a bigger deal next time and I'm sure they'll get it right because they do seem to care.

    Yay that they added GF buns and they have GF seasoning salt - and I am excited that they changed their ranch dressing so it doesn't contain gluten now! I hope they add a few more options, but otherwise I do love their food.

    Everything except the chili and the regular buns are gluten-free! Their burgers, sauces, fries, and GF buns are delish! They even bring GF stuff out to the table on a separate tray. Love this place!

  • Falling Rock Cafe & Book Store

    Went twice during my stay. They use Rudi's GF bread/bagels/English muffins. I had the smoked fish open face sandwich on English muffin with cream cheese and a breakfast sandwich on a bagel. Both we good. Glad I had somewhere to eat while in town. Their Iced Vanilla Latte was really great too. It definitely has a bookstore/coffee shop/ice cream parlor feel, but is open late for cafe type food anytime of day. Definitely yummy, but not amazing.

  • Bambu Asian Restaurant

    4 starsJuly 11, 2013

    1301 Ridge Road, Houghton, MI 49931

    Our server was very helpful and knowledgable about the menu options that were naturally gluten free. The choices were curry dishes, dishes with white sauces, edamame (appetizer), egg drop soup, and other veggie options. My food (beef green curry) was delicious and a nice change from most other standard options available at restaurants in the area. The friendly service, clean restaurant, reasonable price, and great decor made this experience extra special. I would have given 5 stars if they had an actual GF menu or any dishes that could be customized with GF Tamari instead of standard soy sauce. A very good choice still!

  • Yankee Rebel Tavern

    4 starsJuly 09, 2013

    3 Astor Street, Mackinac Island, MI 49757

    No dedicated gluten free menu so you still have to ask about sauces and options, but much of the menu can be made gluten free. Including pasta and buns. Great pot roast sandwich. The pistachio encrusted whitefish was not battered. No fries since they have a common fryer. No cream sauces - apparently thickened with flour. But I also got hard cider and GF dessert was Creme brûlée! Good food, lots of options, delicious food. Would rate it higher if I didn't have to ask about each and every item I was interested in. Good option on Mackinac Island!

  • Shucks Fish House and Oyster Bar

    1911 Leavenworth St, Omaha, NE 68102

    Love this place! We found it on my GF app. But when we drove to it we weren't so sure. But the staff was super friendly and knowledgeable! And their GF menu was almost a huge as the regular. With dedicated fryers and special batter! The first time I've had breaded/fried shrimp, fish & chips, calamari, and my lobster sandwich was on an Udi's roll! Fantastic!

  • Two Brothers Delicatessen

    1424 Miner Street, Idaho Springs, CO 80452

    After stumbling around Idaho Springs looking for a restaurant I could eat at besides Beau Jo's I happened to walk in this place and mention "gluten-free". They immediately told me the had gluten-free bread to make for sandwiches! I don't know if the prepare them on a cleaned off surface - but the sandwiches we ordered (salmon salad sandwich and Reuben) were amazing. And even though I am usually very sensitive to cross-contamination - I did not feel any gluten reaction from eating there. I recommend that you check this place out!

  • Gluten Free Way

    4 starsJanuary 22, 2013

    10125 West San Juan Way #130, Littleton, CO 80127

    I'm so excited about this place. This is a great "one-stop-shop" for all gluten-free necessities (and treats)! They even have a few products I hadn't seen before. Try the Vegan Oat Bread! I was hesitant at first since I thought "why give up dairy and egg just because I can't have gluten?" - but oh my, this is the best bread I have had in my 2+ years without gluten! I'm literally finding excuses to eat it! I'll give them another star if they improve their seating/eat-in accommodations and include some ready to eat bakery treats and/or drinks. Although the shop has a lot to offer from a product standpoint, I can't wait to see how the "feel" is optimized! Looking forward to the grand opening on Feb 2, 2013!

    Great selection. Loved the GF waffle! Enjoyed the restaurant and didn't get sick!

    399 W Littleton Blvd, Littleton, CO 80120

    If this wasn't a GF review I would give them 10 stars! This is my favorite Thai restaurant in the metro area and Thai food is probably my favorite meal! I love this place and found a few standards (carried over from before I had to stop eating gluten) that I stick with. Most of the servers are very nice but they are usually very busy. I have never seen any gluten free menu or options but they can often tell me if soy sauce is in a dish. My two standards are the Pad Thai with chicken and medium spice (beware it is spicy), and the panang curry with chicken over rice. I'm sure there are other naturally GF options but I'm afraid to try something else and haven't asked questions regarding gluten. They haven't accommodated me in any specific way but I haven't really asked here. My standards don't make me sick so I just keep ordering them! Certainly worth the price and still my standard!

  • Bacco Trattoria

    3 starsOctober 24, 2012

    10125 W San Juan Way #150, Littleton, CO 80127

    Fun spot, amazing cappuccinos, wonderful chef that made the one GF dish option very tasty and accommodated me with knowledgable suggestions. Great dish but poor quantity of selections. I hope they add more options and dessert because my gluten-loving husband loves this place.

  • Olive Garden

    3 starsOctober 24, 2012


    I used to love this restaurant. And I am glad they have an allergen menu. They do have one GF penne pasta option but it just doesn't compare to the marvelous tastes in the rest of the food I can't have anymore. If they had any GF dessert options I'd give them another star. I do still love their salad (without croutons)

  • Angelina's Italian Restaurant

    4 starsOctober 24, 2012

    8100 W Crestline Ave, Littleton, CO 80123

    I enjoyed my food, was pleased at the staff's GF knowledge, and appreciated the GF bread. But my selections were fairly limited and the price was pretty high. Good experience and will return, but it won't be a regular option.

  • Chipotle

    A great "fast food" staple in my GF diet. Never had a reaction.

  • Merle's

    4 starsAugust 01, 2012

    2609 W Main St, Littleton, CO 80120

    Awesome options (menu designating which can be made GF). Friendly but not super knowledgable servers regarding gluten. Fun options, but cross contamination is likely. I reacted here - but would probably try again and be more clear with server/chef since there seem to be so many great options to try!

  • The Melting Pot

    5 starsAugust 01, 2012

    2707 W Main St, Littleton, CO 80120

    Love this place! Great GF breads for dipping in cheese (made with broth instead of beer), Lots of meat and sauce options, awesome GF brownies and treats for dipping in chocolate. Knowledgable and accommodating. Great food and ambiance - but spendy and lengthy meal (4 courses!). Definitely worth the money - for special occasions.

  • Saucy's Pizza

    4 starsJuly 31, 2012

    5055 S Kipling St, Littleton, CO 80127

    One of my standards. Good GF pizza - but not as amazing as their regular pizzas. They have the standard toppings, nothing exciting. But haven't gotten sick - so that is something!

  • Sweet Tomatoes

    3 starsJuly 31, 2012

    7736 West Long Drive, Littleton, CO 80123

    They list which salads are GF, and there are many GF toppings. But most of the soups, and all the pasta and bread is off limits. I usually get a baked potato (with decent toppings) and tapioca pudding. But it isn't high on my list of places to visit. But at least I know I can eat something if other people want to go for buffet style foods there.

  • Tokyo Joe's

    5 starsApril 02, 2012

    8501 W Bowles Ave, Littleton, CO 80123

    Multiple options. Love their GF Teriyaki sauce and their curry...I even combine them. Knowledgable workers that make a great effort to get it right and accommodate my needs!

  • Le Peep

    5 starsApril 02, 2012

    8055 W Bowles Ave, Littleton, CO 80123

    Delicious and very extensive GF menu. They take many precautions to avoid contamination and have a large variety of options including breads, buns, waffles, sauces and more. Le Peep was a favorite of mine before I learned of my gluten intolerance and is now once again!

  • Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill

    5 starsFebruary 26, 2012

    8246 W Bowles Ave, Littleton, CO 80123

    Very knowledgable staff and every item is labeled for gluten and vegetarian diets so you know what options you can have (almost everything). The food wasn't what I was used to but I have grown to love it and rely on this nearby restaurant as a fast food staple.

  • Lotus Cafe

    5 starsFebruary 25, 2012

    73-5617 Maiau St, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740

    Their entire menu is gluten-free - with maybe an exception in their beer selection. The variety on the menu was awesome - having more than just a few options was so refreshing. They have Asian Fusion with more of a Thai flair with unique and delicious adaptations.

    I love this restaurant and their GF menu...just ask for it. The mussel appetizer is fantastic!
