    My husband and I have ate here dozens of times without incidence. They have a very wide selection of gluten-free items. For the most part, the wait staff is very aware of gluten - even in alcoholic beverages. They have incredible flavor combinations and a really fun atmosphere. Make sure you use the "No Wait App" if you are dining on a busy night.

    Gluten-free pizza is pretty solid. The manager was able to detail several things they do to avoid cross-contamination. I can't give them 5 stars due to the price - VERY expensive for pizza . . .

    This location always has a great awareness of cross-contamination. As the other reviewers have noted, the restaurant is 100% gluten free with the exception of buns, which they can easily keep away from your burger and fries. It's wonderful to have fries with zero chance of gluten.

    The best tamales I've had outside of southern Texas! For those of us with Celiac disease, the comfort of a 100% gluten free restaurant cannot be overstated. Great food, great service!

    This fabulous restaurant just opened in Richmond's West End. It is a sister restaurant to Toast in the same shopping center. The ENTIRE restaurant is gluten free!!! The menu is Peruvian/Latin American and offers a wide variety of options at all price points. Everything we tried had an excellent blend of flavors. Great owners. We will definitely be back soon!

    I dine at the hot/cold bars on a regular basis. The staff are VERY knowledgeable. Although they will list if wheat is an ingredient, they will not list gluten. They are also unwilling/unable to label anything as gluten-free since they do not have a dedicated kitchen and cook pizza beside their kitchen. This leads to some limitations when "spices", "flavoring" or other ominous items are on the ingredients list. The staff are always very patient and eager to help, but I have not been able to convince them to put "gluten" on their ingredient cards yet :) The grocery store obviously offers an enormous array of GF items and often has them specially marked.

    This establishment has a dedicated fryer and I felt the staff to be very knowledgeable. It's a sports bar, which is a nice option when dining out with friends who are not aware of my disease. I was excited to have fries and wings without fear of getting sick. Not only did I not get sick, I had enough fries for 2 meals as the portion was huge!

    Although they have several GF items I consider "converted" GF (pancakes, etc.), I have found that they have a poor knowledge of the gluten content of the remainder of the menu. I called the main office and their staff was extremely friendly and able to look up details of various items on the menu. Per the home office, each store manager has access to a "master book" that identifies each item on the menu. Unfortunately, this location could not locate theirs when I visited. I also got the impression that the wait staff had a very poor understanding of gluten. Prior to my diagnosis this was one of my go-to spots, so my rating is with a heavy heart . . .

    Wonderful restaurant! Excellent vibe, great service, and the most creative gluten-free menu in town. We had the Pierogi Nachos (very fun flavors), Mexican burger (gluten-free bun if you would like), and the parmesan truffle fries (a MUST). My husband had the fish tacos and sweet potato tots and loved everything. They had a GF dessert option, but we didn't save room. They do NOT have a dedicated fryer. Personally, I will sometimes take a chance if I do not see many fried items on the menu. I did not have any reaction, but understand this can easily change based upon what other patrons are ordering. We loved this establishment and I am sure you will as well!

    This gem is a phenomenal local market featuring locally-sourced organic foods. They have a wide array of gluten-free options, including traditional groceries, fresh-baked goods, and a raw juice bar. The highlight is their large hot and cold food bars. The majority of dishes on the bars are gluten-free, which is clearly marked along with all of the ingredients. The staff is unbelievably helpful and able to answer any questions you might have. When newly diagnosed with Celiac disease, navigating the "real world" can be scary. This establishment has been my saving grace. I have never had a bad experience and the food is DELICIOUS!!!!

    Just like the other reviewer, I literally opened an account just to rave about this new gem. I had the Basil Beef and it was by far one of the best Chinese dishes I have ever had. My husband had the Asian Rib Rack - I think they could have easily fed a table of four and tasted delicious. The two other people we dined with also loved their meals. It was one of those experiences where you look around the restaurant at everyone else's dishes and want to try them all! Gluten-free options were clearly marked, allowing me to avoid awkward conversations with the waiter in front of friends (if you are Celiac you know exactly what I mean).The ambiance is fabulous. The space is covered in re-claimed wood and exposed brick. It's fun, but you never get the feeling they are trying to be hip. We went around 7pm on a Saturday - it was full, but we lucked out and did not need to wait. LOVE this place and can't wait to return!
