Jakes is a small coffee shop/ bakery with a limited menu that offers a good variety of soups, sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. They also sell their own brand of pancake, cookie, muffin mixes. I had the chicken salad sandwich and the best coffee I ever had. I couldn't eat a muffin or cookie as none of them were dairy free, but my friend had a banana chocolate chip muffin and couldn't believe it was gluten free because it was so good. Our server did state that the owner will take special orders with advance notice.

This place is located inside Bass Pro Shop. When asked if they could provide a safe gluten free meal, I was assured that the chef could handle this plus most other allergen related food issues. There isn't a separate gf menu, but the waitress was very helpful and before my order was placed she checked with the chef to see how it would be prepared. I ordered shrimp, vegetables, and baked potato. The rice and cocktail sauce were not gf, so the potato was suggested instead. My order was placed in oven instead of grill to assure it would be safe. I wish all restaurants were this careful. The food was wonderful!

After reading the views on this site, I decided to give it a try. Just as others have reported, when the hostess was made aware that I had celiac, she sent for the manager. He was very aware of the procedures that are necessary for a gf meal. I had several choices and chose the burger and fries. No bun, but excellent food. My fries were baked to avoid the fryer, Before we left, he returned to make sure my meal was fine. I will definitely return!

I was thrilled to find this place, and my first trip there was successful. I ordered a plain burger and fries. A gf burger can be ordered as a wrap with lettuce or in a bowl. My second trip was not so great. Again, I ordered the same burger and fries, but I was sick the next day. Maybe it would have been different if I had not gone during lunchtime, but when you tell them you have celiac and they acknowledge that they fully understand, you should expect a gf meal. I think the problem comes because they use their hands to dip into toppings and assemble burgers. I don't know if there was a glove exchange as I didn't pay as close attention this time. Everything is gf except buns and malt vinegar.

Chipotle is my favorite place to get a gluten free meal. I dine here once a month at least and have not had a problem yet. Each time I was there, a staff member changed gloves. Once, I heard a worker warn another not to touch my dish as it was gf. Needless to say, I was impressed! The burrito bowls are fabulous!!

Very safe place to eat in my opinion. I have eaten there at least 6-8 times without a problem. When I question ingredients, I always get a detailed answer. Outback is one of the few places I can always trust. I hope it is the same for all Outback Restaurants.

. I must say the staff was very knowledgeable . I ordered a combo plate to share and was kindly reminded that the fries and roll were not GF, but they offered to put them on a separate plate. My only suggestion is to ask for BBQ sauce with your order. It's served in plastic bottles on the tables, so I was worried about "glutened" hands touching it. If you want BBQ nachos, which I highly recommend, bring your own GF tortilla chips, and they will fix them for you. All meats, sauces, cole slaw, and beans are GF!

Quite a few menu items marked GF on menu. The chicken fajitas were very good, but the refried beans and flour tortillas served with it were not GF. When I questioned it, they brought out corn tortillas and offered a side dish of black beans (I was charged for these). Chips and salsa (mild only) are GF. Excellent food, but I did have a reaction to it; possibly from picking up the tortillas.
