    I'll echo what other reviewers have said. Burton's is fantastic! The wife and I went for lunch. The atmosphere is great. The staff was super and the food was outstanding. I had the soup of the day southwest veggie and the barbecue chicken salad. The gluten free dinner roll really made it feel like a "real" meal. I agree... Burton's does GF right. 5 stars. We are already planning to take the whole family there for my birthday dinner.

    Had to swing by to check them out after hearing so much about Dee's Bakery. Wow! as others have said ALL of their stuff is just fantastic. Tried out some of the choc chunk cookies, sugar cookies, and a cupcake. Wonderful! Fortunately we don't live too far away and will definitely go back to try some more items.soon. Items are a bit pricey but the taste and quality of the baked goods is unrivaled in the GF food world. Staff is nice and very helpful. Great work... 5+ stars!

    A good number of GF choices and they specialize in veg and vegan dishes which were delicious!. Love that their menu clearly IDs the GF selections. Wait staff is nice and very helpful. Seating area and overall atmosphere was nice too. A great lunchtime GF dining experience. I'll be back again for sure. 5 stars!

  • Gina Marie's Family Restaurant

    5 starsAugust 31, 2013

    71 Main St, Hebron, CT 06248

    My wife and I have always enjoyed dining at Gina Marie's especially for breakfasts. Since being diagnosed with CD I've had to skip the toast, pancakes, and similar with the breakfast. Just learned of their gluten free offerings and tried the gluten free toast with my usual veggie omelet. Slices were big and fluffy and tasty! Every bit as good as "regular" bread. I'm thrilled to be able to enjoy toast with the breakfast out again! I'll definitely be back and probably try some of their other GF offerings. 5 stars!

  • Illiano's

    My wife and I always enjoyed going to this Illiano's to dine in. Since being diagnosed with CD haven't been able to enjoy much Italian food or pizza. When we found out they offered GF pizza we went back again to try it. Overall it was a great GF dining experience. I had a red vegetarian GF pizza and salad and wife had her usual chicken parm. Server was nice enough to tell me that the eggplant on the veg pizza was breaded and asked if I would like to leave it off. I thought pizza was good. Obviously not the same as their regular dough pizzas but great for a guy to enjoy a pizza night out with the wife again! Jazzed up with crushed red pepper and grated Parmesan made it even tastier. 5 stars! I'll be back again.

  • The Spicy Green Bean

    225 Hebron Ave, Glastonbury, CT 06033

    I don't know if ownership has changed or what since the other reviews were written but my GF dining experience with this restaurant was poor. Contrary to other reviews, GF wraps were not offered. The waitperson was pretty much disinterested in offering any real help with the menu other that to say they had GF bread. I had a veggie burger on ho hum GF sliced bread with sweet potato fries which were the only GF side offered. Taste was good but price was high for a very much unexceptional food and drink experience. Had to try it once to see. Based on good prior reviews my hopes were high but I likely won't be going back again. Two stars only cause the food tasted OK.
