They have burgers in a bowl or with lettuce wrap, just ask. Great fries, which are the only thing they fry, and a cool computerized drink machine that can make 100 kinds of soda. I said " no bun, I eat gluten free" and the cashier asked me if I would like them to change gloves. It's about $12 per person for a burger, fries and a drink. I always enjoy eating at Five Guys and never have had a gluten reaction. They have a very limited menu, which makes it easier and you can see them cook the food. They also had a veggie sandwich for vegetarians.Don't use the malt vinegar which will have barley in it if you have celiac or NCGS.

Wendy's is my go to gluten free fast food spot. I had a small bowl of chili and the bacon cheese baked potato. Sometimes I have a chocolate Frosty, too. All naturally gluten free according to their website, so i don't have to ask a lot of questions or try to convince them to make it a special way. I was stuffed and did not feel deprived as my family enjoyed their burgers.

They do not have a gluten free menu. The waitress was friendly, but not trained about allergies. I spoke to the manager, who was friendly and well trained about allergies. He said I could have the shrimp and grits for about $20 or the steamer for two. The steamer was not on the menu.He even checked that the sauce for the grits was ok. We splurged on the $60 steamer for two, which fed 3 of us until we were at the point of bursting! It had lots of crab legs, small boiled potatoes, shrimp,and corn. They steamed the sausages separately and served separately, as they were not sure if they were GF, so I didn't chance it on the sausage.I also had some Angry Orchard cider,too. The restaurant has a nice beach view.

On the phone they said almost everything is gluten free, but actually the opposite is true. Almost everything is fried with few salad options. There were some $25 fish that might have been able to be made plain, if you like $25 plain fish with plain broccoli. The waitress was very nice and tried to be helpful, but it was obvious they aren't trained regarding allergies and are not prepared to accommodate them. I ended up with a plain Caesar salad, basically lettuce with Caesar dressing for $8. Lots of great looking food, but none for you if you eat GF! Go to some of the other places in Pensacola that have great GF food!

They have a GF menu with several items,including burgers, fish, and a couple appetizers. I had the taco salad, which had chili instead of taco meat, but it was yummy. The star is the GF brownie sundae, which fed four of us dessert for 7.99. You can sit inside or outside on a covered deck feet from the water, watching boats go by. Our total was $72 for 4 people. It is right next to a dolphin cruise, which we took right before we ate here, in the Marina in Destin, FL.

Great sandwich shop that is very close to the beach. Lots of gluten free options, actually most everything can be made with gf bread or wrap. The gf focaccia flat bread makes a great sandwich, with a New Grist beer. Only downside is that it is expensive for sandwiches, about $15 per person with drinks, but worth it for an easy Gf meal! My non gf family loved it, too.
