    608 North Mangum Street, Durham, NC 27701

    This food is good and they're accommodating but I had to wait an hour outside (no indoor seating) for a $16 meal of fried fish and slaw... the foods great but I don't know if it was worth that.

    The staff was very helpful and double checked everything for me during the slower midweek lunch hour. Delicious sandwich with salad... fries do not have dedicated fryer, so they're a no go but the panna cotta for dessert is amazing.

    a little unclear on whats safe or not but I settled on tacos w corn tortillas and didn't get sick. Very good food, a little pricey for what it is

    Be careful with their spice levels! All the curries were amazing and the lentil soup was gf. Loved the mango lassi as well.

    Love it here! Such a great place to eat with more than enough gf friendly options. Skip the breads and fried goodies and you'll still find tons of incredible dishes.

  • The Pit Authentic Barbecue

    321 W Geer St, Durham, NC 27701

    The pulled bbq was like pasta lengths strips of meat and the waiter told me only one sauce was safe for me to use. The sides I could eat were essentially limited to slaw and raw veg... Wasn't impressed with the staff or the meat.

    Fish tacos! There are some great options for eating here and I felt very well taken care of. Good prices and love the outdoor patio - especially at night! Sandwiches can be on gf bread which is nice but no fries etc. for you!

    I appreciate all the options and idea of thisnplace but I can't say I enjoyed it. My friend and I ordered 2 different types of ramen and didn't like either very much. I didn't get sick but I didn't eat my leftovers either.

    Another pricey restaurant but absolutely wonderful! Great atmosphere service and food from start to finish with attentive, knowledgeable staff. Fresh fish and amazing soups.

  • Bull City Burger and Brewery

    107 E Parrish St #105, Durham, NC 27701

    YUM. They're burgers are top notch and with burger juice and sauces soaking into your gf bun, you won't miss the gluten! No dedicated fryer so their incredible fries are a no go, hence the four stars. Pickled veggies and ice cream are good. Ciders, cocktails and wines are available too - not just beer!

  • Cuban Revolution Restaurant & Bar

    318 Blackwell St, Durham, NC 27701

    I'm really not a fan. I've been twice now but won't be going back. The waitress was absolutely clueless and when I asked a few questions she said "it should be safe". That's not very reassuring. Ended up with pretty good tacos but everything else was just meh. Not fresh like a lot of places nearby.

    Not much but the macarons and caramels are well worth the visit! Delicious but made with lard, beware vegetarians!

    I've only been once or twice but the gf eggs benedict options are sooo good! I highly recommend for breakfast, brunch or whatever!

    This is one of my favorite places to eat. They have sushi and gf soy sauce (tamari)! I've been missing sushi a lot in the gf world but I feel safe eating here, they always play on the safe side and omit a few sauces/toppings on the sushi. Good cocktails, nice people, bogo sushi!

    Big splurge for me but well worth it. Not for casual dining but absolutely delicious food. I had risotto that was too soup-y for me and the salad was okaaay. The main course, desserts, and service is hard to beat! They will really take care of you and your dietary meeds - and most of the menu is naturally gf!

    I can't get enough of this place! I get the burrito bowl which is pleeenty of food. The waiters are very knowledgeable and asked me if I was celiac because the fryer is shared - sadly tortilla chips are a no go. Great toppings, slaws, salsas, meat, desserts AND margaritas.

  • Bull Street Gourmet & Market

    3710 Shannon Rd, Shannon Plaza, Durham, NC 27707

    Really tasty food here but a little pricey for me for a casual soup/salad/sandwich kind of lunch. That's the only reason for 4/5 stars... it was easy to find something I could eat and the salads are divine.

    Incredible food! The dinner buffet on the weekend is worth the month. Tell a waiter you can't eat gluten and they'll help you with everything! I couldn't have the breads or samosas but everything else was delicious.

  • Hummingbird Bakery

    721 Broad St, Durham, NC 27705

    loved this place - great place to stop if you're walking around the Duke wall or 9th street! Good coffee and very friendly staff. macarons and brownie were delicious, but both $3 which is a bit much for what it was. but the server used gloves so I felt safe eating it all and could enjoy it outside!

  • Daisy Cakes

    401 Foster St, Durham, NC 27701

    I know DaisyCakes started out with cupcakes but I'm not really a fan. That said, I looove everything else. They do tarts and bread puddings gluten free which you don't get everyday! The turkey bacon avocado on gf bread was delicious as was the almond apple tartlet.

    200 N Mangum St, Durham, NC 27701

    they recently went entirely gluten free (the kitchen at least... the few gluten containing items are brought in from outside source) which is really exciting but the service has been terrible the few times I've been and the veggie enchiladas were a bit strange! but fried calamari in rice flour?? yes please!

  • Old Havana Sandwich Shop

    5 starsMarch 18, 2015

    310 East Main Street, Durham, NC 27701

    I looove this place. Their sandwiches are incredible and when they run out of bread there's still a pork plate with rice and beans etc. that's gluten-free yay! Also the coffee is perfect - reminds me of being back in Spain!

    I went during a foodtruck rodeo which might skew my response but I didn't think the noodles were worth the hour wait. The deep fried sweet potato samosa things however.... incredible. Love the idea but didn't love the food.

    delicious ciders! even with a recent celiac diagnosis I've never been a huge fan of beer and ciders are usually too sweet but these are great! my whole family (beer brewers and drinkers, all) really loved this place and the guys working there. we got the sampler (okay more than one) and I couldn't decide which I liked best. great stuff!!

  • Cheesecake Factory

    8030 Renaissance Parkway #950, Durham, NC 27713

    the gfree godiva cheesecake is killer but the rest of my meal.... not so much. the gluten-free menu is great but when I was ready to order I found out the fries are NOT gluten free because it's a shared frier.... even though they're listed as gluten free. my burger was just okay and the bun was super dry. They have loads of choices but be careful!

  • Roti

    1311 F Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20004

    I loved this place! I've had gluten-free pita bread before but this was hands down the best. when I asked for gluten-free pita (because it's not really advertised) the waiter asked if it was preference or an allergy. When I told him it was an allergy he directed me a completely different preparation area. This way only one person was preparing my food with fresh gloves and my own blissfully uncontaminated toppings. The chicken roti on gf pita w/ all the fixings was phenomenal! Extra $2 is annoying but worth it. Delicious, filling meal.

    BEST beer stop and continues to be the best even with celiac. Staff has great knowledge, Sams has a great selection!

    They need to get a dedicated fryer! u hate mot being able to eat the chips at Mexican restaurants and even though they brought me warm corn tortillas for the salsa, I was unknowingly charged extra for them. But the veggie fajitas.... Amazing! And the staff is very attentive.

    Like other people have said, its very expensive! Once tax and tip were done I paid $23 for a 14" pizza! I was underwhelmed when I got my pizza because it was very dense and chewy but I still gave four stars because the leftovers (which lasted two more dinners!) were really fantastic reheated in the oven... better than at the restaurant!

    I don't know what it is about gfree pizza crust but so far I've not been a fan. Lillys was a favorite pre celiac diagnosis but the gluten-free crust is just not up to snuff. Very dense and chewy and mine was also dry. otherwise pizza toppings etc are wonderful but for the added price of the gf crust I won't be going back...

    incredible gluten-free buns! I thought they'd just be Udi's but they're waaay better. sweet potato fries and a turkey burger o a gf bun... heaven!

    Yum - just ate here for the first time! The fries are great and I had a lettuce wrapped turkey burger that was amazing! Be careful w add-on sauces and be sure to ask. Veggie burgers have wheat in them.

    I used to work here and the staff is very sympathetic and helpful. Mandel hornchen, panna cotta and some of the french macarons (depending on filling) are gluten-free in the bakery. LOVE the frittatas and fresh ingredients here. Wonderful atmosphere for everyone.

    When I need fries, these are the best. Ditto the strawberry milkshakes! Best place for Celiacs to get fast food and my safest bet.

    My best friend was so excited to take me here b/c it's her favorite place AND Celiac friendly. Falafel on gfree pita is really yummy with no additional cost. Other dishes and sides are clearly labeled and very good!

    Great gluten-free cupcakes! I'm picky about my gfree baked goods but these are delicious. Always two different and interesting flavors (like boston creme pie or creme brulee) to choose from so its not just vanilla! Good gelato too.

  • Jose and Sons

    3 starsFebruary 15, 2014

    327 West Davie Street, Raleigh, NC 27601

    The atmosphere is great and the menu is clearly labeled BUT the guac is marked gluten-free and unless you like spoonfuls of guac sans chips, it's not gluten-free (the chips are in a shared frier and therefore not safe for Celiacs). Our waiter didn't know any of this and couldn't tell me how the chips or food were prepared and only bothered to find out after my friend asked him point blank to go check. That said, the food that IS safe is delicious. Chicharrones and waffles are very strange but delicious - and definitely enough for two meals!

    The wait staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and I feel very comfortable eating here. The chips have a dedicated fryer and are soo good. Love the nachos and tacos - but be sure to ask about marinades etc. on the meats!

    Love love love eating here! it was one of my favorite restaurants before I was diagnosed and still is. Can't go wrong with their soup/salad combo. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable... If soup has croutons on top they'll omit them and voila! Celiac safe meal.
