    5206 Village Pkwy, Rogers, AR 72758

    I left after three tables seated after me had drinks, and no one had spoken to me. This was at least at 10 minute wait without anyone speaking to me, and the restaurant was less than half full. Who can tell if the food's good, if you're never served?

  • Table Mesa Bistro

    5 starsJuly 12, 2014

    Ste. 203, 401 West Watson Street, Fayetteville, AR 72701

    Upscale Mexican bistro with a higher-end bar. Their gluten-free menu is limited, but it is certified celiac-approved. If cross-contamination is a less severe issue, many menu items do not include wheat or gluten, but they are fried in the same fryers or prepared in the same areas as gluten-containing items, and some cross-contamination will occur.

    Lots of options on the separate menu! VERY good food. Service is slow, but this is old-fashioned cooking.

  • Silver Dollar City

    5 starsJune 30, 2014

    399 Silver Dollar City Railroad, Branson, MO 65616

    We've been to a number of theme parks where food was a challenge. Silver Dollar City was NOT a problem. Due to the volume of food served, MANY of the restaurants and food stands are completely gluten free. The staff everywhere is friendly and helpful. We're in the Valley Road area, and four places, Buckshot's Skillet Cookery, Frisco Popcorn, Hatfield's Tater Patch, and Tater Twist were either completely gf or had several gf options. You can also check menus ahead of time on the park's app, to make decisions ahead of time.

    717 Branson Landing, Branson, MO 65616

    Most if the items on the gf menu are steamer pots for 1 or 2. If that's what you want, there are quite a few to choose from. There are a couple of salads and a few grilled shrimp or fish options. Only 2 kids' options: boiled shrimp and a kids' steamer pot. Prices are on the high side. The steamer pots start at $25 and go up. I probably would have rated it $$$. However, the staff was great, and the food was, too.

  • Sweet D'z Express Bakery

    5 starsJune 27, 2014

    1912 S Walton Blvd, Bentonville, AR 72712

    Head baker is gluten- and dairy-free. They can do dairy-, egg-, soy-, nut-, and gluten-free custom cakes, and they have gf cupcakes and cinnamon rolls. Excellent flavor!

  • P.F. Chang's

    5 starsJune 27, 2014

    2203 Promenade Boulevard, Fayetteville, AR 72703

    Gluten-free is a separate section of their regular menu. They have gf soy sauce. They will prepare any order in a separate area. They have special plates and red condiment ramekins that are all gf only. They have one dessert, a chocolate ganache with berries and raspberry sauce. It is very rich, and it is plenty for two or three.

  • Fish City Grill

    5 starsJune 20, 2014

    2203 Promenade Blvd, Rogers, AR 72758

    Good selection, with many options to get grilled or blackened seafood, instead of fried. We've eaten here for years, and it's nice to find that they have a gf menu! Like the other review says, it can be noisy, if you don't go during off hours. That's just the style of place. There's a well-stocked bar on one side of the restaurant with multiple screens, almost invariably showing sports.

    120 S. Meridian, Oklahoma City, OK 73107

    Asked for the gf menu when we walked in. They have a whole notebook with different menus for a wide variety of allergens, updated with menu changes every two months. It was well-organized. The restaurant itself was clean, with a good atmosphere. We went in just after the lunch rush on a weekday. We ate at RoTB many times prior to finding out my son and I had gluten issues. The food is more Southwest/Tex-Mex than traditional Mexican. Lots of bright, spicy flavors and fresh items. I got the Mango Chicken Salad, and my son had the BBQ-Chipotle Salmon. Both were very good.

  • Iron Starr

    3700 N Shartel Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73118

    A very popular, local, award-winning barbecue place, locals will know the name immediately. Visitors may not. Iron Starr specializes in a more modern, upscale experience. They have a dedicated menu. The selections are limited, but very good. Ironically, the BBQ sauce is not gf, but they make this very clear. Our server was knowledgeable, and there were no hassles.

  • Jimmy's Egg Restaurant

    5 starsJune 15, 2014

    5012 N Classen Blvd, Oklahoma City, OK 73118

    Jimmy's typically has a three flat-top setup: one for eggs, one for potatoes, and one for pancakes/French toast. Check at your local spot, but we've been to several, and they all do this. There are lots of omelets and breakfast combos (eggs, meat, potatoes, bread). Just tell them you are gluten free, and they'll normally let you pick a fruit bowl. My son is highly sensitive to gluten, and we've never had a problem.

  • Cantina Laredo

    5 starsJune 15, 2014

    1901 Northwest Expy, Oklahoma City, OK 73118

    We've eaten here several times. The food is very good. They have several items that are fine as-is, and they are happy to accommodate, if you explain gluten issues and request items be made with corn tortillas.

  • Mama Roja

    4 starsJune 15, 2014

    9219 Lake Hefner Pkwy, Oklahoma City, OK 73120

    We were visiting family, so we gave this app a try with some restaurants during a recent trip. Mama Roja does have a separate gf menu (request it at the hostess' stand), and, as with many Mexican restaurants, quite a few of the options are gluten free. The do NOT have dedicated fryers for gf foods, so even though guacamole, Queso, and other dips are on the gf menu, you'll have to request warm corn tortillas (like you'd get with fajitas), not chips. My son was very upset when we got our food (fish tacos, with grilled shrimp), and it had regular fried fish in the tacos. I grabbed a manager, and he asked 'did you tell the waiter it was gluten free?' Yeah, we had gluten free menus, had asked 4-5 questions about gluten free items, etc. It had been a long wait, and my son was starving. I felt really bad, because he started to cry. If he hadn't taken a look in his taco, he'd have been throwing up all night, guaranteed. They did bring us new plates quickly, and I saw the manager stand by the kitchen window to make sure they were done right and came right to us. They offered to comp us dessert, but... no real gf dessert choices <sigh>. Overall, the restaurant was cool, and the food was good. We watched World Cup matches while we ate. My son is highly gluten sensitive, and he didn't have a single issue, so we know they made things right. I just felt like I had to make a much bigger deal about this than I would at our normal restaurants.
