  • Cheezy's Pizza & Subs

    1637 E Joppa Rd, Towson, MD 21286

    12" crust comes from Still Riding Pizza and is plenty big for two people to share. They have protocols in place to prevent cross contamination. Pizzas can get pricey with toppings (mine was $20) but they offer delivery which is a little luxury rarely found. Not the absolute best pizza in the world, but definitely better than some other chains I've had. Read my full review on my blog:

    10 W Pennsylvania Ave, Towson, MD 21204

    Thai One On is located near downtown Towson and has great outdoor seating (weather permitting). While the waiter seemed confused as to what was gluten/dairy free, the chef confirmed that the pad Thai, curries, and the pad pik sod. I opted for the green curry with brown rice which came in a generous portion and was very good. Read my full review on my blog:

    Entire menu is gluten and dairy free so cross-contamination is nonexistent. Choose between a rice/noodle/salad bowl and then proceed to add toppings "Chipotle-style." Loved my chicken bowl with green curry sauce, pickled vegetables and brown rice which was flavorful and fresh. They have options for vegans which are noted on their menu.

    1606 K St NW, Washington, DC 20006

    They offer gluten-free pizzas on Smart Flour Foods pizza crust and stock Daiya and GF beers for those interested. All but three of their specialty pizzas can me made gluten-free and all ingredients (minus the meatballs) can be selected from their make-your-own menu. I found the pizza to be solid by GF standards, but not the absolute best I've had. The location is conveniently located near the White House, National Mall and the Farragut Square metro station.

    While spending the day at the zoo, I stopped by their various food vendors looking for GF options. I happened to notice that the Italian Kitchen at Market Square at Panda Plaza offers a 7" gluten-free pizza for $7.50. The pizzas come in cheese, pepperoni and "specialty" and are made to order. There is an additional 10 minute wait to cook these pizzas. Given the heat of the day, I did not personally try one but thought it worth noting that there are options available.Other options around the park include bottled juices, water, fresh cut fruit, and additional food offerings (did not inquire about other options).

  • Miss Shirley's Cafe

    513 West Cold Spring Lane, Baltimore, MD 21210

    Lured in by the promise of pancakes that were both gluten and dairy free. The pancakes were amazing and did not disappoint in the least. The portion is pretty huge so come hungry and the staff are attentive and knowledgeable about individual needs. See my full review here:

    Phillips has an extensive gluten-free menu and can easily accommodate my duel dairy intolerance. My server was knowledgeable but brought out a chef to speak with me to make sure my meal was prepared correctly. Had the crab cakes with roasted potatoes and spinach which were delicious.

    Restaurant located inside Orlando International Airport Hyatt Regency. Gluten free menu items clearly marked with GF symbol and many options can be made dairy free. I enjoyed the lentil chili which was both gluten/dairy free and came with tortilla chips.

  • Anyestang's Little Tibet

    415 East 4th Street, Bloomington, IN 47408

    Great option for gluten-free dining as the menus are labeled to indicate items' gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian status. The outdoor patio is serine and the food is very fresh. Portions are generous for the price and they offer delivery and carry-out. For more information, check out my blog review:

  • LaRosa's Pizzeria

    7691 Montgomery Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45236

    Had a great gluten-free pizza here. Their crust and sauce do not contain dairy and the menu highlights gluten-free toppings. The pizza is big enough for one hungry person or could be split for lighter appetites. Their restaurant is GREAT kitchens accredited by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.
