About Me

Also have discovered multiple food allergies.


  • In-N-Out Burger

    4 starsJuly 14, 2015

    8285 W. Bell Rd., Peoria, AZ 85382

    I have learned to be careful with the grilled onions when ordering my protein style burger. We had to verify that the cashier marked the order appropriately. He had forgotten, and had to go back to tell the cook staff. Otherwise, it was a successful dining out experience.

  • Jason's Deli

    5 starsJuly 14, 2015

    17275 North 79th Ave Suite 100, Glendale, AZ 85308

    They have a good set of choices for gluten free eating. We learned that they need to mark it at the register. You will see on your receipt that it was marked. They wash their hands and change gloves as well as have a separate prep area for gluten free dishes. My salad came in a separate, covered container with a sticker on it. I did not get sick and am sensitive to cross contamination.

  • Icelandic Fish and Chips

    They have lots of options for folks who are gluten free. They do use spelt in recipes, so you need to watch for that. I ordered their oven baked fish meal with cod two nights in a row and it was delicious. I did not have any reactions.

  • Chipotle

    Chipotle will actually change all utensils and gloves before serving you if you tell them you have a problem with gluten. They even went to the back to get untouched lettuce for my bowl. This chain was very accommodating to my multiple allergies. I did not get sick after eating here.

  • Haunted Hamburger

    4 starsJanuary 27, 2015

    410 Clark Street, Jerome, AZ 86331

    I have been there twice now and got sick both times. I agree the food is delicious, but for someone who is super sensitive I can say that the burger and potato did not work for me. I tried it twice because the first time I went there were other things that could have made me sick. Like the last reviewer I wasn't sure about our waitress - when I asked her whether or not buns were grilled on the same grill as the meat she hesitated, then said "no." I probably should have listened to my instincts at that point. If you are super sensitive, you should get chef confirmation about the grilled meats.

  • Tea Lite Cafe

    3 starsJanuary 23, 2015

    7000 E Mayo Blvd #1084, Phoenix, AZ 85054

    I gave this a 3, because I had a reaction - it might not be their fault though. I was a bit too trusting. The food was delicious. They primarily use rice noodles. In terms of meat, chicken is possibly the only safe choice. Their pork and beef are marinated in soy sauce. If I were to go back, I would need to ask them if they grill their chicken, and possibly vegetables, on the same equipment as they grill their other meats.

  • Smashburger

    5 starsJanuary 20, 2015

    5870 W Thunderbird Rd, Glendale, AZ 85306

    I had the Avocado chicken burger, but was told the fries are fried in the same fryer as the onion haystacks. They offered me some raw veggies or a side salad. They also have an allergen menu on their website, however the burgers are marked using their normal buns. Now that they use Udi's buns it's hard to tell which burgers are safe, but it can be used for all the sides. If the manager and staff are informed they are celiac friendly, and the manager here told me they were getting more and more training about allergens. Hope that's chain-wide!

  • California Fresh Market

    5 starsNovember 29, 2014

    555 5 Cities Dr, Pismo Beach, CA 93449

    This is a great supermarket. It has "normal foods" right alongside many of the standard gluten free options. I felt like in gluten free categories it had an even better selection than other healthy-type grocery stores. I'm not sure how the prices compare to some place like "Whole Foods" but it was a one-stop shop at the beginning of our vacation. It has a deli and restaurant-type area as well but I didn't try that.

  • Bunn Thai Bistro

    5 starsNovember 29, 2014

    968 West Grand Avenue, Grover Beach, CA 93433

    Yummy food - knowledgeable waitstaff. He even caught it when I asked for Thai Iced Tea that I needed coconut milk due to dairy issues. I was so impressed!

  • Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen

    5 starsOctober 20, 2014

    1855 Arizona 89A, Sedona, AZ 86336

    For awhile it seemed like I was reacting to their pizzas. But something must have changed in the last couple of months because I can eat there without a reaction. I am so glad because they have some of the best crusts! I have had to cut back on dairy and even though their vegan pizza's don't look wonderful it was still delicious.

  • Streets of New York

    5 starsOctober 20, 2014

    39508 North Daisy Mountain Dr, Phoenix, AZ 85086

    A great crust. My sister and I split the pizza. I am very sensitive and did not get sick at all after eating here.

  • Taj Mahal Restaurant & Lounge

    5 starsOctober 20, 2014

    124 North Montezuma Street, Prescott, AZ 86301

    Good food, our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. They were willing to fry me up some pappadums in a separate fryer. I am very sensitive and didn't get sick.

  • Two Sisters Thai Food

    5 starsSeptember 30, 2014

    13035 N Cave Creek Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85022

    Pad Thai & Thai Iced Tea was great - staff was knowledgeable. They have a gluten free certified soy sauce on hand if you need it. I am generally very sensitive and I didn't get sick.

  • Tropical Dreams Ice Cream

    5 starsSeptember 30, 2014

    109 S Main St, Cottonwood, AZ 86326

    While the owner doesn't necessarily understand celiac disease or cross contamination, he is very willing to get a new scoop if asked. And he knows exactly what is in every flavor of ice creams.

  • SanTan Brewing Company

    5 starsSeptember 09, 2014

    8 South San Marcos Place, Chandler, AZ 85225

    A great menu for gluten free folks, knowledgeable staff. I've eaten here twice and have not been sick either time. My food always comes on a different colored plate than the folks I am with.

  • California Pizza Kitchen

    5 starsSeptember 09, 2014

    10150 Stockdale Hwy., Bakersfield, CA 93311

    Excellent food, friendly & knowledgeable staff. The manager was generous and helpful in putting me at ease. They know how to deal with cross contamination.

  • Benvenutos

    5 starsJune 20, 2014

    300 S Koeller St, Oshkosh, WI 54902

    Wow! Since I am sensitive to cc I told the host that I had a wheat allergy and the waiter already was aware when he came to the table. The food was amazing, the staff was wonderful, and I didn't get sick.

  • California Pizza Kitchen

    5 starsJune 03, 2014

    10100 Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85253

    All their dough is made in a different facility and shipped in. They have only rice flour in their kitchens to use as they work with all the dough. When they cook a gluten free pizza the worker wears blue gloves and they encase the pizza in foil so that it does not come into contact with any other pizzas. I am super sensitive and did not have a reaction after eating here. Our waiter was trained and kept us informed on their practices through out the meal.

  • Red Robin

    3055 Gateway Blvd, Prescott, AZ 86303

    I have gone twice without incident and I seem to be particularly sensitive to cc. The second time I made sure to inquire about the fries and was told that they have four separate fryers - one is set aside for food allergies.
