This is our go-to restaurant since it is so close to where we live. The gluten free menu is pretty extensive, although they do not offer gluten free buns and do not have a dedicated fryer. Half of the waitstaff seem to be knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination and the other half don't even seem to know what gluten is. Despite that we have mostly good experiences when eating here. However,no place is perfect and we have had negative experiences as well. One time they gave my husband the wrong pizza crust which had him in the bathroom for a half hour in the middle of our meal. They swore up and down there was no way it could have been the wrong crust but that is the only time he has been sick when we ate here. The second negative experience was today when we tried to go there for a nice Mother's Day meal. I'm pretty sure we have been here after church before but today they were serving a buffet brunch and were thus not serving their regular menu. Therefore, we could not eat here at all as my husband is celiac and 2 of our 3 kids are gluten intolerant. My husband said it felt like we were being discriminated against because they did not have any gluten free options available to serve us. I'm sure the buffet had meat and vegetables but buffets are not celiac friendly because of cross contamination. Supposedly a family member of someone high up in this restaurant has celiac disease so you would think they would be more accomodating to celiac folk. It will probable be quite a while before we go back.

They are sooo good. Taste and texture is almost identical to gluten containing cupcakes. We got a dozen ninja turtle cupcakes for my son's b-day party and they were absolutely adorable. The decorater did an awesome job. They are a bit pricey so we only get stuff from here for special occasions but whatever we get is awesome.

The best gluten free pizza I have tasted. If you have dairy allergies as well they have Daiya cheese. It is a bit pricey but it is worth it in my opinion. Most of the staff actually seem knowledgeable about food allergies.

Heard really good things about this restaurant so we decided to check it out since it is closer to us than Five Guys. It was nice being able to order a gluten free bun instead of just a lettuce wrap, which made the burger more filling and less messy. Kids meals are actually more expensive than most sit down restaurants which is rather annoying and they don't even offer tomatoes as a vegetable topping. Actually, their burgers don't seem to be customizable, except for leaving cheese or sauce off. All in all we though it was okay but I agree with another reviewer who said they would rather go to Red Robin.

This is our go-to place when eating out. The manager always comes out to verify our order and double check any food allergies. I love that they have a dedicated fryer so we can have the fries (without the seasoning). The gluten-free buns are actually really good as well. They are a bit denser than regular buns but definitely don't crumble like some gluten-free baked goods do. We eat here a lot and only once has my hubby (who is celiac) had problems. We didn't have the greatest waitress that night though. Overall this is a pretty safe place to eat.

We go here a lot, mostly because it's our quickest option when eating out. The risk for cross-contamination can be pretty high, but we ask them to change their gloves. I think we are even going to ask them to use foil to heat up the corn tortillas from now on. If you are super sensitive though it probably isn't the safest place to eat.

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Lincoln. The menu items aren't exactly kid-friendly but we make it work if we come here with the kids. I love that despite having only a handful of menu options to begin with he always has a gluten-free option. We haven't had an issue with cross-contamination yet. We always feel great after eating here.

The gluten free pizza tastes just as good as their regular pizza (which I had a couple times prior to going gluten free) but they only come in 1 size and are pretty pricey. I was still hungry after just the pizza. If I ever go back I'll have to get a salad in order to actually feel satisfied, which will mean the meal will cost $20. At that rate I might as well just go to a steakhouse.

We were not impressed. The gluten-free menu is very basic and they don't have a dedicated fryer so we couldn't even get fries. The only side options were cottage cheese or a salad, no kid friendly side options at all. This place was recommended to us because the owner's wife has celiac's disease so the staff is well trained to avoid cross-contamination. My husband felt sick after eating here so we will not be going back.
