    Chipotle as a chain is very good and this is the local one we go to most often. They have very friendly staff and are very good about changing their gloves as well as going through the line with us. Highly recommended.

    The food was good and they had a fair amount of items on the gf menu for a burger place. I had the spinach and artichoke dip with chips appetizer. Then I had the Sherwan burger that has peanut butter and jalapeƱos. I had to try it and it was good.

    I had the Chicken Tikka Masala with Mild+ spicy-ness and rice for $12.50. It was very good. Easy menu to order from since GF items are clearly marked.

  • Pei Wei

    Terminal 1 - Lindbergh, Concourse C, 4300 Glumack Drive, Minneapolis, MN 55450

    I had the Pei Wei spicy chicken - the only entree marked GF. Rice, chicken, carrots, and pea pods. It was good. A bit expensive at $9.40, but it is at the airport. It took about 10 min for them to make. I heard them communicate it was GF, but didn't watch the prep to see what that meant for them. You can see the cooking area if you want to monitor.

  • Maize Mexican Grill

    A helpful staff member who was GF gave me the lay of the land - almost everything is GF except for the things made with flour tortillas. I didn't go into handling processes. I ate lunch here for $6 for a dish and drink. Very tasty combination of a thicker corn tortilla with chorizo, lettuce & cheese, . It's a small place with a bustling lunch business, but worth a stop.

  • UConn Dairy Bar

    If you want great ice cream, this is the place to go in Storrs. They have an ingredients list for each flavor and whether they contain wheat or gluten among other allergens. Friendly, helpful staff. You can get a bowl with a child scoop, 1, 2, or 3 scoops. The child scoop is a normal scoop at most other shops. One scoop is about a half pint, so a 2 scoop bowl is about a pint of ice cream. We had mint choc chip, strawberry cheesecake, coffee espresso crunch, choc peanut butter swirl, and black raspberry. It was all great. They also sell the ice cream at the Blue Cow in the UConn student union.

  • Nature's Health Stores

    The person we ordered from was very knowledgable about keeping things gf. All the prepared food available was gf - it is pleasant to have choices. We had a couple of turkey burgers and two turkey and pesto wrap. It took about 15 min to prepare which was fine with us. The food was all very good. Fresh ingredients and a nice combination for each. Cost for 4 to eat one entree each was $41. Very warm staff.

    Very friendly and accommodating staff. They explained what was gf and not and the process to avoid cross contamination. It is a very casual atmosphere. It may be obvious from the name, but they specialize in grilled cheese. We had the club and the turkey Brie (w/o the fig jam). They were both tasty. We also had the Greek god salad. It had fresh ingredients and a good dressing. For the four of us to eat - 2 sandwiches and 2 salads - it was $35. I'd go there again when in Providence.

  • Noodles & Company

    Can request gf noodles and they will do rice noodles. Good food.

  • Dino's Gyros

    2 starsJuly 27, 2014

    856 University Ave SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414

    Great salads, but not fg trained staff. They have the GF items clearly marked on the wall menus, however the staff are not trained in cross contamination. We had to tell them to change their gloves since they were working with pita bread. They were going to use the same tongs to get the grilled chicken as they had used for the non-gf gyro meat. The worker who changed their gloves then slid the salad to another worker to put toppings on and we had to ask them to change their gloves. So it was a lot of work and it flustered the workers since it is not something they were trained in. If they could get their processes and training down for GF, the food was excellent. Until then, we'll be more likely to go to Chipotle where they know how to do GF.

  • Punch Pizza

    Their wood fired GF Pizza is excellent. They have procedures to reduce the chance of cross contamination although the GF pizza is cooked in the same oven and they do make pizza dough there. The wood firing makes some of the best GF pizza I ever tasted.
