    Fantastic food! >90% of their menu can be made gluten free. Their GF paninis (yes, panini) and GF pizza are cooked and prepared separate to prevent cross contamination. They do have a full bar with certain days you can bring your own wine. Worth a trip regardless of how far you need to travel.

    A place for good good gluten free bar-b-q. All the meats are GF and most of their sides are too. Phenomenal wings! The owner and his wife get it and understand GF is not a fad diet for Celiacs. There's talk of a dedicated fryer, cross your fingers. BYOB

    The food us excellent. No GF dedicated menu or Fryer. Ask to speak to the manager for ordering. Tortilla chips at this location are baked. My server was knowledgeable, cautious and concerned for a safe meal. The Manager Diego Hernandez spoke to me at length and in detail about my options for a safe meal. I drove nearly an hour to eat here and will continue driving the distance to eat at this restaurant. I don't leave wondering if the next 5 days are going to be rough.

    The only Option was conch salad. The server was not knowledgeable about GF.

  • Liberty Union Bar and Grill

    5 starsApril 12, 2014

    325 Simpson Dr, Chester Springs, PA 19425

    if you want GF beer or cider and GF wings, this is the place. The wings at Liberty are fried, not breaded and prepared in a dedicated fryer, the best. The other big treat and pleasant surprise was soup, soup that was tomato based and richly flavorful. Two food choices hard to come by; a safe place to frequent. This has become my favorite hang out and my fall back when I don't know what to do for dinner. Steve, the owner is passionate about his business and pays attention. Carl is behind the bar and manager,you cannot find two nicer people. Staff are all knowledgable about GF and trustworthy. I love this place.

  • The Olive Tree Mediterranean Grill

    379 West Uwchlan Avenue, Downingtown, PA 19335

    I was there on an off night (Friday), the chef had left for the evening and the knowledge about what was or could be GF was unclear with the kitchen staff. The only appetizer that was thought to be GF was grilled calamari. I had the Greek village salad and lamb skewers over rice. My meal was fantastic. The service could not have been better.

  • Molly Maguire's Irish Restaurant & Pub

    4 starsApril 12, 2014

    202 East Lancaster Avenue, Downingtown, PA 19335

    Not a lot of traditional Irish dishes but a dedicated menu nonetheless. The chef came out and talked to me three times. Trustworthy. I had the chop with fries (made separately), baked beans and Cole slaw, delicious. The service is questionable at times but I hear they have new management

    So this is what heaven is like. I stumbled on this store and did not want to leave. I had a turkey sandwich that was fantastic. You cannot find a nicer group of people who seem to really want to do a good and right thing. It would be great if they expanded 280 miles East!

    I have eaten here 5 times over the last year. The food is phenomenal, the staff knowledgeable and the atmosphere comfortable. Whenever I am in Pittsburgh, I make my rounds with Big Burrito restaurants, safe, delicious and consistent.

    76 Exton Square Mall, Exton, PA 19341

    Mixed reviews from store to store regarding GF. More often than not I spend time educating because the staff generally don't understand GF. Even though Celiac Disease is not an allergy, I seem to get farther stating I have a bun allergy. Don't order mayo from the food prep line, a spatula is used from a common container and is contaminated. A lesson in food presentation is a necessity here since a fork and knife use on foil yields tears and high potential of contamination from the table surface. If you can watch your food prepared and feel safe, the taste is great and the fries plentiful

    My fajita bowl was very tasty and would return for the same. Be aware, the tortilla chips ARE NOT gluten free, they are cooked in oil contaminated by flour tortillas. Also, I would suggest discussing your food prep at time of ordering e.g., separate pans and utensils.

    Had pancakes, bacon and habanero sausage. the pancakes were fantastic, I had to question if I had been given regular pancakes, that good. the server was great; confident in gluten free options. too bad I found them only hours before flying out SF, would like to have tried many items on the menu - next time for sure!

    First of all, plan to wait outside a minimum of 30 min any of the five days a week they are open (closed Tues & Wed). Regardless of the weather, this place is worth the wait and I mean every minute . AMAZING breakfast, safe and the server was confident and knowledgeable. I'm only sorry I won't be here long enough to return this trip. I met other out of towners who ate there yesterday and back today, it's that good.

    wonderful safe and delicious dining experience. The owner spent a great deal of time at our table; she has her own food issues and knows what she's doing with food prep and preventing cross contamination. gluten Free soy sauce! which meant a LOT of sushi

    6000 North Terminal Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30320

    clearly marked GF options. GF soy sauce and sushi. A number of entrees and soups GF. If you are in or near Terminal E, or have a layover allowing time in the airport, this is the place. The server was knowledgeable and I felt safe to eat here. Extensive wine list and Magners Pear Cider available. Food was fantastic, but don't expect cheap either - worth every penny

    the menu says, " Now 100% GF". I liked everything about the restaurant, food, service, decor and ambiance. The chef/owner came over to the table and enjoyed his company. a place I will frequent when in Rehoboth

    great dining experience and safe! The GF options on the menu were clearly marked. The server knows safety and took great care. Seth the bartender was fantastic and offered a number of GF beers, also knows what he's doing. The staff were very friendly. A place to frequent for sure!!!

  • Ron's Original Bar & Grille

    1 starsJune 01, 2013

    74 East Uwchlan Avenue, Exton, PA 19341

    if you have celiac DO NOT EAT HERE, they are NOT gluten free! It is true there are many options labeled "Gluten Free" on their menu and the ingredients may be gluten free to start but Ron's isn't any different than the faux advertisement that Dominoes pizza had last year. The server told me it depended on my degree of allergy if I could eat there. Seriously?! Ron's is about as clueless and dangerous as a restaurant can be . When I spoke to the manager he said celiac was a whole different issue. more proof they are clueless, you cannot advertise as gluten free and intend to exclude celiacs. Ron's should remove their "gluten free" designation on their menu or learn to serve that same food out of the kitchen they way it is advertised. Shame on you Ron. Actually Ron, it was your manager and your server. And as far as not taking a server seriously and their statements as fact? Hmmm, isn't the server selling the product? More so Ron, shame on you.

    102 Bartlett Avenue, Exton, PA 19341

    Very limited choices here. Seriously, a Mexican restaurant that cannot serve gluten free corn tortilla chips (that means no chips and salsa) or even tacos or enchiladas should rethink how they buy their products -it shouldn't be that hard for a big restaurant chain. There is a Mexican restaurant a few miles away in West Chester where someone with celiac can have all the choices On The Border doesn't offer. Maybe they'll let us know if they get it right, otherwise I'll be driving to West Chester.

    116 N Pottstown Pike, Exton, PA 19341

    I eat here often enough the managers know me by sight because the gluten free entree is delivered separate from the rest of the orders and by the manager. Safe place to eat for all of us celiacs. You want ribs and fries, yes French fries, or a burger on a bun and more French fries with Redbridge beer- this is the spot to dine.

    I don't know this little gastro pub isn't known by my local gluten intolerance group. This is such a great and safe find I plan to be a regular. The server was fun and she gets it, I mean gets gluten free as does the chef. I liked everything about this place, the food, the service, atmosphere, cleanliness and the price

    Everything about this dining experience was right. Staff is knowledgable and comfortable discussing gluten free options. Gluten free pasta is available but I opted for the pork chop and definitely would repeat the choice. Cross contamination is not an issue and i felt completely safe throughout my experience. The pistachio gelato was a nice finish to the meal. Highly recommend this restaurant to my fellow celiacs.

    These people get it and get it right. Everyone I encountered in this small and wonderful restaurant knows and understands gluten free and cross contamination. . Immediately I knew I was in a safe place to eat. The food was fantastic, the service impeccable and the wine choices extensive. Going again next week.

    holy Frijoles! i drove an hour and a half for this meal and will gladly do it again. the food was fantastic. the service was great and almost everything on the menu is gluten free and the server was knowledgeable. highly suggest the flan and a cup of coffee to finish your meal. They are a BYOB, so bring your Tequila.

    111 Garden Golf Blvd, North Wales, PA 19454

    you have to watch your sandwich being made. the same knife used to butter the gluten free bread was also used to butter regular bread. no gluten free soups available. friendly and accommodating but lacking in cross contamination rules, use caution here. i had the grilled cheese and ham sandwich; they use Udi's multi grain. also had the southwest salad without the tortilla strips since they weren't sure if they were gluten free. Food was good. I will only eat here if they're slow

    I found this piece of gastro heaven in my fall 2012 Gluten Free Living and drove 40 miles to taste a taco. Every anticipatory moment of that drive was worth the savory taste of not only a "Pure" taco but a perfect tasting taco. I tried the barbecue pork, hanger steak and steak tacos. EVERYTHING in this house of gastronomic happiness is safe and gluten free. Imagine a restaurant where there is NO worry of cross contamination. Thank you Pure Taco; thank you Ted Schroeder.

    GF in western and northern Michigan is slim pickings at best. Traveling from the UP i found this spot on my GF app and detoured - HAPPY I DID!!! The service was fun, personable and prompt. Better than usual selection of GF items because they not only have GF pizza but GF bread for honest to goodness REAL sandwiches! i had the pizza and ate the entire thing in one sitting, that good

    Hamburger on a good and I mean good gluten free bun. The bun had elasticity to it and was moist, so much so I feared I might have been contaminated by gluten. One of the managers does not eat gluten and found these buns at trader joes. Their burger and excellent safe fries made me feel unlike any of the other diners.

    Maybe I had their gluten free pizza on a off night. Absolutely the worst gluten free pizza I've ever had. The crust was thicker than usual gluten free crust with the middle under cooked throughout and unpleasant to chew. I've had some decent gluten free pizza, this was not one of them. Forced to give a star rating, actual rating is NO stars
