    gluten free options on regular menu

  • BJ's Brewhouse

    5 starsOctober 21, 2012

    12100 Pines Blvd, Pembroke Pines, FL 33025

    Excellent understanding of cross contamination. Made point of opening of new containers of olive oil, ice cream, etc without being asked.

  • Outback Steakhouse

    5 starsOctober 21, 2012

    1823 B. N. Pine Island, Plantation, FL 33322

    Waitress was gf so understood cross contamination concerns. I am on an even more restrictive gf diet right now & Outback was able to accommodate it. GPS said restaurant was on opposite side of street (I reported the problem to Google Maps so hopefully they can correct it) & since restaurant is in strip mall instead of traditional Outback building, it was a little difficult to find.

  • Jason's Deli

    4 starsAugust 05, 2012

    7356 Baltimore Ave., College Park, MD 20740

    It was 5 stars until the menu change to having a disclaimer that people with celiac disease should not eat there - even though the chain had a gluten free menu for years prior to the change.

  • The Greene Turtle

    5 starsAugust 05, 2012

    1113 Beards Hill Rd, Aberdeen, MD 21001

    Gluten free menu - good understanding of cross contamination

  • Bobby's Burger Palace

    5 starsAugust 05, 2012

    7002 Arundel Mills Cir (at Maryland Live! Casino), Hanover, MD 21076

    Food was good. Staff was able to answer or look up the answer to my gluten free questions. Love the dedicated fryers so I can actually eat the fries!

  • Bonefish Grill

    5 starsJuly 26, 2012

    82 Market Street , Gaithersburg,MD 20878

    Excellent gluten free menu...especially if you like seafood. They really understand cross contamination concerns. The manager said that one of the bartenders at this location (Renee) is gluten free & is super sensitive so makes sure everyone on staff understands the importance of gluten free.

  • MOM's Organic Market

    5 starsJuly 16, 2012

    7351 Assateague Dr, Jessup, MD 20794

    This location was expanded & now has an even better selection. Large selection of gluten free food at very competitive prices. Staff is very helpful & carries everyone's groceries to their car for them (unless you say you don't want them too of course). Store is very into green initiatives. They are powered by 100% wind power. They offer year round CFL light bulb & battery recycling. They don't sell bottled water. They recycle as much of the waste produced by the store as possible (ie boxes, etc). They recycled old Christmas lights before & after Christmas last year. This summer, they are collecting shoes (depending on condition, they will be given to local charities or sent to soles for souls for 3rd world countries), old eyeglasses & sunglasses for Lion's Club to be sent to 3rd world countries, & old ripped/torn jeans for recycling at some fiber reuse place out West. I think it is wonderful that a store takes the time & effort to collect, store, & mail these items to help divert them from the landfill & help the less fortunate. Only negative is that they have no wheelchairs or electric carts for disabled customers, even though they are now a fairly large local chain & the store staff say multiple people have requested them.

  • Olive and Sesame

    5 starsJuly 10, 2012

    25 Magothy Beach Rd, Pasadena, MD 21122

    Can accommodate gluten free - order from the Revolution diet menu, which is steamed in a bamboo steamer. Sauces are made in house & staff can tell you what the ingredients are. I know the sweet & sour sauce is gluten free. You can also customize what is in the steamer.

  • Starry Night Bakery & Coffeehouse

    4 starsJuly 10, 2012

    330 One Forty Village Road, Westminster, MD 21157

    Gluten Free Cakes, Cookies, Breads. Gluten free lite fare, vegan options, and sugar free options as well.

    Good knowledge of cross contamination

  • Grotto Pizza

    5 starsJuly 07, 2012

    12407 Coastal Hwy, Ocean City, MD 21842

    Excellent gluten free pizza. I asked a lot of questions about cross contamination & felt like they had a good knowledge (sauce is applied with a hose that does not touch the crust, gluten free pizza baked on special trays in regular oven) & I didn't get sick

  • Outback Steakhouse

    5 starsJuly 07, 2012

    12741 Ocean Gateway, Ocean City, MD 21842

    Typical Outback....good knowledge of cross contamination

  • Burtons Grill

    5 starsJuly 07, 2012

    741 1st Colonial Rd, Virginia Beach, VA 23451

    You need to eat here if you are gluten free! Very knowledgeable. They even have gluten free bread.

  • Brian Boru

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    489 Ritchie Hwy, Severna Park, MD 21146

    Menu has a lot of winter favorites like shepard's pie. Unfortunately, they changed their soup recipe so none of their soups are gf anymore. Desserts from Freedom Bakery.

  • Roots Market

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    16800 Georgia Ave, Olney, MD 20832

    Large gf selection. Helpful staff. This Roots location sells wine.

  • Cheeseburger in Paradise

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    8026 Ritchie Hwy, Pasadena, MD 21122

    Good understanding of cross contamination. Gluten free fryer. They recently added the best appetizer that is available gf - Loaded Homemade Potato Chips.

  • Sweet 27 Gluten Free Bakery and Cafe

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    123 W 27th St, Baltimore, MD 21218

    I have never seen so many cupcake flavors in one place in my life - and all gluten free!!! I didn't realize how much lunch food they sell here until I visited after having dinner at Meet 27 next door.

  • Meet 27

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    127 W 27th St, Baltimore, MD 21218

    This was the first completely gf restaurant that I have visited. Lots of options & no concern about cross contamination. I actually liked the sweet potato fries better than the regular fries (& I don't even usually like sweet potatoes).

  • Hellas Restaurant and Lounge

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    8498 Veterans Hwy, Hanover, MD 21108

    Great gluten free menu. Good understanding of cross contamination.

  • Pizzazz Tuscan Grille

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    711 Eastern Ave, Baltimore, MD 21202

    I didn't get sick but service was slower than expected.

  • Fogo de Chao

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    600 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202

    I could make a meal of just the bread at Fogo de Chao. I think next time I go I will just get the amazingly huge salad bar to leave more room for bread! Make sure you tell the waiter that you are gf because 2 of the meats contain gluten (a sausage & something else cooked in beer - those two skewers come around together though) & they will alert the runner of those meats not to give it to you.

  • Outback Steakhouse

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    7744 Governor Ritchie Hwy., Glen Burnie, MD 21061

    Good gf menu. Recommend call ahead seating on Friday & Saturday nights.

  • Bonefish Grill

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    6711 Governor Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie,MD 21061

    I highly recommend the Lily's chicken - I have never gotten sick when I order it. They don't offer the chocolate creme brulee every day but if it is on the menu when you go, you must order it!

  • Outback Steakhouse

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    15107 Sweitzer Lane, Laurel, MD 20707

    This location is not as busy as some of the other locations but recommend call ahead on Friday nights. Great gf menu.

  • Roots Market

    4 starsJune 30, 2012

    5805 Clarksville Square Dr, Clarksville, MD 21029

    Excellent gf selection

  • LongHorn Steakhouse

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    7059 Arundel Mills Cir, Hanover, MD 21076

    Good variety on gf menu...except for desserts

  • Uno Chicago Grill

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    10300 Little Patuxent Pkwy #3030, Columbia, MD 21044

    Good gf pizza. I recommend the takeout special for 2 gf pizzas for $13.99 (compared to 1 for $12). They will even give you one frozen if you want to save the 2nd one for another day. Or you can get 1 gf and one gluten filled thin crust for $13.99 if you are feeding a gluten eater too.

  • P.F. Chang's

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    The Plaza at the Mall in Columbia, 10300 Little Patuxent Pkwy Suite 3020, Columbia, MD 21044

    I am so happy that they added some of the deleted menu items back. It makes the gf menu more complete. Good understanding of cross contamination & different plates for gf dishes. I also like that the gf menu is part of the regular menu so you aren't asking for a different menu or holding something different that everyone else in your party (and can see the prices).

  • Carrabba's

    4 starsJune 30, 2012

    4430 Long Gate Pkwy., Ellicott City, MD 21043

    Carrabba's has good food & I don't usually get sick. Make sure you confirm with the waiter that they are not going to use the grill baste on your food/cook on the grill since it contains gluten (they can cook it separately for gf entrees - as long as I make sure they do, I don't get sick). They could use a more exciting gf dessert - vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce & nuts is not very exciting. Call ahead seating is recommended - especially on Friday & Saturday nights. This location does different call ahead than the Outback that shares the parking lot in that you can cut off half the wait time with the Carrabba's call ahead but all the wait time at Outback.

  • Ruby Tuesday

    5 starsJune 30, 2012


    Staff is willing to help. However, if you are in a hurry, print off the gf menu at home since they have to go online in the restaurant and print them off so it takes extra time - the gf menus are not ready to go.

  • Trader Joe's

    4 starsJune 30, 2012

    6610 Marie Curie Dr. (Int. of 175 & 108), Elkridge, MD 21075

    Lots of gluten free options....dislike that so many of them say they make contain wheat

  • Chipotle

    4 starsJune 30, 2012

    6181 Old Dobbin Lane, Columbia, MD 21045

    They are willing to accommodate my request to change gloves (since I don't know if they touched a flour tortilla in the gloves) but sometimes it takes several attempts to explain what I want them to do due to language barriers.

  • Chick-fil-A

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    4905 Executive Park Dr, Columbia, MD 21045

    The management at this location is especially sensitive to the needs of people with food allergies.

  • Chick-fil-A

    5 starsJune 30, 2012

    6375 Dobbin Rd, Columbia, MD 21045

    The grilled chicken nuggets or the grilled chicken breast are good. Love that the fries are actually gluten free. Staff is very careful when alerted to an allergy.

  • Great Sage

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    5809 Clarksville Square Dr, Clarksville, MD 21029

    Good understanding of gluten free. Restaurant is vegetarian so don't come here expecting a steak! The food is good though.

  • Outback Steakhouse

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    4420 Long Gate Parkway, Ellicott City, MD 21043

    Recommend call ahead seating - especially on Friday & Saturday nights. Staff is knowledgeable about cross contamination. I have eaten here numerous times & not gotten sick. Wish they had a GF Bloomin Onion though.

  • Uno Chicago Grill

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    4470 Long Gate Pkwy, Ellicott City, MD 21043

    The best deal at Uno's is the take out special for $13.99...you can get 2 of the gf pizzas (or 1 gf and one non-gf if you are with a gluten eater)....especially since just one pizza is $12 if you eat in. They will also give you one or both of the pizzas frozen if you want to save one for later & eat one now.

  • Bertucci's

    4 starsJune 29, 2012

    9081 Snowden River Parkway, Columbia MD 21044

    Could use a few more options on the gf menu...like pizza....I usually get the chicken & steak combination & save the chicken for lunch the next day.

  • Jason's Deli

    4 starsJune 29, 2012

    8874 McGaw Rd, Columbia, MD 21045

    I am super sensitive & have never gotten sick at this location. It is important that that they include the allergy designation on the order. I am super disappointed that the menu now says celiacs shouldn't eat at Jason's deli though.

  • Tino's Italian Bistro

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    8775 Centre Park Dr, Columbia, MD 21045

    Gluten free pasta in a restaurant...good knowledge of cross contamination

  • Pei Wei

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    6478 Dobbin Center Way Suite A, Columbia, MD 21045

    Pei Wei has a special station to make all the gf food & special gf plates. One of my favorite take out places. I like the online ordering for take out so you can see that the gluten free was added to the order.

  • LongHorn Steakhouse

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    8650 Snowden River Pkwy, Columbia, MD 21045

    Call ahead seating is recommended - especially on the weekend.

  • Chicken Out

    5 starsJune 29, 2012

    6270 Columbia Crossing Dr, Columbia Crossing, Columbia, MD 21045

    Lots of gluten free options. You need to make sure the person who enters your order places an allergy alert so that they change gloves, etc.
