When ordering here, I was told that the French fries are gluten free since they are not fried in the same fryer as everything else. I didn’t get sick, so I’d say they’re pretty safe. I gave 3 stars because the menu really doesn’t offer too much for GF.

The Gluten-free options are ok and I have been here without a problem. However, I have gotten sick from the gluten-free pizza and I wouldn’t trust it during a busy movie.

I love the Alamo and have not gotten sick from the popcorn, beef or vegan burger with gluten free bun (not toasted), or salads but I just got sick from the French fries. They have a separate fryer for just for the fries so I took the chance of eating the fries (clearly mistake in retrospect), but they must use the same oil because I got glutened.

I believe Alamo has come a long way with their GF menu and prep. I have gotten sick here before, but that was a mistake on my part. I have never been sick from their gluten- free pizza. I get the brussel sprout pizza often, it’s delicious! Try to get there early to discuss your options with the wait staff.

Be careful here. Bartender said many gluten free foods. Fries and wings, etc fried in own separate fryer. While this is true, the oil is combined with all fryers oil and filtered every night and then put back into Fryers the next day. This totally wouldn’t be safe for a person with Celiac disease. Speak with manager on all supposedly gluten free food!!

My daughter has celiac disease. She ate a gluten free pizza here last night and was glutened. She threw up twice and felt sick for hours after consuming the pizza. Cross contamination seems to be an issue here.

They recently overhauled their processes to be much better about cross contamination. But the servers’ knowledge is a little spotty, so you have to make sure they ask the kitchen.

These guys have really stepped up their game. They have an entire Vegan section on the menu, the menu gives options for GF bread and pizzas too. What I like most is that they have done a super job making sure the staff is knowledge about celiac disease. They will adjust your meal to accommodate your specific dietary restrictions/allergies/needs. Great job guys!! I love going there now and enjoying a wonderful meal during a flick without fear of getting sick.

Truffle popcorn tested positive for gluten with our Nima sensor so we did not eat it. Waiter was very confused which items contained gluten. He recommended a buffalo cauliflower dish that was breaded and fried in a shared fryer.

I love this theater. I agree with the others the pizza wasn’t great I love the loaded fries but sometime I can get sick from them so I don’t get them often. I love getting the salads or the burger without the bun.

Amazing GF buns for the burgers, almost all can be made GF. Great to find a movie theater that can serve quality food, and it’s a bonus that it’s Gluten Free!

Our go-to place for an enjoyable GF veggie small pizza—also can get one with meat. Crust is decent. GF ciders available, too.

The menu has indicators for GF - that being said, there are only two items on the menu that are GF - the popcorn and the chips and queso. Pretty slim pickings considering they offer sandwiches, salads, pizzas etc. I’m assuming they may be able to remove the gluten items from offerings such as salad but since you’re eating in the dark and ordering via whispers I wouldn’t chance it.

The staff was helpful. I had the pizza with Brussels Sprouts, bacon and goat cheese. It was delicious and I had no problem afterward. It is so nice to be able to go to a movie and actually order off the menu, eat truly great food and not get sick!

We had a lengthy conversation with the waitress regarding our gluten allergies and I felt confident that things would be taken care of properly. However, after eating part of a slice, she ran out to inform us that the pizza wasn't gluten free. Had an unsatisfying conversation with the manager after. Will not be eating there again!

I’ve emailed with the Communications Manager and he noted that the fries are fried in a shared fryer — therefore, unsafe for a Celiac/intolerant person. However, chips and queso, gf buns, pizza, and just veggie/fruit plate are some of my go to items and I never have issues.

Great drink menu, GF pizza (brussel sprout is surprisingly good), burgers, popcorn (get the truffled parm!), loaded or queso fries, & root beer float are all delish!

I have been here numerous times. They claim to have a dedicated fryer for fries. Out of the four times I have eaten here, I have gotten sick twice. It's the luck of the draw when eating dinner here. I alerted the manager the first time with no response. So, why do I keep going here? It's the blackberry-pear cider. It's sooo yummy. After drinking a few I realize I need food... hence the taking chances.

Didn't try much (ate earlier) but pleasantly surprised to see as many GF & Vegetarian options on the menu (pizza/buns). Would suggest getting there with time to spare before the movie to ask staff any questions. That being said I didn't eat much, so can't say it's great and I highly doubt it's a safe kitchen option for celiacs. (Lakeline theater)

New Belgian Glutiny Pale Ale was the one beer they had. I had the BBQ Chicken and Onions 12 inch gluten-free pizza which was very good and not so much I felt over filled. It was mid-afternoon so I was able to talk to the cook and asked what he felt he did the best. They carry GF buns for burgers as well. Will be back the next time in town!

They have huge issues with cross contamination. On their GF menu, it says that the fries are GF, and I asked the waiter if they are fried in the same fryer that cooks all the other gluten containing items. He said yes and argued with me that it doesn't matter and that fries are gluten free because they are just potatoes. I have tried their GF pizza several times, and got sick every single time because it's cooked with all the other regular pizzas. Don't even bother eating here if you have Celiac.

I ordered a GF pizza, one which had fried rosemary on it. Thankfully the fried rosemary isn't coated in any breading and they fried it separately from gluten containing foods for me. the only downside is it's $2.00 extra for the GF crust but I will say it was crispy and cooked well (unlike some other GF pizzas I've had). We also ordered popcorn, they were nice enough to split it into two bowls so my dad could have butter while I could have mine without.

Very helpful staff! Helped my husband & son be able to enjoy a movie out together safely while on vacay! They checked to make sure of the popcorn oil (as our little boy is GF & peanut free as well) & also checked the on the lemonade! They did have a GF menu, but the options don't sound completely "safe" for Celiac disease, so they stuck to popcorn instead of risking it.

I always make sure to talk to the waiter before the movie starts about my dietary needs. I've gotten pizza the past couple of times and no CC. There are limited options but the food is good overall. I don't go see movies anywhere else, even if I just order popcorn because of the atmosphere and funny clips before the movies.

The whole concept sounds good but it's just super distracting. I got the gf pizza and asked for no pepperoni and it came with pepperoni. It was super greasy and loaded with garlic. And to top it all off, I was sick by the end of the movie. Save your money. Go to a regular movie theater and get good food elsewhere beforehand.

Love this place for the movies old and new but so far not a huge fan of the menu. The first time I went I had the popcorn because I was so scared to get sick. Second time I had the pizza and it was so incredibly greasy me and my husband both felt sick after eating it. He has had other foods and loved them but he does not have a gluten intolerance like me. Maybe next time I'll try a salad but never again will I try the pizza! Even though it wasn't a gluten issue I still would not recommend because it was seriously a mess of grease. Yuck. I really wanted to try the fries but the waiter said everything was fried in the same fryers so the menu is limiting to salad and popcorn. So over eating salad every time I go out!

Alamo has some great food, and gives a unique movie watching experience. But I feel like their menu cod make it a little easier to identify GF items. Staff are always helpful though.

I've gotten served wheat THREE times. It's a great atmosphere, and love the concept, but serving supposed "gluten-free" food, in the dark, is a bad idea in general. The last go round, my hatch chili fries had a few chicken nuggets at the bottom of the pan! Not lying. The managers have always been very nice when the episodes have happened in past, but the truth is my life (I'm Epipen allergic to wheat) depends on their adherence to strict standards in their kitchen to keep their customers safe. Thus far, even after alerting the manager to my cross-contamination on other visits, I repeatedly have been exposed. So, again, great movies- life-threatening, (in my case) lax attention, to serving gluten-free!

I love the Drafthouse! The pizzas are outstanding, and they have gluten free buns for burgers/sandwiches. The staff is friendly and helpful, and are willing to sub. A GF bun in place of gluten items for many gluten menu items. As a bonus, there are plenty of naturally GF foods on the menu, like their loaded French fries and their chips and queso. The food is delicious and I love the array of options!

Love Alamo. Their gluten free pizza is great. I could live on their bottomless popcorn (the best deal for your money on their menu). Have not ordered a burger but glad to see they finally have local oven buns. You can also order cider or omission beer. Not sure I wouldn't change it to $$ since it gets pricey with the (slightly higher than normal) GF upcharge on the crust.

I just went there (March 17, 2014). I was nervous about getting sick, but I asked the waitress (Gabbie I believe was her name), she was so nice and very understanding and accommodating. We ordered the French fries as an appetizer, I asked if they were fried in the same oil as other foods like wings, etc. she told me that she believed they were separate but she was going to have the kitchen fry my order in a completely separate fryer. I got the chicken Caesar salad and a salted caramel shake. Everything was beyond delicious. I didn't get sick at all. I know they also have gluten free pizzas as well and know others that have not gotten sick from eating them. I will try that next time. I hope this helps all of you celiacs!!

Gluten free pizza and fries are delicious! Just make sure your waiter/waitress reminds the cook to cook the crust before they put the toppings on and then again after toppings are added. I have had to send it back a couple of times.
