We were in town for a college visit. Staff was very knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination. No one had any reactions. We felt so comfortable we ate there twice!

They know how to handle food for is Celiacs, and take it seriously. One of the girls who works there also has Celiac and went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. Good food, great care, and I feel safe ordering here.

Separate gluten free menu for items that are gluten free. Was able to substitute out the toast that came with my meal for another side without an extra charge. The food was great.

Tried this restaurant based on reviews. Stopped in for take out and I told them several times gf. When I got our food I checked to make sure gf. One meal had bread sitting on food. They apologized and gave me all new food. Made us nervous. In the end food was good and no issues after getting new food.

We love the food (especially the turkey) and can get dairy free as well as gluten free. I wish we could order more plant-based foods there. We'd go more if it wasn't such a risk compromising my health.

We have been to the Bandana in Cape Girardeau MO twice and the one in Arnold once.. Both locations were great. They took the "Allergy" seriously. We had great experiences all times. The most recent time we were there they caught an accidental slip. The staff in back accidentally put the bread on the plate. The waitress asked us to make sure it was an allergy as I had just said we are all gluten free. My fault on that it won't happen again. But when said yes a young man came to the table and said I am very sorry but we need to remake all your meals as bread touched them. I was impressed I know some places that would just take the bread off and not say a word. They remade our meals and all was well. The manager and waitress both apologized. several times. We explained that we understood but we were happy they had fixed the problem. We did not get sick. Life is good.. The food was excellent and there are many gf options. We love Bandana.

I got glutened. It wasn't entirely their fault, but I wish they were better trained. I didn't realize the family meal we ordered would be on one platter and the garlic bread would be on top of my meat. My four year old was melting down so I didn't try to get it fixed. I will eat there again, but I don't trust the staff to catch cross contamination issues.

Fantastic option. Almost everything on the menu is gluten free (ALL of those sauces, meats, and most of their sides). Every time we tell them no garlic bread because of my husband's gluten issues, they not only offer him an additional side, but the manager has frequently come out to discuss the options if he has a concern. No separate GF menu, but no need since most items are safe and staff/mgmt are very knowledgable.

Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I ordered the combo platter with chicken and ribs and two gluten free sides. You do need to specify no garlic bread.

My son is thirteen and recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It's been a difficult adjustment. He loves bandanas. He orders off the gluten free menu as we are still learning. Our family has eaten here a few times and my son hasn't gotten sick and loves the food.

Bandanas in Cape does an excellent job making sure my family who is all gluten intolerant can eat with no reactions. On one of our first visits there the cook accidentally put bread on our plates. The sever came to ask if we were gluten free just something we did or if it was medical. We replied medical as who would do this for fun. She said oh I am so sorry but we messed up we will have to remake as your meals. We said that was fine. The chef came out to appologize too. We said that was fine We were just so excited he told usThat alone deserves an exceptional review but the story continues. We have gotten take out more than I can say and everytime our order is perfect They always give us another side instead of bread at no extra cost. I love this. So may times a restauant takes off the bread and gives you nothing else but charges you the same not at Bandanas. Wonderful staff and they get it.
