BJ’s is always a go to for a good GF pizza. Manager came out to talk to me about not serving GF beer anymore. I requested omission and they now serve omission beer since I requested it. I was impressed!!

Have been eating here GF since it opened. The staff are friendly and used to the GF menu. Don't know why that GF menu is on paper, separate from the other non-GF one, but ask for it at the reservation stand when you walk in. Love the pizza and/or the Southwest Salad. Got sick in 2012 one time, after figuring out I was served a regular Pizookie. If having the dessert, be sure to ask for the GF Pizookie, which now comes in a different GF pan.

I've always had good luck at BJ's and their gluten free menu is good, even though it's small. Their gluten free pizza is wonderful and always delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I was surprised at how knowledgeable the whole staff and kitchen were about Celiac and steps necessary to prevent cross contamination. I have no reaction eating here. I had the tomato mozz salad and a burger. Both were good. My bun was a typical GF bun that crumbled, but that's expected. No dedicated fryer, so that was disappointing. Service was excellent!

My waiter at BJ’s was very informed and reassured me that there was no cross-contamination in the pizza oven.

Loved BJs before I was GF. Their deep dish was elite. I got the pepperoni extreme pizza this time on the gluten free crust snd was delightfully surprised how good it was. Also got the GF pizzooki. Waitress was knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination.

I appreciate the GF chocolate chip piezookie!! Craveable… Quality is inconsistent. Just ordered to go and it was almost burned. Restaurant itself is sketchy.
