Don’t waste your time. They have very little on the menu that is gluten free folks can eat. Even their salads and salad dressings aren’t gluten free (as told by the “lead server”.)

I had one of their power bowls about an hour and a half ago, and have the WORST heartburn I’ve had in a long time.

GS (gluten sensitivity) is well marked on the menu. The choices have changed over the years but they still offer the pizza and cookie dessert. Not much selection but enough if you are out with others and need to eat.

GF isn’t really GF. Maybe for those avoiding gluten per choice but not if Celiac. I had the GF pizza and now sick. So disappointed and disgusted with restaurants. I should have known better.

Staff is very knowledgeable about being gluten friendly. If you notify your server up front, they will select the gluten sensitive option on their pad to let the kitchen know. Even though the selection isn’t that large, the food is quite good. My wife has celiac disease and she loves getting the gluten free pizza and pizzookie for dessert. Good place.

I have Celiac Diease so I have to be careful where I eat and what I eat. I had the Roasted Shrimp Quinoa Bowl and it was delish! I didn't react to it at all. The Gluten free pizza is also very good. I love BJs!

We always get the gluten free pizza. The crust is fantastic! The staff is pretty knowledgable about Celiac Disease and relaying the message to the kitchen that the meal is for someone with Celiac or a "gluten allergy". They assure that the staff changes gloves and the meal is cooked in a clean area. They also have a gluten free cookie desert that is super yummy! This is our kiddos favorite place!

OMG! I don’t know what happened! They used to have more gluten free options. Now there are hardly any? What happened to the pork chop? Why aren’t the steaks gf? Thank God they have gluten free Pizza. The White pizza is delicious. And they still have gluten free pizookies. Amen for that

Visiting El Paso for work, not many celiac safe options. I ate here twice and had the salmon quinoa bowl. It was healthy and tasty, I did not get “glutened”. They even had a GF pizookie, but I’m dairy free so I didn’t order.

I spent time researching the menu items online before going and I ordered things that were on the GF menu (a salad and GF piezookie). When my piezookie was brought to my table the ice cream was in a carton so I put it on my piezookie and started eating it. I assumed they brought it that way so it wouldn’t melt as fast. I was about halfway done when the waitress said “you know the ice cream isn’t gluten free, right?”. I had never heard of plain vanilla ice cream containing gluten. Their online menu says the ice cream is safe for people eating gluten free so I don’t know if they changed distributors or what, but I was annoyed that nobody told me that before I started eating it since I mentioned celiac disease.

Usually BJ's is good, but just as a heads up I got glutened last time I was here. The cooks had been using a palette knife to put aioli on all the burgers, so the whole lot was contaminated with crumbs and gluten before they put any aioli on my burger.

Be wary of sauce that's not from a bottle!
