Pizza was great! Service was the WORST! We should have known when we had to ask for water twice and iced tea three times. One appetizer had to be asked for two times, after kids' got their food. To top it all off, I finished my pizza before they brought my husband's burger. The manager seemed offended that we complained about the service. On the end, she comped our meal, but then never came back to tell us, so we sat there for another 10 minutes waiting for the check.
Like any restaurant cross contamination is a worry. But they use special pans for their pizza and pazzoki's. You can get any topping on their pizza (but meatballs) which is exciting!
This is my sons favorite gf pizza. Their selection is limited but tasty none the less! *I'm updating because it seems every time I go here I have a bad reaction. I don't think they take care to prevent cross contamination which is disappointing.
not many options but it was still good.
While limited on options, it was great to have a gf pizza crust. I originally ordered the bbq chicken pizza, which the waiter did not know would be an issue, so the chef actually came out to our table to make sure I was aware of this and ask if I'd like to make another selection. ultimately had the Mediterranean pizza without the cheese which was amazing. Done side was that because of this, my meal came once everyone else had finished theirs. Ate here twice in one week without any reactions.
The menu was limited (don't be fooled - the "Body and Soul" side of the g-free menu IS NOT g-free. However, both my husband and I are Celiac, and we had no reaction to the food at all. We did clearly state that it was a food allergy, not a lifestyle choice. The food was tasty though and filling.
Love the gf pizza!
We never got to our main dish. Ordered a gluten free Cesar salad without croutons. It came with croutons. The manager came out to deliver the second salad and when my son mixed it, he noticed a piece of corn in the salad. At that point, we didn't feel comfortable staying for our meal so we asked for the manager and told him the issues and left. He apologized and said he understood. This was our first visit to this restaurant. I called and spoke to the manager ahead of time and, based on the conversation, I felt confident that they understood gluten free and took the necessary precautions. Obviously, I was wrong.
Worse than not offering anything, their GF menu contradicted their kitchen practices and ingredients at the location in Westwood. Plus, the more inquiries made, the more confused the staff got. I opted for meat and lettuce on a plate and it was delicious, but seriously. Take everything in the chain's menu with a grain of gluten unless you find a manager who's really on top of it.
The Gluten- Free menu was quite expansive! The sirloin steak I got was wonderfully cooked. They also have a cookie-like dessert that's good for Celiacs. Overall wonderful restaurant, very careful with Gluten free food, they make it in separate pans and everything!
The food was really good and they seemed very knowledgeable about how to handle gluten free. The gf free food came out first and separate from everything else. Loved the gf pizookie! It was nice that they had such a great dessert offering. We gave it four stars only because the gf menu was so limited.
GF pizza, hamburger & pazookie! No reaction!
Good food - good service - the food took a long time for us today on a big busy day - but our server was friendly and helpful
Great place. I was on the road today traveling. I ordered the GF Chop salad (forgot their name for it) and had no problem. Further, it was a nice big portion. I had no reaction. It was happy hour, and the Tito and Tonic were very generous pours and excellent service.
This was my first time visiting a BJ's. It has decent gluten free menu, but since I was unsure of what was celiac safe I stuck with a baked potato and steamed broccoli, which were both fine. I didn't question the waitress about cross contamination, I just got everything on the side and without seasoning. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere with a huge beer selection for the non-gluten free in your party. It's a sports bar, but not too loud.
Great place for celiacs! Ate twice here this week and no reactions! Food comes out very quickly and that made me nervous that they hadn't done a custom dish fir me but I needn't have worried- their kitchens are so tailored for GF that it's like an assembly line. Well done BJ's!
Had a great GF DF latex free meal here. Usually get the pizza and pizookie but felt like something different. I ordered the ribeye, with steamed veggies and a plain baked potato. I instructed them to use no seasonings, don't put it on the grill (cook in a separate pan) and me extremely careful because I'm super sensitive to cross-contamination. They did everything perfectly, the meal was delicious, and a few managers talked with me while ordering and came to check on me and the food. BJ's always takes this seriously and I've never had a bad experience yet. Nice to know that they go above and beyond; while traveling I rely on BJ's for meals. Also, enjoyed a GF DF Strongbow hard cider! Highly recommend!
Great place to eat! Special thanks to Jordan our server. She was great! Gluten free menu and good food. I ate soup and salad with several options to choose from. I'll be back.
Let's face it--every time those with celiac eat a meal away from home, there is a risk of getting contaminated. I have never had a problem after eating here, but that doesn't mean you won't ever. I think their pizza is better than most GF pizza, and there are some delicious options on the GF menu.
