Overall not impressed. The reviews were really good, but I was underwhelmed. The wait was long, the soda machine had no carbonation, and I got the wrong kind of bowl. Would not go back unless there was nothing else.

Ate here after seeing all of the glowing reviews. . . and boy am I paying for it. Started having symptoms almost immediately after eating. Do not eat here if you have Celiac Disease.

Best meal I have had since my diagnosis. The bun on my turkey burger seemed so real...not grainy or firm. I even double checked that it was gluten free. Several gluten free salad dressing choices and the waiter even asked several people until he had a definite confirmation of gluten free. They have a gluten free menu including desert so you don't have to search out and guess what is available.

But it does specifically make that warning that...we do our best to keep it clean for gluten intolerance but no guarantee as there is no designated cooking space or fryer. It's a risk.

I ordered the Moroccan chicken, had a slice of my husband’s GF pizza and some of the chocolate chip pizookie with vanilla ice cream. I’m very sensitive to eating out so this was a risky one. It turned out delicious and I didn’t get sick.

They had a really good crust and the pizza was super tasty. It was a bit pricey, though. Over $16 for an eight inch pizza.

They do not have gluten free buns and the lettuce wrap I received was a bunch of cut up lettuce so it was impossible to hold. The waitress tried to tell me I'd be fine with the fries even though there is no dedicated fryer. I didn't appreciate her acting like she knew my level of sensitivity better than I do. Very presumptuous.

This place doesn’t have a ton of options, but the options it does have are delicious. The staff was very knowledgeable about celiac safety and the pizza I got was savory and delicious. One of the best I’ve had. It was a thin crust, but the sauce was delicious! We also got the gluten free pizookie dessert, YUM! Will be back.

I did not realize that BJ’s had so many GF options. They are marked on the menu but for me it was easier to use the Gluten Sensitive menu available online. I asked about the space used to prepare the Gluten Sensitive pizzas. The waiter went back and checked and reported that it is the same area they use for regular pizza but that they move everything. I’m not sure if that means move and clean or just move so I opted for the gluten sensitive bacon cheeseburger on the GF bun. ($1.50 extra) it was a good burger with a nice tasting bun; no funny after taste. When the waiter brought out the food, mine came out alone. He stated they bring the Gluten Allergy food out separately to avoid cross contamination.

“Gluten sensitive” options available. Ordered a power bowl with chicken and a gluten free pizookie, both of which were very good. Server marked my meal as an allergy.
