Menu is on the internet. Hostess was not interested. Got glutened. Having BBQ Chicken Salad. I'm thinking the dressing or chicken. Covid precautions in place, nice atmosphere but limited menu and not knowledgeable.

My daughter (who has celiac) ordered the GF cheese pizza which was very good and we shared a GF pazooki and it was DELICIOUS! It was our first time there and we will definitely be going back. It's been about three hours since we ate and she feels totally fine. That is a win!

The good things: BJ’s is my go-to for a gluten free burger with a real bun. I don’t know what witchcraft they’re using, but the gluten free buns are actually delicious - like better than the gluten buns of days gone by. Their GF pizza is decent, and the GF pizzookie (sp?) is pretty good. Their staff is great about getting a manager or chef to answer questions. It never feels like dietary restrictions are a nuisance.

The bad things: There aren’t a lot of options. They DO NOT have a dedicated fryer, so stay away from fries and chips. They do have a gluten free menu, but they can’t actually make all of the things on there. Ask what isn’t available before browsing it.

We went here because we were told they had an extensive gf menu. Unfortunately covid strikes again. They have downsized the menu considerably. Server was knowledgeable and honest. He made very specific notes for the kitchen. No reaction so I believe the choices were gf but it was disappointing to have so little to choose from...however the burger was amazingly tasty. No designated fryer ...

Our server was also gluten free and helped me navigate the menu. She brought a binder with all allergen info. Then she double checked with the kitchen manager when I asked. Food was good. Service was good.

I’ve eaten here numerous times even when it was extremely busy. Very knowledgeable staff. I am very sensitive to even the slightest amount of cross contamination but I’ve never once been sick at this location. Highly recommend
