I am blown away that this place has 5 stars. This is some of the nastiest food and the menu is so limited. Save yourself $20 and microwave you a can of soup at home.

I have eaten safely at BJ'S many times over the years. I usually get a burger wrapped in lettuce. There is not a dedicated fryer, so I opt for a different side instead of the fries. The wait staff has consistently been able to confirm that a burger is the best choice to prevent contamination in the kitchen. I tell the server that I have celiac disease so they can note that with my entree. FYI, my favorite burger is the one with bacon, jalapenos, and avocado. It's so delicious!!!!

Cross contaminated!!! Started feeling it when we were paying the bill, full blown sick by the time I got home. Not a place for Celiacs!

Ordered a salad and was told the manager would personally make my food. Unfortunately, I used my Nima tester- and the salad was not gluten free.

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.

great pizookie (ice cream cookie), and the broccoli cheddar soup was tasty. But my salmon was old, dry, and fishy tasting. The vegetables raw. I came in when I was starving and the host was awesome at getting us seated quickly, the hostess amazing at helping me curb my hunger by going to get me a soda and some cherries from the bar. And I ordered my cookie in advance so that I could eat quickly. Thursday night was amazing.

Burt the manager was very helpful. My food was good and I even got the gf cookie. They told me all gf items are prepared with dedicated equipment so it seems like it's pretty safe. I can see how if wait staff is not careful one could get glutened so I think one must not be afraid to ask questions. I wish their menu was a little broader but I will try BJs again!

management is basically worthless... on their cell phone Facebooking at the bar while guests are sitting there with the wrong food. I've been here 4 times and contaminated twice. Wrong cookie for desert by the waitress... how do you do that? Service is hit or miss Brenna and Greg in the bar are good. That's the only reason for 2 stars instead of zero.

Super limited menu! I don't even think it's worth going. When I go to eat with someone and this is what they choose, I eat ahead of time. Like others say, very slow service.

Ashamed to admit that we kind of went just for the dessert! Gluten free dessert in a restaurant is a rare treat. My daughter and I both had gluten free salads (Santa Fe) which were really good and the pizookie was to die for. Neither of us had any issues afterward. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that service really is pretty slow there. It took a long time to get our food.

Good menu and very good about contamination. The only reason I don't give them a 5 is that you can't get outta there in less then 2 hrs. They have service problems and I have always have to send back my food at least once, not because of gluten issues, just badly cooked or wrong food. Very safe place to eat for celiacs.

We have been to Bj's several times. The gf pizza and capresse salad are wonderful. Most of our visits the manager came to our table to explain how they prepare gf and their efforts to avoid cross contamination. Only once did we encounter an idiot server but we just asked to speak with the manager and everything was fine. My biggest complaint is that I am also wheelchair-bound and it is a real hassle to get to the restrooms. You either have to enter through the take out door or traverse carefully through the crowded bar area.

FYI...we were at BJ's Restaurant & Brewery in Colorado Springs, CO today with my family. My kids are NOT gluten-free, but I am due to Celiac disease and my husband is to support me. We went there because we were told they were great supporters of GF patrons. When the waitress came I asked her a ? about an item on the menu and she didn't know..she took the gluten-free menu from me and proceeded to search..then she looks at me and says how about a potato because I really don't know about anything else...I said sure. Then when my husband ordered, off of the GF menu, she interrupted him and said is this an allergy or a preference? Not sure WHY she would ask that but I can say it made us VERY nervous about why she would ask that...is the food that is a "preference" going to be cross contaminated?? I ordered the sirloin...it was bland, no seasoning at all..it was supposed to have onions sauteed on top (per the menu), it didn't...I asked if they had any sauce, that was gluten-free...the man who brought out the food said he would check...he didn't. They promised my sons ketchup...we never received it and we had to ask for silverware. Overall, I was NOT impressed with the restaurant...the gluten free food was BLAND...and over all a poor experience was had by all. Just wanted to let you know...I know they claim support and endorsements by the GiG...but from my experience there are definitely BETTER GF restaurants out there!

They have always been very accommodating- they can mark your food and make a point of limiting cross contamination. I get the cheese pizza and a gluten free pizookie- SO GOOD! I recommend, just emphasize Celiac if you have it.

Waitress was awesome. The GF menu is not helpful and very small. The 4 star rating is because the pizza was delicious. GF crust. I got the chicken bacon. Also got GF pazookie. 4 stars because the pizza was so yummy. Don't offer many options outside of pizza. But they do have GF buns.
