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.
I have celiac and never had a problem here. Many GF Options.
Delicious food!! I had the burger with red onion, bacon and brisket it was amazingggg
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!
Usually good. However won't eat pizza anymore due to cross contamination. Haven't had problems with other dishes though.
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.
Good pizza and good dessert. Nothing much else for gf options.
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.
Great food and homemade hard cider!!!
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!
Great gluten free pizza and great homemade soda
Great gluten free pizza, what a treat!
Wonderful to g-free customers!!! They offer g-free beer, cider, pizza, & dessert!!! The g-free menu has the entire menu on the back, in a grid, to list all ingredients from wheat to dairy to MSG!!!! The staff does a wonderful job taking care of you and I will certainly be back!
Great service, gluten free menu including gluten free pizza! Mgr came over personally to confirm that our order was gluten free. And the food was fantastic !
My waitress was very a knowledgeable. She warned me that the grill and fryers can both be cross contaminated so I couldn't get burgers or steaks but their gluten free pizza and cookie dessert is phenomenal. She told me they cook the pizza in a separate pan in the oven. All toppings except meatballs are GF. Best pizza ever. Will go back.
Their GF pizza is amazing! I love that they have a separate allergy menu. Also our server told us most things can also be made GF if you ask specially. They might just leave something off. I’ve eaten here several times and have had no issues, and I’m celiac.
Fernando went out of his way to make sure I didn’t get sick. 5 star service!
Ordered what the server said was gluten free (shrimp and quinoa meal), quinoa came out uncooked and there were spices on the shrimp. Sick 30 mins later. CC nightmare!
They will give you a gluten free menu if you ask, 2 to 3 pages, then the rest tells of what is in everything for allergy reasons. I have been diagnosed with celiac disease and I am going through chemotherapy. I ate a gluten free chicken dish, and a gluten free salad that tasted good. I had a rash and a stomach ache the next day but that could be from chemotherapy, so I am rating this unsure for know. Disappointing the half price pizza Monday does not include their gluten free pizzas which are 10 inches and cost $17.50 for chicken and mushroom.
This place was awesome! They made sure to check with the manager and the cooking staff about the food for us. The waiter was awesome as well he went over the gf menu and was able to put in comments so the kitchen staff would know to be careful. Would definitely go back ! 😊
I eat the gf cheese and/or pepperoni pizza ALL the time- & it is my favorite tasting gf pizza. Note your “allergy” for the server to add to your order, to alert the kitchen to use extra caution and change gloves. They are aware. They use separate pans and extra precaution paper for the gf pizza. And the gf pizookie always comes out in a dark pan (not a silver one-like all others)! Order with a peachberry iced tea and you’re in for a treat!(:
I've eaten at this location a couple of times, and haven't gotten sick, I did however get sick at this last visit and honestly it's my own fault for not reading the gluten free menu very carefully. I ordered the Fresh Atlantic Salmon with mashed potatoes instead of rice pilaf- which if you read the GF menu it says to remove the rice pilaf and also remove the lemon Chardonnay butter sauce... I forgot to mention this so it had the sauce- good God was it delicious- and exactly on schedule - blam. I didn't figure it out until I got home and re-read the GF menu. Always mention those caveats to the waitstaff- never assume. Other than that, every meal I've had at BJ's has been fabulous.
Their GF pizza was great! I got their pizza with three different types of pepperoni and added roasted garlic. I also ordered online and specified allergy in the comments and when I got there to pick it up I double checked that they used a separate cutter and everything and they did, and allergy was marked on the box.
Staff was very helpful, however it didn’t matter how many questions were asked. Things are marked on the menu as GF but we’re not (Derby Cobb comes with blue cheese). Blue cheese dressing was also marked as GF in the allergy menu, doubt it actually is. We were assured that the pizza had it’s own tray, and the kitchen was notified of the allergy, but it still resulted in early morning vomiting and weeks of illness. Fryer is shared with fried chicken and other wheat products. Supposedly a gluten free burger would come with fries if we didn’t ask. Second star is definitely only because of our waiter.
Not the most options I've ever seen, but when I called ahead the chef told me they use separate dishes and utensils for GF orders as well as ingredients from fresh, unopened containers. Ordered a great personal pizza and pizzookie and felt fine afterwards!
Waitress explained her child is celiac, so she went out of her to way to ensure my dinner was completely gluten free. My meal took a lot longer than my families.
Wait staff were knowledge of celiac and cross contamination risks. They advised me of their procedures, they have a separate part of the kitchen gluten free food is prepared and have procedures to use clean gloves and separate utensils. Separate gluten free menu. Fries were a no go due to shared fryers. I had salmon with mashed potato and my 9 year old had gluten free pizza and the gluten free chocolate chip pizookie. Everything was delicious and we had nil issues later.
Kids loved the gluten free pizza and gluten free chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream, no reaction. Server understood Celiac disease.
