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 !
I never like it when I get a photo copy of a menu, all bent up, with no prices or description. But at least there were no food stains on it. The print was very small and hard to read. But the food was good and they even had a choc chip cookie with ice cream for dessert. It was very good
today I went & ordered something off of the GF menu. The waiter returned & said he questioned if it was GF so he asked the manager & they didn't think it was GF.... Why was it on the menu? i believe they were just uneducated. I appreciate that the waiter was concerned, but thought it was inappropriate that. the manager didn't come speak with (they were not busy). We walked out.
So I ate at this place for the first time about 8 hours ago. I waited this long to post a review to make sure there was no reaction. And it was extremely busy but the service was still awesome. The waiter dealt with my paranoia about getting glutened extremely well. I wouldn't say they have an extensive menu but they do have a pretty decent amount of foods that are gluten free. when they take your order they even have an allergen button in the tablet to notify the chief of any special requests and he himself went to tell him personally. I am an extremely sensitive celiac. I got the turkey burger ( and yes they even have gluten free buns. that came with a side salad that was also amazing. I highly recommend just make sure your direct about your allergies.
Our server was knowledgeable and took great care of us. She personally told kitchen staff to be extra careful with my food prep (Celiac Disease). Their menu has a LOT of gf options and the items are designed on the regular menu. I had a bacon guacamole burger with gf bun (don’t think it was Udi’s...it was good!) and for my side I had roasted cauliflower with turmeric and lentils (different and delicious!). They even offer a gf dessert! Their specialty is a “pazookie” with vanilla ice cream...it’s a huge cookie baked in a deep dish pan and served warm with ice cream. Sooooo good! They make the gf one in different kinds of pans so the staff can easily distinguish which is which. I will definitely go back, there were several menu items I’d like to try. I feel great the next day so I’m confident about the safety of my food. A great experience and it feels wonderful to be a “normal person” eating out. 💗
Be careful when you eat here. While we've been here a few times with good experiences, our server tonight, Jackie, was horrible. I was ordering a burger and asked about the sauce that it came with. in return I was given the "gluten free menu", which is a print out of what is on their website... the sauces were not listed so I asked if she coupd check with the kitchen. She immediately got an attitude with me and said the kitchen would tell her to refer to to the paper because everything is gluten free... which it clearly wasn't based on how things were marked and the fact that it was listing out all allergens... rather than continue down the road I ordered a plain burger with gluten free but and when the food came, it was not. Luckily I am familiar enough that I knew it didn't look right. Again, Jackie was annoyed by my pointing this out but did take it back to the kitchen to be remade. The attitude was obvious to everyone in my party, my family, as my plate was not cleared, water not refilled, and by the end not even returning to the table. While I had eaten here a few times with ok or good experience I will think hard before returning again.
Stopped by here for lunch on our way south. It is right near the freeway so there was no trouble finding it. We had the Roasted Barbacoa Chicken and the Peruvian Quinoa Chicken. Both are gluten free and were wonderful. The manager come out to reassure us that they take allergies seriously and made sure no cross contamination occurred. They did a great job and we did not have any problems.
Staff knowledgeable, pizza was ok. Love the cookie dessert!
Menu has GF items marked. When I asked for the burger that was marked GF, they asked me if I had an allergy. I explained I am Gluten Intolerant, non Celiac, but would like my food kept as GF as possible. They explained they will flag it as an allergy to ensure the proper kitchen space setup up for my meal. Food came out with a small pick that said "allergy." The bun was pretty good. It was rather hard in one spot, just one area. They offered to get me new bun, but I declined as it wasn't the whole bun. They have a nice selection of GF items, and a full GF menu online (not sure if that menu is in the restaurant.)
I ate at this restaurant for the third time last night. I had no issues with getting sick after. The menu has gluten free items clearly marked. I had the gluten free pizza and pizookie for dessert. Both were delicious. Our server was excellent; very attentive and friendly.
My very sensitive 2yo Celiac daughter had their gluten free pizza and a side of mashed potatoes. She really enjoyed them and did not get sick. The waitstaff seemed well-informed and very careful about the non- gluten free food at the table near my daughter. They have a pretty extensive gluten free menu. I was in town visiting family, or else this would be one of our new favorites.
we are a family full of Celiac's and can all find some great to eat here, safely. the pizza is great and is a fave among my kiddos. the only issue we ever have is the occasional person bringing us bread/fruit plates before our meal...we just send them back. we have never been glutened at the Springboro or Springdale locations.
I would give it zero stars if I could. Not safe for celiacs. French fries are not safe due to shared fryer. Yet my plate with supposedly gluten food was delivered with one French fry among the other food. Called manager, he apologized and took both our meals off the bill but I had to leave and go elsewhere to get something to eat after my husband who is not gluten free quickly downed his meal.
My new favorite place to eat!! Amazing GF pizza and even a yummy GF dessert- a gooey chocolate chip cookie w/ ice cream!!
Many things on the menu were gluten free. More than we normally see. They even had gf version of their specialty dessert. My 15 yr old daughter recently diagnosed w celiacs was very happy with this restaurant. The server was very careful to also note if the gluten was a preference or allergy.
I️ ordered the Gluten Free Pizookie Cookie which is prepared separate. I️ also had the Gluten Free Cheese Pizza which is made separate. I️ have Celiac.
Very knowledgeable staff. Every server I’ve ever had here knew what Celiac Disease was, and assured me they have separate dedicated gluten free prep areas, and even separate containers of anything that could be a source of cross contamination. Their gluten free pizza is by far the best gluten free pizza I have had, and is the only gluten free restaurant pizza to have never made me sick. The gluten free pizookie is not quite as good as I remember the regular pizookie being, but it is nice to not feel deprived as everyone else at the table is digging in.
Contained 8 menu items that are gluten free. Pizza crust and buns are gluten free. 90% of pizza toppings are GF. I had gf veggie pizza with pepperoni. Wish the thin crust was crispier. Our server was excellent and very tentative to our table.
My husband and I ate there for the first time. I stated on their app sensitive to gluten and told the server that I am gluten free. I was given one item that was not gf. I was given another without a problem and not having to pay for it, but my side which was touching it was not taken away. The server said unless you state one gets very sick eating gluten, the order doesn't get sent to the kitchen as gluten free since many people are not sensitive.
Very big gluten free menu food was great and good service. They ask what allergies you have and put the information in the computer along with your order which goes back to the cooks.
We ordered food for carryout and we had one Celiac in our party. The woman that helped us on the phone and in person went above and beyond with our gluten-free pizza and gluten-free giant cookie and ice cream. She labeled everything very well put it in separate bags and my son was in heaven with the dessert and the pizza!
