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.
All they had was pizza! Lame .....
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 !
This was my first time visiting a BJ's. It has decent gluten free menu, but since I was unsure of what was celiac safe I stuck with a baked potato and steamed broccoli, which were both fine. I didn't question the waitress about cross contamination, I just got everything on the side and without seasoning. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere with a huge beer selection for the non-gluten free in your party. It's a sports bar, but not too loud.
Great place for celiacs! Ate twice here this week and no reactions! Food comes out very quickly and that made me nervous that they hadn't done a custom dish fir me but I needn't have worried- their kitchens are so tailored for GF that it's like an assembly line. Well done BJ's!
Had a great GF DF latex free meal here. Usually get the pizza and pizookie but felt like something different. I ordered the ribeye, with steamed veggies and a plain baked potato. I instructed them to use no seasonings, don't put it on the grill (cook in a separate pan) and me extremely careful because I'm super sensitive to cross-contamination. They did everything perfectly, the meal was delicious, and a few managers talked with me while ordering and came to check on me and the food. BJ's always takes this seriously and I've never had a bad experience yet. Nice to know that they go above and beyond; while traveling I rely on BJ's for meals. Also, enjoyed a GF DF Strongbow hard cider! Highly recommend!
Great place to eat! Special thanks to Jordan our server. She was great! Gluten free menu and good food. I ate soup and salad with several options to choose from. I'll be back.
Great experience. Waiter Kevin was very knowledgeable on gluten free and Celiac disease. He assured me the chefs would prepare all gluten free food in a separate area and the pizza was delicious! Will definitely be returning to try other options!
I usually have good experiences here but this time was different. They had GF buns for an extra cost but they fell apart not a big surprise! My food came out about twelve minutes later than the rest of my party's did. Some non GF food was burnt, cold and not good. Out of our party of 9 we paired for 5 meals because they made some of the meals free sense they were late or burnt plus they gave us two free meal vouchers.
This was the first time I ate here, I was amazed at how good the food is and how careful they were with my order. I have a severe case of Celiac Disease and I'm extremely sensitive. I didn't get sick at all after eating here!! I loved their GF broccoli and cheese soup and their roasted brussel sprout salad. It was delicious!!
They have a gluten free menu and I have eaten here a number of times without getting sick. Also they have ciders!!
We came to BJ's for two main reasons. 1st they were open until 12am (midweek) so we didn't have to feel odd for dining at 11pm when other places were getting ready to close or were already closed. 2nd we had seen on other sites that they were gluten Intolerant friendly. They even had their own gluten-free menu. I will agree, the Brussels sprouts were very yummy. I hate every one of them! I would definitely order them and recommend them. I had the jambalaya. It had a "blackened" flavor more so than a spicy or Cajun flavor. It was different than I expected, but still very good. My partner, who has celiac disease, ordered the gluten-free pizza. (I was allowed a small bite) The cheese was good. Didn't taste like your typical pizza cheese. For being gluten-free it was tasty. The other couple dining with us had the jalapeño burger and shrimp pasta. Both said they enjoyed there meal. Our waitress was awesome. Never an empty glass. She never made us feel rushed, even though we were the last people in the restaurant. It was a good dining experience and would eat here again if in the area.
Does have a separate gluten-free menu. Had the thin crust pizza. Was tasty but the crust was not crispy.
Nice people, but the worst gf pizza I have ever had! The crust - on all 4 pizzas - was hard and difficult to chew, the "extra" cheese was ignored, and there was not enough sauce to even cover the crust - even though we ordered double! We ate the toppings - scant as they were - and threw the crusts away. In fairness, the manager offered to replace them when I called, but we all decided to stick with PizzaRev from now on. UPDATE: I ended up returning on New Years Day and the pizza was much better this time. I learned that it is best to specify that you are ordering GF due to allergy so that a manager makes your food. Also, I let them know that I had a bad prior experience, which helped in getting my order right. Consequently I am revising my rating from 1 to 3 stars.
We always get the gluten free pizza. The crust is fantastic! The staff is pretty knowledgable about Celiac Disease and relaying the message to the kitchen that the meal is for someone with Celiac or a "gluten allergy". They assure that the staff changes gloves and the meal is cooked in a clean area. They also have a gluten free cookie desert that is super yummy! This is our kiddos favorite place!
Maybe this restaurant would be better in a town without other gf options, but we did not enjoy our experience at all. Being right down the street from Burton's with their endless choices, the small handful of options at BJ's left a lot to be desired. Their labeling system just complicated things. They handed us a brochure with every item marked as far as the top 8 allergens, and then their menu has a gf seal, as well. It took a lot of time switching back and forth between the two, especially being all out of order. We ended up with gf burgers, which are marked in the menu and come with fries. After my husband ate half of the fries, I noticed they were battered. WHY WOULD YOU SEND OUT GLUTEN FRIES WITH A GF BUN??? The manager came to assure me that they didn't bread the fries, only for our waitress to come to him with the cook's information that they are, indeed, breaded.
