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 !
We ordered gluten free cheese pizza and a bazookie. But the time we got to the car my two youngest(with Celiacs) were throwing up. I worried that it could be a coincidence so I had them take the urine test the next day to see if they had gluten... sure enough they had enough gluten make the test positive which was equivalent to 1/4 of a piece of bread. That is not cross contamination- that is something gluten in the recipe! Sooo sad because we loved BJ’s
I ordered an item that was labeled gf. I told me waiter I had celiac disease, my order was labeled with that and allergy. Was delicious and did not make me sick. Great experience
Ordered off of the gluten free menu and requested a house salad for my side. The backup server brought out the salad with croutons on it, I told her I had requested my meal to be gluten free per having celiacs and she rolled her eyes and walked off and came back about a minute later having given me the same exact salad with the croutons just pulled off. Notified the server assigned to my table that I could not eat the salad because it was brought with croutons and she apologized and brought me a fresh salad almost immediately. The experience left me feeling uneasy about consuming the food, but I was okay this time and did not get sick. I went here again recently and the server of our table didn’t seem to really understand the requests. We kept having issues at the table about food being forgotten or incorrect and with this experience, I feel like the server may have been confused or overly busy which resulted in my food being contaminated and me being sick. All in all, some of the employees are knowledgeable and sympathetic to people whom have celiacs while others treat you as an inconvenience for making them do their job. But this place seems to be a hit or miss. I’ve had great experiences here as well.
Had dinner there tonight. Ordered a burger that was labeled GF on their menu. Asked if the fries are GF. Server said she’d check and if they are do I want them? I said yes. She brought me the burger and fries. Fries were crispy and I thought wow, these are great! Now tonight I’m HORRIBLY SICK. I asked another person I ate dinner with what they thought of the fries and they said they definitely seemed breaded because they were so crispy. DO NOT trust them to even do what they say! She said she’d check if they were GF. CLEARLY, they were not. I’m so so sick now. Very disappointed
Limited item GF items on the menu. Waiter was knowledgeable and friendly and spoke to the chef. My quinoa bowl was yummy. The other dinner option was a chicken/bean dish. Highly sensitive and I didn’t get sick. Bonus for this place was the GF chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream option! We indulged and it was worth every calorie.
Amazing! Order a pizookie, you won’t be disappointed! Also the pizza was wonderful
Lots of options and was ultimately safe for celiac... they did have to remake a salad even after the allergy note but they did actually remake it and were very prompt about it. Didn't try the pizzas which seem ripe for cross-contamination. The gf cookie was great!!
Delicious gluten-free pizza! I had to question if it was gluten free because it was SO good. (It totally was lol.) Plus, they even have a gluten free chocolate chip pizookie, which is a fresh baked cookie with ice cream on top! I’ll definitely be back!
I read there allergy menu and there’s wheat in a lot of their items also soy is in everything but there pizza with no toppings.
Ordered gf pizookie and bbq chicken chopped salad online. On both items i put comment that I have a gluten allergy. For salad, needed them not to include onion strings and asked for that. Both items tested safe with Nima sensor and I didn’t get sick. A couple years ago pretty sure I got sick here, but this time verified safe. Next time maybe I’ll try the pizza.
The gluten-free pizza was very good and I didn't have any problems. Very tasty gluten-free pizookie! I will be back again.
The service was good, the food tasted great, and there were plenty of gluten-free options, even vegetarian ones. Unfortunately, I had to skip the gluten-free pizzookie this time, since I suffer from GERD (in addition to celiac disease) and can't have chocolate, but the vanilla ice cream that I ordered instead was pretty good, too. I made an exception and trusted the reviews that this place is safe for celiacs instead of asking directly, so I can neither confirm nor deny that it is. However, the staff did appear very knowledgeable. My non-celiac lunch company enjoyed his food as well, so I can vouch for this place for people who don't have to eat gluten-free as well.
Oh my goodness, I had a burger topped with bacon and brisket with BBQ sauce and a side of fries. It was phenomenal. Also had chips and guacamole for an appetizer (separate fryer) and ice cream for dessert! No reaction and I’m very sensitive. Definitely feel safe here after ordering so many different items during rush hour on a Saturday night. Will be back.
Knowledgeable staff and awesome food! I’ve ordered a pizza 2x from here and it is the best GF crust/pizza I’ve had - tastes just like the real thing! They also have a very extensive menu. Ask for Shawn, he went above and beyond both times to make sure that every item was truly GF (I ordered a side Cesar salad and though the dressing was marked GF on the menu, he came back to the table immediately after taking our order to let me know he had checked the bottle and it did not appear to be GF after all). The GF Pizookie is made on separate pans than the regular ones and they’re very tasty too! We will be going back.
Staff is very knowledgeable about being gluten friendly. If you notify your server up front, they will select the gluten sensitive option on their pad to let the kitchen know. Even though the selection isn’t that large, the food is quite good. My wife has celiac disease and she loves getting the gluten free pizza and pizzookie for dessert. Good place.
To say they have a gluten free menu might be stretching it. Upon explaining celiacs, I was told they would grab me the menu. I got a flip book allergy disclosure booklet. In it, there's basically pizza & their ice cream. A few items can be modified to be GF, for example their baked potatoes can come without any sauce, so just broccoli on a potato. I ordered the cheese pizza with bacon, tomatoes & mushroom. Tasty but got sick from it.
I have enjoyed this restaurant before knowing I had celiac. The gluten free options were small. They had a chicken breast with a chimichurri sauce which was good, but small, some green beans and I traded out something for a small salad. It tasted good but was still hungry afterward. The waitress did talk to the cook and they made sure to check ingredients, and I wasn't glutened so it went fine.
Their gf pazooki is so good. It’s rare to find gf dessert and I love it. The gf menu isn’t huge but it’s good. About 10 years ago they have me a non-gf flatbread pizza instead of a gf pizza and made me VERY sick but they learned and retrained their staff, so I give them 3 stars. They have never made me sick since but I never order their pizza again, just in case.
