we love bj's and were glad to find it passing through el paso. they have plenty of gf options. usually the servers are trained on the gf allergy. my daughter ordered the chicken baked potato and the server brought it with the Alfredo sauce that was supposed to be omitted. needless to say she took a bite....which is really frustrating.
There were lots of options to choice from and the waitress was very knowledgeable on the menu and changes that could be made. The thing that I liked the best was the gluten free pizookie with ice cream. It was amazing and I don’t know the last time I had such a good dessert at a restaurant.
I eat here often. Never been sick. I usually order safer things, like broccoli cheese soup and salad, cobb salad, quinoa bowl with salmon. I am celiac so I make a big deal out of it and they always treat me well.
I was so happy they have a dedicated gluten free menu in the restaurant, takes the pressure off knowing what is safe to order! I recommend the gluten free pizza and pizzookie! Staff were amazing and the berry blast cider was great as well!
Best meal I have had since my diagnosis. The bun on my turkey burger seemed so real...not grainy or firm. I even double checked that it was gluten free. Several gluten free salad dressing choices and the waiter even asked several people until he had a definite confirmation of gluten free. They have a gluten free menu including desert so you don't have to search out and guess what is available. But it does specifically make that warning that...we do our best to keep it clean for gluten intolerance but no guarantee as there is no designated cooking space or fryer. It's a risk.
I had a great experience again! The manager came to the table to talk about the measures they would take in the kitchen to make sure my food would be safe. I had the chicken with rice and beans dish. In the past, I’ve had their pizza several times and the warm chocolate chip cookie and ice cream. Delicious!
Extensive Separate GF menu. Waiter told us the staff go through a 1 hr GF training session, and was very enthusiastic to help and learn. It’s our 9yo that’s celiac, so he had a burger on a GF bun. The only issue is that all their fryers are in a line, so none of them are dedicated GF. No fries for kiddo, he had a baked potato instead. Going through GF training for staff but neglecting to have a dedicated fryer seems like a big miss to me, hence the 4 stars.
I questioned my waiter about items listed on the menu as being gluten-free but not celiac safe. He graciously asked the kitchen manager who informed him that they are not celiac safe. I definitely appreciated their honest.
One of my favorite local chain restaurants. Gluten free pizza, gluten-free dessert and ciders. Staff is very careful, pizza is a great value and you can place your order before you even get there either for takeaway or so that it’s ready when you are seated.
I brought my sister here when she visited since they have a gluten free menu. Service was slow and took almost an hour before we ordered drinks. We both had very bad reactions and are considering cross contamination happened. I've heard good things about other BJ's brewhouses-so it might have been this one in particular.
I love their gluten free options. Always try to get there early.
Great food! The temperature left a lot to be desired. Service seemed slow. The waiter had an entire room to himself which was way too much. He compensated us be giving us a gf cookie for free...it was delicious! And our server was extremely knowledgeable about gf options.
The food is great, most of the staff are knowledgeable when it comes to celiac. The ones who aren’t have always been willing to ask the chef/management. Service has always been amazing, definitely one of our favorites!
Staff was helpful and made sure to notify kitchen staff of need to avoid gluten contamination. They have a large menu that took some time to find items that were gluten free, but they are marked with a GF designator. The waiter showed me a new menu that contains only gluten free options. This will make life much easier.
Easily accommodating and the pizzoki is out of this world! Also, gluten free cheddar broccoli soup!!
Good service. Gluten free bun for the burgers was great! Staff happy to help with gluten free needs.
Have a decent selection of gluten free items marked on their menu including sandwich, burgers with gluten free bun, salads, pizza and pie zoomkie for dessert. I had an awesome salad with real turkey (not lunchmeat), cheese, avocados, cucumbers, tomatoes, crisp bacon, romaine lettuce and honey mustard. So good and huge! I didn’t get sick. Win! Win!
The pizza is delicious!! The crust was absolutely perfect. Also you have to get the pizookie, it was out of this world good.
Manager makes all gluten free food. The pizza was great. I think my non gf husband are more of the pizookie than me. I wanted to get one to go.
My coworkers wanted to grab a quick bite and I walked in not expecting much. In my experience most Ale Houses or Brew Houses have little to no GF options as far as food. Well, I was proved wrong! They have a huge menu just like The Cheesecake Factory, and all of the GF options are clearly labeled. They have GF buns for burgers and sandwiches, GF pizza, cauliflower pita for tacos, and zoodles. On Wednesday’s they do $10 burgers and bottomless fries. I was able to get a burger with a GF roll and since the fries are not GF safe, they swapped it out for a baked potato no extra cost. Our server was very knowledgeable and anything she was unsure of she checked with a manager. The best part is they have a gluten free cookie skillet for dessert, and it qualifies for the free dessert if you sign up for rewards! I unfortunately did not get to try it but plan to when I return.
Staff friendly. Our normal BJs order is fine. Broccoli cheese soup and baked potato and pizzookie. Four stars because Heads up! BJs has a Gluten free chicken Alfredo zucchini noodles on menu that IS NOT gluten free. I questioned the sauce and yes has flour. Marked as GF! Just be aware the corporate office may not know what really is GF!
Went a few times a year ago and things were great. Staff and management seem to have changed because they were not accommodating about cross contamination. They did assure us that they could not promise safe practices. My daughter was so hungry we tried, as we had good experiences in the past. Well, she got sick and we won’t be returning! She has celiac.
I really love eating here. I can’t say the menu has that many options but the ones they have are great. You can even get a gluten free pizookie for dessert which is nice. My only complaint is that on my first visit the server had no idea how to explain the chart in the back of my gluten free menu.
I got cheese pizza and the chocolate chip pizookie. The pizza is ok here. Not terrible not great it’s just food in my opinion. Saw the other reviews and was nervous I would get sick so that put my stomach in absolute knots even though I didn’t actually get sick from the food. Never have been glutened at a BJ’s and hopefully never will. A good option if you have nothing else. Would honestly just come here to enjoy the pizookie because it is soooooooooo good.
Every gluten free item is marked but if you have Celiac I would download the gluten free menu and base your order off of that. They have gluten free buns for the burger but we we not sure if the burgers were gluten free so we just stuck to the pizza, chicken , and steak. My kids loved the pizza and all the toppings except for the meatballs are gluten free.
If they had a “nicer” menu that doesn’t make GF customers feel like an afterthought I would’ve given them 5 stars. The GF menu we got made me a little nervous, but the server was knowledgeable and the food was safe.
They have GF items noted on the regular menu in addition to a separate GF menu with an allergen list attached. I ordered the double pork chop, and the manager came out to tell me it was going to take longer (15-20 minutes) because they had some pre-cooked which could have cross contamination, so it would take longer to cook me a new one to ensure mine was safe. He even brought out a fruit and roll plate for each of my kids to hold them over since it would take longer. Food was great. I’ve dined here multiple times and haven’t had a reaction. GF pizookie is wonderful too. Staff seems knowledgeable, and will go ask a manager if they don’t know.
I have come to this location several times and it has been fine except for the service. Went here yesterday and got broccoli cheese soup and gluten free pizza. Only ate half of my pizza and before leaving the restaurant I was sick. Do yourself a favor and drive to the one in Plano!!!
Several gluten free options on menu but no dedicated fryer for french fries. My burger was served with the fries even after I told him I had gluten “allergy”. I switched it out but had itchy skin and GI symptoms after. I would try a different BJs solely for the GF pazookie. It was delicious.
I just went there for my birthday and they have a great amount of gluten free foods . I really recommend. And the waitress is well aware of gluten free but you jut have to make sure you tell them allergies.
This facility is NOT safe for Gluten Free food. Although they have a limited gluten free menu & advertise their gluten free pizookie, they are not safe for celiacs. Our celiac family got contaminated here & our server Jeremy was arrogant & rude. Staff are not trained to understand this food related disease. They also don't use a dedicated gluten free fryer. 😥🤢🤮💔
My waitress seemed not very knowledgeable but did nicely find out the answers to my questions. I ordered the hamburger, plain with a GF bun and a baked potato. I didn’t get any bun - which was ok - and I did get my baked potato. However, there were fries all over my plate, which she had questioned and informed us were not GF.
