This is my all time favorite place. They have gluten free pizza, gluten free beer, and gluten free pizookies. The pizookies are to DIE FOR!!!! They come in chocolate chip flavor so you can’t get one of the cool flavors, but the choco chip is enough for me!!! Gooey, warm and the vanilla ice cream (or chocolate if preferred) slowly melts in the cookie and the combo of flavors is superb lol I think they also have gluten free buns, but I haven’t tried their burgers. always tell them I have celiac and to kindly use clean gloves, surface, utensils, etc. The manager sometimes comes over to confirm everything to make sure my meal is taken care of properly.

I have gotten sick a few times over the past 3 years, but mostly my experience has been amazing. (And I eat there/takeout frequently—- like once or twice a week… especially with DoorDash 😅) As long as you let them know you have celiac and cross contamination makes you severely ill, you should be good.

I got a gift card which is why we returned. The GF pizza was "more soggy than the pizza we had at Raging Waters and that's a water park!".

7-7-15 update. They removed the chicken item from the GF menu. practically nothing GF on menu. WORST. SERVICE. EVER! ....1 hour 45 minute lunch for 1 person. lame. lemon thyme chicken is good. GF Pizooki is yummy. Service is consistently the worst. I seriously get so frustrated by the end of my meal.

I should emphasize that my experience was at a dufferent bj location closer to Hayward...but its a chain so I kind of judge them all based on this: disappointed with this place on so many levels: I was not in the mood for pizza so asjed for a burger without the bun and all I got was a hunk of cooked ground meat on top of a piece of greasy, wilted, and almost spoiled lettuce. Meanwhile, my very pregnant friend got cold chicken which I now know is dangerous because of Listeria. Plus the service was slow and the staff unorganized.

Awesome! First time my husband was jealous over my gluten free meal from their own Root Beer to pizza to a cookie (can't remember the fancy name) but everything was gluten free so I left full and feeling great. Thanks.

They have good gluten-free choices and Redbridge but not all of the chain locations are careful with cross-contamination. I had a great GF pizza from the San Jose with no problem but I had a reaction after eating a GF pizza from the Bridgepoint BJ's. Choose your locations carefully.

Very few options for gluten-free. I had the cheese pizza and it had no flavor.

I’ve gone here twice and got the gf pizza and I have asked if they make the pizzas in a clean area away from gluten foods and they always tell me yes. And they will also note that I have a gluten allergy so they are extra careful. They also have trulys and their own berry cider which are gluten free alcohol drinks.

My server was great, she was knowledgeable about Celiac and made sure the GF pizza I ordered was prepared safely. She also checked the ranch when I asked about it. The menu has several gluten “sensitive” options and the only things labeled gluten free were the pizza and a pizzookie so I ordered the thin crust pizza and it was good
