We have been to a BJs before in CA and really liked it so my celiac daughter was excited when we saw this one was near our hotel. Their gf options were very limited here.When I questioned why their online menu had more gf I items she said it must be because of their suppliers that they have less choices at this site. I also asked the waitress to check to make sure the pizza crust and the cookie didn't contain oats because my daughter gets sick with even gf oats. The waitress said no one knew in the kitchen. So I asked for the manager and she actually went into the freezer and got the ingredient list. We also had to wait 30 minutes for the gf cookie. My husband finally went and got the manager to check on it. The manager is the only reason I gave this place more stars. They literally only had about 5 gf items: one salad, one soup, 1 chicken entree, 1 pizza, and 1 dessert. Very different from their online menu.
Limited options and uneducated staff.
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.
I celiac. This was my first time to eat at this location but I have eaten at several other locations of this chain and have never had any ill effects. I did not confirm preparation practices before ordering but I should have as this restaurant recently opened and they may not have things exactly as they should.They have a guide to help show what good have the top 8 allergens as well as gluten items marked.I have only eaten pizza and the Gf cookie.I feel like I had a little bit of a reaction but it could have been I ate too much or something else. Unsure if my reaction was cross contamination or not.They brought out a mini appetizer for my son and I was impressed by that.This used to be my favorite place for pizza but after discovering a freezer pizza by Fresecsa (spelling?) nothing is as good as it.This location pizza was not as good as I remember other locations being. I may have picked the wrong topping.I feel like as celiac I have to like stuff for what it is even if it's not as great as I would like.Just glad to have options!Please call ahead and ask questions if you need to be certain of their practices to make sure it is right for you.
We eat here often when we come to Wichita from out of state. I’ve had steaks, gf appetizers, salads and pizza and they have all been great. I have celiac disease and cross confirmation is a huge problem for me when eating out. BJ’s has been my best bet when visiting Wichita and I’ve never had a bit of problem eating there. Staff is very knowledgeable! Be sure and order their just baked hot and chewy chocolate chip cookie. Thank you BJ’s for giving me so many gluten free SAFE food options.
Their gf menu is terrible. It is mostly a list of nutritional values. They offer burgers with gf buns, but no where does it say that on their so called “gluten free” menu. You are better off with a regular menu and talking with your server about what is gluten free. They get enough gf customers that they should put some effort into a regular menu for gf people. The food was good and the server was knowledgeable and willing to go ask if he didn’t know.
The waitress insisted the fries were gluten free but after eating 3 fries I could see there was a batter. Do not order fries! Not very skilled on gluten free. I was unaware there is a separate gluten free menu and it clearly states they have wheat.
They served me RICE PILAF after I made it very specifically known I had celiacs disease. I thought it was just brown rice because I’ve never had rice pilaf before and had to google it after I took a bite and realized it tasted strange. Never coming here again. Hope I don’t have to go to the hospital!
Amazing and so easy for gluten free!!! Lots of wonderful options, staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I felt so safe!! (I am celiac)
I feel sick. Very sick. Ordered a gf pizza and gf golden beets. Don't know how this happened as I notified server. Super disappointed as I ate here before and did just fine.
Gotta give them two stars...the gf pizza is the typical too much rice flour gf crust people were offering a few years ago. There are many other way better gf pizza options with crust that tastes like bread. Everytime I eat here my tummy gets crazy. The pazookie is nice...but its not enough to bring me in.
Our server was excellent, and without prompting told me she would let the kitchen know I can’t have gluten, never had to remind her. Housemade Cider on tap, a decent gluten free menu, and a delicious gluten free Pizookie for desert. Did not get sick! Looking forward to our next trip back.
They have a gluten free menu with lots of choices like salads, gf pizza, steak, chicken dishes, two kinds of soup, and even a gf dessert. They take precautions to minimize the chance of cross contamination. I have Celiac n and have never had a problem.
I had a really great burger, they were allergy aware and careful with my food. They have gluten free chocolate chip cookie desserts!!!! With ice cream on top. It was SO good. I could go back every day for that dessert!. I have celiac n did not get sick afterward, so I will be back!! Can’t wait to try the pizza!
Our server was very considerate and while he did not know some things on the menu he knew most and even went back to double check with the head chef. The chef personally offered ideas for something that would suit me and made it himself. They even have dessert! By far one of the best gluten free meals I’ve had from a restaurant!
Love this place as a Celiac! Pizza is really good and they segregate the preparation. Been to BJ's in five states and have never had a problem. Server even logs "Allergy" on the tablet when putting order in. The GF Pizookie is God's gift to GF desserts. Not good for you, but sure tastes fantastic. The kids love this place for pizza and my wife had a Quinoa bowl with shrimp and they all love this place for those that can eat gluten. This is one restaurant (all its locations) that I feel safe in and don't have that fear of getting sick while eating.
Location has GF menu. I asked for manager who was helpful but seemed a little unsure if all salad dressings were GF (I advise sticking to ones paired with salads on GF menu). Prices seem high, like $14 for BBQ chicken salad I got at lunch but food was decent. Wished they put GF toothpick flag or some marking or different color plate or have server announce GF on delivery rather than having to ask to make sure. I had no issues/reaction and will go back to try GF pizza there after stomach has healed more, but they could easily improve staff training and clearly mark allergy plates to improve customer experience.
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.
