Once upon a time they were working for us as a GF place to eat. But dishes that didn't bother in the past now do. Seems like maybe something has changed in the prep or cooking process, but not as safe as they used to be. Which is disappointing because we still like Black Walnut, but don't leave as happy (healthy) as we used to.
I just ate here and I ordered a burrito with a corn tortilla and it came out in a flour tortilla but I didn't notice until I ate some and thought it tasted different, extremely upset considering I know how sick I am going to get and how ridiculous this is that the order was put in wrong when I made it clear that k have a severe allergy
They have a menu accessible online. Good choices.
Previously had great experiences at this location but this last visit and the management was terrible this time. Had to bring my plate back to the counter because there was something (meat or mushrooms) in my plain scrambled eggs. The staff including the chef (who loudly dropped the plate on the counter out of frustration) and the manager got upset. At that time, told them to please not worry about remaking and requested a refund. The manager was unapologetic and acted put off. If something as simple as scrambled eggs can have unrequested items in it...
Although some reviews state that the fries are fried in a dedicated fryer, this is not the case; the menu clearly states and the management confirmed that the fries are fried with other breaded items. Also, the menu states that gluten-free bread is available for hamburgers, but when I ordered the hamburger, it came out with just the pattie and no bun or bread. When I inquired about it, they offered toast; after waiting, they brought me one small slice of toast cut in half to put a large hamburger patty on. I went back and spoke with the management, who offered to substitute another entrée. After all that, the food was just mediocre. I won't be back.
Excellent food. I had the gluten free shredded pork tacos, and took two of the three, home. This is a self-service restaurant, but when I asked questions, and the ice tea was empty, one of the employees let me know that I had bothered him, and he wasn't friendly. I'm just passing through, but won't be back.
I have had 2 excellent experiences and one very poor when where I was given food with butter on it after specifying no dairy. Lobster tacos are excellent and already come w corn tortillas. Gluten free menu is pretty extensive. Know the accommodations you need when ordering and don't count on them to know them
Good food. I've had good luck here. But I don't get the bread anymore. It costs more and I'm pretty sure it's Udi's. the main reason is that one day my bread came toasted with blackened crumbs, which I assume came from a non-dedicated broiler. I didn't want to chance it.
The staff really know what they're doing with gluten-free food. Andrea, the cashier, was super nice and incredibly helpful because she has celiac disease as well. They gave me the disclaimers about the kitchen being a mixed kitchen, but they are careful enough for safety.
You can ask for a gluten free menu at the counter. Lots of options. Omelettes and great salads. The never ending summer salad is great and they will sub gluten free bread. They will note gluten allergy on your ticket. My favorite place to eat gluten free. Eat here once a week.
They have a separate gluten free if you ask for it. When you order they ask if it's an allergy or "preference ". I got the lobster tacos. So good! In corn tortillas and they don't put croutons on the side salad. It is family friendly and my children and husband were all happy with their meals
They have a fairly large gluten free menu, and the staff is fairly well-versed on what that means. The food is top-notch and delicious. I loved the lobster tacos, and discovered that Udi's bread has gotten way better than the last time I tried it. They served it with the salmon spread and it was great.
This place is a favorite in our family... Even before Celiac. But they do have a varied menu of gluten free items (sub GF bread for sandwiches, burgers, grilled cheese, corn tortilla for quesadillas, omelettes, lobster tacos, etc)... But you DEFINITELY have to ask at the counter and even ask for a manager to be safe. Allergen alert on your Ticket!
Absolutely wonderful! Great food and atmosphere. Lobster Tacos were to die for and Bacon and Tomato Grilled cheese with gluten free bread was very good too! Daughter had quesadillas with corn tortillas and garlic mashed potatoes and loved them. Fantastic restaurant. We can't wait to come back.
I love this place! It has a rather large gluten-free menu and gluten-free bread. There is a slew of options to chose from and everything that I have tried so far has been great. Just make sure to order exactly as the menu says because some of the employees are not knowledgeable about gluten.
