Review


After seeing all the amazing “celiac-friendly” reviews, I was very excited to try Blu Star Grill. Unfortunately, I was unimpressed with the service and I seem to be having a severe reaction :(

I explained to our server that I have a gluten allergy, and she nonchalantly said she’d let the kitchen know that they’d “change their gloves.” Not reassuring enough for me usually, but with 100% of 20 reviews saying it’s “celiac-friendly,” I trusted they knew what they were doing in the kitchen even if the server wasn’t prepared to explain it all to me.

Even with the allergy heads-up, they brought the “gluten-free” muffin out on the same plate as and touching my mom’s glutenous muffin. I wasn’t going to eat it anyway (and I didn’t touch it) since I don’t trust baked goods prepared in a gluten flour-containing facility, and I didn’t ask how & where they were prepared. But maybe that should have been all the information I needed to be more cautious not eat my salad. But I was hungry, and I trusted the reviews and the server and the kitchen’s protocols, and now I’m paying the price :(

I called in advance to let them know I was celiac, and they informed that they prepare the GF food separately. I had a burger and oatmeal raisin cookie, and both tasted great.

Phenomenal from start to finish. All of the staff is incredibly warm and knowledgeable, but Hannah took care of us and answered all of our questions. The owner, Nelson, personally stopped by to walk through the menu with us. We cannot emphasize enough how delicious the food is. 11/10. Dedicated fryer and all staff take precautions to make sure there is no cross-contamination for those of us who are extremely sensitive.

Very Celiac friendly. Menu clearly marked what is GF and Keto (if you’re interested in Keto options). Made a reservation, but they weren’t honoring them upon arrival due to a severe staffing shortage thanks to the pandemic. The host (perhaps owner) was extremely apologetic. It was worth the wait though, which wasn’t excessive. Excellent hamburger on a GF bun that did not fall apart. I ate every bit of it. The burger was cooked to perfection and the cheese perfectly melted with just the right amount of caramelized onions. They will cook the food separately if you have any concerns. Yes, there is a dedicated fryer for fries. Also had a complimentary GF cookie. It was a little hard. It’s the thought that counts. Nice atmosphere and very friendly and accommodating staff. Lots of menu options but I am always happy with eating a burger at a restaurant. Highly recommend.

Wonderful experience! The staff was knowledgeable. They had a lot of GF options, they have a dedicated fryer, and were willing to modify options to make them GF. They even serve you a GF muffin with salad and you get 1 of 3 kinds of cookies. We will definitely be back and recommend others try their delicious food.

The owner came out and talked with us for a while. He was very nice and knowledgeable about gluten allergies and cross contamination. He said he had a separate fryer and used a separate clean pan for fish and other items needed sauté. I was also impressed with his meat selection- they source all of their meat from high quality sources where they know the rancher and can verify it is grass fed, no hormones or antibiotics, etc. he ended talking me into the elk burger on gluten free bun and I also had a side of sweet potato fries. It was all delicious! Definitely will return if I am back in the area.

Absolutely delicious food and I feel fully safe eating here. They have a dedicated kitchen space, dedicated pans, toasters, and utensils. They also have an elevated grill so that all GF items go on top so that nothing with gluten will drop into the GF food. 100% recommend eating here.

There are a ton of GF items on the menu including GF buns, a GF banana nut muffin, and a lot of entrees as well that you can’t find in other restaurants GF (steak tips, shrimp and grits, safe fried foods).

Service was great and very friendly and helpful staff.

Most items other than the breaded fried items are Gf or can be made GF. They are very knowledgeable. GF bread, buns. The amazing banana nut muffins are GF. Separate fryer. They often have GF desserts such as pecan pie. Fresh delicious food and nobody ever gets sick here.

Casual place with tons of amazing GF options, also enjoyable for those in your party without dietary restrictions.

Would go again. Always save 5 stars for over the top fabulous. Blue Star was a pleasant surprise. My husband had tuna with lobster sauce and risotto side. I had a Reuben with fries. Bread was nice and sandwich and fries yummy. Most importantly no negative physical reactions! The food was good quality, tasty and speedy. Server pleasant and willing to clarify our requests, like double checking the pickle was gluten free. We all know how easily we can get glutened. The atmosphere is casual and clean. Parking is ample and easy off and on from the highway. It's in a strip mall area but feels midscale inside. There was space to walk our dog. What more could you ask for?

This place is amazing. Delicious fresh food, tons of gluten free options. The staff and friendly and helpful, although some didn't seem to understand the concept of not being able to have gluten, as she suggested that I could have the pie, just don't eat the crust. That being said the owner/manager certainly did know what being celiac is, so I had full confidence in the food prepared. The menu is clearly marked with what is and isn't GF. Amazing place, we will be returning soon.
