Buzzard Billy's has an extensive gluten-free menu with Cajun food, pasta, chicken fingers and sandwiches. I have been multiple times and ordered gluten-free Jambalaya pasta, red beans & rice with andouille sausage, chicken fingers, and chili with sausage/alligator. Buzzard Billy's also has gluten free beer. The location and atmosphere are great too! I have Celiac Disease and I have dined at Buzzard Billy's numerous times with no issues.
10/10 would recommend. I'm a very sensitive celiac. I was astonished at the number of options I had to choose from. The waitress immediately recognized that I had the gluten free menu and gave me some recommendations. I got the the garlic parmesan chicken sandwich on a gluten free bun. It was to die for. When I'm in town I will make sure that this is where I come to eat.
So very disappointed! We came in with a group of 9 so I know it was a “large” group but we watched so many tables come and go and then after we were finally seated we waited forever for a waitress and then even longer for our food. Again we watched several tables of 4-5 come and go over and over. Then just one meal came out for our table and over 30 minutes later we finally complained. We were there over two hours and when we finally complained the manager came. Between him and our waitress they blamed us for being a large group. I’m not impressed at all. Food was decent but nothing spectacular or worth the wait. My son is very gluten intolerant and didn’t feel well at all after his meal.
The flavor was pretty good, service was ok, but I was very ill with major gastrointestinal symptoms and a debilitating migraine following my meal here. I won't go into details but it was the worst episode of illness I've had in a long while. I'm really not certain it was gluten or if I was potentially food poisoned or what but my symptoms, which began a few hours after eating here, made for a rough day and a half. I won't personally risk eating here again.
Lots of GF options, fun atmosphere, friendly staff! Don't get too excited when you see GF chicken tenders, though. They are really just chicken nuggets in the shape of tenders. That was the only part we were disappointed in. Would definitely visit there again when passing through!
The Chicken Fettuccine Alfredeaux was very good. A lot of alfredeaux sauce, with Cajun spiced. A lot of sauce, not too thin, not terribly thick: just right. Tasty enough you want to lick the bowl! And Crispin Pacific Pear cider, which was also very good. all of this was gluten free. excellent meal. they have a separate menu for gluten free. I will be back.
As others have mentioned Buzzard Billy's has an entire gluten free menu separate from the regular menu and it is huge! I have tried the red beans & rice, jalapeno chicken tender sandwich, and coleslaw and all have been awesome! For dessert they have had an Eli's brand salted caramel cheesecake that uses almonds in the crust so it's gluten free! Wonderful place for many gluten free options!
Separate (and extensive) gf menu. The burger buns are exceptional and don't have a sponge like texture like others do. They make many dressings in house so you don't have to worry about soy either, but I would always ask if you are that sensitive. I recently had the jalapeño chicken sandwich and it was Very good! The bananas foster is also gf and amazing!
They have a separate gluten free menu and the staff are very helpful. They did give me a side of regular bread (in a separate bag) with my gluten free order, so I’m not sure if the wait staff communicated that I’m celiac to the kitchen staff. I believe the GF entree was safe though.
I have eaten here many times. The ONLY time I have gotten sick was my own fault. I was ordering off of the gluten free menu but didn't specify to the server who was also taking orders from those that were eating off the regular menu. I can't fault them for that. the food has always been excellent and the servers knowledgeable about gluten free. Last I knew there was a bartender that works there that has Celiac and gave great recommendations on drinks. I'm pretty nervous about eating places, I never feel that way eating here. Now if only they would get a dedicated fryer and make their gator fingers gluten free... one can wish
I am a very sensitive celiac. I've been here twice. Both times I got the pasta primavera with the rasta sauce. First time I felt totally fine afterwards and I went back! Second time it was much busier than before (maybe it was more likely to have cross contamination) and I got sick. Very good food. I also tried the gluten free salted caramel cheesecake the first time (also amazing) and had no issues. Great place for the gluten intolerant, they have a whole separate menu! Celiacs.....may be risky, but i would still chance this over many other restaurants.
Great GF menu. My daughter has Celiac and a severe nut allergy combined with being a very picky eater which makes dining out really hard. Their GF menu provided her many options that looked good to her. She ended up going with the GF Shrimp Penne Alfredo which she loved. They also offer a half order on some of their dishes which is good for kids. Service was great. Our server even came back to tell us that he confirmed with the kitchen staff that the dish was also nut free. We definitely will return when back in town.
I am a pretty sensitive Celiac but Have eaten here many times and never had a problem. Pastas and jambalaya are awesome! Blackened chicken/salmon and rice is also great. They do use shared fryers so don't eat the nachos or fries if you have an allergy. It's a popular restaurant right in the middle of DT La Crosse so don't be shocked if there is a short wait. Can also order for pick up.
