Very impressed. The waitress asked if it was a wheat allergy and then alerted the chef and said he would change gloves. Fries were made in a separate fryer and they have many gf meals.

They have a separate fryer for gluten-free French fries! I checked and both the location on Topanga Blvd in the valley and the location in Thousand Oaks have dedicated fryers for French fries only. When I asked they did warn me that they can’t guarantee nothing else could ever accidentally get in the fryer because other stuff is nearby in the kitchen, but they said nothing breaded ever goes in that fryer. So I ate the fries and they were good and I didn’t get sick.

Also, if you order through doordash then some items (like the fries) have a button you can check that says “make it gluten-free”!

Was told a menu item was gluten free but when I reordered it on my next visit I was told it was not. This leaves very little trust on their knowledge of the GFmenu selections

I have eaten here a handful of times since being diagnosed as gluten intolerant. They have a pretty extensive gluten free menu, but I’ve had mixed results in eating there safely. I think it comes down to which server you get and how seriously they take your gluten allergy. The first 3 times I ate there, I was fine. Then over the next 3 times, I got sick 2/3 times, unfortunately.

Though the menu says that they have a lot of gluten free options, when I asked I found out that the GF pasta is made in the same water as normal pasta so it is very contaminated. My waitress was sweet but didn’t understand how serious I was about my allergy. I ended up getting grilled chicken, green beans, and mashed potatoes and didn’t get sick. Definitely be very cautious and ask the right questions before ordering.

Ordered gluten free pasta with an explication to the server about my celiac and it came with a regular noodle in it.
