    It was amazing. Had the nachos with beef brisket. OMG!! They have a dedicated fryer.

    Excellent care of celiacs and others with food allergies. You do need to tell your server before you order and they are trained to get help if they don't understand a request. Extra care will be taken in the kitchen, as well. Like any place that isn't 100% gluten free, take charge of your order. I've even had them cater an event for me, and they prepared everything separately. We are a family of celiacs, so we are constantly on our toes.

    Claxon's has an extensive gluten free menu: steaks, brisket, chili, burgers. There is also a separate fryer dedicated to gluten free French fries and chicken wings. It was true heaven for a Celiac!! I also did not get upcharged for the gluten free hamburger bun. Delicious food and great service! I will definitely be back next time I'm in town.

    I'm uncertain about Claxon's, I felt like the food was really good. I did, however, feel sort of sick the rest of the day after eating here. I think you have to be extra careful with places that list things on their menu with just a symbol. I never said anything about needing my food to be specifically gluten free, I just ordered what was marked.

    First time was a great experience .... second time not so much. Although the service and food was good, I got glutened bad. I am normally not too sensitive, but I got very sick.
