    Food was good, but I was so very sick before we got out of the parking lot. Avoid for celiacs.

    Helpful staff and good GF pizza, but service can be very slow. the Cootie Browns in Bristol has even faster service and nicer staff!

    Few gluten free options. Shared fryer so French fries not GF. Asked for baked beans since I couldn't have fries. Charged 3.50 extra for the beans even though they were a substitute for fries. They do not tell you the upcharge. I do not mind paying but it would be a nice courtesy if they would tell you it is extra. Chips not GF. Just very few options. Philly cheesesteak was good but customer service not so much.

    I ate the gluten free pizza. the quality was poor and taste was odd. The server was not knowledgeable about gluten free. I have Celiac Disease and was very ill after having eaten there. I will never eat at Cooties Brown's again.

    Are they capable to do it very much so. Is the food good yes. Are they celiac friendly I'd have to say "maybe". If you are just sensitive then you will be ok but if it's about your long term health I wouldn't chance it. They are not certified likewise their suppliers aren't so eat at your own risk.

    Stopped by when I was in the area for work after reading the good reviews. It did not disappoint. My server was extremely knowledgable and friendly. I had the Northern California Pizza and the g-free crust was great. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in town.

    Loved the food. My daughter has a gluten intolerance and also treats psoriasis though her diet. Being from out of town we decided to try a couple of items. The hamburger buns was the best we have eaten and the pizza is amazing. We can't wait to go back. I thi

    The food was AWESOME. The server was very knowledgeable and was able to explain how the kitchen handles gluten free orders. Just about everything on their menu can be ordered gluten free. There is however an extra charge $1 for gf hamburger buns. This isn't very shocking since gf hamburger buns run $5 for 4 in the grocery store. I will definitely be back. This place will likely turn into a regular stop for my gf family.

    Very good gluten free sandwich! You can get a GF sub here. I was not charged extra for gluten free handling so I'm not sure what those reviews are referring to, but perhaps they don't do it anymore. I wish they had a printed gluten free menu. The server was knowledgable, but I like being able to see all my choices without having to inquire about specific items individually.

    I am in Johnson City for work and found this spot through this app. They were very friendly and knowledgable about their GF options, and the variety was wide. I had a turkey burger on gf flatbread that was delicious, and a Brie and pesto dip, served with the gf flatbread as well. The non-celiacs in my group also enjoyed the gf appetizer. I definitely recommend this spot.

    Pizza is ok...staff and customer service leave a lot to be desired. If you need any thing changed from their menu to accommodate your specific allergies, be prepared to pay extra, because their policy 'is to make this easy on their kitchen staff'. So much for customer service and helping the customer.

    This place is a must!!! They have a large menu of gluten free options. You can order any of their pizza gluten free. The Caribbean pizza is amazing! I highly recommend that you try it. My only complaint is that I live over 2 hours away:(

    The pizza they create and serve at Cootie Brown's is absolutely the VERY best GF pizza I've ever had!! (my short list includes Mellow Mushroom, Dominoe's, Beau Jeau's, Z'pizza and even Udi's Delivery in Arvada) Their crust is a rice/tapioca combo, but they must do something special in the kitchen that they didn't mention, because it was absolutely delicious! I had the meat lovers pizza and could only eat half of it - it's also the largest GF pizza I've ever had! It was the cheapest for the size GF pie I've ever had as well .... You'll be impressed. I only WISH they'd franchise their restaurant so I could be closer to one!!
