Because I have celiac disease and was on a road trip when we stopped at Cotton Patch Cafe, it was very important that I had a meal that I wouldn't regret the next day. We found the restaurant using the findmeglutenfree app and called ahead to make sure they still had a GF menu; they did, and we asked for it specifically when we arrived.

Our server was not well-educated about the gluten free diet, but she made sure the kitchen staff knew it was imperative that my meal be GF. When my food arrived, it was obvious that the kitchen staff was well-versed and knew how to prepare a safe GF meal.

I ordered the Light Blackened Tilapia (smaller portion than the regular Blackened Tilapia). This is normally served over seasoned rice with a side of steamed vegetables, but the GF menu stated that the rice was not GF and a substitution could be made. I ordered a second portion of the steamed vegetables - which were broccoli, carrots, and squash.

The tilapia was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Though the vegetables were not seasoned, they were steamed just until tender, which is how I like them. I put a little butter on them, and they were quite nice. It was a delicious meal that I felt safe in eating. Even better, I had absolutely no adverse reactions to it the next day.

Their gluten free menu is wrong. They have Mac and cheese marked gluten free and it is not. I had already eaten some when a different waitress who was more knowledgeable warned me.

Went for lunch. Waiter was willing to check on all options for me and they substituted for items I couldn't eat. Very friendly and knowledgeable.

The manager went out his way to go over possible options for me to eat as I am GF and dairy free. I am not celiac but try to watch cross contamination closely. I’m not sure if this place is 100% safe for someone with celiac? The manager did however try to be accommodating and avoid cross contamination.
