    All American dining food with a real understanding of celiac disease. They will heat up a new batch of oil in the fryer for you. The garlic fries are superb!

    it's our go to spot for safe eats. the owner is amazing, checks on customers and has first hand experience with celiac. the food and drinks are great. reminds us of the days before we went gluten free.

    I had really high expectations since this place has gotten great reviews on here in terms of being celiac safe. When I spoke w the manager on the phone ahead of time, she assured me they had many safe items, but in person I learned that they don't have separate cooking supplies (like not even a designated gluten free colander for the "celiac safe" pasta) and she basically pushed me off onto our "premiere server" (her words) to ask questions. Then as others have mentioned, the gluten free items are not identified on the long menu, and although the server responded that "many things" were gf, it was like pulling teeth to get info about which meals are gf (the corn dogs are not, that I know) and how things are cooked. Glad to see others have had good experiences, and my celiac daughter didn't get sick so id be willing to try it again, but my experience (and they were not busy at all) was not at all like other reviewers' experiences in terms of feeling assured that they knew what they were doing. And the food was just okay at best.

    service was accommodating, but while the gf choices were vast, the quality was lacking both times i went here. I really wanted to enjoy the experience because of the positive reviews i saw, but the dishes were under seasoned, overcooked, and nothing tasted fresh. Perhaps i just chose the wrong dishes (jambalaya & sonoran Chipotle chicken pasta), but beyond the initial surprise of the variety of gluten free options nothing left me wanting to go back.

    Sets the standard for how a restaurant should provide service to people with celiac or other food allergies. Thank you!

    The food was good and the service excellent. I felt comfortable that they knew what they were doing. And, they have a separate fryer! 😃 The restaurant is getting tired looking and the decor could use updating, but I'll be back for the excellent gf choices.

    This is a family favorite for us. Many restaurants offer gluten free but most don't understand cross-contamination. Eddie Papa's understands, cares and goes to great lengths to ensure our safety. Can't say enough great things about this place.

    Eddie Papa's is always great. I have gotten sick there 1 time in the many times I've eaten there, and I'm not really sure how it happened because they are always so careful, but every other time I've been has been excellent. It's great to be able to eat fries and grilled cheese and everything I could possibly ever want, and the food is so great! I've actually had the manager personally speak to me about hot fudge they left off a Grasshopper Sundae I ordered because it was thickened with flour; he let me know that they substituted the regular chocolate sauce instead. The staff always seems very knowledgeable and I feel safe eating there. Highly recommend this restaurant!

    The staff is very knowledgeable about GF options. We've had no problems. It's nice for the kids to be able to enjoy fries with their burgers or chicken fingers.

    A good place to get a sandwich WITH fries! My only complaint is that the food is too heavy for my tastes. But...fries! Sweet potato or regular.

    they'll make anything on the menu gluten free... including fried items. they even dump out their friers so you don't get cross contamination issues. also love the red velvet waffle that they make for brunch. yum!
