I am bummed. Food was delicious but my stomach is paying bad. I told the server I was extremely allergic to gluten and she seemed understanding. I shouldn't have came here. ☹ it's things like this that make me never feel safe eating out. I know there is a warning with it being a chain but at other locations I haven't had a problem.

The waitresses here always make sure my order is correct and often detect any issues before I do. I have other allergies besides gluten and they’ve always been able to accommodate my needs. The food is always great and they have a menu online that outlines the allergens in all their menu items.

Have eaten here twice since finding out I have celiac. They have a long menu that lists all the allergens for each dish. Very helpful if you are avoiding more than just gluten. Food is terrific. Great staff.

My wife is celiac. We have eaten there a dozen times without problems. She would be sick before we get to the car if contaminated. Thought I should write this review.

Explained to our waiter Miquel that I was Celiac and also had Alpha-Gal (he was excellent). He made sure that I did not have any CC. The fried eggs, grits, potatoes turkey sauage gravy(which is GF) along with the GF bread was absolutely amazing. Would recommend.

I ate here today. I asked for a gluten free menu and was given a nutrition menu to download. The menu had gluten or wheat under almost everything because toast or bread was involved. It was impossible to know if any other ingredients had gluten. I was left with the menu to download. Finally I spoke to the manager. He said it was a corporate decision to not mark on the menu what could be made gluten free. There were 2 items that stated gluten free. I asked about a specialty item that was gluten free but had to speak to him to determine this. He did comp my lunch and was cordial. I explained that if a corporation made it that difficult that I would be eating where the menu is marked. They made it too difficult to eat here. I was not glutened. I ordered shrimp and grits. It was a miserable lunch that made me feel like a weirdo for asking to protect my health.

My waitress asked if the request for no gluten was a preference or allergy. I informed her of having celiac . This is not a dedicated gluten-free restaurant so they CAN NOT guarantee against cross contamination. The cook did however made sure to change gloves an cook my food in separate plans. He did not toast my gluten free bread to lower the risk of cross contamination.
