They are very considerate when I order gluten free bread for toast and inform them of my allergies. I'm sure other locations might be less kind but this one is great.

Cross contact is possible I'm sure, but I believe they car enough to make some effort

The menu is not very clearly labeled, but many things can be made GF. Our waitress was not super knowledgeable or helpful. I had to rely on my own knowledge. I had the healthy turkey with Udis GF toast. It was delicious! Some of the lunch items looked very good, but I just didn't know for sure if they were GF.

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.
