Amazing experience!! Gave us the allergy menu so I could look over every item throughout the whole dinner. The bread was so good and I loved that almost everything there is gluten free! They were very knowledgeable and made sure to explain the ingredients in every item we got.

Breads were gluten free and almost all meats. Unfortunately the one chicken option was marinaded in beer. Still an excellent dining experience and they have a binder with all foods labeled for allergies

Hands down Celiac paradise. Slightly expensive but well worth it, even if you only get the salad bar. Don't be fooled, the salad bar has more than enough to keep you satisfied! They even have an allergy menu so you know what is "off limits."

The amount of food you can eat here is incredible. They have a GF menu, and everyone is very knowledgeable as well. It was amazing to have rolls at dinner, and I left very full.

Carnival for the Carnivores!!!! Everything is GF except chicken legs. Impeccable service, especially if you go before the dinner rush. Creme Brûlée is our favorite dessert! Go hungry and wear loose pants 😊

Fantastic place! The entire buffet is GF! All served carved meats are GF except the chicken legs. The food is fantastic and you can not stop eating the GF rolls at the table. The service is top notch. Expensive but worth it on a special occasion!

I couldn't write a review fast enough about this place just loved it!!! The manager was very aware of celiac and took me around the Buffett and showed me what I could and couldn't eat and then went through the meats with me so awesome. The food was fantastic worth every penny! If I ever find another Fongo de Chao on my travels I will eat there again. Recommend it to anyone who has celiac or who is gluten free:) I had no problems. ( I always wait until the next morning to write my reviews lol)

Be sure to ask for their allergen list print out. Very easy to read and includes everything available from the meats to the market bar. Don't be worried about the table bread, cheese bread is made with tapioca starch. The meats are brought out seperately so cross contamination (from chicken dishes) was not a worry. Even GF dessert available!

Almost all of the salad bar is gluten free and all meats except one or two were gluten free! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and explained what dishes were not gluten free. It is my fiancee’s favorite restaurant (celiac, highly sensitive to cross contamination).
