*Almost* everything in the place is gluten free. When I told the server I had a gluten allergy he had the manager come over to speak to me. She (the manager) showed me the two meats that were not gluten free due to a marinade or rub (the sausage and the bacon wrapped chicken leg and filet) and walked me through the salad bar to show me what was not gluten free. Several of the salad dressings she could not guarantee were safe due to label concerns, but there was a selection of oils and vinegars so it really didn't matter to me. The sides and table bread are also gluten free - mashed potatoes, fried bananas and fried polenta sticks. The bread is traditional Brazilian Pao de Queso, which is made with cassava flour (naturally gluten free). I should warn you, though - that bread is highly addictive. They also have Mexican Coca Cola (made with real cane sugar) in a glass bottle.

Almost everything is gluten free, including the bread at every table!! Our server was VERY knowledgeable about cross contamination and said I would be safe eating off the Buffett (I chose not to), but to avoid the hummus, chicken and bread. I tested the bread at the table with my Nima, tested GF. I’m VERY sensitive and did not get sick.

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!
