    Bar/restaurant with a buzzy atmosphere. Barman was knowledgeable about gluten free options, friendly and helpful. Food was only average, though, and I left wondering why this place had been so highly recommended...

    Fish tacos! There are some great options for eating here and I felt very well taken care of. Good prices and love the outdoor patio - especially at night! Sandwiches can be on gf bread which is nice but no fries etc. for you!

    Great restaurant in Durham. They have gluten free beer, rubens on gf bread and gf banana pudding! What more could u ask for? They are very accommodating to gluten free people.

    Grilled pimento cheese on GF bread is amazing! It's sad that they don't have a dedicated fryer, though...

    review only based on the beer list. they serve omission. update: weren't able to grill a sandwich on a clean pan. Disappointed. Not the most friendly staff...not very willing to spend time talking to me even when they weren't busy.

    A great informal dining space with very good food and GF-knowledgeable waitstaff. 1) I had a truly great fish taco (grilled fish, corn tortilla), but there were several more good choices I could have gone with. 2) Even better, my wife ordered the special, which included a local sausage. I asked our waiter if he could find out whether or not it was GF, in case I wanted a bite. To my surprise, he already knew that the sausage was not GF. 3) They have Omission beer!

    three words: sunday brunch buffet. everything was divine and they even made me a special banana pudding b/c the one on the buffet had nilla wafers. take that, golden corral! also fab patio for summer evening drinks.

    They don't have a gf menu but have gf bread and will work with you. I had sausage and peppers on GF toast. I had hoped to get GF fried chicken based on a previous review but they don't have a dedicated fryer, so the chicken would have been cooked in oil with gluten food. For that same reason I couldn't have the French fries. The waitress also said that the corn tortillas were made locally in a facility that also makes flour tortillas and that she couldn't guarantee that they didn't have gluten in them. So as far as getting GF food there, your best bet is one of the sandwiches/burgers on GF bread.

    This place is great! They can make the fried chicken GF by using cornstarch, and the servers are very accommodating and helpful! They also have great fish tacos that are grilled and they will provide corn tortillas. Everything is so fresh and delicious!!!

    This restaurant is incredible. There is no gf menu, but the owner's wife has Celiac and the servers were very knowledgable. I had the pork chop with mashed potatoes, roasted apples, and arugula. My husband had the tamale with black beans. All was amazing, local, and fresh. Well worth a stop!
