The food on the regular menu is marked clearly with "GS" for Gluten Sensitive. they are clear about not having a dedicated kitchen space or area so if you have a true allergy this place may not be for you, but I am gluten intolerant and was very happy!
Never. Eat. Here. They mixed flour into GF sauces.
Waitstaff not at all knowledgable. Asked if the foods on gf menu were cooked in a dedicated fryer and they are not. Waiter said if it's on the gf menu it "should be good". Do not seem educated on what gluten is nor cross contamination.
I had absolutely the worst experience at Houlihan's. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone with Celiac disease. I ordered soup but it came with tortilla chips. I asked them if they made the chips and if so if they had a dedicated fryer. They said they didn't so I got it without the chips. After taking a bite of the soup the waitress came and took it. She said the cheese they put it in was packed in flour. WHAT? They had a number of things on their "Gluten free" menu that were not gluten free. When I questioned the manager he was very arrogant. He said it was really a "Gluten light" menu not a "Gluten free" menu. Funny, it said "Gluten free" on it. I told him there shouldn't be things on the menu that weren't gluten free, he said "Well, I've never had anyone complain that they got sick." I said "We don't complain, we just don't come back." ...and I won't. Mo's Irish Pub is next door and has an excellent gluten free menu, go to Mo's!!
This was a FANTASTIC option for our extremely gluten sensitive family. Their GF buns are DELICIOUS - our fave brand. GF-capable items are clearly marked on the regular menu, AND they have a GF menu. Our server, an ADORABLE girl named Morgan, was helpful and knowledgeable, and she also communicated our needs well with the kitchen and manager. No cross contamination reactions to follow, and they even have creme brulee for dessert!!! We had an EXCELLENT meal and would go back again for sure.
I have Celiac Disease and have eaten at the Lees Summit location several times. I've had their Burger without a bun, their Fries, Salmon, and several of their Salads. I have not had any adverse reactions but I do think they fry their Fries with breaded things so you may want to avoid them if you're vunerable to cross contamination. The Staff hasn't been especially knowledgable so I typically talk to a Manager when I order. They don't have a ton of menu items that are GF but they do have a few options and a great Happy Hour!
There is no longer a gluten free menu, there are gluten sensitive alternatives to a few regular menu items. After speaking with my server explaining my needs, requesting no bun or bacon with my meal, I received both items. They quickly replaced my meal, however within 4 hour after eating my celiac symptoms kicked in. I should have left the restaurant and not gotten anything to eat because there were warning signs in this establishment’s attitude that celiac disorder was not taken seriously. However, being sick for 8 days and losing 10 pounds has made clear we need to advocate for what we need.
They really cared about my daughter’s celiac disease and worked with the kitchen to make sure that her flatbread was safe. She is symptomatic immediately if she has any cross-contamination and we had zero issues. Thank you so much for making dining out enjoyable!
I had dinner here last night and was pleasantly surprised! I thank Terry Holland the manager for a really nice evening! I have celiac, Terry was award of this and made sure my meal was gluten free and was not cross contaminated! I had previous complained that the restaurant not gluten friendly and Terry was quick to respond and make thinks right. I swore I would not eat there again, but glad I gave it a second chance and will not hesitate to eat there again thanks to Terry!
The switches the menu a while back to “gluten friendly” basically they no longer care if your food is gluten free but they can serve you something that doesn’t contain gluten. I got really sick after eating here even though I ordered something they told me wouldn’t be contaminated with wheat from other items on the menu.
Gluten free ingredients they say. No good labeling on the menu. You can substitute the GF bun, but no way to tell if the rest of the ingredients in a particular item are GF. Upon questioning and reading the menu, no significant effort to avoid cross contamination. I got the Cajun Chicken grill with GF bun, but was suspicious of the sauce that came with it, so I asked. Even though I had specified GF prep, they sent the meal out with a sauce that used flour as a thickener.OK if GF is just a dietary preference, but they have a long ways to go to recommend for Gluten Intolerant, let alone Celiac.
They are not gluten-free menu options: they are "gluten-sensitive" options, which is a bogus term that sounds nice but means absolutely nothing since basically the company is not willing to commit the resources to actually make sure food served is gluten-free. Avoid if you have medical reasons to avoid gluten. Indulge if you are a just fad dieting or not actually gluten sensitive.
Horrible! I cannot even begin to tell you how many times i told them i had celiac and could not have gluten. i even spoke to the cook who came to the table. worst food ever. i had good luck with the Springfield location so i thought but as it turns out...they both glutened me! i say poor management responsible for that. they need to educate their employees on the severity of food allergies.
They have revamped their menu to include gluten free options and even organic ones too. The food and gluten free drink options were amazing and there are specials almost daily. I had no reactions from eating here. Be sure to checkout out the all day happy hour on Sundays as well as the 3 course meals for $18.95.
Horrible. Stated twice that I needed a GF bun, was brought a burger on a bun that looked just like everyone else's... it was a regular bun! Then was told I didn't specify... they did being me a gf bun to put the same burger on... needless to say, everyone else ate and I'm still hungry.
After coming here three times and ordering the same thing each time, server informed me that there was no dedicated French fryer despite me asking the same question on the previous visits and being told that the fries were in a dedicated fryer. I had ordered the fries on previous visits based on that information. Manager confirmed no dedicated fryer. I'm also dairy free and I asked what sides could be done gf/df and was told the brown rice. The rice came out covered in margarine and smelling like soy sauce. The rice is not listed on gf menu. Never coming back here. They can't make you a safe meal.
It is not a gluten free menu. They call it gluten sensitive. The menu states that certain things are gluten sensitive but when I asked the waitress(who had no knowledge of the menu) she told me the chef said that some of them were not. Very disappointed.
I'm new to the GF world. Their menu says foods are gluten free. I had the parm fries and even asked the waiter who confirmed they were GF. Didn't think I needed to ask if they had a separate fryer. Needless to say I got sick. I will return to try other options.
Just stopped here with my celiac child, the gf menu listed on their website and the one we were given in the restaurant were different. They fry everything in a common fryer!! They did have gf buns but did not would like they could guarantee anything. We left, not worth making him sick. Nice people just not as advertised 😕
I've eaten here about a half dozen time and loved it until my most recent visit when I found some form of breading in my fish tacos which they said were GF. I asked my server what was it, she proceeded to tell me it was GF and made at a GF station. It was definitely A PIECE OF A CHICKEN STRIP!!! Highly disappointed!!!!!!
