Fantastic experience. Amazing food and great service. We enjoyed the regular chicken tenders and Buffalo as well as French fries, side salad and brisket Mac and cheese and all were fantastic! Highly suggest the food for those with gluten or dairy allergies.

They take extra special care to know your allergies if you eat here regularly and they frequently make special deserts that are safe! Basically anything on the menu can be made gluten free and they note if it can't. All specials are offered gluten free most are offered dairy free!

We found Lil G’s on the last day of our vacation. Food was amazingly good!! Went above and beyond to make this Celiac feel comfortable!! You don’t have to hesitate eating gluten-free here. ❤

Can’t say enough good things. The owner spoke with us in detail about all the care that goes into making sure allergies are taken seriously and that gluten free food is made readily available and free of cross contact. Had maybe the best gluten free/dairy free pizza of my life here. Would highly recommend!!

Really good food. Best GF Italian we’ve had. The owner and our waitress were both celiac. Dedicated fryer and GF bread on the table. Almost all entrees are GF or can be made GF. We had the Fried Mozzarella, real good. Chicken parm. and pasta bolognese, both were great. Three different types of cheese cake, pumpkin and cherry pie. All great. we will definitely be back and make this a regular stop. It is worth driving to.
