I wanted so much to love this. Pancakes were great. I think it was the hash browns. I should have known better, but they said they were gluten free. Either way, I was more than just a little glutened and was very sick, despite using charcoal.
This is my favorite breakfast place. The gluten free bread comes from a local dedicated GF facility (Haven). The bacon, home fries, and eggs are delicious and celiac safe. The people working here seem to know celiac protocol and how to prevent cross contamination.
We have 4 celiacs in our family of 6 and we all very much liked our food! We had omelettes, eggs, toast and chicken club sandwich with fruit. The food was large portions and tasty! Everything was fresh..very good fruit bowl!! They cook pancake and waffle and on separate iron and toast is separate toaster and food came out separated from non gluten food. Staff was awesome and happy to answer questions and knowledgeable i.e. told us the fries are in the same fryer with non gluten food. We will be back next time in Reno!
I went here for breakfast and had a delicious omelet, the cowboy, with house potatoes. And not only was it delicious, but I did not have any symptoms. I will definitely be back there tomorrow for breakfast and any other time I come back to Reno. And I look forward to trying another delicious gluten free meal.
I loved my experience here! the waitress was amazing she was so patient when I asked several questions and went and asked the kitchen several questions. I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease and it's been hard ordering at places always feeling like I'm a pain. but not Lili's they were so friendly and made sure my food was made properly.
Very nice restaurant, knowledgeable wait staff, and both GF and regular food was tasty. The waitress did not hesitate to go back to kitchen several times with questions on GF status of various dishes. Many breakfast and lunch GF options.
Every time I am in Reno Lili’s is my go to restaurant for breakfast (pancakes, French toast, breakfast sandwiches). The staff is knowledgeable about gf/celiac issues and they have separate spaces for preparing gf food to avoid cross contamination. It’s a very friendly place.
I visit Reno a hand full of times a year. Today was the third time I have eaten at Lil's. FANTASTIC gluten free waffles! Real butter and maple syrup. Lots of other gluten and dairy free choices. Prompt seating. Clean. Great service at the right price!
Lili's is amazing. I have been there 8 or so times in the past couple months. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable about what is or isn't gluten free and they are always more than willing to double check for you. I have tried a lot of restaurants trying to find places with gluten free and most of them will slip up after the 2md or 3rd visit. I have never gotten sick from Lili's. I think Lili's has just more integrity than most restaurants. At any rate, these people do an amazing job and actually seem to care - and it is very refreshing. 10/10 would recommend
In adding to the other fantastic reviews, let me just say YES!!!! As a newly diagnosed celiac, I was terrified of eating anything outside of my own kitchen. Had lunch there and not only are there many many GF options, our server Marie was really knowledgable. I had a cheeseburger and fruit. My burger was perfectly cooked, and the onion, tomato and lettuce were very fresh as was the fruit. I will be back!!!!
Traveling cross country with my fiancé and found this place on my app. As a celiac traveling with allergies is difficult but this restaurant had knowledgeable staff! I got the gluten free Belgium waffles and a fried egg. I had no reaction at all and it was delicious! Best gf waffles I've had yet in my 3 years of being a celiac! If I'm ever back in Reno I'm coming back for those waffles!
This place is very accommodating for gluten free allergies. TJ came out to personally discuss our gluten free options. He explained thoroughly specific items that need to be avoided like anything fried due to cross contamination. Even the children's menu can be made gf! The kids had the pancakes and grilled cheese which were delicious. Both said its the best they ever had! I had the monte cristo modified with gluten free bread and it was amazing! Tj said it would be an experiment and it turned out so yummy! We will be definitely visiting every time we come to Reno! It is a MUST to come here to eat if you are ever in the neighborhood!!!
TJ, the manager, is awesome! I am highly sensitive celiac and also dairy free. He is so kind and respectful... He and his wife, the cook, have come up with some amazing off menu treats (with advance notice) just for me and my husband (gf). The food is excellent, and, after three delightful meals, I have not gotten sick at all. As other celiacs understand, not getting sick from eating out is a wonderful thing! I highly recommend this restaurant, just talk to TJ if you are celiacs.
Lili's was a popular place which is always a good sign. As the previous reviewer mentioned we didn't have to ask for a gluten free menu because it was right there on the table! The choices were minimal, GF pancakes and the Breakfast Sandwich was it but man the breakfast sandwich was amazing!!!
First, thank you to all the other reviews. It really helps me traveling to find good, gluten free food. So, Lili's Restaurant and Bar has awesome gluten free food. Every table has the gluten free menu right on it. No need to ask. The food, I was told, is prepared in a separate area. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, and sandwiches. Cute atmosphere and friendly service. My Breakfast Sandwich was awesome!!!! :-)
Service was amazing, Amanda has celiac and we went here a half hour before they close with no issues. TJ took the time to come over and explain the gluten free menu and options and asked for our opinion and thoughts on our food their menu and what we like to see at gluten free restaurants. You can tell they take great pleasure and pride in what they do! This was a great experience and I plan to come back every time I come back to Reno. Thanks to everyone that made our visit such an awesome one! -also highly reactive celiac here and no reaction whatsoever!! Double bonus!
What a great dining experience! From the moment we walked in everyone on the staff was super friendly! The gluten free menu had pancakes and French toast-what a treat. And my burger with an Udis bun was one of the best I've had. Very knowledgeable staff and very busy local place. Loved it!
Amazing service. I literally just walked out and the service and attention to detail was phenomenal. They asked the severity of my allergy. They took the time to ask me how I liked my food. I had gf pancakes- tasted so good. We are visiting family here in Reno and they brought me some gluten free French toast to try (I didn't even ask!) as we were finishing up since I might not get to come back. Most friendly gf restaurant I have been to. And the nicest staff you can imagine. I suggest anyone with celiac a give this place a try (:
