Review


I'd been avoiding Matchbox like the plague after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Last night I was forced to eat there so I thought I would give it a go. The Waitress explained to me that the pizza and Dough was made in an area that was separated from the main kitchen. She recommended that the salads might be the most safe. The salads are mostly full of things that are not Celiac Safe- but the salad I had was very delicious, despite lack of ingredients. I did leave with a tiny headache and some stomach feelings, but that could have been due to the other ingredients. The "Gluten Sensitive Menu" is pretty small compared to their regular menu. I don't imagine I'll go back.

All matchbox pizzas can be made with cauliflower crust. There are a number of entrees that are gluten-sensitive. There are no dedicated fryers.

Cross contamination and only option is salad when they run out of gluten free dough. Which is often.

Celiac friendly?

Wonderful staff, delicious food. I highly recommend the crab & avo appetizer and the salmon salad. The bartenders pour awesome cocktails as well. We will definitely be back!
