Some of the best gluten free options I’ve seen out there since finding out I had celiac 10 years ago! Fried calamari used to be my favorite and I could never have it, but Next Door offers the only gluten free calamari I’ve ever come across and it’s fantastic! No gluten free pasta, but their burgers and soup are both incredible too! Celiac makes it hard to have fun finding new restaurants sometimes, but Next Door changed that for me and offers a really fun experience of trying new gluten free items you usually can’t find anywhere else!

Server says it is a shared fryer, so several items listed GF are subject to cc. Just be careful what you order! I did appreciate her knowledge and letting me know.

The staff was knowledgeable and accommodating. Enjoyed my meal. I also used my Nima to test my food. Had the Pineapple Express burger, no chips, double the simple salad, and Gf chocolate chip cookie. Would be 5 stars but they were having a few issues with being out of menu items.

I have been here a couple of times and eaten different items. I always specify that I have Celiac and they are extra careful about cross-contamination and the food is great!

Ordered hummus marked gluten free and chicken bites marked gluten free. Started to feel bad, I asked again to confirm if they are gluten free. She said yes they have no gluten in them but are made in a shared fryer 😫 containing gluten ingredients. I usually ask this before ordering but was overly confident in the abundance of gluten free items on the menu that were fried, I was never at a place that marked them GF and used the same fryer. Lesson learned

Tried it out because of reviews of other chains and I was not disappointed! Waitress was very aware of celiac, and the table next to me was also celiac (always a good sign). Plenty of gluten free options and delicious food. Didn’t get sick and will be back!!

Almost everything on the menu is GF! The wait staff was super knowledgeable and made sure to make notes when ordering. They also have a gf menu for kids! It was so nice to have a GF family dinner out.

One of my new favorite restaurants!! Lucky to have Illinois' only location near me! Favorites: Chicken bites (buffalo, Sriracha, salt n pepper)--all awesome; Sriracha Shrimp Bowl-spectacular; Cuban-nice change of pace!; Fries are good. Mediocre: Smashers (fingerling potatoes--very greasy) Would love it if they introduced something with more crispiness--like loaded waffle fries or something. Burger was awesome, now they switched from bun to bread and the bread has a rice flour "taste" that's off-putting. I'm very sensitive to gluten and trust this place.

First and foremost this gluten friendly menu isn’t celiac safe. There is no dedicated fryer. The restaurant was able to modify a dish so I could eat it. While the dish was good I wouldn’t go back given the limited menu.

Next Door did a fantastic job handling celiac disease and preventing cross contamination. They have a separate fryer, sanitize and take all precautions when preparing your food. Almost all items can be made GF. They also make the most amazing chocolate chip cookies!

Staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We were, however, very disappointed when we were told on our last visit that the menu changed with an addition of fried fish, which meant the fryers were no longer dedicated GF. What a bummer! My 10 year old was pretty disappointed that he couldn’t eat any of the food from the fryer. This was one of the only really safe places for Celiacs in town.

We told the server I was celiac and my daughter is gluten intolerant. He seemed very educated. Then our daughter was brought a regular grilled cheese. They corrected it. Then brought a different desert than we ordered. Supposedly gluten free. But, at this point I was nervous and couldn’t relax.

Great place. Very knowledgeable about GF and cross contamination. Fries and kale chips are done in a separate, celiac friendly frier. I had a salmon bowl and my wife the ancho chicken bowl; both were delicious. Tasty mixed drinks too. Give it a try.

Really good celiac awareness - I’ve eaten here 3 times in the last year without issue. Waitstaff is knowledgeable about cross contamination. Fryer is not dedicated GF so many of the appetizers are out if you have Celiac but good sandwiches and salads that can be made GF

Went there for lunch with our daughters (2 have celiac). Their menu clearly states what can be prepared GF. The server explained how our GF meals would be prepared vs the gluten containing ones. The burgers were amazing! We also got GF ice cream sandwiches, which were ice cream between two soft, chewy, delicious GF chocolate chip cookies. Our girls experienced no cross contamination and we all had a great meal. We'd definitely go back.

Update: Within the last month a menu item was added that makes the fryers unsafe for Celiacs. Rating changed from five to three stars and hoping to have a reason to change it back. We plan to come back. Farm to table local sourcing approach with games available for kids and adult to play while waiting for food.

There was a wide assortment of Gluten Free options that all actually sounded good and were still healthy. They couldn’t guarantee gluten free fries from the frier but they had plenty of other choices. The food had great flavor and did not make either of my daughter and I sick. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about Gluten Free options. When he asked if we were sharing food, the cooks split our burger and meal completely. Great place, very nice environment! Would recommend.

Awesome! Barb, our server talked to me about how my son’s meal would be prepared since he has celiac disease. Tons of GF options-even things that usually aren’t-like chicken fingers. All of my kids loved this place, which is rare. They have board games and pop comes in glass bottles, which they thought was awesome. Prices are not astronomical, but this was definitely considered a treat for us. We will be back!

They do a great job with food allergies and are very knowledgeable. They also offer food that isn’t normally “gluten free,” which is always special for us. They have a spicy, crispy shrimp bowl that is awesome.
