Certified Gluten-Free by MenuTrinfo
Tourist and ate here. GF on menu but not for celiac. Fries are in same oil as breaded items, one toaster for GD and regular bread, garlic mayo is communal dish, nothing separate for celiac. Nice place but clearly there is a misconception between GF and celiac. Ask lots of questions.
I appreciate the staff was knowledgeable about gluten, the food tasted great, & I felt no negative gluten effects. My quibble is one others have noted — the menu lists french fries as GF, but it’s a shared fryer. That’s what is keeping it from a 4-star rating. Double check with waiter before ordering
NOT a Gluten Free restaurant at all! We were very specific to waiter that our daughter is celiac. Asked that the GF pasta be cooked in separate pot with new water. Unfortunately pasta that was delivered to us wasn’t even GF pasta, only found this out after daughter ate some and she felt sick within minutes. Also, items on their menu state GF but are fried or cooked with regular items.
Mad I went here. Hashbrowns are marked GF. They aren't, as there are fried in shared fryer with breaded chicken. I speficially told my server gluten allergy, and a while later asked how severe, because hashbrowns are in shared fryer. Ended up getting an egg, GF toast which was similar to Udis, so ok but not great, and fruit. I went based on other write-ups and it wasn't anything special. The server also didn't ask about splitting check and brought it to us and we had to ask to split 2 ways between 2 couple.
I'm not sure why the menu is "certified gluten free," because they do not have a dedicated fryer. The server told me that my safest bet would be the things marked "GF" on the menu, and when I pointed out that fries are marked GF but there isn't a dedicated fryer, he had no response. Restaurants need to be more aware about dedicated fryers, or at least explain on their menu. Left with only salads as legitimate options, and the one I ordered was mediocre. Frustrated that I trusted the "certified" menu badge on this app, as well as the restaurant's online menu. Did not feel comfortable!
A diner without the diner look. it's a nice place with gluten free markings on the menu. the food is good, if a bit mondaine. I was nervous getting in because of the fast pace but had no adverse effects from the food. the portions are fair and don't leave you wanting much more. gluten free waffles and toast available. the wait to be seated even during peak time on Sunday morning was only about 10 minutes. tl;dr - food alright. basically a diner. gluten free menu markings. would visit again.
This little cafe is pretty much the realization of my celiac dreams. The sandwich was structurally unstable, but what gluten free sandwich is? My lunch was delicious, and I didn't need to explain the gluten free thing over and over. The location is a little out of the way for my every day (I'm up here for a conference), but if there was a location near Farragut, I'd be all over this on the regular!
this place had a fairly big menu for lunch, sandwiches salads and apps. I got the blt and the bread was delicious. to the point where I thought it was not gluten free. By the end of the sandwich it was crumbling a little ( as all gluten free breads do) but it was still delicious. They have the separate fryalators so I had sweet potato fries which were also delicious. the bartender did not seem to be as knowledgeable about gluten free but if you ask the right questions and talk to management you'll be okay.
Great menu items. I love brunching at open city. The staff is not the best in terms of catering to gluten free customers but if you are careful and attentive you can dine around it. For example, every time I have ordered GF and explained that my dish must be GF the servers always bring coffee with a cookie on the saucer. I go here all the time because the food is great but make sure you ask questions, confirm that a dish is GF and if you have doubts, double check!!
