I love how P.F. Chang’s is working on making a gluten-free option available for Celiacs. I ordered Fried Rice two times in two of their places, and they had a gluten-free option.

We shared an appetizer of chicken lettuce wraps…always been served with 1/2 rounds of lettuce ‘cups’. Here was served with small pcs of lettuce that could not hold chicken or sauce. I had a GF chicken dish, my mate (not GF) got GF Mongolian Beef; not as good as regular he said. Serv was great. I was specific,being Celiac. Asked ?’s. Staff was receptive but very few (#4)☹ gf items. They used to have a lot of choices + the chocolate bombe w/raspberry sauce dessert was delish!

I am quite sensitive to gluten and they have always done a great job! I’ve never been sick here and the gluten free options are numerous. One of the owners has a CD child so he fully gets it. He recommended not eating sushi due to the Sushi vinegar but they have other great options!

If you tell them you are Celiac they are very accommodating and careful with cross contamination. The mongolian beef, lettuce wraps and fried rice are amazing!

I give them one star only because I have to, I ate there a little over a month ago, I told the waitress I was celiac and ordered off the gluten free menu. I got the fried rice with my meal and did not notice it was not in a gluten free dish, I got very sick, later I called the manager to let him know what happened. He seem very nice and assured me he would get with his staff and he offered to send me a gift card so I would his place another chance. I gave him my address and have yet to receive a thing

Finally a P. F. Chang’s in Waco! I’ve got many times in other cities and have never had issues. They use plates with their logo to indicate that the food is GF and the staff have been very helpful.

Several items on the menu said they could be made gluten-free. They have gold plates set aside for GF meals only (regular on black plates) to keep things separate. The celiacs in our group had Pad Thai, vegetable fried rice, beef with broccoli and rice, and gluten-free chocolate soufflé. Our server was good at answering questions and brought out gluten-free soy sauce packets. Everything was delicious and no one got sick!

The menu has everything marked with GFO - gluten free upon request. I have eaten here several times and I always have a good experience. Today I got beef with broccoli, brown rice and the chicken lettuce wraps.

they do have a separate kitchen for the gf food and offer gf soy sauce if you ask. every time in-store i get the gf vegetarian fried rice and its always amazing. the only downside is that every time i order to-go the rice has no sauce or flavor at all. also everything that isnt pre-made can be made gf.

We ordered takeout from the gluten free category on their website. All items were marked with a sticker when we picked them up. I did not get sick.
