    Excellent food and great knowledgeable staff! Executive Chef Maria is AWESOME!!! The best place in town for gluten free food! Only 2 things on the entire menu are not gluten free (Mac & cheese and biscuits).

    We have been to Rack & Helen’s Social House a couple of times. The first time we went, I Nima tested the sweet fried pickles, their dips, the fried chicken sandwich on a gf bun, some of my husband’s fries and the coleslaw. Everything came back GF! Today we went and got the chips and dip, the Cubano and pizzas for our family with gf crusts. Everything was great, and it’s nice to have an option of traditional American food that’s celiac safe. :)

    This is a casual restaurant set on a golf course. My wife, who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about 10 years ago said the pulled pork sandwich she had was maybe the best GF sandwich she’s had. She usually discards a GF bun as she finds them so disappointing. She loved the bun here though. We were told everything on the menu, except for the Mac ‘n cheese, could be made GF, including the pizzas. Wish we lived closer as we would be regular customers.

    Everything on the menu is gluten free except the mac and cheese. The food is delicious and the server's are very friendly. The head chef has celiac disease so they are very informed on gluten free. Highly recommend!!!

    Literally everything was gluten free but the Mac & cheese. The Pub Fries were really good with brisket. There are Wednesday pizza specials too.

    I just discovered this place, and I’ve been there 3 times. They understand how to accommodate gluten free needs. Almost every menu item can be made gluten free.

    They have done gluten free right. The menu is normal-seeming, so it's not feeling "specialty" to those who don't require GF, but the fine print makes it clear that everything except the mac & cheese can be prepared GF. Make sure that you specify GF for your order, but you can order pretty much everything. I have been there with a group, alone, with kids- service and quality are always top-notch, regardless of what time of day or day of the week it is. I have had tacos, pizzas, burgers, the half chicken, and one of the dips. Some of them were a little out of my comfort zone of favorite things to order (although let's be real, with Celiac Disease it's more about what you CAN eat at a restaurant), but they were all amazing. The hardest thing about eating here is actually having to CHOOSE. Most places, I stick with my one safe, trusted menu item, but here, I struggle between ordering something I previously enjoyed or something I haven't had yet. This is a good problem to have!

    Food was delicious! Staff was welcoming and friendly. First time in over a year, since being diagnosed celiac, that I felt safe eating a meal out! The head chef is celiac. Big plus was everything was delicious, even by my non-celiac friend and my husband’s opinions! The chef came out to greet us and reassure me that everything on the menu was gluten free(except 1 item) and brought a complimentary appetizer!!! I will definitely make the drive to eat here again!

    Absolutely wonderful! Fried chicken and waffles for days! Everything is gluten free except the Mac and cheese. They haven’t ever fried anything not gluten free in their fryers.

    Can't believe I haven't heard of this restaurant before! So many gluten-free options, including things you almost never find at a restaurant. Dedicated fryer for a variety of fried foods including things like french fries, fried pickles, chicken wings, and hush puppies. Entrees that are tasty even if you're not eating gluten-free, and at least a few desserts, also gluten-free! Hands down the biggest gluten free menu in town and so many tasty options. I can't wait to go back!

    The chef here has celiac. The menu is about 95% gluten free! Everything on it is GF except a couple things with asterisks. I had to ask a few times to be sure. The chef came out to talk to us and said the whole kitchen is GF except for one small area they use to make the few menu items with gluten. Food is wonderful! Tried hush puppies for the first time ever. Next time will try fried pickles. We had a Cuban sandwich on bread and an avocado burger with a great bun.
