I felt very safe ordering and eating gluten free there, but the menu was a little lacking. Nothing against them, it's just that they have a smaller menu. Our waitress, Jenny, was very knowledgeable of Celiac and gluten free and was very friendly. They had love music that night which was pleasant and not too overbearing in volume like we feared. Nice "sea side" atmosphere.
Got glutened here. Ask for gluten free options and they hand wrote a list of what I could order. I should have known better. Next time I won’t take a leap of faith.
While, they don't have a gluten free menu, my server was very knowledgeable about what options were gluten free and did point out that a couple of the gluten free items were cooked in a shared fryer and therefore would be cross contaminated. I got the shrimp and grits which were excellent and crab dip with celery on the side rather than the tortilla chips.
Rita's is not Gliten Free and Theo staff is clueless. If you have celiac avoid this restaurant. To poster below, nacho chips are not Gliten free.. Fried with all the other breaded foods.
Excellent! Not advertised as GF but menu is all fresh made and can be tweaked to be made gluten free. My wife had Blackedlned Tuna Nacho's with caramelized onion and bell pepper, black beans, topped with watermelon jalapeño pico! AMAZING!
My son got a kids hot dog with chips (no bun) and loved that it came on a frisbee. We also enjoyed the chicken nachos with watermelon relish. The atmosphere was relaxed and kid friendly.
I'm not sure why it says there is a dedicated fryer because there isn't and hasn't ever been, according to the manager. The server didn't know what gluten free was and after going back to check to see if they could accommodate, she came back and I sad I could have anything without bread. Didn't instill much confidence. I had a hamburger without the bun and seemed okay but now I'm having problems several hours later. This restaurant should be removed from the list.
I would not recommend this restaurant for gluten free, there is no dedicated fryer or gluten free menu. I had a bunless burger and side salad and have been sick since.
Came here on the recommendation of the other reviewer, the server neither knew or cared to know what items were GF. She said the fries and burger "should be okay." Enough for me to stay away from everything but the fries which were in a dedicated fryer. However, they didn't set right so I feel like the potatoes might have some sort of hidden wheat starch or something. Anyway, I wouldn't go back.
Dedicated fryer for both fries & tortilla chips ! Many GF options. Knowledgable server. Just ask!
