They are not celiac friendly. They offer gluten free options and are very friendly and provide great service. I asked about GF, option, which are not marked on my menu, and was told “theres wheat/flour all over this place.” It’s a crap shoot. Chances are you’ll be fine.

The Ahi Tuna salad was great!!! No issues afterwards

I thought the GF crust was great. The server was knowledgeable about cross contamination. They even carry GF beer. It was great to have pizza and beer like a normal person!

They’ve got a 12” gluten-free crust. I asked about the McDowell and the Purple Pig pizza. Attendant checked and said they could be made gluten free. He also marked an allergy flag on our order. Pizza was delicious and (so far) I haven’t gotten sick. It’s noon. I had it for dinner last night.

Was thrilled to find out that I could enjoy the Quad City style pizza my husband loves in honor of his hometown. Gluten free crust is one of the best I have had. Both crust and sauce have a sweetness to them. Felt fine the next day unlike eating at other gluten free pizza places so appears they take precautions in the kitchen to alleviate cross contamination.

Been here many times NO issues. Great gluten free pizza. Egg free as well. I bring my own cheese since I can't have dairy and they're cool with it. Great friendly, knowledgeable staff!!

Just tried to order and they said they’ve been putting egg in their GF pizza crust for at least the past 3 Years. I had been told it was egg free one year ago. Very frustrating

It's hard to find GF pizza so I gotta give them some props for that. That said, it's probably the worst of the GF crusts we've tried in Chicago (Cardboard-y). But at least you can come here with your non GF friends and be fine.

All of their toppings except the fried chicken are gluten free they said. They also said they prepare the gluten free pizza in a separate area. I didn’t get sick but the pizza was bad. Undercooked dough, and while the cheese was melted the pizza came out cold. Not a little cold but like eating it the next day cold. We were in a hurry so I didn’t send it back, but won’t go back

They offer gf pizza but the kitchen is covered in flour and they use the same ovens to cook the pizzas. I got a salad that was pretty good but very disappointing to eat salad while everyone around you is enjoying a pizza. I didn’t get sick from the salad.
