They think they understand Celiac, but don't. Their protocol for pizzas is all wrong. They use shared space, the same sauce and toppings as regular pizza. They swore by their technique so we tried it. Thankfully, Nima tested positive for gluten so it wasn't eaten. The chilli tested safe. The restaurant staff was not terribly understanding. We won't be back.

I ate at the Sam Marcos Sammys and was fine. Ate here and got really sick from cross contamination. Sobe careful and stress to them the importance of separation!

The pizza was terrible. It was like eating straight dough. There were a lot of options. The service was great.

Nasty Pizza crust. Reminded me of the first ones on the market 10-12 years ago, grainy and tough.

Lots of GF choices and very clearly marked in menu (and togo menu!) - pizzas are great. The penne pasta and Greek salad were good. They also have huge portions (except the pizza)

If ur looking for a yummy drink - don't get the watermelon or cucumber coolers, they were both not sweet.

Wow, the pizza was delicious. They were knowledgeable about GF and cooked the pizza in a separate part of the kitchen. I got an all meat pizza with daiya vegan cheese. Yum!

Very thin cracker-like crust but the toppings are what you want anyways, right?

Had the chicken ceaser salad and was sick an hour after eating it. Marked gluten free. Asked the right questions but something wasn’t right.

The staff didn’t take me seriously, the waiter just flippantly said that they are good about gf options but didn’t really listen. I wasn’t thrilled with the service and ended up going with a very safe salad instead of anything else.

Not sure what they did to my pizza, but man was I sick. I was so excited because it tasted great...but throwing up(that's what my body does when I injest gluten) twice in a hotel bathroom was not what I had in mind for my vacation. I usually do fine with eating out and can even handle shared fryers.

If dining here, you may have to call first and verify how they handle their GF requests and then verify with the server again upon ordering.

Good gluten free menu. Crust made there, awesome crust. I would get the pizza just because the crust was so good. They have a good five-cheese pizza. It doesn’t have sauce. Many options for salads. Cool atmosphere and nice people.

I am giving this five stars based on the gluten-free food. Our service was about a three star. However the roasted cauliflower and the gluten-free Gorgonzola and pear pizza were amazing so as a gluten-free gal five stars it is.
