    Waitress was very knowledgeable in gluten allergies. She explained to me that a special pink ticket needs to be created for a gluten allergy and it requires 2 managers to sign off on. Definitely reassuring!

    LOVE this place. So many gluten free options. They label everything when it comes out with an allergy pick. Would highly recommend.

    The Lettuce Entertain You restaurants are always good with gluten free options. It was nice to have all the sandwich options with gluten free bread. The cookies were good too!

    Dedicated fryer, need I say more? Brunch here, dine here, my sister and I have both enjoyed multiple meals here without reaction.

    Be very careful when ordering at this restaurant and make sure you specifically tell them that you have a food allergy because apparently ordering off the gluten free menu isn't enough to let them know not to bring you gluten free food. I ordered from the GF menu even showed the waiter what I wanted from the menu and my food didn't come GF and had a bad reaction. I have ordered from other restaurants from GF menus and not had any issues but here I did so please be very careful!

    Their fish tacos are the best thing I've ever eaten in my entire life no joke I would eat those tacos every second of every day for eternity. Their sauces and slaws are amazing, and my mom takes me there a lot because I love them so much. They have a very large gluten free menu, for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, and it includes all kinds of dishes. They also have two gluten free cookies which rival the tacos in their culinary exquisiteness. They are kept in the same case as the normal cookies, however, so ask that they bring you one from the back to ensure no cross contamination. A wonderful restaurant to visit 10/10 would recommend!!!!!

    Like most Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, they had a very nice GF menu. They fill out an allergen form for the chef.
