    Very good food, I wasn't sick from here. Like others, I think this is certainly one of those places you have to be extra vigilant at. I don't really care for their gluten free bread but the rest of the food that I have eaten there has made up for it. The woman I ordered my food from didn't seem to understand or care about my ordering from the gluten free menu. It always makes me a little leery when people seem under-educated. Nonetheless, they have remarkably good food.

    I wish I could rate Tallys higher. They have a dedicated fryer AND GF breading station. Lots of GF options. But, they can be sloppy. They served me non-GF pasta and neither the kitchen or server caught it. Fortunately it looked too good for GF. They fixed it, but the replacement GF pasta was way undercooked. Double check everything if you aren't sure. I will go back, but cautiously! The food is good.

    The food is amazing with good options and things I can't find gluten free anywhere else. They have their own fryer for gluten free food as well. I have yet to experience good service in the two times that I have gone.

    Extensive gf menu and knowledgeable staff. Best gf bun I've ever had on my sandwich.

    I love this place! Sat on the rooftop, ordered GF frenchtoast it was awesome. The breakfast menu doesn't indicate what's GF, but they will attempt to make almost anything. GF dedicated fryer, they know how to avoid cross contamination. My husband isn't GF and he loved his food too. Not many places where I can eat that he actually likes. It's our new favorite place! Oh by the way, wait staff is awesome too!

    Just had lunch here with my fiancee and her sister, both of whom have gluten intolerance issues. The menu options were outstanding, and we even got to speak with the chef, who told us of his passion for gluten free cooking and options because of his wife's dietary needs. We ordered gluten free onion rings to share...very good! My fiancee had gluten free macncheese with peas and prosciutto, and her sister had a burger on a gluten free bun. Both entrees were hits. The only wish that we had was that the service would catch up to the food...the attention to detail put into the menu was lacking on the part of our waiter, who ease nonetheless still friendly and pleasant, if not super great at doing the little yet important things...filling water, having napkins and silverware ready, etc.
