GF or no GF, the turning point earns 1 star in my book. Been there twice, service was terrible both times. An hour for an omelette to come out is not acceptable. Not too knowledgeable about GF, they didn't have a GF menu, but the waitress did say that they can sub out toast for tortilla chips. The waitress didn't know if the tortilla chips were made in the same fryer though. Needless to say, I ended up eating cold eggs and left the tortilla chips alone.
This restaurant does have a gluten-free menu, but it does include a warning that cross contamination may happen. Based on Celiac reviews at other Turning Point locations, I went ahead and gave a skillet a try. Big mistake. Definitely not a gluten-free meal.
Who’s ready for a good laugh? :slowly raises my own hand: I walk in and asked for a gluten free menu and was told “we don’t have one because we’re updating it”. Which would have been believable if I then didn’t hear the kitchen people say “no we lost it”. So, since I trusted the people who ate here and wrote a review on this place... I decided to proceed on regardless of life telling me to run while I had the chance. Upon sitting down, we were met by our waitress. We placed our order. Then proceeded to wait close to 40 minutes for our food. I was there with two other people and we all ordered simple plates so... I’m pretty sure they were harvesting the potatoes out back with how long it took to get our food. Side note: it is currently a Monday and at 1:30 pm so the place was slower paced and there were many open tables. After I questioned eating my place setting because I was so hungry, the food came and within the first minute I found quinoa in my skillet. Which made no sense because I literally got the basic skillet with fruit : eggs (with cheese added on top),potatoes, and a micro/small cup of fruit. Interesting. Then upon me finishing up the last few bites... what did I find?! Bread in the cheese that was in my eggs. :slow blinks: Yeap! So, let’s flash forward to now. What am I doing currently, you may ask? I’m enjoying my stomach cramps, nausea, and profusely pooping. So, the joke here was the fact that the turning point ended up actually becoming the turning point to my day. It was great until I went there and that’s were it turned shitty. Figuratively and literally.
Waitress we had was well educated. Even went as far as making sure I got fresh potatoes instead of those that had been under the heat lamp. I was a little disappointed that the sweet potatoes have gluten in the spice mix. The Cali Flatbread is the way to go!! Crispy, filling but healthy
“Gluten sensitive” menu, but so far have been there over 5 times without issue. I mostly stick with breakfast items Skillets are really good and less risk of cross contamination. Omelets are good too. Usually they give me extra fruit to replace the toast. Some items you can sub tortilla chips.
Pretty good. I used to love this place before I was celiac but now my options are very limited. They don't have any gf bread or wraps. The only non-dairy milk they have is soy, which is a no no for me. And unfortunately for me, they don't have any goat cheese or other non-cow's milk cheese.
No gluten free options besides the obvious eggs etc. all pancakes waffles etc are regular gluten. Not sure why restaurant is on this GF app. The huevos rancheros was good although mostly consisted of home fried potatoes. The coffee was just ok. They seem feature coffee in all its forms on their menu so I expected the coffee to be good, but it was just ok. Nice atmosphere. Slow service.
