Printed gluten free menu that’s pretty extensive. Occasionally they mess up and include a breadstick but quickly remake the food if this happens. Generally don’t get sick.

I have a dairy allergy too, so I ordered the Tuscan Penne. It was delicious! They were very careful about making it safe for me. The only reason I’m giving this four stars is because the server warned me that the pizzas and flatbread are right by other glutenized items in the oven, so there’s plenty of risk for cross-contamination. She said the pasta is about the safest option because it’s prepared in its own area and handled only by one person. But they were very careful and accommodating. Great place!

So their GF pizza is super good. But I do feel sick afterwards almost every time. I have not tried their pasta yet. So maybe that’ll be better. I wouldn’t go here if you’re celiac. On a lighter note. Their flourless chocolate cake is like the best chocolate fudge cake thing I have ever had!! And will go back just for that if anything else!

I really liked there gluten free foods. I’m celiac and I am pretty sensitive and I didn’t get sick. I have gone there multiple time and they have always been very friendly about my condition, and have great service. I would say if you are looking for some gluten free pizza I would request Mackenzie River. The only thing is that they only have one dive pizza crust which is a 16 inch size crust.

The staff is amazingly aware of GF issues that may pop up. They are so friendly, knowledgeable, & conscientious to the needs of the gluten-free. Plus they just rock! Even when they are slammed busy they still pay attention to those of us that require a little more attention.

This place is incredible for celiac/gluten allergy individuals! The staff is very knowledgable about gluten free options and the bbq sauce they use is also gluten free! They have a separate gluten free menu. I got the rancher and added pineapple and it was absolutely one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. The crust was absolutely amazing. It tasted so good the first day and still good the next day cold. They also have delicious huckleberry lemonade. The price is extremely reasonable, the customer service is fantastic and very warm friendly, pleasant and quick. I would highly recommend stopping here and was so glad I did thanks to the gluten free finder app!

I’m here often and haven’t had any issues. If I’m unsure about the sever, I’ll grab the manager and they’ve always taken care of me. I’ve even DoorDashed a few times. The buffalo chicken pizza is fire. Big fan. :)

Omg amazing food amazing service....We had Shayna she was beyond sweet. I wanted a drink and she went and checked all ingredients to see in the end I couldn’t but I appreciated that she was keeping me from getting sick. Me and my daughter shared a gluten pizza and it was amazing and definitely enough almost too much for two people. We were even able to half it so we could each have what we wanted. Their gluten free house salad with pears was amazing as well. I would definitely go back and I would totally recommend. Wish we had one in Canada. Whole menu of gluten free options

Ate at this restaurant several times over the course of a month, each time eating a different menu selection. All menu items were consistently good and not contaminated. I highly recommend these restaurants.

There was a separate gluten free menu which was nice. The food was good not great. Everyone who was not gluten free enjoyed their meals. The gluten free pizza had nice flavor but was undercooked (which is a good sign, it means that it was cooked on something and not straight on a grill). The service was very slow but friendly, so it ended up being a good thing that we ordered an appetizer (the artichoke dip was good).

Was happy to have found this chain on vacation. Had success at Sioux Falls location so stopped here for lunch on the way through town. The flatbread (on Gfree pizza crust) was amazing.

Ate here one the way through town a week ago. The pizza was fantastic and I felt very safe. The flourless Choc cake was delicious.

Staff informed me that pizza is baked in same conveyor but on separate, dedicated aluminum pans with parchment paper underneath, and cut with a separate, dedicated pizza cutter. They also offered to change gloves. Pizza was very good, and gluten free crust was a little chewy but tasty. Overall I would feel safe eating here if I inform the staff.

My kids have celiac and they really enjoyed it. One had the Apple Chicken Flatbread and the other two had pizza. The server and cooks knew about celiac which gave us more confidence. Kids said it was fantastic, and the one that ate the flatbread is normally a very picky eater. They finished with the gluten free chocolate cake. Highly recommend.

Great pizza, salads, pasta, and bar! Staff is knowledgeable and I have had the kitchen manager come speak to me a few times. They have a gluten free menu that even includes a dessert!

Gluten free and vegan cheese pizza options. That’s a win for my family. Otherwise menu was passable. No gluten free breads or buns for sandwiches.

The food is good (according to my husband) but the GF pizza is not safe for Celiacs. So then you're left with steaks or salads with modifications.

Very extensive gluten free menu. Called before we came in to check if they use the same pans and they use separate pans! Great news! Staff was knowledgeable and atmosphere was so chill. Our waitress Jen was so welcoming and if we are ever driving through again we will definitely be back!

I called ahead of time with concerns of cross contamination. Lady on phone explained all of their procedures and willingness to do anything to help me feel safe. When we arrived we requested to be seated in her area. She went and talked to kitchen staff and the manager on duty prepared my meal. They went to great lengths to make sure it was safe. It was super yummy food, too. Definitely recommend this location.

What a fun pizza place! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They do have a separate gluten free menu and it had some great options. We ordered the chili, the rancher and the flat head. The chili was excellent it had great hearty flavor and generous portion size. The pizza were cooked perfect and the gluten free crust was doughy and the crust crispy! Overall I would recommend this for a great pizza night especially if your celiac!

I always feel a little yucky after eating pizza here so I've been getting salad with no dressing instead and that seemed to help.

Separate GF menu, and knowledgeable staff. Took measures to prevent cross contamination. I had a cheese pizza, which was extra satisfying because it was the first real pizza I was able to have after my diagnosis. I'm also allergic to eggs and corn, and their GF crust has no eggs or corn!

the GF menu has a disclaimer about not being safe for celiacs and having a shared kitchen space. They forgot to make my hummus plate GF and replayed it, then I found surprise tortillas in my Cobb salad (not a normal ingredient). Was sick by the time we left. They have lots of GF options but it’s not for celiacs.

This restaurant was good with gluten free, and had great gf pizza that satisfied all my taste buds. The chewy and soft crust was unbelievable! They have a separate gluten free menu with a wide variety of of options. However, they do mention that they take many precautions but they can’t promise it will be completely free of gluten although our daughter has severe celiac and she didn’t get sick. Great service and food quality. I definitely recommend this restaurant. 👍

They did have gluten free pasta and pizza but it’s not celiac friendly. Our waitress was super kind and explained that it was all run on the same line and the ingredients are not separate. My husband had to leave and take my daughter elsewhere while I dined with our other kids.
