They don't know what gluten is.,

I agree with the previous reviewer. I was hoping things had improved, but clearly they did not. We went for a big family graduation party. Luckily we got there early and I could discuss the menu with the manager. I was concerned and disappointed with his lack of knowledge of what gluten is. He told me the that mashed potatoes were not on the Gluten Free menu due to the gluten in the potatoes.
Huh? When I told him potatoes are gluten free, he told me "well, you know it's because of the milk and butter."
Huh? I told him that milk and butter do not have gluten and he said, "well most people who want gluten free don't want that stuff either" oh boy.
Then I asked about the Teriyaki Chicken and mentioned that usually soy sauce has gluten. He says, "well it's not really gluten free". WHAT?? It's on the Gluten Free menu - a completely separate menu!
In the end after much discussion my daughter had a steak with corn. She did not get sick, thankfully. I hope there was no cross contamination, as they assured me it was prepped separate.
Scary place for celiacs.

We dined at Sammy G's specifically for their gluten free menu and I was thrilled when I saw the very extensive gluten free choices. So thrilled that I was suspicious--I had never seen so many choices! Choices like fried chicken, a teriyaki dish, etc. I ordered a chicken dish and my husband ordered the gluten free fried chicken--he's gluten free by choice while I have celiac. His fried chicken looked too good to be true and it was!! I asked the waitress to confirm that is was gluten free and she did. I then asked the ingredients of the coating--was told the owner was checking for us. After a lengthy wait the owner came to the table to tell us "there is wheat used for the breading. Who knew there was a difference between flour and wheat flour?" Are you kidding me??? I was speechless!! Clearly the owner is jumping on the gluten free bandwagon with zero knowledge and for all the wrong reasons!!!!
