Good gluten free options in Universals Islands of Adventure Nov 09, 2018
reviewer: Lovetodinegf

It was such a pleasant surprise to find that the sit down restaurants at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure had gluten free items (and vegetarian, too) marked on their menus. We had wanted to dine at Mythos restaurant, in Islands of Adventure, on this particular day, but there was too long of a wait. So we ended up at Confisco Grille nearby. They had a good number of items to choose from on their menu ( https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/confisco-grille/all-day-menu.html ). Gluten free choices you'll have include wings or hummus as an appetizer, three entree salads, pad thai (for some reason not marked GF on their menu online but was marked GF on the menu we received in the restaurant), and burgers and sandwiches (served on gluten free buns). Their fries are even gluten free, fried in a dedicated fryer. How nice for our son to have an amazing bacon cheeseburger piled high with trimmings and a side of fries that were safe. He really enjoyed his meal. I had the Pad Thai, which was positioned as a specialty of the house, but I wasn't terribly impressed. It wasn't bad, but it just lacked a kick. There wasn't any scrambled egg in it (or lime)...just rice noodles, chicken, and shrimp that all in all wasn't very flavorful. It was topped with bean sprouts but not many peanuts. I had to ask for more. There was a bit of chili sauce drizzled around the edge of the plate, but it really needed more. I'd recommend this place primarily for their burgers and sandwiches.

Wonderful meal (and safely gluten free) in Orlando, Florida Nov 09, 2018
reviewer: Lovetodinegf

We had a delicious dinner at this restaurant while in town to visit the Universal Studios theme parks. On their menu, they have items noted with an asterisk that are -- or can be prepared -- gluten free ( https://delmonicositaliansteakhouse.com/menu-2/ ). They have gluten free pasta, so you will even see some of those menu choices noted with an asterisk. Our server told us she had many dietary allergies and intolerances herself and that the kitchen staff is very careful about preparing gluten free orders. Yes, they do cook their gluten free pasta in a separate pot, etc. It was nice for our son to be able to order a filet mignon with a side of pasta, the way it comes (and just substituting GF pasta). Gluten Free choices on the menu include appetizers, all the salads, steaks, chicken or veal marsala, frutta di mare pasta with seafood, shrimp scampi, and side dish choices. This is a nice upscale restaurant with a warm atmosphere. I'd recommend for anyone, gluten free or not.

Always a great meal at this restaurant with gluten free pizza and more! Oct 25, 2018
reviewer: Lovetodinegf

We love BJ's and have been to a lot of their different locations. This one at the Virginia Gateway shopping center opened a few years ago. On a recent visit, we enjoyed their gluten free pizza, some good salads, and our favorite dessert: the gluten free Pizookie. This is their signature warm, deep dish chocolate chip cookie served in a skillet -- and they make a gluten free version. You can get it in the original size (perfect for sharing) or a smaller individual size. This restaurant has some nice gluten free offerings all-around and prepares GF orders carefully. Highly recommend any of their locations.

Gluten free Mexican at Fisherman's Wharf in SF Apr 04, 2018
reviewer: Lovetodinegf

Everything is gluten free at Chipotle, except for the flour tortillas used to make burritos. You can get the soft tacos (on corn tortillas), hard corn tacos, a bowl, or a salad -- and fill it with many different choices of meat, beans, rice, and toppings. I like to request fresh meat, rice and other toppings from the back, if possible, since the spoons used to dish up the meat and other fillings do touch the flour tortillas sometimes as the workers are making burritos. But I don't know that this is a huge cross contamination risk. I just like to be extra careful. Many people who are Celiac eat at Chipotle all the time without an issue.

Burger chain with gluten free burgers Apr 04, 2018
reviewer: Lovetodinegf

The burgers and fries at this California burger chain, with locations virtually everywhere in the state and other western states, are gluten free. However, they don't currently offer gluten free buns. When we ordered a "double" (two patties), we told the manager our son was gluten free. The manager said he'd make sure the patties were grilled on a clean area of the grill (maybe they grill their buns on the grill, too?). They were very helpful and friendly taking care of our order. I just wish they'd offer GF buns.
