|I have eaten at Dad's Kitchen four times now; and, regrettably, I have decided to give them a poor review.
The two times we were there when the owner was there, we had a good experience. He seems very interested in taking care of his customers, and is quite sensitive to gluten issues.
However, the other two times when he was not there, our experience was that the servers aren't in the least bit patient or willing to keep their customers safe.
They do not have a gluten free menu, but the owner will tell you that they can accommodate you. However, accommodation does require that your server look out for your best interests.
On our last visit, I ordered a gluten free salad. It looked beautiful and tasted wonderful. I was about a quarter of the way through the salad, when suddenly I realized I was crunching on something I didn't expect. Upon further inspection, I realized there was a layer of croutons buried deep within the salad that was not visible when it was first served to me. The croutons were not gluten free.
When I told the server about it, he seemed annoyed that I was complaining, didn't apologize, and didn't offer to take the price of the salad off our tab.
Although the food tastes good, it is just not worth the risk to go there. There are plenty of other options in the Sacramento area.
