Impressive gluten free menu at Ashburn, VA restaurant

Reviewer: Gfmom from

We visited this relatively new restaurant last week. It's right near Cooper's Hawk, another restaurant with a wonderful selection of gluten free options. Baker's Crust, a bit less formal, has a very cool bar and an impressive Gluten Free Menu. We each ordered the 9 oz pour of one of their Italian red wines, and it was, indeed, generous! Very good wine as well! Between the two of us, we ordered a gluten free pizza and a fish special of the day. Both were really good. We split the gluten free chocolate lava cake for dessert (hard to find a gluten free version of this at restaurants -- thank you, Baker's Crust). Delicious! This restaurant makes it easy for gluten free diners...there are starters, including GF bruschetta, numerous salads, artisan sandwiches on gluten free bread, burgers on gluten free buns, GF pizza, and meat and seafood entrees. There are two different gluten free desserts. They do take precautions in the kitchen, and gluten free pizza is baked on its own pan. However, our server made sure to tell us the GF pizza is cooked in the same oven as the other pizzas, so there is "gluten in the environment," in case we had a concern about that. While it's always nice if restaurants have a separate oven for GF pizzas, most restaurants don't. As long as they take precautions to use a clean tray (so the GF crust doesn't lay on the surface of the oven rack or stone) and use a separate pizza cutter, etc., we are comfortable with that. They do make their own homemade gluten free pizza crust here (at least that's what we were told). I definitely recommend a visit.

Good burgers and gluten free buns at restaurant in Ashburn, VA

Reviewer: Gfmom from

We've been going to this restaurant for years. They have all sorts of burgers (and grilled fish and chicken, too). Now they have gluten free buns for the burgers, too. The fries are gluten free as well (and cooked in a dedicated fryer), but I always recommend verifying everything when you order, because procedures and ingredients are always subject to change. You can ask for Joey. He's the owner/manager and is almost always there. They also have a great fixings bar with lettuce, tomato, onions, and other condiments for the burgers and sandwiches. There are entree salads, too, which would probably be gluten free...just verify toppings and salad dressings.

Gluten free burgers and buns in Pittsburgh

Reviewer: Gfmom
Reviewed on Feb 12, 2017

This restaurant, with 8 restaurants in the Pittsburgh area, offers a GF menu. But it's not on their website. You have to ask for it at the restaurant. They have good burgers and GF buns (not served toasted so no cross contamination concern). The fries aren't gluten free, but there are other GF sides. Many of the shakes are gluten free, too. Just talk to a manager if you are gluten free for medical reasons. They seemed quite informed about everything.

Great Mediterranean Bistro with gluten free options in Reston, VA

Reviewer: Gfmom
Reviewed on Jan 02, 2017

This is a great "fast casual" type restaurant that offers salads, wraps, pasta, brick oven pizzas, and traditional Mediterranean appetizers like bruschetta, hummus, tzatziki, and baba ghanoush. However, the best part is that, although the pasta and pizza are not available gluten free, there is a whole gluten free menu ( http://www.cafesano.com/menus/lunch-dinner/gluten-free-menu/ ) that includes kebabs and kebab platters, soups, salads, and appetizers. They also have gluten free wraps. Just let them know if you are gluten free for medical reasons/Celiac so they can take care in preparing your food. A great place to dine. They have a second location in the Dulles Town Center area, too.

Reliable and tasty gluten free fast food in Ashburn, VA

Reviewer: Gfmom
Reviewed on Jan 02, 2017

Chick-fil-A has a few good gluten free options: entree salads (if you order the grilled chicken, not fried chicken on top), grilled chicken nuggets, and even the waffle fries. There are some gluten free sides other than fries, too...like fruit cup, superfood salad, and regular side salad. They have an Allergens chart you can download on their website, which will show you what you can eat. Many of their shakes are gluten free, too (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry). So is their frosted lemonade (delicious....like a lemony shake) and frosted coffee (like a frappucino). But you pretty much have just two choices for a gluten free meal here: an entree salad with chicken or the grilled nuggets (8 or 12 count) with sides. They are very careful about avoiding cross contamination. Their processes make it easy to keep things safe for GF diners. I just wish they had more choices (and offered GF buns), because then you could at least get a grilled chicken sandwich.
