Wow-I completely forgot OB People's had a little eating area! Thanks for the information. I am lacto/ovo vegetarian, who is über sensitive to gluten, so I have an extra hard time eating out. I have had luck with the Whole Foods little eating area . There is a Jimbos in Escondido with an eating area and they usually have gluten-free baked goods.
I tried to contact the SD support group to do the eating out thing and no one would email or call me back.
FYI: Dr. Gregory Harmon is a good GI to go to. He works at the Adult Celiac Center in Torrey Pines with Dr. Martin F. Kagnoff aka major head honcho in celiac research http://celiaccenter.ucsd.edu/index.html
Read the ingredients at Trader Joes carefully because I have found gluten in the ingredients even though it was on the gluten free list they publish-also I received a false okay from their customer service line but that was a couple of years ago-I haven't bothered to go back since.
I've eaten at PF Changs (UTC & Mission Valley) and gotten sick every time in San Diego. I ate at one in Las Vegas and did not have any problems. I was told by a Celiac that worked at Outback Steakhouse that she wouldn’t eat there. So far, I have had good results with Cilantro Live (Chula Vista & Carlsbad), Ranchos (OB), and SipZ Fusion Cafe (Clairemont & Poway).
