We are going to be visiting Tucson, AZ Kartchners Caverns and Tombstone AZ soon. We are looking for ideas for gluten free restaurants in those areas? Maybe some local places? Thanks in advance!!

Eat my at my Aunt's house!  Ha!  Seriously, my aunt and cousin are gluten free.  It's too late to contact them but I know they have a few favorite restaurants.  Here's a link from the Tucson Celiac group containing an interactive map with restaurant locations.

Tucson has Trader Joe's too.  I shop there and at Costco when I'm there twice a year.  Nice to travel with a cooler just in case!  You can always buy a cheap one if you're flying.

Thanks so much! Appreciate the post! We aren't traveling for a while, so if you hear from your Aunt, you might ask her their favorite restaurants! We live in Phoenix, so we will be driving with a cooler. We are staying a hotel with a kitchen to fix simple meals, but when we are traveling, its nice to be able to eat out a few times (vacation for Mom without having to cook!!!). Thanks for the link for the celiac support group.

Feast - a must try.

Tucson Tamale Company - don't leave without stopping there.

For Chinese, Lotus Garden

Buddy's is on the East side and I'm ok with a few of their dishes - I did get "got" there, once. Explain proper procedures to the waiter - mine does push the kitchen staff to be more careful.

BJ's is good for all-around and pizza. Never had an issue there.

Shish Kebab House - I've had great luck there.

I live in Tucson, pm me and let me know what you're looking for.

I ate at a place that advertises gluten-free in Tombstone - and I got into gluten...I'm not terribly sensitive, so I'm assuming it was a healthy dose.

Thanks so much! That is a great list of places to try. The only other place my kiddos would like is Mexican (I see Tamale Co - we love tamales so we will try that) but chips/salsa and other Mexican choices.

 

Thanks again for the list. We will try Feast! I already checked out their menu online. Looks great! And Lotus Garden - we really like Chinese. I like trying local places when we travel since there are the chains that have gluten-free everywhere. Its nice to try something different!

 

Appreciate the list! :)

Gourmet Girls Gluten Free Bakery and Cafe - yummy sandwiches ( yes, a sandwich on homemade bread!), salads, soups, etc. on Oracle Road - always go here when I am in town. Love the Mexican wedding cookies and snickerdoodles -such a treat.

For Mexican, El Charro has good food and a gluten-free menu. We go th the one on Oracle, have never had an issue.

For food shopping, Whole Foods and Sprouts. Frys and Bashas carry Boars Head deli products. Frys has a bigger selection of gluten-free foods.

There is another restaurant on the east side that has gluten-free on the menu - I've never tried it, though, so I don't know how well they execute: http://www.hotrodsoldvail.com/#2556

As far as Mexican goes, the Old Pueblo Grill has Nuevo Mex - I'll be honest, I don't have much luck with finding safe Mexican. Tucson has excellent Mexican joints but most are mom/pops and they don't do gluten-free and there's a stiff communication barrier. I have had ok luck at La Parilla Suiza on Broadway - the rice is not safe, chips aren't safe, and no sauces are safe. I order beans and the grilled dishes - the one with bacon in it??? I take my own chips in my purse, and get my own salsas. Thankfully, the margaritas are safe.

Thanks for the Hotrods info. I'll check it out online.  Thanks for the info on Mexican.  Maybe we will stick with the tamales! We can get Mexican up here in the Valley, so we will venture out to new things!

Yes, forgot GFG! Their sandwiches are good, and a very good creme puff!! They are on the NW side, and that's a big haul if you're based on the east side for your travels (Tomstone/Kartchner).

Be warned, El Charro on Broadway is now closed.

You can get pinto beans, chips (last I heard they weren't safe, though), three awesome salsas, and rice at Tamale Company. Also, a killer breakfast on weekends.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
