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.

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
