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.

      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Thank you everyone. I have scheduled a second opinion. He last biopsie came back and he is lactose intolerant.     
    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
