I eat there all the time. I order a Budahs feast with white wine sauce and add in tofu. Make sure you repeat that you want white sauce, no soy sauce.

You can order anything on their menu, just make it with white wine sauce and you are good to go. I also eat their won ton soup with no won tons in it.

Very good!

I don't think so. The Tofu and all of the meat have a light coating of breading on them. That surprised me the first time I got tofu. And often white wine sauce uses white flour as a thickener. Either that or corn starch.

The coating on everything including the tofu is cornstarch! I eat at Stix often. There are four different locations I frequent in Orange County CA. and never have been ill.

Do your homework people. Ask questions, write letters and don't frighten people on this board with these false reports. Ask for the white sauce only and cleaned wok to start and you should have NO problems.

I no longer live in SoCal, so haven't been to a Pick up Stix in ages. They used to have a gluten-free menu online, which I can no longer find. It basically stated, anything with the garlic sauce, with a clean wok. Obviously things like spring rolls were not ok. I contacted them on thier web site to ask where the gluten-free info went to.

I tried one here in Long Beach, CA about two months ago. In store they actually did have an allergan menu - although I see nothing online. Virtually every item listed wheat as an ingredient - other than the pad thai rice noodle bowl and plain old rice. For the pad thai bowls the shrimp is sauteed plain and the chicken is fried but uses a corn starch coating. The store owner sadly said that they don't really have much for people with gluten intolerance and he was not eager to have me eat there. I did end up ordering the pad thai shrimp bowl which was quite good and hearty, but I can't recommend Pick Up Stix to any celiacs or gluten intolerants. Better off finding a Pei wei ...

I just went there today and asked to look at the allergen info. As sbj said, the Pad Thai and plain rice are the only 2 options we have at Pick up Stix.

I have been gluten free for 10 years and have eaten successfully at the Pick Up Stix. I've not had the opportunity to go alot because I just move here. The manager at the Westlake Village, CA one has been great! He told me to tell him how to prepare it, and he would do it. I did not know about the white wine sauce and am excited to go back. Here's what I have successfully eaten:

The Pad Thai with shrimp, and I have had it with the chicken. You can have the sweet sauce it comes in.

The plain brown rice (no soy sauce, no sauce of any sort) stir fried with chicken and veggies is really good.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
