I will be going to Vegas in a couple months and wonder if anyone can suggest gluten free restaurants on the strip that will not break the bank.

I'm going in two weeks. Ironically the last time I was there I was with a girlfriend who was celiac (I was yet undiagnosed). It was easy for her if I recall. I'll gladly take the suggestions too and then when i get back I'll post too.

Thanks so much. This will be my first trip since being diagnosed and I'm really anxious about it.

I promise that I'll report back. But my best advice for eating out is to just be very firm, vocal and polite as possible. If you feel like you are not being heard you might consider leaving. Whenever I am happily accommodated in a restaurant I go out of my way to thank the server, the manager and even the chef. I try and consider what a pain it must be for restaurants to have to worry about so many allergies.

As for Vegas I will let you know!

I went to Vegas in November - here are some of the places I ate.

Todd English P.U.B - outside the Aria - had Strongbow Cider. Server was very knowledgeable of gluten-free choices informed me of the carvery station they offer (no bread obviously) and what sauces were ok and not ok. Checked on the soup my wife had (Butternut squash or something like that) which was not gluten-free. I chose a hamburger which she said she would inform the chef of it needing to be gluten-free and added that the kitchen is used to preparing things this way and she even informed me that the fries were no good as they were fried in the same oil as other things.

Mon Ami Gabi @ the Paris Hotel - went for breakfast as gluten-free eggs Benedict were on the menu and they were great. They also had a separate gluten-free menu for other meals but I only went once for the breakfast.

Prime Steakhouse @ Bellagio - very expensive but again they made me feel very comfortable as they knew right off the bat which sauces for the steaks were ok. Went with the chilled seafood tower for appetizer and split it with my wife.

Canaletto @ the Venetian - chose this restaurant as it has gluten-free pasta. They prepared a seafood dish with red sauce over the gluten-free pasta and it was also very good.


Nine Fine Irishman @ NY NY - did not eat here but we did have drinks and they have Red Bridge - we stopped in at happy hour thinking we could get some drinks and appetizers but all of the apps on the happy hour menu were fried and gluten filled. But it was nice to have a couple beers. If you go at happy hour the downstairs bar was crowded and it was a little confusing were to seat on several tables had reserved signs on them. I assume as it was a happy hour situation they only want people sitting at the bar or the tables in the bar area. At first the staff was not very helpful but we finally got someone to tell us there was another bar upstairs.

PF Changs @ Planet Hollywood Casino - your normal gluten-free menu from a PF Changs but again they did have Red Bridge.

Caesars Palace - was listed on the Red Bridge website as being available but I did not see it at any of the bars I looked at. I was just "sightseeing" there so I did not really inquire.

Hi there,
Just to add: there are a handful of Whole Foods stores in Vegas too. We stayed at a hotel with full kitchens just off the strip and also ate out at PF Changs successfully.
Have fun! Be sure to go to Red Rocks for some beautiful nature!

I've had two good experiences at Border Grill. They've got a specific gluten free menu and know what they're doing. Not cheap, but not horribly expensive either.

Also eaten at the Burger Bar in Mandalay Bay - I had to get the burger without the bun, but it was still good. And they've got a dedicated fryer so you can have the french fries.

The P.F. Chang's on the strip (I think it's in Planet Hollywood) was also good.

Whoops - didn't see this question was a few months old. Hope it's helpful if you haven't gone yet!

I just got back from Vegas and was very surprised how easy it was to eat there. I had e-mailed Treasure Island where we stayed about gluten free options at their restaurants and they sent me a complete list of foods from every restaurant there. It was very helpful. We live in a small town and waiters look at you like you're some kind of freak when you bring up "gluten free." There everyone was knowlegeable and very helpful. Never once had a reaction wherever we ate. One I would definitely recommend is Maggiano's in the Fashion Mall. When I asked for a gluten free menu the waiter left and immediately came out with the chef who went over the menu and helped me make choices. He was wonderful and very accommodating in fixing what I wanted. The pasta was wonderful and the prices were very reasonable.
I did have an issue with Denny's at breakfast. I was given a computer sheet loaded with greasy finger prints for a menu. At the top it said it was last updated in 2008. When I asked for an updated one, the waiter left and came back and said nothing had changed. Clearly things have because there were things listed that wern't even available on the menu any more. I opted not to take a chance and only had juice.
Also Gilley's right out side of Treasure Island had a very nice menu and everyone was very helpful. Their pulled pork was wonderful and had "real" mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. Definitely give it a try.

As others have mentioned, I P.F. Chang and Mon Ami Gabi are both very aware and have gluten free menus. I also ate at the Wynn Buffet several times. I realize there are risks of cross contamination, but I felt pretty comfortable using common sense on what was least likely to be cross contaminated. The Wynn overall is very aware of celiac/gluten intolerance and when I mentioned this to them they had a chef come out and walk through the entire buffet with me. One of the chefs also mentioned that the Wynn was making an effort to accommodate gluten intolerance in all of its restaurants. I did not eat in any of the others so I have no first hand knowledge of that, but thought it was interesting and encouraging.
