I have been gluten-free since Feb. I live overseas and will be visiting Calfornia for Xmas. I'm from CA originally but I haven't been to the US since going gluten-free. During my trip I will have a couple of nights in a hotel. I am specifically choosing ones that have microwaves and fridges. However, I also would like to enjoy food I can't get where I live. So, do I go for it and try some restuarants like Chipolte, Outback Steakhouse, etc. OR should I play it safe and buy food from the supermarket and only eat what I fix? I realize this is a decision only I can make! However, I just wonder what experiences others have had regarding restaurants. I only have 10 days in the US and I want to enjoy food I can't eat where I live, but I don't want to waste any days being sick!!!!

I guess it might depend on where you live in Calif. There are so many great healthfood restaurants that all make great gluten free meals. Even the whole foods stores have great restaurant hot and cold foods sections plus a great selection of items in the grocery part. hugh gluten-free sections. One a few blocks form LAX too. i live in hawaii so we always have to change planes at LAX so sometimes I"ll plan for a few hours in between flights so I can cab it over to the store and back. have fun looking around. even if your in the countryside there should be some places, or worth the drive to one. good luck

I've felt safe at both Chipotle and Outback, but I feel safest at Tahoe Joe's. Great steak and steak salad! Just don't order mashed potatoes (because they like to put gravy on it). However, the baked potatoes are wonderful! Also, the pizza at BJ's Grill is fantastic, and they also serve gluten-free Redbridge Beer. Many restaurants offer gluten-free menus now in California. Also, you should check out the hotel chains--I read recently that one of them caters to gluten-free patrons.
