#646373 Restaurants -- SLC Area

Posted by Darissa on 14 October 2010 - 06:49 PM

There is a Wingers in West Valley (& several here in Idaho), i've heard they have a gluten-free menu, but haven't gone there since going gluten-free. (I haven't really eaten out since going gluten-free...it's not something my DH & I are able to do often).

Rowena, I've also heard there's a gluten-free store in the Salt Lake area called 'against the grain'. I think I remember hearing that it's in the T- ville/ Sandy area.

i grew up in West Valley, now live in Idaho, but have friends & family still there, so am able to go visit once in a great while...


The store is Against The Grain in Taylorsville. We always shop there when in town. I often pack a suitcase full of food from that store to take back to Arizona with us because I really like some of their brands of flour mixtures they have! Its a great store. Everything is gluten free in the store. Easy to get to off the I 215 and 5400 south. THey are not open like regular grocery store hours, so check their website before you visit for their hours. THey are very helpful in the store. I got some good recipes there from the owners one time.

I also forgot about Five Guys Burgers and Fries! Everything the serve except the buns are gluten free! Just ask them to prepare yours seperatley and cook fresh fries to avoid CC. We have them in Arizona, and they are great for gluten free eating!
Here is the website

THey have them in the west valley area and midvale area. Check out the location from the website.

#646308 Restaurants -- SLC Area

Posted by Darissa on 14 October 2010 - 01:47 PM

We have eaten several times at the PFChangs in Downtown SLC with no problems. My daugther and I are both very sensitive to the CC, and we have never gotten sick. This is our favorite place to eat out when in SLC.

We have eaten at the ChickFilA in Sandy (off the freeway behind the Hilton Garden Hotel, can't remember the street) a few times, we always ask to talk to the manager there when we do eat there, and have never had a problem. We just ask them to be very diligent in the preperation due to CC, and cook new fries, and change their gloves, and it has gone okay.

We have eaten at the Outback in Sandy with Mixed reviews. We have gotten sick about half of the time we have eaten there due to CC. We find if we go at 4 PM when the resturant opens (they are not open for lunch) we do better. It is less crowded, and we are the first customers of the day, and they seem to take better care.

Good luck!

You might call ahead of time and check the hours of Against The Grain because they are not open like regular grocery stores. It is in a strip mall, in the corner, but easy to find. There is a lot to do in SLC, and the canyons and mountains are beautiful, so hope you enjoy your stay. Good luck!

Your in luck for buying gluten free food in Taylorsville. There is a completly gluten free grocery store in Taylorsville:
Against The Grain
2292 West 5400 South
Taylorsville, Utah 84118

Phone: (801) 955-4418
We shop there when we are in town.

We travel to SLC about 2 or 3 times a year, and here are some places we eat at while we are there. Of course you have your standard places Like ChickFilA (there was one realy close to our hotel and we ate there several times) and Outback and PFChangs. There is also a pizza place we like Pier 49 Pizza;

Here are the sites for the resturants;

Outback - The one we visit is in Sandy, but thats not too far from Taylorsville

I haven't eaten at the ZTejas in SLC, but the ones in Phoneix are good, but limited menu.

Great place for Hamburgers and French Fries and there is one close to Taylorsville

The PFChangs we visit frequently when in SLC. It is downtown, and they always do a great job of having our meals completly gluten-free...

Also, if you are down in the Provo/Orem area, there is a good BBQ place we like..
Wallaby's Smokehouse

Hope you have a great trip. I know traveling can be daunting when trying to find gluten-free places to eat...and you want to feel good on your trip! We bought the Udi's bread at Against the Grain and kept it in our fridge at the motel and had sandwhiches alot. Also, the people at that store might be able to give you a list of the resturants in the area that have gluten free menus. When we visited last time, they gave us a list.

Have fun!

#631745 Walmart Great Value Hash Browns

Posted by Darissa on 14 August 2010 - 05:11 PM

We stay away from the great value brand (walmart) frozen potatoes...but we use Ore Ida frozen potatoes all the time..the hasbrowns, tatortots, french fries. They state gluten free right on the package under the ingredients. Sometimes you have to look for the words "gluten free" most of the time they are realy close to the bottom of the package. We eat them with no problems!

#622020 gluten-free Pasta For Cold Pasta Salads?

Posted by Darissa on 06 July 2010 - 10:44 AM

We love love love Mrs. Leepers corn pasta! We buy the rotini at Walmart of all places! We can also get it at our local Whole Foods. It holds up great, and taste just like the old gluten filled pastas!! I serve it to family/friends when they come over, and they have no idea it is made from corn and gluten free! It makes great cold pastas. Give it a try!

#609411 I Can't Commit To Gluten Free Without Some Sweets!

Posted by Darissa on 07 May 2010 - 10:26 AM

3 minute microwave mircacle cake! My favorite when I'm craving something sweet and cake like. It really only takes 5 minutes from start to finish! Ya!

Heres the recipe: And it is really this simple!

3 packets swiss miss hot chocolate (swiss miss is gluten-free, not all brands of hot chocolate are tho so be careful! We love swiss miss)
4 TBSP Pamelas pancake and baking mix (a staple at my house..makes great gluten free baked products) Or you could use your favorite gluten-free flour blend
1 egg
2 TBSP oil
4 TBSP water

Spray a small glass microwaveable bowl with Pam ( I use a 1 qt bowl, not a cereal bowl because it is not big enough)
Mix all ingredients in bowl.
Microwave on High for 3 minutes!

Thats eat! You can eat it right out of the bowl!! Mosit and fluffy chocolate desert!
I top mine with whip cream, or powder sugar, or frosting or ice cream or you can eat it just as it is!

So simple and it cures a craving for a baked gluten-free sweet treat! Its a life saver at my house, especially when my young daughter has a bday party to go to or for a school or church treat and needs a piece of gluten-free cake to take with her.

Good luck!
