Southern California Stops for Celiacs

Awareness of Celiac disease is spreading, by Joe, and restaurants are taking full advantage of the added patronage! Some stops that are required for the weary traveller, or simply the local resident, are listed below:
  1. In N Out- Now, I know they have these guys all up and down the coast, but the one in Laguna Niguel is very aware of Celiacs' needs (I go there all the time, and they are more than willing to accomodate)!
  2. Skosh Monahans. The owner's son has autism, and because of his condition, they created a gluten-free, casein free kid-friendly menu. The place is has a very laid back atmosphere and would cater to even the pickiest gluten-free consumers.
  3. Newport Rib Steakhouse. They are very willing to help out Celiacs. Their food is delicious!
  4. Z'Tejas- Tex/Mex lunch and dinner. Good food, good restaurant.

Also, BJ's Pizzeria, a favorite amongst high-schoolers for their low prices, big plates, and the infamous pazookie, is adding a gluten-free menu to their restaurant! They say that is will be coming soon, but how soon I am not sure. I will be checking frequently.

If anyone else has any other suggestions about some out-to-dinner locations that are sympathetic to the needs of Celiacs, do not hesitate to add them in!

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

SALAI THAI RESTAURANT NEXT TO FEDEX SHIPPING STORE SHOPPING CENTER ON CORNER OF EL CAJON BLVD AND COLLEGE IN SAN DIEGO WILL COOK ITEMS WITH YOUR OWN GF SOY SAUCE AND TELL YOU WHICH ITEMS ARE GLUTEN FREE (NO WHEAT SOY, NO OYSTER SAUCE) IF YOU ASK THEM. LITTLE SAIGON RESTAURANT IN OLYMPIA, WA WILL DO THE SAME, TOO, SO WE LEFT OUR OWN GF SOY SAUCE THERE FOR THEM TO USE FOR US.

I echo what was said about In-N-Out. We have 2 near us and they are more than helpful when it comes to preparing our little girl's burger, even taking the care to double wrap it so it can't touch anything else in our box.

Lean and Green in La Jolla offers gluten free substitutes such as brown rice bowls, gluten free tortillas for their wraps and much more.

A few other nationally known restaurants that have great gluten-free menus are Outback Steakhouse (which includes some delicious desserts and grown up cocktails) and PF Changs. I have had great luck at both of these restaurants and have left very happy with my experience.

Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have! As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already.

Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables. As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.

What did you drink and where did you drink it? NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell. If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.

I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?

They are gluten-free. Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it? For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before? Maybe stomach virus?
