Personally I have some other issues and only found I can eat at a dedicated place called Across the Pond up in Richardson Texas in the DFW area. I used to enjoy eating a few other places but one has shut down and the other changed cooking methods so it is no longer safe for me. >.< it got to the point I started up my own Paleo based catering business and have been selling at vendor stalls in the local farmers market.

I ( and many of us) use the 'find me gluten free' app - you plug in the address of where you want to eat and the app will bring up potential restaurants in the area with reviews from actual people who ate there.  it's for real, I review on it all the time.  that being said, not many restaurants are perfect, choose wisely, ask questions and don't be shy when you're ordering out.  I tell people I am on a medically necessary diet and i'm not just trying to be healthy or lose weight.  I have had pretty good luck once you know what to look out for ;) 

some places, I just look at the menu and order a drink, lolz - one place in NJ was all kinds of fried, breaded, just mostly gluten filled menu.  just gave the menu back to the server and ordered a wine, lolz - no sense in tempting fate!!  good luck!!

I've been fine eating at Qdoba if I ask them to change gloves and use clean utensils. 

I've worked with our local Applebees too. They will clean the grill, change gloves...ect for me. So, haven't had any issues there either. 

We have a couple of pizza places that have dedicated stations for gluten-free pizzas and haven't had an issue there either. 

I've eaten out at these places about twice a month for the last several years without an issue. There's only one item on the menu at each that I can have and only because I've very specific with the restaurant staff on how to prepare the food and they accommodate me.
