Gluten-free In Arizona

Recommended Posts

The Old Spaghetti Company downtown Phoenix has gluten-free pasta. Their mushroom sauce and mizithra sauces are gluten-free. Unsure of their other sauces.

Pizza Picazzos in Scottsdale is gluten-free friendly. Great menu. The fresh pizzas are better than the lunch special. The lunch special has a salad of choice and the flavor of the week pizza. The slice may not have been fresh that day or I came too late for a fresh out of the oven piece.

Red Robin (Mayo Blvd Scottsdale and Happy Valley and I-17) managers have been very helpful. They wrap the burgers in lettuce "protein style". Their french fries are bottomless and have a dedicated fryer. Unsure about their seasonings.

Chilis - (Paradise Valley Mall) brought out the cook's Gluten-Free Menu. Also, contacted their corporate office was advised to check the following website monthly as things can change :www.brinker.com/gr/allergens/chilis%20allergen.pdf

On The Border (Desert Ridge) Same company as Chilis and given this website: www.brinker.com/gr/allergens/otb%20allergen.pdf

Macaroni Grill (Desert Ridge) Same company as above and given this website: www.brinker.com/gr/allergens/mac%20allergen.pdf

TGIFridays - Called their corporate office in TX. They do not have a Gluten-free menu but are very interested. They have received numerous calls and are looking into it.

Applebees - Called their corporate office and they do not publish a gluten-free menu but the gentleman on the phone was willing to give me the information about their menu items if I gave him the menu item I was interested in. The potato skins are supposedly gluten-free (baked) I had them with cheese and bacon bits and omitted the sour cream. I'm not sure of the bacon bits as I felt glutenized after eating this appetizer.

Outback Steakhouse (Mayo and Scottsdale Rd). They have been awesome! The Alice Springs Chicken with baked potato is great.

Rancho Manana (Tonto Bar & Grill) Cave Creek, AZ. Not a lot of choices of gluten-free, but the wait staff has been trained and are knowledgeable. If they don't know, they will ask the chef.

Abuelos (Scottsdale Rd and Mayo Blvd) have a gluten-free menu too! Haven't eaten there yet.

Anxious to read other postings for national chain restaurants.

Hope this info will help you.

my fave is Picazzo's pizza in Tempe. I was never a pizza lover until I could not have it. So my husband teased me when I wanted to go to picazzo's pizza. You can choose white sauce on your gluten-free pizza - how awesome is that. The reason I never liked pizza was the red sauce. So, now I want to go there all the time. I order the shrimp and white sauce pizza (alfredo?). Beats me what it is called. But it is soooooo good.
