I am traveling from Texas to Chesapeake, VA. This may be a long shot, but can anyone give me any direction/ideas for a good place to shop/restaurants to go to?

Thank you!

Hey Karen,

I live out here. And the grocery store list on that site is good, but those restaurants...most of them won't have a clue what you are talking about if you walk in and ask for a Gluten Free menu. Be prepared to take one in with you that you have printed off the web. I recommend just doing the ones we all know. There are several Outbacks, a PF Changs, Cheeseburger in Paradise, and I have had good luck with Unos in Norfolk...oh, and Nawab.

If you can grocery shop as far as Williamsburg, Ukrops is the best. They have potato salad, cucumber salads, tuna salads in their deli area that are all clearly marked gluten free. Otherwise most (not all) Farm Fresh and Kroger stores have a good section of gluten-free foods. And by the way, Farm Fresh carries Redbridge in their cold beer section.
