Hubby finally going gluten-free :lol: !!!

He travels to downtown Houston, TX often and we need some help w/places to eat.

This is what I have thus far:

www.chickfila.com, Taco Cabana, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabbas, PF Chang's, Pei Wei, Flemings Steakhouse, McDonalds, Wendy's, First Watch, Chipotle, Jack in the Box, Denny's will bring out a list of stuff and go over it with you so you know just what is in every thing.

Thank you very much!

Actually downtown Houston can cover a lot of ground. Is he driving downtown or walking? What area of downtown? (don't need an address but cross streets would be nice i.e. Louisiana and Walker)

These may help but as always, make sure they know what issues you are dealing with. If it's a "sit down" restaurant, call ahead and talk to the chef.

  • Stephanie Leigh's chicken salad cup is gluten-free - tell them not to put crackers in the bag. Also, if you call ahead, they can sell Boarshead turkey or ham by the 1/4 or 1/2 pound. (good with a fruit salad)
  • Massa's Seafood is a very nice restaurant and the chef is very cooperative. Call ahead to make sure they know what to expect.
  • Birra Porretti's was very good about gluten-free issues. I called ahead and they prepared a grilled chicken breast, fresh green beans and garlic mashed potatoes that was very good.
  • The Lancaster Hotel has a good restaurant that was very helpful, call ahead of time.
  • The Aquarium was NOT one of the cooperative ones.

Also, our local support group leader said if people from out of town call or email her asking for a few restaurant recommendations, she can provide that (free). Note that there is a restaurant guide they have compiled that is for sale but a few recommendations are free. Feel free to send me a message if you need more info.
