Pappadeaux's I35 In Austin, Texas

Recommended Posts

I went to Pappadeaux's on I35 in Austin tonight for dinner with my son & grandchildren. What a wonderful meal. The manager's 3 year old son has celiac. He is also allergic to dairy, soy, corn & a couple other things! She is 1/2 Italian & informed me that 30% of the Italians have a gluten problem. (I think 30% of Americans also have a gluten problem)

The manager was so great & checked with the chef to make my meal perfect.

The chef even cooked me an appetizer of the crab claws in butter only - no flour sauce - gosh they were the largest crab claws I have ever seen. I had the Salmon cooked on a plank & steamed broccoli & a side of red beans & rice ( that beans & rice part was a cheat on my Paleo diet, but I did not eat many of them, I shared with the grandkids...)

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that needs to eat gluten-free as they are very familiar with the gluten free diet, the waiter knew right away to get the manager...

Well I have found a lot of Austin places very willing to accomodate a gluten-free diet.

I happened to be in Austin this past weekend, and my relatives asked to meet me at the Papadeaux at I35 and 290. I knew it must be fairly gluten-free friendly, because one of my aunts that was meeting me there has been gluten-free for many years and won't go anywhere that does not have a decent menu for her. I still googled info on the restaurant, mainly to see what their menu was before I got there. I saw this post in the search results and was then extremely confident about going there. (so thank you for this!) :) we had a very similar experience to your's. The waiter told us that we could order any of the fried food and just ask that it be grilled. I ordered the grilled tilapia w/ lemon and herb olive oil, and with zuccini (some of the best food i've had in a long time!!). Then he said he was going to send the manager by our table (even though we had not asked for her), and sure enough she came by within just a couple of minutes to confirm our order and assure us it would be gluten-free. She had to inform my aunt that the french fries that came with her order were not gluten-free, and offered her a baked potato instead. I was very pleased with the service and friendliness, and especially with the delicious food. I will visit this restaurant on every trip to Austin now!!
