gluten-free Restaurants In Raleigh, Charleston, And Savannah

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am going on vacation soon to Raleigh, Charleston, and Savannah. I am from Canada and have never visited this area of the US. I am looking for some gluten-free restaurants in the area (not Outbacks, PF Changs or the other chains).

I read on this site about Solas and Bella Monica (i think) but thats about it. Thanks to anyone who can help.

It sounds like you're looking for more of a sit-down restaurant, which I can't really help you with... but I was in the Raleigh area twice last week and discovered that

a) the mall on 540 has a starbucks that still had quite a few gluten-free orange valencia cakes left

B) Five Guys, which is a burger joint with locations all over the area, made me a ROCKIN' hamburger and fries - all natural meat, and potatoes are the only things fried in the whole store so no CC issues with the fryer. (They do cook with peanut oil and serve peanuts in the store, so if that's an issue you might not want to go there)

I was also in Raleigh last week. I wish I'd tried Five Guys.

MJR6, I know you said no chains but Bonefish Grill is excellent. We get great service. There's one in Raleigh and one in Savannah.

In Chapel Hill (outside of Raleigh) I have eaten three times at Mama Dips, an award-winning Southern homestyle "Soul Food" restaurant. Very knowledgable staff, gluten-free BBQ sauce. Worth the drive from Raleigh (45 minutes from airport).

For good restaurant reviews, try my favorite mag Southern Living online http://search.southernliving.com/sl-result...p;x=23&y=12 and call some restaurants ahead of time, unless some locals give you info here on this forum.

Good luck!

We have a little bit of everything here in Raleigh, so it really depends a lot on what you are looking for, and where you are staying.

I would definitely recommend Bella Monica, their food is great and they have taken a lot of steps to avoid CC. AND you can order pizza at a restaurant... how often does that happen!?

There are a lot of great places in downtown that are not chains, and are pretty knowledgable. I went to a sushi restaurant a couple of weeks ago that was great, Sushi Blues. (And if you don't like sushi, no worries, the menu is quite extensive) My waitress had food allergies, so she understood what was up. She even had the chef make me a salad dressing. My advice would be to call ahead.

A few places to check into:

www.rosiesplate.com (Not a restaurant, but grab n go kind of stuff)

www.mosdiner.net (Don't let the name put you off)

Neomonde

Five Guys is another chain, but I have to give credit where credit is due. their burgers are great!

The Angus Barn

Here is a local blogger who checks out a lot of restaurants: glutenfreeraleigh.blogspot.com

Those are a few off the top of my head... if I think of any more, I'll let you know. Or if you want a specific type of food, let me know.

All great suggestions!

I have a favorite website for traveling gluten-free restaurants. It does have most of the gluten-free chains addresses and phone numbers but it also includes personal businesses. You can update the cities with gluten-free options that you find, I try to as much as possible!

The maps are great! Registry

    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta

He's still going to have to eat gluten even for an endoscopic biopsy. 2 weeks minimum. Plus guidelines say no dx on an endoscopic biopsy alone - you have to have the positive blood to go with it. Even that 2 weeks will deposit more antibodies under his skin if he's got dh.  Let me put it this way. The gut damage is the gut damage & if he's celiac & it sounds like he is but we don't have labs to prove it, then there is a treatment for it. Only 1 treatment for it. A very strict gluten
