Celiac-Friendly Restaurants In Orange County, Ca?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone who is familiar with the area recommend some good restaurants with gluten free options? My husband is there this weekend with our young celiac son. We know about the bigger chains like In-n-Out, Chik-Fil-A, Chipotle, Subway just wondering if there are some other good places as well. They'll be around La Habra Heights, Hacienda Heights, Chino, Huntington Beach.

Also, kind of a totally different subject, but anything in particular he should pick up at Trader Joe's. Do they have gluten-free sunscreen?

I am not a fan of Trader Joe's. Too much of their stuff is processed on shared lines. I don't know about sunscreen. I don't use it.

The Trader Joe's over there always had this fudgy, brownie-like chocolate cookie that was wheat/gluten free. It was amazing. I don't know if they still have them. They came in a brown paper bag. You'd have to check to make sure they didn't change the ingredients. They have good baked Salt & Pepper chips there, too.

As far as restaurants, In N Out burger, Melting Pot, Crabby Joe's, El Pollo Loco, and others I've blogged about when I lived in CA.

The FIND ME GLUTEN FREE app has gotten much better, with many more places near your geo-location.

There should be tons of searchable pizza places on regular search engines, as well as BJ's Brewery & Grille which has a gluten free fried pizookie now, I hear.

We have El Pollo Loco here in AZ, I wouldn't recommend that to anybody.

Their gluten information on their website is poor, and they didn't answer an email I sent to them regarding gluten free items. Not even with a "thank you for your inquiry".

Theoretically they could have a great gluten-free menu, but they aren't yet approaching it that way in Arizona.
