I eat there all the time. I order a Budahs feast with white wine sauce and add in tofu. Make sure you repeat that you want white sauce, no soy sauce.

You can order anything on their menu, just make it with white wine sauce and you are good to go. I also eat their won ton soup with no won tons in it.

Very good!

I don't think so. The Tofu and all of the meat have a light coating of breading on them. That surprised me the first time I got tofu. And often white wine sauce uses white flour as a thickener. Either that or corn starch.

The coating on everything including the tofu is cornstarch! I eat at Stix often. There are four different locations I frequent in Orange County CA. and never have been ill.

Do your homework people. Ask questions, write letters and don't frighten people on this board with these false reports. Ask for the white sauce only and cleaned wok to start and you should have NO problems.

I no longer live in SoCal, so haven't been to a Pick up Stix in ages. They used to have a gluten-free menu online, which I can no longer find. It basically stated, anything with the garlic sauce, with a clean wok. Obviously things like spring rolls were not ok. I contacted them on thier web site to ask where the gluten-free info went to.

I tried one here in Long Beach, CA about two months ago. In store they actually did have an allergan menu - although I see nothing online. Virtually every item listed wheat as an ingredient - other than the pad thai rice noodle bowl and plain old rice. For the pad thai bowls the shrimp is sauteed plain and the chicken is fried but uses a corn starch coating. The store owner sadly said that they don't really have much for people with gluten intolerance and he was not eager to have me eat there. I did end up ordering the pad thai shrimp bowl which was quite good and hearty, but I can't recommend Pick Up Stix to any celiacs or gluten intolerants. Better off finding a Pei wei ...

I just went there today and asked to look at the allergen info. As sbj said, the Pad Thai and plain rice are the only 2 options we have at Pick up Stix.

I have been gluten free for 10 years and have eaten successfully at the Pick Up Stix. I've not had the opportunity to go alot because I just move here. The manager at the Westlake Village, CA one has been great! He told me to tell him how to prepare it, and he would do it. I did not know about the white wine sauce and am excited to go back. Here's what I have successfully eaten:

The Pad Thai with shrimp, and I have had it with the chicken. You can have the sweet sauce it comes in.

The plain brown rice (no soy sauce, no sauce of any sort) stir fried with chicken and veggies is really good.

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
