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.

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
