If anyone is a carnivore and lives near a Rodizio Grill I highly recommend it for your next trip out to eat. We don't go out to eat often, partly because it is expensive and partly because I'm paranoid. Theoretically Rodizio should be my worst nightmare in terms of CC, a parade of men bring skewers of meat directly to your table and carve it right there for you. You simply use your little tongs you were given to grab it. Every diner, every table, reaching for the meat with little tongs. Only, the only two meats that contain gluten don't get carved. They're chicken and they can be simply pushed right off the end.

When you are seated, if you mention right away a "gluten thing" you will get a paper listing what NOT to eat. This is the first thing that astounded me the first time. This isn't some list of the three things you're allowed to eat somewhere. This is, on the most recent visit, a list of a total of 14 things that contain gluten, 5 of them being dessert items, 2 pasta, 1 a salad dressing. Only the remainder could possibly be annoying.

Then they'll come out to your table and bring either cheese bread, hot deep fried polenta, or both. Both are gluten free. Both are melt in your mouth amazing. Where else can we really go and have someone bring us hot bread (and keep bringing us hot bread) that we can eat? Not dry, crusty, gluten-free bread that tries to be bread... Brazilian "bread" that is no such thing at all really but little rolls that you'll quickly come home and start googling a recipe for.

In the few times I have been there I have never gotten gluten sick. I have gotten "dear God I need to learn how to know when to stop eating" sick. I usually pile a creme brulee on top of that for good measure. They're pricey. I always get a limeade, my husband usually gets a soda and I never leave without dessert. Once we include a tip we're over the $70 mark. They are also definitely worth it. I would rather eat out rarely and pay a lot for it than eat out a little more frequently, have crappy options (like 2 salads and boiled chicken, I swear that is what I see sometimes) and crappy waitstaff and get myself glutened by some moron who thought it was okay to just take the croutons off a salad.

Thanks for posting this I saw your pictures the other day. They have one of these in Ft Collins, Co where my son goes to school. We thought about going. It is very pricey and we were taking the 4 of us and a couple of other boys. I hope they move east a bit and put one in KC. It would be a great place for my hub & I to go.

Let me add the link. http://www.rodiziogr...m/all-locations

Did you go to the Trolley Square location?

This place sounds like heaven and well worth the splurge!

Wish we had one here.

We went to the Utah Valley one. We were all the way up in the city in the morning and I expected to be up there all day and eat at the Trolley Square one. Poor hubs thought he was going to freeze to death in the 15-20 degree weather at the zoo and we headed back home to warm up and nap before dinner. The Utah Valley one is pretty close to home, in American Fork.

There is technically another Brazilian grill place called Tucano's that is way closer, but they don't advertise as being so very gluten free friendly and don't make their website (or didn't last I checked) point any of this out either. It is also right next to a University and is staffed mostly by college students. Nothing against kids... but I don't trust a bunch of college age kids to keep me safe. Tucano's also has a much more PARTY!!!! atmosphere, Rodizio is more grown up. I'm not saying Tucano's wouldn't be perfectly safe, and I've been there lots of times pre-celiac. I just am too scared to risk my health to a bunch of college yuppies.

Also, Rodizio has a far higher proportion of ethnic cabana boys meat servers in my experience. Just sayin'. :D You know... if you're into that sort of thing.

Just another tip...if price is an issue, try them for lunch. They have a couple less meats, but the price is substantially lower. In Salt Lake, ask for the gluten-free lime pie...to die for.

It is substantially cheaper at lunch. Unfortunately my husband's (and my) favorites are only served in the evenings. For us it is worth it to go less often and go in the evenings. For people going for the first time to try it, I do highly recommend lunch. It isn't always as busy, and you can decide if it is your sort of thing on a budget instead of spending a small fortune.

    • Hi, I am a 24 year old male , with no family history of Celiac.  I have low testosterone.  they did a Biopsy today and during the scope the Doctor said I have Gastritis in upper stomach.  My lab are as follows:   Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 132 90-386 (mg/dL) F Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 3 0-19 (units) - Negative 0 - 19 - Weak Positive 20 - 30 - Moderate to Strong Positive >30 F Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG 2 0-19 (units) - Negative 0 - 19 - Weak Positive 20 - 30 - Moderate to Strong Positive >30 F t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG 21  H 0-5 (U/mL) - Negative 0 - 5 - Weak Positive 6 - 9 - Positive >9 F Endomysial Antibody IgA Negative Negative  F t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 0-3 (U/mL) - Negative 0 - 3 - Weak Positive 4 - 10 - Positive >10   I am wondering the probability that I have celiac?
    • Get pictures if you can and contact GFWD if true and perhaps we can inform others better about this issue.
    • First this is a old post please check date, second, are you celiac/been tested? You should probably see about a gluten challenge and testing if you have not. Or are you confirmed to have a gluten/wheat allergy? What kind of testing was done to determine this? Or is it a NCGS gluten issue? Sorry for the questions but different people have different issues and it is a bit hard to address them without more information. Perhaps start a new thread and feel free to introduce yourself. We always welcome new members and are glad to help out. You mention allergy but also mention swelling stomach/gut which is is sometime a celiac reaction generally.  
    • My husband & I used to be beekeepers. It would be almost impossible for wheat protein to get into honey. The honey is inside the hive; it's not like it's laying out in the open in a plate or a bowl. Here's a hive.: https://www.mannlakeltd.com/10-frame-traditional-growing-apiary-kit-wood-frames-painted?gclid=CjwKCAiA4vbSBRBNEiwAMorER1htsezzCA5djegusWEGx_DzRHG4xePYQIxxd1paGZy4ibxMR_dSFxoCFUoQAvD_BwE The bees have a narrow opening at the bottom of the hive where they enter & exit & when they enter then they climb upward inside the hive. The bottom section is the brood chamber where the queen lays eggs & eventually become bees. At the top of that section is something called a queen excluder which is generally a metal screen type thing with holes in it. The queen is larger than the workers so the holes are smaller than the queen in order to keep her in the brood chamber. This is so she doesn't go laying eggs all over the hive. The workers fit through the excluder allowing them to go to the supers (boxes) above where the nectar is deposited in honeycomb & turned into honey & when a cell is full, they cap it off. You've seen honeycomb before. So when harvest time comes, the beekeeper takes the full (of honey) supers off the brood chamber & replaces them with empty (of honey) supers so the bees can start filling those up. The full supers get taken to what we call the honey house which is where extraction takes place. Here's a YouTube video of honey extraction. As you can see, this is not anywhere that other food is being made or prepared. Other food does not get done in honey production. It's a class all it's own. There's not going to be any wheat barley or rye there.   
    • I noticed my  gluten sensitivity problem started 2 yeats ago after I had my gallbladder removed.  I had to figure it out on my own what my problem was .my sister -who is a nurse practitioner -suggested to me that maybe I am allergic to gluten? I asked her what is gluten ?that was two years ago I have noticed a definite correlation between all my gastrointestinal problems starting after my gallbladder was removed.  as soon as I accidentally ingest gluten my stomach swells up so tight it feels like it will burst have a terrible pain right at the site of where my gall bladder was removed.  I'm so thankful for the site I've learned so much from all of you it is a hard road to travel to try to find things and you can eat that will not make you sick keep posting. I think it gives all of us encouragement! thank you.
