  1. I used to trust the staff at the Dallas West End location (and one of the owners was often around), ended up having some bad experiences, not to mention that they've gradually walked back their gluten-free options and disavowed assurances against cross-contamination. I wouldn't feel safe eating there anymore. While we still trusted the West End location we tried one that used to be on SMU. Well, I say "tried", but, really, we walked in, asked a couple of simple questions and--based on the answers--said "no thanks" and quickly walked out. In any case, I wouldn't trust any of their st
  2. I was so saddened to see the news (on FB, as y'all have mentioned). All things considered, I think they're the best gluten-free restaurant I've ever visited and I love the fact that the location is so close to the Baltimore airport (which happens to be a destination for Southwest).

Frankly, since I've been gluten-free, I am not sure when I specifically get "glutened" but I can tell you for sure that the cumulative impact of gluten was devastating--extreme fatigue, brain fog, cramps--and quantifiable. I showed marked improvement within a couple of weeks and wouldn't dream of taking the chance that I'd go back to how I was feeling before changing my diet--not to mention the untold consequences that I didn't notice. One of things that troubles me most on these forums is
